The trails of your feelings will start the generation
—Title Catchphrase

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is the sixth game in the Legend of Heroes meta-series, and the first of the Trails franchise.

Originally released in Japan as Eiyuu Densetsu Shikusu, Sora no Kiseki FC for PC, the game's story follows Estelle and Joshua Bright ten years after the Hundred Days War on their journey to become Bracers.

It is the first installment of a game trilogy, where it would spawn immediate sequels in Trails in the Sky SC and Trails in the Sky the 3rd, along with numerous supplementary media and a remake.


Upon the Orbal Revolution, people's lives have become significantly more productive from the mechanical gadget unit called the Orbment, and the mysterious energy it generates. From onward, the everyday lives of people have transcended beyond normal progress from the construction of Orbalships and other innovations that follow. But great prosperity can lead to new conflicts, whereas many nations have other uses for the Orbment by engineering them for weapons development.

In the proud and independent Liberl Kingdom, the cheerful siblings Estelle Bright and Joshua Bright left their hometown to become official Bracers, individual combat specialists of investigation skills who help those around with various problems. What challenges awaits the two upon their adventures, as the feelings of those around unfold a new generation.

PSP Development

Originally developed for the PC and utilizing a similar graphics engine to another Falcom game, Ys: Ark of Napishtim, the game would be ported to the PSP in 2006 with some alterations, including:

  1. A monster collector's book, which acts as a bestiary for all defeated enemies
  2. Added voice acting during battles
  3. Estelle wears an apron during the cooking sequences.
  4. Faces in the character sprites animate.
  5. Lowered resolution and frame rate to accommodate the PSP's hardware.
  6. The name is slightly changed from "The Legend of Heroes VI: Sora no Kiseki" to "The Legend of Heroes: Sora no Kiseki FC"

Otherwise, the 2 versions are identical in nearly every way. Later, the PSP version was localized and published by XSEED Games for North America in March 2011 as "The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky". One extra was added to the game by the localization team was that if the players try talking to a chest after opening it for its treasure, the chest will respond with quirky and humorous dialogue as a bonus. In Europe, Ghostlight Games published the game in which it was exactly like XSEED's translation.
