    Nothing new in this trailer, not a bad thing since they already spoiled a lots of thing in previous trailer.
    Can’t wait to play this!

  • PrinceHeir

    i noticed Falcolm only does two games per arc(Crossbell Arc)

    So i guess this is the last Erebonia Arc meaning new arc for the next game?

    Man love the mech design!!!

    • MrTyrant

      Probably Calvar arc if not then the Church one? forgot the name of the other countries.

    • kurosan9712

      Liberl had 3 games, though.

      • Articuno76

        TBH the third game plays more like a DLC compendium than anything else. For all intents and purposes the Liberl arc is a duology.

        • kurosan9712

          Oh yeah? Even though characters from the 3rd play important roles in Ao? YEAH, really DLC.
          It was yeah, like 20-30 hours shorter(not 100 hours, right), but it was still a splendid part of Sora no Kiseki series.

          • Articuno76

            The characters from The 3rd are around for important events in the Crossbell Duology, but they aren’t really critical to the construction of the story. You could have replaced all the The 3rd characters with nobodies of the same position as their positions (which is explained anyway) matter more than who they are.

            But more to the point, almost every character in The 3rd that matters in Ao is introduced in either FC/SC. The only exception I can think of is Reese whose affiliation with Kevin is touched upon in a short skit between them only hours into Ao anyway.

            I’ve not finished The 3rd and I don’t recall being even the slightest bit lost during Ao. What I do remember of The 3rd was that a lot of it was character backstories that jumped around the timeline/across characters with no core thread running between them – a host of stand-alone episodes which many other games would simply package as DLC.

            There’s, at best, only one story in The 3rd that is useful to know going into Zero from SC, and that’s the one that explains the change in Kilika’s occupation. Something that can easily be looked up in a few seconds.

            • kurosan9712

              Looked up isn’t the way I enjoy games.
              I can look up the whole plot, like I do with certain series I have no intention of playing.

              Oh, and actually, I didn’t feel lost even a bit playing FC then Zero. Yeah, I skipped SC and the 3rd at first, then returned(after Zero).
              Considering how the series works, it’s possible to skip whole big parts, don’t feel lost any, then just return to what you skipped. Not recommended, but it’s possible.

              • Articuno76

                You could look it up. And you’d only be looking up one tiny factoid. And even then, you don’t need to because for the most part everything is explained in context anyway.

                Now what takes longer? Looking up one little thing? Or playing through and entire game to understand something happening on screen for about 1 minute in another game?

                Heck, the best solution would be to translate the Kilika flashback from The 3rd and transpose it as a Extra feature in Zero.

                And TBH, if you’ve never played the Liberl arc and jumped in at the Crossbell Duology there’s nothing to look up anyway as you wouldn’t know who Kilika is.

  • Pyrofrost

    Woooooo! This Falcom groupie already has it preordered <3

    • Sav

      we hope u know japanese.

  • Stryker_X20

    Hope the first one gets localized.

    • MitsukiIX

      Once again you cannot play sen 1 without sora trilogy or zero-ao.

      • Budgiecat

        lol whatever yo

      • TwinBuns

        But some people already established above the story arcs come in pairs. I don’t care what order they come out in, I just want to play.

      • Stryker_X20

        Well, like Tales and Final Fantasy… These games don’t follow a fixed sequel. So that’s fine if u disagree with me. This’ just my opinion.

        • MitsukiIX

          you clearly have not played sora 1,2,3, zero and ao and sen 1 They clearly follow close upon each other, try again.

  • Sav

    now this is the type of stuff that should be localized.

    not that loli shovelware neptunia and atelier, i swear theres like 6 of those games for ps3 alone.


    • MitsukiIX

      yep but you cannot understand the whole story if you start with sen, I made that mistake when I played zero for the first time. had to stop cuz I did not get it and got sora trilogy on ps3 before finishing them.

      • Budgiecat

        I’ll embrace the suffering

    • novurdim

      atelier is awesome though

  • talesoffan

    Looks like one of the best jrpgs on PS3.

    • Kyosuke Yoshino

      It IS!

  • Wolfe

    Makes me sad I’ll probably never get to experience this series.

    • Godmars

      Pretty sure this is going to be localized for the PS3.

      • Sinon

        u wot

      • Wolfe

        I’d really love to see that. Have you heard anything supporting that? If so, please, link me asap!

        • MrTyrant

          So far Falcom is happy that Trails in the sky sold so well in steam.

      • Greek-God88

        how so sure? care to elaborate?

      • Budgiecat

        or a localized PS4 port 9 years from now :P

  • Bart Fatima

    JRPG that I really need in my life, highly doubt I will ever play such a game.

  • Articuno76

    Replaying Sen I ATM on the PS3 so I’m looking forward to this. But after they put out Sen I in an unfinished state I’m not too hot on the idea of getting this at launch.

    No doubt Sen II will be in better condition and feel more complete than Sen I, but Nihon Falcom still hasn’t recognised that the way they pushed Sen I out of the door was in fact a problem in and of itself, even if they did patch it up quite a bit.

    Since Nihon Falcom haven’t explained why the game was put out in such a poor state (and steps they are taking to make sure it won’t happen again), apologised sincerely or addressed the issue of putting out Sen I as was in the first place I won’t be supporting this game on launch.

    I’ll be picking up Sen II a month or two after release, just a I did for Ao no Kiseki: Evolution. And just like Ao Evo I imagine they’ll be no shortage of CE’s floating around unsold on Amazon Japan weeks after release.

    I can’t really force anyone else to do the same, especially as the game looks to be shaping up pretty well, but it’s worth considering on holding off on Sen II for a few weeks.

    • Articuno76

      For those interested the DL version of Sen no Kiseki I is going to be dropping from 4,200 yen > 2,800 yen (or 1,960 yen for PS+ subscribers). At least according to Falcom’s e-letter.

  • sakanaとkoeda

    Wow that was corny. I would still like to play it nonetheless (in English).

  • Blue Gum

    Eww gundam/mechs.
