Trails in the Sky SC Localization Reaches First Major MilestoneAnd it comes with some tantalizing promises.03.01.15 - 2:42 PM
XSEED has announced on its official tumblr
that it has finished translating all the text for Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC
(SC stands for "Second Chapter").
This announcement marks a major milestone for localization and means that after almost four years, the game is nearing a Western release. The translators attribute the extended development time in part to the depth and breadth of NPC interactions available in SC. The game will not only continue Estelle and Joshua's story, but will witness an evolution in the lives of many of the game's NPCs. XSEED also promised "more Olivier than ever."
Moreover, the finished translation is not the only good news XSEED had to share. According to the localization team, SC's main scenario is about twice as long as the first game's, and it also sports an improved magic system, fishing mini-game and playable casino games. There will also be a major choice early in the game that creates an important branching story path for added replay value.
While there is no official release date for Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC for either North America or Europe, XSEED hinted at more details soon and promised that the game is worth the wait.
