So do I have to finally play LoH 1-3 for this one to make sense?

Negative. Those were part of the Gagharv Trilogy and were terrible remakes by Namco Bandai of the original Falcom versions. Trails in the Sky is entirely in its own story, which this is the first game of its series. XSeed has already done voices for all three of the games in Trials in the Sky, so we'll see all three at some point or another. Unfortunately though it'll take a while for them to fully localize it due to the games very large script.


EDIT: I always spell Gagharv incorrectly. -_-

Weird. So it shows as 1-3 weeks now on Amazon if you view the item itself, mine is pre-ordered but nothing has happened with actually 2 day shipping.


99% of the games say that on release day its a computer glitch.. they usually fix it later in the day ...

i should have my Via gamefly for 22.49 thursday (did keep it now as soon as it shipped)

That's racist.

Mine shows it'll arrive tomorrow too. I wonder if it'll require a firmware update to play?

Can't wait to play with TitS

I don't see what was terrible about them. I enjoyed them all, especially the story and graphics. Gameplay is very basic, but gets the job done.

My copy should arrive tomorrow :) I should be finishing Mass Effect 2 tonight, so I will be able to start tomorrow.

I should probably correct myself a little. When compared to the originals, the Namco-Bandai (Though I guess it's really Microvision) remake falls flat on its face and dragged across the pavement. Otherwise it's sub-par filler. Doesn't do anything particularly interesting, new or overly enjoyable. It's not something you really notice unless you play the original PC version.


You should be able to understand somewhat after you play through this game. There's just so much more to Legend of Heroes that you don't really see with just those three remakes.

If this game sucks I am sending a bill for $28.99 directly to Draekon. Will go to small claims court if I have to.

Pssh. If you end up hating the game, then you'd sell it back and recoup 80% of your losses. Though I probably shouldn't have talked it up so much because you'll end up setting your expectations too high.

Trails in the Sky has flaws, but it's also extremely charming, and I had a blast during the 41 hours spent completing the game.

seems like another long game that is going on my backlog would play it 2nite but im stuck playin

All I want a is GOOD JRPG. If this game meets this criteria, we are good. I am thinking it has a better chance than most JRPGs released the past few years since it is actually 5 years old. The past few years have been shit but this game was actually made when JRPGs were still good, outside of remakes and the very occasional decent game.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The only ones I've thoroughly enjoyed this generation that were new and not remakes of something else we've got have been Valkyria Chronicles and Tales of Vesperia. There are a few others that weren't bad, but they weren't exciting or overly fun for me.




Also, my copy was awaiting me when I got home from work just now. Time to begin my run.

Played the very beginning. Not sure what to say so far, can't really form an impression yet. I'm sure I'll be able to play enough this weekend to see if I like it.

This game is indeed good from what I've played so far, DoK. Like you said, since it's 7 years old when JRPGs were still good, you will like this game. The localization is excellent, the story isn't quite the cliche tripe you see in many other games today, and the battle system requires some thought, and is challenging, but not in a frustrating or burdensome way.

There's VA, but it's very minimal from what I've seen (I'm at 2nd dungeon). It's only present in snips in the victory dialogue (one or two words) after a battle, kinda like Star Ocean 1 & 2.

I'm kind of impressed at how similar the battles are to the Bandai games. It has the "meter build up" moves you can use to interrupt an enemies turn, you have to move within range of attack. It seems more strategic though, because your specials and spells take time to use. You also get to see what the turn order is. (I've played all three Bandai games, FYI)

I've put 1.5 hours into it and it's gone by fast. Looking forward to playing more of this.
