The Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: It is rare to see a lot of new things in a role playing game these days. Most are following the same tried and true themes that have been established for years. The Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky shakes things up in a variety of ways. The system is interesting, and hard to describe. The orbments contain quartz which are what gives the player elemental magical skills. You also need energy points to cast but that comes up later.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Dear reader, the videogame industry is a strange place full of success stories and wild origins for many titles. Case in point, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky , a low budget, old-school RPG that started its life on PC's in Japan seven years ago! In fact, the whole series of Legend of Heroes has been given a second life recently by getting a fresh port for each game over the past few years onto the PSP.

Tread Softly and Carry a Big Stick

  • Excerpt: In the grand history of unlikely events, the surprising localization announcement by XSEED Games of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky probably doesn't rank very high, but for the gaming community it was a pretty huge shock. Released in Japan in 2004, Trails in the Sky gained a reputation for being one of the largest and wordiest RPGs ever made, and it was just part one of a trilogy.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt

GameCritics.com
26 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The budding relationship between Estelle and her adopted brother Joshua is weird enough, but was it necessary for nearly every NPC to peer-pressure them into it?
  • Pros: Configuring my Orbment to get access to a powerful area-effect spell in the first chapter of the game.
  • Cons: At least half of the game's playtime is spent with only two party members of a potential four.

  • Excerpt: Japanese Role Playing Games are a rarer breed nowadays. I'm not talking about the Final Fantasy's and Dragon Quests' with their massive fan bases and well known franchises, which are few and in-between, but rather the smaller, quirkier, less famous titles. Couple this with publisher's general aversion to releasing these games which take considerable time and money without guaranteed high profits, and you have an equation for one serious problem.

Happy Trails, Until We Meet Again

RPGamer
8 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I imagine only those closely following the Japanese RPG scene knew what Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki was before it was announced for localization. Those who did know of this title praised it for its great cast of characters and wonderful story. Being such a story-centric game is also one of the biggest reasons that it took so long for it to make it to North America, as the sheer volume of dialogue to translate and edit was too much for most publishers to want to...
