Yesterday, the publisher XSEED tweeted a picture of pigs flying. Today it’s clear why: Trails in the Sky SC is actually coming out. NEXT WEEK. On October 29.
XSEED announced the news in a press release today, specifying that the game will cost $US30 on both PC and PSP. Also: “A release on the European PS Store will follow closely behind this North American debut, with more details to be shared shortly.”
It’s been four and a half years since XSEED released the first chapter of Trails in the Sky — an excellent RPG that ends on a tantalising cliffhanger — and since then, fans have been bugging the publisher non-stop about the second game. It’s been a nightmare to publish, for many, many reasons including script size, technical issues, and all sorts of interpersonal drama.
I’ve been planning a big feature that tells the whole story of Trails SC, so you can expect that at some point soon. For now, all you have to know is that Trails is an excellent game and that the second chapter will be out on PC and PSP (aka: Vita) next week. FINALLY.
