The Legend of Heroes is an very long running series of Japanese Role-Playing Games (JRPGs) that has had limited exposure in the West, because most of their games have been on the PC. This changed when Bandai ported over Legend of Heroes 3,4, and 5 to the PSP in 2005-2007 as Legend of Heroes 1,2,3.

While these games were never popular in the West, apparently they did well enough in Japan so that original creator of the games, Falcom, decided to start porting their games to the PSP themselves. One of these actually made it to the West (Gurumin), but most have languished over in Japan, until Xseed signed a deal with them. And this is the first game from the deal, The Legend of Heroes 6: Sora No Kiseki First Chapter, or Trails in the Sky.

Like the previous LoH trio of games, Trails in the Sky is very much character and story driven. If you don't like reading text, this game is not for you. But not only has the translation been dramatically improved this time, so has the scope of the game. While the previous ones were somewhat linear, this has massive amounts of side quests, characters, and little extras. And I mean massive (it's a shame there is no strategy guide).

Beyond that, the combat has been overhauled. The previous trio used a simple system of picking commands from a menu, which most JRPGs from the early 90s used. This still basically uses that, but gives you a lot more options, and can now move your guys around the combat map. This adds some depth, but also drags combat out a bit longer. So it's something of a wash, as far as I am concerned.

Falcom games always have great music, this is no exception. There's really no speech in the game though, just battle voices.

Let me start by saying that I am an avid RPG player, in fact it is nearly the only genre of games that I play. By far my favorite sub-genre for RPGs are turn-based ones. Since these are dead on the home consoles, I jump at the ones that still make their way onto the handheld systems.

Enter Xseed's localization of Trails in the Sky, a JRPG developed by Falcom originally for the PC.

The first thing many PSP RPG gamers will ask is: Why would I buy another Legend of Heroes game when the first three sucked so bad?

Well here are three reasons:

1) The game is localized by Xseed, not Namco Bandai. Xseed has done a truly fantastic job of translating this game, something Namco failed miserably at.
2) Xseed did not fool around with the game play, something Namco also did with the original trilogy.
3) This is the first game of a trilogy, and the story contained in this game have absolutely nothing to do with the other three localized by Namco. Namco also released the last trilogy out of order (they obviously didn't care about the games at all...) and Xseed is releasing this trilogy in the proper order ;)

Story (spoiler free):

So lets talk about the game. First and foremost this game is heavily story based, and is not voice acted. If you do not like to read a lot of text for story advancement turn away now. The main purpose that I play RPGs is for their story, and Trails in the Sky delivers. It has been a long time since I have been this hooked on an RPGs story that once I pick the game up I don't put it down until I have too (food or sleep). So far I am a little over 20 hours into the game and just started Chapter 2 (there are 4 chapters plus the prologue). Gameplay is estimated at 50 hours so you'll certainly get your monies worth.

"Trails in the Sky" is an RPG game that does everything right. It is a game that after playing, it makes you wonder why all RPGs aren't set up the same way. Weapon stores, item shops, hotels, guilds, etc. are all color coded on your mini map, making them easy to spot in new cities. If your party is wiped out in a battle, it gives you the option of another try, instead of making you start from your previous save spot. The game also allows you to save at any point and your characters automatically run, without the need to hold down a button. The encounter system is also wonderful. Instead of the constant enemy encounter triggers, battle is initiated when you make contact with a physical monster (think Earthbound). The monsters are rather easy to avoid so you don't have to constantly battle if you don't want to. However, if you choose to battle and you engage your enemy from behind, you will get a preemptive strike. This makes it attractive for players to engage in battle, yet never really forcing you to (and later, you even get Quartz/passive items that will let you spot enemies from a distance and make you invisible to them!). Lastly, all enemy stats, including what their elemental weaknesses are can be viewed at any time by pressing the square button during combat. These are just some of the many player-friendly features about this game.

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.
