XSEED picks up the next The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky after many requests from fans.

The first chapter of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky came to North America for the PSP in 2011. Two and a half years later, XSEED has announced they will publish the second chapter, a direct continuation of where the first left off. The second will be available on the Vita and on PC next year.

"We are pleased to finally give the fans what they've been requesting so fervently for over two years," XSEED Vice President Ken Berry said. "There's been a constant demand ever since we released the original The Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and we are extremely grateful for our partnership with the passionate localizers at Carpe Fulgur to finally make it a reality."

Carpe Fulgur is a localization company that specializes in bringing Japanese games over to the West for an English-speaking market. They have worked on localizing Recettear, a game about an item store, and Chantelise, a game about two sisters on a quest to find a witch.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC features a customizable combat system, a large cast of characters, and an in-game newspaper. "Players are responsible for shaping the world, and will see direct repercussions from their actions as the game unfolds," according to a press release.

The first chapter, already on the PSP, will also be released on Steam at some point this winter.

YES! The PC desperately needs more JRPGs. Its the perfect platform for them so I welcome as many quality JRPGs to the PC as possible.

I was so damn happy when I saw this on their twitter and all the fan speculation that pointed to LoH. So glad the wait is almost over, and it's wonderful that both chapters 1 and 2 are heading to steam as well.

I'll gladly buy both off steam just for support, because XSEED has been one of those great publishers that have yet to really disappoint. With this news and Ys: Celeceta collectors edition, I am just throwing money at them :D I'll be playing Second chapter on my Vita primarily of course, though it's a SLIGHT shame that this is the PSP version of the game and not the PS3 remaster...no biggie though.

Keep on rocking XSEED!!

This is a good day for PC gamers, PC desperately needs more JRPGS

Now for Zero no Kiseki... One can dream right?

Edit: After Final Chapter and such I meant. :D

One chapter at time lol. I'd still rather see them get chapter 3 out before moving o0nto Zero no Kiseki series :p

I do hope this possible new-found partnership with Carpe Fulgur means that maybe they can localize their games on a quicker and more consistent basis. For the longest time, they essentially had like two people to do localizing for Legend of heroes....but now they got a whole team.

The picture makes me think of Skies of Arcadia. Loved that game and this one looks very interesting.

FUCK YEAH!
I've waited so damn long for the next game to come out!
The game was simply awesome and I've now waited 2,5 years for XSEED to tell us they would localize the whole trilogy!^
Well done XSEED!

Would love if this came to Wii U since it could use more JRPG's and is the perfect platform for that genre.

That and the 360 just to be fair.

Xseed is without a doubt the bro-est gaming company out there. This will be the first time I buy a game twice on release, SC deserves it.

Yeeeeeesss! This is a good week. First the announcement of Mighty No.9 and now this? Just awesome. i finished the first chapter last year and the ending really left me wanting to see the next chapter. the game play is pretty solid too. I'll buy the first one and play it again when it comes on Steam.

*Manly Tears*

XSEED and Atlus...<3

Really Sony's consoles have been the main ones for JRPG games. Nintendo already has Monolith Soft which made Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, etc. Then on the 360 it's been tried before and JRPGs just don't sell well on the system at all. Remember all those exclusive JRPGs that were on the 360 and were later ported over? The sold better on the PS3 than on the 360.

PC on the other hand is sorta been untapped when it comes to JRPGs so if anything they need it the most.

I've always wanted to play this classic-style JRPG, but never really found the time to do so. Now, I'm considering it. Heard it's freaking long.
And it'd be one thing if it got a crap localization, but they're getting the guys that localized Recettear? Yeah, everything about this is looking good. But the real good news?

Fuck yeah.
Besides, you can't have a game with an opening this badass-sounding and NOT play it:
