Definite Release Date Get.

Get more Olivier, Joshua and Zin.


And while I'm at it, have some PC Cold Steel. http://gematsu.com/2017/04/legend-heroes-trails-cold-steel-coming-pc-summer
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Sooooooo excited for Trails 3rd!

Thinking I'll get to it after Cold Steel I and II, though.

Anybody else excited for Trails in the Sky 3rd today? I am still playing the second chapter, but as soon as I beat this game I will be going to 3rd. I am still buying it today to support the series. I remember back then looking at first chapter japanese screenshots thinking if this game would ever come in English. Now we are getting third chapter today. It's just really cool.

I forget that the 3rd was coming out until a couple of days ago. Moment I remembered it was coming it, it got put into the next slot on my backlog (after I finish my second playthrough of Persona 5 in a couple of days). I'm looking forward to it because I hear there are a lot of juicy lore bits, but I don't know if I'm "excited" about it. Just the whole Sky trilogy has been dragged out so much at this point. I barely remember playing 1 anymore.

I don't think promoting is something XSEED is very good at....  Or given their tight ship, maybe they don't really allocate that much time to it.

Argh, I think I'll wait for reactions on this one...  I'm a little burnt out after 2nd, even as good as it was.

Argh....  Maybe give it a chapter or two??  I think FC and SC were pretty similar that they were really, really slow burns.  Hell, Cold Steel is doing that to me right now.  These games know climax's but hoo boy, you gotta sit through a shit load of exposition.

I always liked the gradual intros some RPGs have, at least the pretty ones with good music in the backround. There's just something I find really charming about exploring a quaint town/village/city, conversing with all the locals, and learning about the world at my own (usually slow) pace. Maybe it's because it usually winds up being the 'calm before the storm' when the plot ramps up?

...or maybe it's because I've yet to have even a remotely as positive an experience exploring a real life town or city, thus further cementing the game as an escape from reality? Who knows!

They improved on this with Cold Steel II. That game is just pretty fucking excellent. Easily my favorite Trails game I've played. Still working my way through SC, but I don't think it will overtake CSII.

So I just finished chapter 1 in Sky the Third, and so far it is about what I expected...but I've also done some reading on the game beforehand. So for anyone (aka Dice) who is considering getting the game, it probably is important for you to be aware of what the game is like beforehand. The Third really is just a collection of gaiden stories. As a result it is structured very differently from every other game. You are going through a single dungeon and will occasionally run into gaiden stories about a specific character as you advance through. The primary story really is a gaiden about Kevin that is used as a framing device to see what the characters from Sky have been up to since the end of Second Chapter.

It is a chance to have some more fun with characters from the Sky duology as opposed to a full game like every other game in the series. I've been having fun with it so far...but the story structure is kind of janky.
