[PSP/Vita JRPG Review] Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter is one of the BEST RPGs in the PSP/Vita Library!
Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter is the direct sequel to Trails in the Sky, which released on the PSP in 2011. It follows the story of Estelle, Joshua and the friends they made during the previous game. This game was developed by Nihon Falcom (creators of the very good Ys: Memories of Celceta, along with many other awesome games) and was localized by XSEED Games.
Brandish: The Dark Revenant is a remake of Brandish, a game that was released on the SNES back in 1995. This remake was made by XSEED and Nihon Falcom and features full 3D graphics, and a few new floors to discover. Surprisingly, this title was released to the PSP so it might be one of the last releases we’ll ever see on that console and has full compatibility with the PS Vita.
Vittoria: A medieval kingdom banished deep underground a thousand years ago, brought down by the hubris of its ruler upon the slaying of a god. Lost and forgotten, a new kingdom was built upon the empty hills that mark its grave — but its ruins are still populated by the vengeful, twisted spirits of its once-proud people, and whosoever falls into these depths is most certainly doomed to suffer a torturous demise at their hands.
Bounty hunter Ares, however, is not quite so willing to accept this fate. In this reimagining of a golden era classic, Ares must work his way up to freedom through over 40 floors of unimaginable danger while his archrival, Dela — a powerful sorceress who fell into the ruins with him — is hot on his tail.
Solve brain-busting puzzles, battle unique enemies and forge ever onward in this contemporary dungeon-crawling action RPG from the makers of Ys and The Legend of Heroes!
Unable to remember even his own name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in a city called Casnan, on the eastern end of the Ispani. It is here that he meets Duren, an information dealer who claims to have encountered him previously. Evidently, Adol was last seen heading into the Great Forest of Celceta, a massive expanse of woodland filled with such danger that even the mighty Romun Army fears to tread within.
What happened to Adol inside the Great Forest, and how did he lose his memories? The only way to find out is to step back into the foreboding woods and brave its dangers once more. But Adol will need to have his wits about him, or his second trip into the Great Forest may cost him more than just his past…
Ys: Memories of Celceta is an Action RPG in which you follow amnesiac Ys series hero Adol Christin in his quest to recover his memories. This game was originally released in Japan under the name “Ys: Foliage Ocean in Celceta.”
Playing Ys: Memories of Celceta was my first time in a Ys game, although a few people had already told me that they were great RPGs. I had the chance to review this game, and I’m glad to tell you that it is a perfect addition for the PlayStation Vita RPG library, and you should not hesitate to pick it up… even if you haven’t played a Ys game beforehand!
