Item Description

Legend of the Heroes: Sen no Kiseki (Eiyuu densetsu: Sen no Kiseki) is another anticipated chapter in one of the most celebrated and well-established RPG series in the history of video gaming. Connected to the previous “Trails in the Sky trilogy”, Sen No Kiseki features a unique strategic battle system known as the "Tactic Link System." Combat will speed up through an intuitive, command-based battle system with an emphasis on character bonds; the stronger the bond, the higher the chance for a critical destruction. The game also boasts the "Active Voice," in which the cast will voice dialogue in more scenes including movement, in-town scenes, and conversations and the "360-Degree Free Camera," in which players can freely control the camera across the map in 360 degrees. A highly acclaimed soundtrack from the renowned Falcom Sound Team JDK will definitely set the mood for this moving tale that spans over 50 hours of thrilling gameplay.

Excellent RPG
First off, it's clear that the creators of this game are heavily influenced by a number of other classics. The influence of the Persona series is especially noticeable, but in general it's a mashup of some of the best parts of a variety of great games. As ambitious as that sounds, they execute on it *really* well and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

The individual characters (esp. Class 7 members) are interesting and the world building is very strong. Story pace is a bit slow, but this is largely because they're setting up everything for the sequel, and let me be clear that there's never a dull moment.

Combat is my favorite of any JRPG. Lots of tactical depth and interesting choices. Boss fights especially are a blast. I really like the improvements they made to the system over previous titles, such as streamlining the extra math out of Quartz and adding Tactical Link (or whatever they end up calling it in the English version).

Anyway, if you've ever enjoyed any kind of JRPG, you'll find a lot to like in this one.

Excellent as always
I've never played an Eiyuu Densetsu title that didn't amaze me, and this one is no exception.

Top notch combat as always. Other RPGs could stand to learn a thing or two here. Elegant design (especially favoring player choice over RNG) make combat easy to understand, but at the same time deep enough that you'll still be refining your approach thousands of battles in.

The "military academy" setting between missions is reminiscent of Persona 4, and has many elements in common (such as choosing which of your teammates to spend time with, so as to build "links" that benefit you in battle). The whole cast is likeable, and it's fun getting to know more about your team as you advance.

If you're proficient in Japanese and enjoy RPGs, I can't recommend this one enough. It's easily a top favorite for me. If your Japanese isn't so great, then keep an eye out for the English version coming later this year (as "Trails of Cold Steel"). XSEED did a phenomenal job with Sora No Kiseki, so I'm sure the Sen No Kiseki loc will be excellent as well.

Whichever version you choose, just make sure you don't miss out! =)
