For PSP and PC. Yes, PSP!

XSEED Games has officially announced (again) that they will be localizing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter for English-speaking audiences. A little bit has changed this time around, though - SC is coming to both PC via Steam and PSP as digital releases sometime before the end of 2014. Also worth noting is that the already-released first chapter will see release on Steam this winter.

The localization isn't just done by XSEED's internal team, however, as the folks at Carpe Fulgur, who localized Recettear and Fortune Summoners will be assisting with the translation of the title.

"There's been a constant demand ever since we released the original The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky," said XSEED executive Ken Berry, "and we are extremely grateful for our partnership with the passionate localizers at Carpe Fulgur to finally make it a reality."

Interested in learning a bit more about Trails in the Sky? Be sure to check out our reviews for the first title, as well as our import review of Second Chapter, from when it first launched in Japan.

You can find more information about the process behind this localization on the blog of Andrew Dice of Carpe Fulgur, as well.

Dice had to say, "So, on very nearly the third anniversary of Recettear’s launch, we can at last say that yes, our fourth project is a collaboration with XSEED Games to localize and publish Trails in the Sky SC. This has, on some level, been in the works and worked on since before the first reveal of Fortune Summoners. So very much, from so very many, has gone into making this a reality, and at long, long last we can finally tell everyone everything about the long-discussed "Project Four", which is not just our largest localization to date, but is without hyperbole one of the largest projects in the history of the industry."
