    wow, they’re going all out on the upgrade. wish they’d port this northside asap.

      @whiteferrero: Wish they port TitS: SC first though. Is the story of Trails of Zero largely interconnected with Trails in the Sky?

      • whiteferrero

        @L_kira: hey i’m sure xseed’s working on it. It’s a must buy for me. :D err… regarding the story, I’m sure they’re independent from each other. Though from what I’ve seen, there are some cameos…

        • L_kira

          @whiteferrero: I’m kinda stalking XSEED previously and they are actually doing the translation for SC. The problem that they have is the dead reception of PSP and also how they will compress two UMDs in a single media if they want to transfer it on PSN, as an option for those who will play SC on PSP AND Vita.

            @L_kira: i’m sure they’ll find a way. hey! have you seen the OVA? i was gonna watch it thinking it would start from FC but then it began at the end of FC so I didn’t. >.< I wanted to play the game first.

            • L_kira

              @whiteferrero: Almost. Same reason as you. And yes. I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed since last year that they’ll be able to bring it here. I’m waiting eagerly for the closure of Estelle’s story.
