Xseed is currently teasing something on their Twitter.

It seems to be an extreme closeup on a guy from SC.

If this tease is for this:

(http://i39.tinypic.com/20rtwg3.png)

Then what happens with the HD Edition of FC? We are just not getting it because they released the PSP version of it?

Is not like I'll be getting either if they come out, I'm just wondering.
Title: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Announced for Steam/PSP
Post by: Zendervai on September 05, 2013, 11:50:39 PM
The guessing is leaning towards the PC version. But regardless of the version, wouldn't it be relatively easy to release FC in whatever version as well?

I don't want to get TOO excited in case it's not what we're hoping. But the SECOND that gets announced(if it does), I'll be jumping for joy! It's a game that I didn't realize I wanted so bad until I learned that I probably couldn't have it. And the first was so much better than I first anticipated.


I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed. :)

Given the strain on resources the TitS series is to a small company like XSeed, it's probably the PC version.  One can dream.  HD would be lovely even if it's PSN only.  At least Falcom is good with respect to multi-platforming it.

Post by: Kevadu on September 06, 2013, 12:24:39 AM
Tom Lipschultz has said many times on the Xseed forums that if the game comes out it's extremely likely the PC release will be first.  That doesn't mean that they're giving up on other versions of the game, but the PSP market is pretty much dead and there's more red tape to deal with for console releases.

Besides which, it's not even clear that SCEA will allow the PS3 versions because they don't have trophies.  Sucks, but that seems to be their policy.

Well, if I can run it on my Mac, that would be fine too.

My PC is aged for the better part of 10 years.  Good thing about Falcom games is how....technically visually unimpressive they are that I'm sure just about any PC can run it (or even Boot Camp'd Mac); but I'm still kinda worried since the ram or whatever gets sucked up dry even with just a little multi-tasking.  Dammit! 

Anyways, I actually was starting to think that us getting this was a pipe dream given the size of the second game.

Also, Tom is the fucken man.  He's the best damn PR guy I've seen in ages (although, I think half of that has to do with the fact he's a big Falcom-nerd).

More gifs to celebrate:

I dared to hope that this would be the game they were teasing...then I saw tweets sort of confirming it.

All I can say is.

Yes. Shut up and take my money. I will boot camp my Mac if I have need to in order to play this on a Windows Platform.

I was dreading finishing Trails in the Sky because I knew there wouldn't be a sequel readily available. Now I can rest knowing otherwise!

Well, now I have a dilemma.  I own TitS on PSP.  Physical copy.  I want to link a playthrough from 1 to 2.  I am also planning on buying a Vita in 2014.  My options:

-Buy 2nd Chapter on PSN, play it on my PSP.  Move it to Vita later when I eventually get one. 
-Buy TitS on Steam, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Steam, play that. 
-Buy a TitS on Vita, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Vita, play that. 

Right now leaning towards option 1, honestly.  Option 3 will probably happen eventually, but a year or two down the line when I want to replay all of them. 

...does anyone know if XSEED has their PSN games on sale often?

The first TitS will be on Steam later this year.  The second one will be on PSN and Steam in 2014. 

The earlier Legend of Heroes games are in a weird order in their Western releases and my recommendation... is not to play any of them.  The PSP versions of LoH 1 through 3 (which I think are actually 3 through 5?) are bad.  Just play Trails in the Sky, as it's the first chapter in a new saga, and then wait for the second chapter to come out next year.

Nope, it's actually pretty simple.  You have to have the Content Manager for Vita installed on your PC.  It'll give you a folder where all of your PSP game files from the Vita will live and you can just connect your PSP & dump save files to that folder.  Then you use the content manager and transfer them to Vita.  Problem solved.

MAC: But seriously, how does XSEED plan on dealing with the continuous flood of Kiseki games from Falcom? Would there be opposition to another publisher taking on the more recent games or is everyone else afraid to touch those as well?
KB: We ask ourselves that every day. We would love to release all of them if we could, but most of the later Kiseki games are even bigger than Trails SC, so I just don't see how it's physically possible. Other publishers are free to discuss with Falcom directly if they are up to the challenge.

Kinda hurt, but definitely makes sense given the sheer quantity of stuff there is to translate (Ao/Zero, and allegedly Sen is even bigger).

If you have it, you can also use a PS3, IIRC. Just connect you PSP to the PS3, transfer over your PSP save file, then connect the Vita and use the Vita's content manager to copy the PSP save data from the PS3 to the Vita.

There shouldn't be. There's a third game, but it was originally a two parter and they just went 'hey, how about we make another?' after they finished.

While I'd love for us to get Ao/Zero, if any other of the series makes it way over here after SC, I'm gonna guess it will be Sen.

