Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky sequel finally coming stateside via XSeed


After a few Twitter-based teases, XSeed games has announced that Nihon Falcom’s RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter is on its way to North America as a PSN download for PSP (Vita compatible). The new game, as well as its predecessor, will also become available on PC via Steam. This makes sense, as they were both PC games originally.

No specific release dates have been set for these projects. The Steam version of the original Trails in the Sky is expected this winter, while the sequel is set to come at an unspecified time in 2014.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky was met with love when it arrived on North American PSPs two years ago. Unfortunately, the games in this series have quite a bit of text, and translating it is notoriously hard; this severely limited the progress that a small company like XSeed could realistically make on such a project. To the stated delight of the loyal fans and XSeed staff members alike, the long wait is finally coming to an end.

Resident Evil: Revelations Could be Coming To PS3

Here’s your interesting rumor for the day: The Korean Game Rating Board has rated the currently 3DS-only Resident Evil: Revelations for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The rating doesn’t allude to whether or not this will be a retail or downloadable release, but it does come with some very funny pictures that try to explain what’s in the game (Korean versiontranslated version).

As I’m sure most of you know, this doesn’t mark the first time a handheld game would be making its way to consolesPSP titles Secret Agent Clank,Ratchet & Clank: Size MattersSyphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow, andSyphon Filter: Dark Mirror all made their way to the PS2 after a short period of time, with the God of War PSP games hitting the PS3 in the God of War OriginCollection.

If this news does turn out to be true, will you be spending more money on aResident Evil title on your PS3? Or did Operation Raccoon City and RE6turn you off the series for good? Let us know in the comments below.


Final Fantasy Director Interested in Developing Vita Game.


I love RPG’s and I love Square Enix. The Final Fantasy series is many things to many people but if there is one thing I believe we can all agree on is that they are makers of incredibly beautiful worlds and unique characters. Owners of Sony’s PSP had some high quality games like FF7: Crisis Core, Dissidia, FF: Type Zeroand KH: Birth By Sleep.

But what about that shiny new PS Vita? Where’s the love? Well fear not faithful ones..or just frustrated ones. Hajime Tabata, the director behind two of those big budget blockbusters, (Crisis Core, and Type Zero) has expressed interest in developing for the PlayStation Vita:

I had an impression [that] it was an exceedingly good piece of hardware. Since I [had been] making Final Fantasy titles on the PSP, I have an interest in [developing] for a larger device. As someone concerned with game production, there is nothing other than the Vita that offers that largeness, high density and luminescence, and ability to [render] high-quality images.

Let’s hope this becomes a reality. The PS Vita sorely needs more games to add to its lackluster library line up. This is a time where I agree with Nintendo’s approach. Make and publish everything you can to everyone you can. Yes it means alot of shovelware, but beggars cannot be choosers and I am sure a bigger library will appeal to many undecided buyers and parents and alot of those games will sell.

What do you think? Is the PS Vita dead already? Share your opinion with us.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified To Include Call of Duty: Roads To Victory Free

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified will be released for the PlayStation Vita on November 13th—the same day as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2—and it looks like Call of Duty: Roads To Victory will be given free to anyone who buys the game.

Robert Huebner, CEO of Nihilistic, revealed that all North American copies of Black Ops Declassified will include the 2007 PSP game Roads To Victory as a free download. Since the PSP title isn’t yet available within the PlayStation Store, this news likely confirms that it will be released sometime before November 13th, most likely at $19.99 or $29.99.
