XSEED Confirms The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd North American Release

In celebration of the upcoming five-year anniversary of the North American debut of developer Nihon Falcom’s RPG adventure, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, XSEED Games today revealed details on upcoming entries in the series. Most importantly, XSEED has confirmed their localization of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd. Planned for release in 2017, more information on the third and final chapter of the Trails in the Sky series will be shared in the coming months.

XSEED also released the first ever English-language screenshots — seen below — of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, which is slated to launch this coming fall.
To mark the occasion, the original Trails in the Sky is being offered digitally at 50% off its regular list price, both via the PlayStation Store and various Windows PC outlets, for one full week starting today. Its sequel, Trails in the Sky SC, is also being offered at 30% off during that same timeframe.

Furthermore, XSEED Games has shared that among all English releases of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, the Trails franchise has sold a combined total of more than 350,000 units to date. The Trails saga is developer Nihon Falcom’s most popular and best-selling franchise in their entire 30+ year history.

“These last five years have been quite an adventure for us,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games. “While we’ve had our share of struggles with the series in regards to its often lengthy and arduous localization, I can say with confidence that what we’ve achieved far outweighs any hardships. We are without question committed to our fans, and are absolutely humbled by their overwhelming support. And in return, we promise to do our best to ensure that these two entries in Nihon Falcom’s beloved Trails series receive the same amount of dedication that previous releases have seen.”

Slated for release this fall for PS3 and PS Vita, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia in Trails of Cold Steel, with a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.
