Check Out a 10 Minute TV Special On PlayStation Exclusive JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki

The popular Japanese satellite TV channel Animax just aired a 10 minute long special on The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, that will be released in Japan on September the 26th for both PS3 and PS Vita.

Thanks to YouTube user 駿月 冬 we get to see the special, broadcasted as part of the Game Maniacs program. It features lovely anime cutscenes, artwork and quite a lot of gameplay introduced directly by Nihon Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo.

You can check out the clip below, and if you’re familiar with the KID TV special videos that were used to promote Killer is Dead, you’re probably going to recognize one of the two ladies talking to Kondo-san.

    I reallly must be a masochist, i continue clicking in the links about this series even knowing their chances….. ah but looks really good.

      Chances aren’t this bad, actually. This is the first Legend of Heroes game that will be on a console that’s actually popular in the west, so sales perspectives would be much better.

        You have no clue, do you?

        That “Sora no Kiseki Second Chapter Scenario Book” is the story script (No talks by NPC in towns, and stuff; I believe) for the second game. I guess the one on the Left is the one for FC (The one that was localized)

        And, with the exception of “the 3rd”, all the other games after SC have even bigger scripts

          I’m not sure where I said that the scripts are small?

          This game is on PS3, which does mean higher sales perspectives. That’s all I said.

          By the way, I worked in localization for five years. I know what it entails. A big script doesn’t mean that there’s no chance for it.

          • DesmaX

            You worked on localizations? Oh, that’s pretty sweet

            But, then again, while it doesn’t mean it’s impossible, it makes for a much harder localization work (I mean, this has more text than any other RPG out there). The only publisher that wants to release these games out there is Xseed, but they don’t really have the power to do so (I remember someone at Xseed reporting that Trails in the Sky took over a year to localize, with 2 translators working on it… when they only had 3 at their office. And that game was the smallest of the series).

            There’s quite a few that have the potential to work on it, and there are new ones that expressed interest in starting to work in the west.

            Kadokawa games is one, and they actually publish the Vita versions of Ao no Kiseki and Zero no Kiseki in Japan, so they do have an established relationship with Nihon Falcom.

            I wouldn’t call it out of the question for now 😀
