posted on by Egan Loo
Nihon Falcom announced on Friday that it will release Eiyū Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki (The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Flash), the latest role-playing game in its Trails series, on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita next year.
The new game is set in the same timeframe and empire as The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which was released in 2004. This will be the first game in the franchise to originate on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita platforms.
The new features include the "Tactical Link System," which will speed up combat by offering a more intuitive, command-based battle system. The game will offer "Active Voice," in which the cast will voice dialogue in more scenes including movement, in-town scenes, and conversations. With the "360-Degree Free Camera," players can freely control the camera across the map in 360 degrees.
