The Legend of the Heroes series lives!

The excellent Trails in the Sky made it’s way to North America by way of publisher XSEED. It was beginning to look like we’d never see the multiple titles that followed, but fortune has smiled on gamers once more. Aeria Games is not only porting the first entry to smartphone platforms, but it’s porting the entire series (which is the third “act” in a massive collection of games.)

Trails in the Sky joined titles like Radiant Historia and Crimson Gem Saga in marking the triumphant return of the old-school RPG, so it does my heart good to see that the rest of the series will make an appearance here at some point.

I’ve taken gobs of screenshots in Skyrim, but so far I think this one might be my favorite: my character Zalen looking like a total badass, with an uneasy merchant looking on. Click the picture to see the full-size version.
