There’s a new PSP game out today. To some people that might come as strange news, but to a certain circle, today has been eagerly anticipated for over four years: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter (SC) is finally out.

Of course, we don’t know if it’s good. We don’t know if the translation is all screwy, or if the game is full of glitches and save-erasing bugs. All we know is that the second chapter of one of the best RPGs in modern history is finally here, on Steam right now and on the PlayStation Network (for PSP/Vita) whenever the damn store gets updated.

If you’ve never played or even heard of Trails in the Sky, you should know this: It’s a turn-based role-playing game, reminiscent of classics like Suikoden and Grandia, full of charm and personality. It’s very, very good.

You should also know that the first game is on sale for $10 on both Steam and the PlayStation Store. Go play it!

I really wanted to love the first one. I played over 20 hours, but it just felt sooo slow, which is a bummer because I still had fun playing it. I heard the story picks up eventually. Does anybody know if the 2nd game is faster paced? I just don’t have that much time to play games anymore, so I really just buy those that feel worth my time.
