Trails in the Sky is Headed to Smartphones

edited June 2012 in Latest Updates
The Trails in the Sky will soon not only lead to the PSP, but to smartphones as well. Since Aeria Games will not be helped by XSEED, only time will tell what sort of changes to expect.

    ...... An epic text heavy game like this on cell phones? For those REALLY long train rides?

    Not seeing it, but any chance to get this to gamers is good I suppose.

    Well I guess that's a nice contingency plan for seeing the rest of the series get a US release.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    But what's wrong with touching TiTS?

    They need to start over with the localizations which is why it will never complete and it will never happen.


    Xseed's version of 2nd chapter will come out this year.


    This mobile thing will never happen

    I'm surprised it hasn't been done sooner. I mean the joking, not the smartphone thing.

    The mobile thing, if it happens, will likely break the game up into chapters even smaller than the game itself does.

    XSEED's SC ain't likely for 2012.

    What makes you say that? I don't think they've confirmed platforms yet, but there's a handful of iOS apps that are at least 1 GB in size. UMD is 1.8 GB so with a little bit of compression and resolution magic I'm sure they can cram things in.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Not a tech limitation as much as a business decision. I think they could easily release the game in chunks and make it easier to translate.

    In other words: "episodic" delivery?

    As someone who completed the First Chapter on PSP, it's really hard for me to get excited about the idea of the second chapter on iOS or Android, also, I'd really like to have the translation from XSEED, as I really felt what they did with the first game was amazing. If I knew for sure it was going to be released on PSP or Vita I'd pass on the Smartphone adaptions entirely.
