A Three-game set has also been announced.

Back in November we brought you the news that Kadokawa Games were busy working on a re-make of the PSP title The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd for PS Vita. The publisher has now revealed more details on the re-make, as well as giving us a release date.

Here’s what you can expect from The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd Evolution:

  • Appearances from characters of the Trails in the Sky series.

The publisher promises that if you have played previous games in the series you’ll have “twice the fun”. If you haven’t played any of these titles before, do not despair as the they also stated that you will enjoy the game regardless, as the story and characters are independent from previous storylines.

  • The potential for dream character showdowns. 

Characters from The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter will make appearances in the new game. Depending on the event, dream confrontations could occur.

  • Maximum of 16 players.

As well as familiar faces, there will of course be new characters to include in your party. There will also be new Crafts and S Crafts in the new title.

  • Familiar system that you know and love.

The Evolution series’ easy play battle system remains the same. There will be new Orbments and various side elements to explore.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd Evolution will be available on July 14th in Japan, with the retail version costing 5,800 yen (£36.46/$51.51) and the downloadable edition being 4,800 yen (£30.17/$42.63). There will also be, unsurprisingly, a limited edition version, which will include an original drama CD and a collection of creation materials. This version will cost 8,800 yen (£55.31/$78.15).

Asides from the new details regarding this re-make, Kadokawa Games also revealed that a “Trails in the Sky Three-Game Set” will soon be available. No pricing details were disclosed, but the set will include:

    Honestly I dont care that much about the Evo versions so long as we are getting the PC originals (which we are). Im not entirely sold on all the “upgrades” like FC and SC I think the original versions character art was better, less generic, and the new music is often worse than the originals 8D

    That said, if they go on to do Evo versions of the Crossbell games, I would love to get those, cause the current chances of getting them any other way seems pretty low.
    Also Falcom Gakuen is amazing and I wish the second season was in english anywhere 8D

    After starting Trails of Cold Steel and really digging it, I took advantage of the recent PS Store sale and picked up the PSP Classics of Trails in the Sky FC and SC at a nice discount. A dozen hours into FC now and really liking it.

    I was a bit worried to read about these Evolution versions in Japan. These are such lengthy games that I’d hate to get invested in these old versions only to have remastered editions come out a few months later. Interesting to read from @disqus_iGg2DCuPWD:disqus that he considers the originals to have superior graphics and music. If only they had trophies! 🏆