Thank GOD!! I beat the last one a little over a year ago and I'm STILL itching to play the next one. Which proves it's lasting power. I just worry that we may not see the end of the story. I don't know anything about the 2nd or the 3rd game, but I would think if it's a trilogy, the story doesn't end after the 2nd game. And if they are done after that game, then we may forever go wanting for that complete ending!

Either way, I'm thrilled. :)

 Bit disappointed that they're outsourcing translation. This'll be a big test for carpe fulgur. They've done good work with stuff like recettear, but the games they've done are silly and really don't have a single serious moment in them. And while there's room for silly in tits, hopefully they can keep up the pace when it's time for more dramatic scenes.

 But the outsourcing does free up xseed to not release Rune Factory 4.

I'm torn between which version to choose, I may end up getting both. I don't especially enjoy playing games on handhelds, but I'd like to import my original clear data, and even though I could use someone elses file to import into the PC version, it wouldn't be quite the same. I could buy the PC version of FC, but I'm not one for replaying games in quick succession, seeing as I only finished it for PSP a few months ago. That said, I really want Xseed to release more PC games, so buying them would send the right message.

From what I've gathered, Third Chapter is more an extended epilogue than anything. The plot is mostly separate with a couple side-plots resolved and some character development.

From what I understand TC is more closely related to Zero and Ao than FC and SC.  It sets up some things that will be important later, but doesn't really continue the story from the first two.  Which makes the naming scheme kind of confusing, I know.  At any rate, SC isn't a terrible place to stop.

Anyway, this is pretty much what I expected.  With the amount of time SC is taking I can't see them doing the rest of the series.  I  plan I tackling the rest of the series in Japanese after SC.  Honestly I would have done it already, but the language in these games is quite a bit more difficult than your average JRPG.  But I'm studying everyday so I hope to be at the point where I'm a bit more comfortable with it soon...

This is a good opportunity to shamelessly self-promote, so I will: remember that Tom Lipschultz of XSEED will be on the next episode of Rhythm Encounter, which features nothing but Falcom music, including Kiseki stuff. The episode will be up in the coming days, so please keep an eye/ear out! :)

I wish I could use the TV out, but I don't have an HDTV and most SDTVs in Europe don't have component inputs, just SCART (which is great, no PSP cable though) and composite (awful). I've got the composite cable for the PSP but it looks incredibly bad, and the text in RPGs is unreadable.

When I plug my PSP into my HDTV it displays in a tiny window with mostly black around it.  It's just displaying at the PSP's resolution (which is well below the TV's) and leaving the rest of the pixels blank.  I never really figured out what to do about that, but it's a really annoying problem.  You have to sit close to the TV to even make out text sometimes...

PSP games look great on the Vita, though.  The screen is so big and bright I find myself not really missing the lack of TV out.

Golly, I had no idea... I've only used it via the component cables on two different HDTV's with zoom on and it looks gorgeous. So much so, I prefer playing PS1 titles on my TV via this method as opposed to using the PS3 with smoothing on when I have the option.

I just pawned my psp off because nothing has come out in 2 years that I have wanted to play besides tactics ogre. Fuck xseed for being so damn slow with an announcement.

There are many reasons why the announcement took so long, the largest of which being that this localization is one of the biggest in industry history. It wasn't an intentional "let's keep them in the dark" kind of thing. There's a lot of good information at Carpe Fulgur's blog: http://www.carpefulgur.com/drakblog/

Thankfully, you can get both FC & SC on Steam, so as long as you have a low-to-mid range PC, you'll be good to go. :)

Anyways I think if we see the HD editions it'll be after the PSP/PC versions hit and if they're THAT successful, and if SCEA requirements don't get in the way. Better to stay pessimistic on that front I think.

Is it too much to ask to get more than one traditional console JRPG a year?

Less drugs, more like being on a crappy laptop that I can barely post from, let alone do proper research on when a post calls for it.

I think what it was that I was getting at was that aside from the XSeeD/Carpet Fulgore stuffs JRPGs have a difficult time getting onto Steam, especially through Greenlight.

Of course, this does defeat the point of my previous post since CrossSEED/Carp Fullgirl are behind this to begin with. So yes, while I'm not on drugs, there are days when I could use some kind of anti-depressant so I won't have to be so salty all the time (even though I still don't think that its worth the drawbacks and the side effects that those come with).

Most of the indie JRPGs on Greenlight are deliriously crappy RPG Maker things.

I've played around with VX Ace. It's pretty robust. Those things have NO excuse for being as bad as they are.

I don't think he's completely off.

There's a certain amount of PC users who refuse to play any JRPG because they view the genre as a set of stereotypes and nothing more, even though they're not necessarily true for every game.

