@Fight_Teza_Fight Excellent plan, I think it's the perfect game to play while on a trip. And yeah, these games are truly something special, glad that you decided to play them.

A tip I can give you about the game that I didn't know about when I was playing it for the first time is that if you want to get the highest grade for each chapter, you are going to have to talk to all people (unless you want to use a walkthrough) in order to unlock some side quests because some of them don't show up on your map at all so you have to talk to people in order to find them. If you miss side quests then you'll miss out on points for your overall grade and these points will in general help you get useful items, so make sure to get them whenever you can.

By the way, does anyone else think that the way Falcom structured the games in the trilogy is absolutely brilliant? The first game had Rean learn all about the world, then in the second game he would be the 'impossible' hero that would save the world and then in the third game, he actually grows up and therefore becomes more befitting of his role as a hero. Because as I see it, children/adolescents are never going to be as strong as adults in this universe. Even though you level these people up a ton, the developers don't want them to become even close as strong as, say Sara or the Phantom Thief, just because they're not adults yet. I mean, just look at the part in the epilogue of the second game where you played as Lloyd from Trails of Zero or whatever those games that take place in Crossbell are called, both him and Rixia defeated both Rean AND the Black Rabbit just like that, even after all the experience Rean had gathered throughout these two games. All of that didn't matter because he hadn't become an adult. So what I believe is the developers intentionally made the third game about adult Rean so that he could finally show his true potential and that's an absolutely brilliant way of bringing the trilogy to a close.

@Hego @Reanfan7 CLASS VII IS CONFIRMED TO BE RETURNING IN COLD STEEL III!

The hype level is through the roof for me now! Just look at how everyone's grown! This is going to be the best game ever.

Welcome back Class VII!

@KratosMD I think your comment 2 up is typical in Anime, there's always the super strong antagonist the hero or heroine meets pretty early on but can't get close to.

@themcnoisy Yeah, that's true. But I never thought about the protagonist actually getting closer to that level of power in a later game. I mean, take the Pokémon anime for example. After almost 20 years, Ash still hasn't managed to become the best Pokémon trainer ever and that's probably because he's still young and not an adult. But here in these games, it might actually be possible for the protagonist to become as good as his opponents (for real this time, not in terms of RPG levels), which really excites me.

Yay! Looking forward to seeing the gang again I've been meaning to replay Trails in the Sky SC in the hope they release the 3rd game for that on Vita or PS4, it's out on PC [email protected]

I just changed the thread to a general The Legend of Heroes series discussion! That said I just downloaded The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky FC on PSTV today! Visually it looks like a PSOne title, but as expected the music, story, and gameplay are top-notch! Easily a 9/10 so far in my book. Plus Estelle has such a bubbly personality and is so cute lol! xD

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky FC is interesting in that it feels alot like a PSOne version of the Trails of Cold Steel games. Everything is there, although a few things are a little more simplified. Also @KratosMD @Hego the game is much more open than even Trails of Cold Steel 2. First off you can pretty much travel anywhere in the world after the 15+ hour prologue and the world is absolutely massive. I dare say it feels more open-ended than even ToCS II where missions limited your ability to access areas at many points in the game whereas FC doesn't limit you in most cases.

Edit: Oh dear me, that acronym is absolutely atrocious. @Tasuki do you want me to use the game's full title rather than shortening it?

@Reanfan7 LOL didn't even think about the acronym till you said it 😂 Just say Trails SC (second chapter) and we"lol know what you mean. Ya the game is certainly more "open-worldly" than the Steel games, think I preferred the more linear structure of Steel myself but Trails in Sky is still great, preferred the characters in Sky

Well this might be a bit off topic, but I always shared my love for The Legend of Heroes series in the Youtube community on Miiverse so it's a shame to hear that the Miiverse service will likely be coming to an end soon.

Just reached the arena tournament in Trails in The Sky FC and things have become very linear, albeit very interesting in-terms of the story. I have a feeling I'm nearing the end of the game. Still 68 hours plus whatever is after where I'm at in the game is quite impressive for a PSP game. Olivier a.k.a. prince Olivert is just as cooky as he is in the Cold Steel games lol! xD

@Tasuki @Get2SammyB I really want this moved to the PS4 forum since the next game in the series is PS4 exclusive.

On-Topic: I just reached the point in Trails in The Sky FC where the team is taking back Grancel Castle from the enemy coup. I think I'm very close to the end of the game.

Btw The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky FC is on-sale for under $10 in North America until Monday! ^_^

@Reanfan7 But I thought this thread was for the Las game on PS3 and Vita? When the new one comes out just make a thread for that game in the PS4 section.

This thread is for the franchise not any particular game in the series though.

@Reanfan7 Now I am confused I just read the first two pages of this thread and everyone is discussing on how they are playing this game on Vita. I think I am just going to lock this thread and you can start a fresh one when the game comes out on PS4.
