The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Limited Edition
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is the first of a new trilogy in the established The Legend of Heroes RPG series. A highly detailed 3D world, beautiful original soundtrack, and unique strategic battle system showcase production values a generation beyond the previous iteration. An epic story about preserving the peace against all odds spanning over 50 hours of gameplay, with numerous optional side quests, makes this the biggest adventure ever available on a handheld system.
In the peaceful town of Rolent of the Liberl Kingdom, a young girl named Estelle and her friend Joshua, who had been taken in by her family years earlier, prepare to take their first steps to join the legendary guild of the Bracers. Bracers are considered the peacekeepers and protectors of order that owe allegiance to no country or government. In Liberl their guild has flourished since a brief war some ten years prior after an invasion from the Erebonian Empire to the north, and their efforts have made peace a lasting prospect.
In the course of their journey to become full-fledged Bracers, Estelle and Joshua begin to see the peace threatened by a dark side of the ruling government that plots to overthrow the Liberl queen, Alicia. Together they travel the world on their quest to become Bracers and slowly unravel the truth behind the mastermind who seeks to bring war back to their borders.

This game is actually quite text heavy with a memorable cast. Joshua is OP later in the game. I've beaten this on Hard and Nightmare mode and earned both ultimate weapons for Estelle and Joshua.
Gameplay is easy to understand. You get skills, earn CP whenever you do or take damage. Its sort of like a Limit Break from FF7. Once you reach 100 CP, you can do their special attack, if you save it to 200 CP, it does even more damage. You can set it where it interrupt enemies turn if you use the S-Skill properly. Normal skills also need CP.
Orbments for your party members are similiar to Materia from FF7. Its how your characters use magic. Depending on which one you link, changes the spells you have. It's a strategy turn based game where positioning is pretty important. Certain character's orbments links are more flexible than others.
The music is quite good, not as good as Ys which is also developed by Falcom, but this series is known for its great story. Graphics is somewhat outdated. Remember this game came out in 2006 for Japan. Quite possibly the best rpg the psp library has to offer.
Xseed put a little humor every time you check an empty treasure chest. Try it out.
What you get out of the box:
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky psp game.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky CD Musical Selections consisting of 33 soundtracks.
Double sided world map/poster.
Metal Replica Bracer Emblem.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this game is. Best rpg I played last year. Definitely recommend this game to anyone. Also Second Chapter is coming over to the US as a digital release.
The story is phenomenal. It is a perfect balance of humor, drama, and mystery. The characters are all likeable and each come with unique personalities.
The gameplay is also addicting, as it is a mix between the traditional RPG and a strategy-RPG. Characters are free to move about on a plane and is not limited by hexagonal spots. You have the option of a normal attack, a magic attack, and a character-based special skill attack, giving the combat much variety.
My only complaint is how much dialogue is in this game. Sometimes while playing, I feel like I'm reading a book. Although the conversations are usually funny and interesting, due to its heavy volume, I end up mostly speed reading while bashing the "O" button. Other than that small blemish, I genuinely feel "Trails in the Sky" is about as perfect as an RPG game gets. Definitely don't miss out on this one.
- Localization is excellent. Really. The characters have charm and many lines are funny. XSEED deserves a LOT of credit because this game has a large amount of text.
- Loading: Maximum 1.5sec transition between zones. Usually shorter. Similarly, the UI is very easy to navigate and there's no noticeable menu lag, which absolutely drives me nuts in some PSP games. It's obvious the developers made sure that loading was kept to a minimum and does not obstruct gameplay. This is all without any sort of memory-stick install, too. No complaints.
- The menu system in this game feels as if a PC RPG was stuffed into a PSP package (in Japan the game was on the PC so this shouldn't be surprising!). This is a good thing, because it works. The menus are quick, incredibly detailed, and useful. Similarly, a vast amount of information and reference is packed into the various logs you acquire. Quest logs, recipe lists, bestiary, and an in-game manual of sorts are all easily accessible. Plus, YOU CAN SAVE ANYWHERE (outside of battle).
- Gameplay is a standard turn-based JRPG affair with a few additions. Your characters move around on a field and have a per-turn move limit, so physical attacks require you to be somewhat near your target. There are also additional systems such as crafting (special moves that consume a resource that builds up as you deal/receive damage) and S-Breaks (very powerful attacks that you can initiate regardless of turn order).
Trails in the Sky is an incredible RPG. The depth and amount of content of this game sets it apart from other RPGs on the system.
