XSEED has announced it will publish The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter digitally on Steam and the PlayStation Store. The firm has also announced the First Chapter will also be released on PC.

The firm has partnered with Carpe Fulgur to bring the title digitally to PC and PSP system, including compatibility with the PlayStation Vita in 2014.

The first chapter, previously released for PSP system as The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, will also be released for PC this winter, which marks the debut of the English version on PC, as well as the first release of the English version anywhere. The two chapters will release as two separate, back-to-back installments.

“We are pleased to finally give the fans what they have been requesting so fervently for over two years,” said Ken Berry, EVP of XSEED Games. “There’s been a constant demand ever since we released the original The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and we are extremely grateful for our partnership with the passionate localizers at Carpe Fulgur to finally make it a reality.”

“This is something we’ve had an interest in doing since practically the formation of the company,” added Andrew Dice, project director for Carpe Fulgur. “If you talk about or work with ‘PC gaming from Japan’, as we do, you can’t really ignore Falcom’s huge presence over the past three decades. Trails in the Sky is particularly special, and I’d wanted to work on it ever since the day we started business. I’m thrilled that we will finally be able to bring the game to English-speaking audiences, in partnership with XSEED.”

Developed by Nihon Falcom, the multi-part story told in The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is a new stand-alone entry in the series.

A teaser trailer is posted below.
