    It's the sequel to a very well liked JRPG on the PSP and it has been delayed many times but finally the wait is over. It's a direct sequel to Trails in the Sky sans the SC and should only be played after that one. Fear not though, that game is also on PSN. Launch price is $29.99 and it is a digital-only release.

    I really liked the first game and it ended with a cliffhanger so I have been looking forward to this for a long time. Fans of the genre should definitely consider checking out the first game which is available on both PSP (+Vita) and Steam.

    \o/ Spotted XSeed's blog post too. This is great news as I adored TitS but assumed we'd never see SC. I know I'll have to wait a few extra weeks for this to get an EU release, but it'll be so worth it!

    Can't wait to see what Estelle and Joshua get up to next!

    Sucks Europe had to wait a little longer but least now you know the game is finally coming. Soon.

    Trails in the Sky was among my favorite PSP JRPGs so it feels really good to finally get the cliffhanger resolved. The Vita has been starved for good JRPGs so these upcoming PSP games feel like a solid addition to the library too.

    Awesome news. I played FC a couple of years ago and loved it. Too bad there is no UMD release, but I will definitely download this.

    Once this game is out XSeed will start getting questions about Third Chapter to complete the story arc.

    I'm sure XSeed have said the won't be doing 3rd. I'm sure I've read that Joshua and Estelle's story is concluded in SC with 3rd more of a spin off

    Nothing on PSN yet. :( If anyone is interested in the first game, it has a stealth sale on PSN for $10 right now in North America. It's pretty rare for it to see a sale.

    I was just reading the forums over at XSeed. They already own the rights to localize Third Chapter, and if SC sells well then they might do it. However, I am guessing that it would be PC only unless the PSP version of SC does very well.

    XSeed has also registered the domain names for a couple of other Legend of Heroes games (Zero and Ao). Supposedly the PC version of FC sold well enough to make them keen on continuing the series. So long as each new iteration sells well enough they will keep going.

    I am just waiting for my credit card to roll over mid-month and then I will download SC from the Playstation Store.

    On a related note, I hope the Summon Night 5 sells well so that Gaijin Works will be keen on getting the rights for Summon Night 6 on Vita, or maybe going back to localize Summon Night 3 and 4 on PSP.

    Who would have though that in late 2015 I would be buying two new release, large scale PSP games and have hopes for others in the future.

    I think I'm going to wait until my semester ends with starting this. I've been looking forward to it so long that another month won't kill me. I also want to dedicate some time too it without it interfering too much with other things.

    I won't be playing TiS SC anytime soon but I bought it to support Xseed so hopefully one day they will bring the 3rd chapter and Zero/Ao

    I got impatient and bought SC last night. I booted it up quickly and when Grancel castle appeared I was immediately back in this awesome world of Trails in the Sky. It does not feel like it has been almost three years since I played FC. Now I need to finish up the RPG that I currently have in progress so that I can start on this one.

    This game is one of the few PSP games that was on two UMDs originally. It downloads each UMD separately which is why there are two files. There might be more but this one and Type-0 are the only dual-UMD releases I know of, not counting double packs with one UMD for each game.

    I'm in a similar place to you - I started Chapter 9 earlier today. I wasnt too keen on some aspects of chapter 8, but normal service has been resumed in #9 :)

    It doesn't feel like there's much more to go!

    And finished \o/
    Just over 65 hours on the clock and I loved it. What a terrific story - really epic across both games and a decent happy ending (albeit with a few tantalising loose ends). TitS remains one of my favourite JPRGs and if you enjoyed FC, then you need to play SC to see the conclusion of Joshua and Estelle's story
    Brilliant!

    I wonder if the game sold well. XSeed has stated that if the PSP version sells well then they may consider translating the other PSP Legend of Heroes games.
