As teased this morning XSEED Games confirmed the upcoming release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC, that will hit the virtual shelves on the PSN for PSP (with PS Vita compatibility) and on Steam for PC. The game is expected to be published next year.
In addition to this the publisher also announced that the first chapter of the game will be released on Steam as well.
The happy event will happen thanks to a partnership with localization firm Carpe Fulgur, that will take upon itself the task of translating the massive script of the game. I’d seriously hug them right now if I could.
XSEED Games Vice President Ken Berry accompanied the announcement with the following statement:
We are pleased to finally give the fans what they have been requesting so fervently for over two years. There’s been a constant demand ever since we released the original The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and we are extremely grateful for our partnership with the passionate localizers at Carpe Fulgur to finally make it a reality.
Carpe Fulgur Project Director Andrew Dice added:
This is something we’ve had an interest in doing since practically the formation of the company. If you talk about or work with ‘PC gaming from Japan’, as we do, you can’t really ignore Falcom’s huge presence over the past three decades. Trails in the Sky is particularly special, and I’d wanted to work on it ever since the day we started business. I’m thrilled that we will finally be able to bring the game to English-speaking audiences, in partnership with XSEED.
You can’t see my face right now, but there’s a big smile painted on it.
