The Legend of Heroes: Trails Series - Localization Blog #2
This is Brittany, Localization Producer at XSEED,
editor/graphic text monkey/what-have-you for Trails in the Sky the 3rd,
and current head for the Trails series in general. I’m very eager to write this
blog, because it’ll be full of updates for FC, SC, and the 3rd.
Let’s get the 3rd’s status out of the way:
schedule-wise, we’re currently doing great! When we announced this game last
year, I was dead set on getting it out by spring 2017, so I’m very proud to say
that goal is being met. Trails in the Sky the 3rd is coming to PC in
English on…a date you’ll find out very, very soon.
Barring typos or odd QA hiccups (which can happen when
“smashing” PSP and PC code together to get the best of both worlds), the game
is in pretty good shape and we’re right where we need to be. It’s cleaning up
| QA is a sexy time and I won’t let you take it away from me.
I’d like to start by properly warning Trails newbies first:
please play Trails in the Sky’s first and second chapters before playing the 3rd.
Heck, please play them before even reading this blog! Although the 3rd is not a “third chapter” since the Estelle and Liberl’s story wrapped up with SC,
this story still relies on knowledge gained by playing those two games.
Internally, I’ve said before that the 3rd has only one target audience:
people who’ve played both Trails FC and SC. Cold Steel fans will understand some of the lore
dumping, but other details will be quite lost on lost you. Though, hey, if you
want to purchase it anyway and help support my coffee fund, I ain’t gonna stop
you. (Please buy it and play it later. I’m desperate, here.)
