Developed by legendary RPG specialists Nihon Falcom, the multi-part story told in The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky represents an entirely new stand-alone entry in the timeless The Legend of Heroes series.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky is the first chapter in the series and opens in the quaint and peaceful town of Rolent in the Liberl Kingdom. Home to a peacekeeping coalition free of government ties known as the Bracer Guild, the adventure follows two young aspiring bracers known as Estelle and Joshua on their trials to become full-fledged members of this elite organization. As they embark on their quest, their journey will take them across an entire country, unraveling a sinister government conspiracy along the way that’s poised to overtake the throne, threatening the very peace the bracers seek to uphold. Throughout their adventure, players can expect to learn the full depth of these characters’ origins and motivations through dialogue-driven cut-scenes and lengthy side-quests.
Combined with The Legend of Heroes: Trails in The Sky Second Chapter, which is currently slated for release this winter, this legendary fantasy epic boasts over a hundred hours of gameplay featuring an engaging narrative that encompasses everything from politics, economics and conspiracies to tourism, traditions and even a cat-speech dictionary. The series also features a meticulously customizable combat system, a massive cast of characters from all walks of life, a variety of landscapes, an in-game newspaper that publishes new issues as the story progresses, and much more.
