As a software developer myself, I’m always curious about how the actual work in a game company is done. I stumbled unto a very interesting post over at the XSEED Blog in which the translator for the upcoming second chapter of the Trails in the Sky series talks about the localization effort.
It’s a very interesting read and it makes it easier to understand the actual effort required to translate a game from Japanese to English!
Any of you interested in this RPG?
Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is an action hack and slash fighting game and is part of a long-running with a large fan base. If you’re a fan of the series, then you’re going to love Onechanbara Z2: Chaos. If you’re new to the series, you might be a bit lost here and there, but the game’s story does a good job of introducing you to the setting and the current situation at hand. Are you ready to slice and dice some zombies?
The Legend of Heroes is a RPG series which got its first Playstation release on the PSP a few years ago, titled “Trails in the Sky“. I played it a lot, and loved every second on it. You can imagine how happy I was to learn from NIS America (which is publishing this game in Europe with XSEED Games taking over publishing duties in North America) that a new website has been launched, and offers new information about this upcoming release, namely new features of the game as well as a release window!
Now, the follow-up “Trails of Cold” is set to release later this year on both the PS3 and the Vita, which made me VERY happy! Another good thing I noticed in the new site is that the story can also be enjoyed by newcomers, meaning that completing the previous game isn’t mandatory to play this one.
The events of Trails of Cold Steel are expertly told so that longtime Trails veterans and newcomers to the series alike can equally enjoy its detailed, highly nuanced storyline.
As we can see from the various screenshots they provided on the new site, this game is a HUGE step up from the previous PSP-only release.
I’m REALLY hyped for this new game! Any of you interested in this RPG? Let us know in the comments below!
About the game:
Taking place on the same continent as the fan favorite Trails in the Sky offshoot of Nihon Falcom’s storied The Legend of Heroes franchise, Trails of Cold Steel (Sen no Kiseki in Japanese) is the first in the series to tread Erebonian soil and explore the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned powerhouse nation in detail. With a standalone story that also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series, players can enjoy school life and bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, take advantage of speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system, and take part in dramatic events that stand to shift the balance of power between Erebonia’s feuding nobility and commoners.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel releases worldwide on Fall 2015, and will be published by NIS America in Europe, and by XSEED Games in North America.
I’m playing Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy on Vita to bring you a review for the game, so I figured today might be a good opportunity to bring the spotlight over Unchained Blades, an excellent dungeon crawler published by XSEED Games on PSP a couple of years ago.
