It appears that XSEED Games is following in the footsteps of their recent Ys games by offering up a beaucoup amount of content for fans in their upcoming Limited Edition version of their title, Legend of Heroes: Trails In The Sky, which is in fact the first game in the Sora no Kiseki trilogy -- we will be getting the second and third chapters of this game at a later date, thanks to XSEED's continuing partnership with Falcom. Back when it was first released in 2006, it was also the first game to utilize two UMDs, which goes to show just how huge this game really is.
Not only does the game itself pack in over 50 hours of gameplay to keep you gamers who have to walk miles in the snowpocalypse going on right now, but it will also contain a soundtrack CD with over 20 songs so you can rock out to the tunes that make this series great, a 13 x 9.5 inch poster, and a Bracer Guild badge that replicates the item in the game for the low price of $39.99. For those of you who do not care for this type of merchandise, you can also pick up the game all by its lonesome for $29.99 at your favorite video game retailer. A digital version will also be released for the PSN.
The game takes place in the city of Rolent which is home to the independent Bracer Guild, a legendary organization that brought an armistice to the world over a decade ago. Friends Estelle and Joshua are rookies who aspire to be Bracers themselves, and take up different peacekeeping missions that lead them to the different corners of the world, with a priority of keeping the lands and its people safe from danger. During their travels, they discover a dark organization with the intent of destroying the very fabric of society that the Bracers have spent their entire existence preserving.
Both versions of the game are slated to be released on March 29th in America. There is currently no announcements about a European release, but we will certainly let you readers know if one is announced. In the meantime, please enjoy the screenshots below.