Yet when one shows up on steam, they'll magically show a willingness to try it.

There's a bit of a double standard.


That said, I really, really, really hope, as a console gamer, that we don't see JRPGs going steam only.

That would suck.

And no, I'm not saying don't put them on steam, just don't make them exclusive.

I just don't like the general trend of everything going digital only.

(FYI: I'm really an old poster called badsanta; however, I completely forgot my password, and my email had changed too, so I had to make a new account. With that said...)

I just gotta say, F' yeah! I played the first game a few years back, and loved it. ...And then a year or two later, it started to look like there was no hope of getting the second game over here, especially since there's now 4 games after this one. (After SC, I mean.) But, at the least, we are finally getting SC. I'd still like to see the other games come over here at some point, but even if they don't, so long as we get SC and wrap up the story of the first game, I'll be a happy, happy man. :D

(Also, do we know how it's going to be released on the PSP? Because, if it's digital, well, I've been having troubles getting my PSP to connect the internet for a while. I'd like to just use my old save data, but if there's not going to be a physical release, it might be better to just go with Steam. ...The problem with that is that I think the PSP version of SC has some extras that the PC version doesn't have, and not just voice-acting; mainly, a couple of extra late-game playable characters, both of which did show up in FC. So, I'm kind of not sure just what to do here. Anyone got any info or advice?)

There is a 0% chance of a physical PSP release.  Nobody is printing UMDs anymore, not to mention that the special two-UMD cases were never produced outside of Japan in the first place, since no multi-UMD games have ever been released overseas (honestly, Trails in the Sky SC and Final Fantasy Type-O are the only two UMD games I even know of).  Then there are all the usual concerns about getting shelf space at retailers, etc for a PSP game in 2014.  Come on, it's just not going to happen.

Good point about the PSP only content. Since I'm getting the STeam versions, here's hoping they... idk add that into te PC version or something.

Voice acting I could take or leave though.

There's minor nitpicks I have that other outlets are guilty of (please don't assume a translated name, at least not without mentioning the original name too), but they do seem to be one of the sloppiest news sources for Japanese games. And the least focused, they SEEM mainly focused on import coverage only to turn around and cover Criterion for some reason.

To be fair, at least they're reporting about "looking into" and not as fact.  Other sites do similar for a "rumor mill" (e.g.: X might be the new James Bond!  Y might direct it!!)
And with the amount of waves SC's announcement caused on Siliconera, there shouldn't be any surprise that it's "on their reporting radar".  Every fucking tiny ass tidbit about the Tales series is also "reported" on because it generates them views.

As someone who kinda lost hope on this then to hear a niche-ass title is actually gonna see the light of day and [potentially] other venues definitely gets me excited, but yeah, it's hardly worth looking into as a guaranteeeeee.  Not like I'm an active body on the XSeed facebook page.

I don't get the negativity on this.  News like this doesn't hurt anyone UNLESS you read into it.

Dice, it's because "looking into" doesn't mean anything.  This wasn't even official PR or something.  Somebody asked about the PS3 version and an Xseed rep said they were looking into it, but emphasized that the PC and PSP versions were the priority.  It's kind of silly making a whole news story out of that.  It would be more newsworthy if they weren't at least looking it.  I mean, it's another potential avenue to sell the game and it seems like basic due diligence to at least look into it.  That doesn't mean it will amount to anything, as the barriers are significant (like lack of trophy support for PSP remasters and SCEA's policies...).

The article is click-bait, nothing more.

As a student in the advertising arts and other lib art shit and occasional online seller, I say "kudos" to their click-bait. :P

Like I said, i don't think it's a big deal, I'm kinda "lighter side of life"-ing this though.  Clearly it's a response to the amount of traffic Siliconera gets posting on XSeed stuff and especially given the reaction to SC.  They even post on teaser sites which, who gives a fuck, teasers are 90% full of crap.  Best way not to care is don't click.  I'm not looking into this, but it's just "fun" to read I guess.

Either way, I'll take Siliconera news any day over whatever the shit Kotaku does anymore

I just don't care enough to criticize it. 

Between them and other games sites I get my /real/ (i.e., relevant) news.

From what I can tell they still deliver actual updates in a timely fashion, and Japanese news in English before other sites do.  The title of their article on SC summed up more than enough for me to even click the link and doesn't hint things as fact, and that's enough for me since I'm usually skeptical on updates like that anyway..

XSeed seem to be more.... hesitant about that; by that I mean I don't think they wanna do it, because it's just too much for such a little team.  But yeah, I'd like to think large sums of money from SC's release could maybe paint the picture otherwise?
