I’m delighted to be able to announce that Ghostlight will soon be publishing a special Collector’s Edition of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky exclusively for the PSP in the PAL region.
For those not in the know, Trails in the Sky is the first game in a new trilogy of the established The Legend Of Heroes series. The game itself is a fantastic RPG which was developed by Nihon Falcom and released in the US by XSEED earlier this year to critical acclaim (it currently has a mighty 80% metarating on Metacritic!)
As anyone who’s been following me on my Twitter will have seen, it’s also a game that I’m a massive fan of. In fact, I enjoyed it so much during our evaluation process that I borrowed a work PSP and took it home to play. One thing’s for sure, it’s a BIG game! So, for those of you who like to keep track of these things, my completed save time was 54 hours 30 minutes and 29 seconds, but there were several areas I managed to miss in my first play through. Still, now we’ve got the game it looks like I’ll get another chance to see them. :)
The highlights for me were the amazing new battle system, where managing the turn order is key to defeating the tougher enemies, and the story itself which is brilliantly written and hilarious in places (just select each treasure chest twice and you’ll see what I mean). And that’s not to mention the fact that the game looks incredible and has an awesome soundtrack!
I’ve had a great time seeing all your guesses as to what the ‘unannounced game’ would be. As promised, here is massive list of everyone who managed to guess which game we were doing. As far as I’m aware, only 4 people managed to guess we were doing Trails in the Sky before I gave my clues. So, well done to michaelius, Ladius, Shuvlarse and ShogunDarius.
Last week's clues seem to have been a bit obvious, so I’ll have to try and be a bit more fiendish next time. It was the number of characters one that gave it away, wasn’t it? So, here is the list of people who guessed Trails in the Sky *deep breath*:
Celedin, FinalMacStorm, Belphegor86, AlanoGuy, ChrisSmithster, Aerodynamisch, Richie, Chris, Phi, Neo-Renzokuken, taizou, Paul Rooney, Ailtin, Cam, Judwai and Markaza. Congratulations to you all.
If you also managed to guess, give me a link to your guess and I’ll give you a mention in my next blog (obviously this only works if your guess was made before the announcement :)).
We don’t have a release date or price for the game just yet, but stay tuned for more information on this and also to find out just what cool loot we’re going to be including in our special Collector’s Edition. Plus, I’m hoping to have some other important news for you in the very near future.
Thanks for now,
