143w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Jessica Chavez has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky hits PSP on March 29, 2011.
To quote: If an all-consuming desire for a meaty RPG replete with a shiny metal Bracer badge, soundtrack and poster* should sacrifice your wallet to the gaming gods, your PSP is ours for the next 50+ hours of your life. You will be held hostage to its crushing narrative, and YOU WILL LIKE IT.
Salutations, readers. My name is Jessica Chavez, and I have worked on such delights as Half-Minute Hero and Rune Factory: Frontier, and inserted something salacious about Pikkards into Ys I&II. I also toiled for months on the enormity that is The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which hits the PSP on March 29, and I shall tell you about it today.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (also known affectionately as "TitS" thanks to the tender caress of the internet) is an RPG that was first released in 2004 for the PC. It gained fame and notoriety on the computer circuit by virtue of being both massive and the first 3D iteration of its kind within the Legend of Heroes series.
Fast-forward to 2011 and you now have a PSP version crammed with all the original goodness, polished to a blinding sheen...
