About the Story
The story of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky opens in the quaint and serene town of Rolent in the Liberl Kingdom, a land that, while outmatched by surrounding countries in terms of size and military might, manages to maintain its global presence through world-class engineering, ample septium resources and able diplomacy. Still recovering from a fierce war with the powerful Erebonian Empire just ten years prior, players take the reins as Estelle Bright, a young martial arts expert with an effervescent personality and tenacious spirit, as well as her close friend Joshua, as they take their first steps in joining the legendary Bracer’s Guild. Charged with upholding the peace and safety of the citizens, Bracers must first seek qualification in all the regions of the kingdom, and to that end Estelle and Joshua begin their journey.
As players delve further into the story of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, they will traverse an entire kingdom steeped in detail, navigating everything from ancient towers and deep mines to quaint villages and seaside resorts, and become entangled in the geopolitical landscape as they meet new characters along the way. Sprawling landscapes, perilous encounters and mysterious happenings punctuate every moment of the game’s 50-plus hours of gameplay. Through the course of their journey, Estelle and Joshua will begin to uncover a mutinous conspiracy that threatens to overthrow the Liberlian queen and compromise the kingdom’s peaceful landscape: a sinister plot that they must unravel on their quest to become fully-fledged Bracers.
Along the way, players will enjoy an epic all-original soundtrack comprised of 57 tracks from Falcom’s famed music department.
