April 18, 2007 - It's hard to believe, but someone has finally found a way to fill a UMD disc with game content. Falcom's latest Legend of Heroes game, Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki SC as it's known in Japan, will be the first game to use two UMDs, the company revealed today.
Set for Japanese PSP release on 9/27, Sora no Kiseki is the sequel to Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki FC, both originally PC RPGs. FC stands for First Chapter. We'll let you figure out what SC stands for. FC was released for the Japanese PSP back in September but has yet to make its way to international audiences.
We've included first screens of this first dual UMD game linked below. It may not look like much, but we're presuming the need for two discs means that we can expect a ton of story from this latest PSP RPG.

I presume that sony will update the firmware to allow multi umd loading. This means that another OE firmware will have to be created. But yea maybe a prx could be made to allow this? who knows. Only time will tell.
