Don't forget to support the games (or not if it's a NISA release) and spoiler the spoilers!

Specially Xanadu Next. That masterpiece deserves bigger sales.

Cold Steel Undub Patch Here For Those So Inclined:

Jap voices for CS:


Dummy files:


Just dump it in the voice folder. Easy as pie.

You need the dummy files or the new Audio XSeed added will be in English because the nips never recorded that much.

>Latest news

- Trails of Cold Steel I is out on PC on both Steam and GoG; ToCS II is also confirmed for PC with no release date available

- Tom on ToCS for PC: has its own separate launcher, "far more feature-rich than any other launcher we've ever had in any of our PC games to date" " There's not much you CAN'T do in that launcher." "You can tweak bloody EVERYTHING." It's also got a turbo mode that lets you speed up the game 4x, which is pretty sweet. It also runs butter smooth. Seriously, this port is great.

- Trails of Cold Steel III is on track for a Japanese release on September 28th of this year, confirmed PS4 exclusive. Check gematsu.com and esterior.net for further details

- Tons of Falcom/Kondo interviews with some interesting details, will eventually make a list and a tl;dr

>Other not-so-new news

- Zwei II coming this Summer. Check this blog post to discover the game ( xseedgames.tumblr.com/post/162167486725/zwei-the-ilvard-insurrection-localization-blog )

- The full Trails in the Sky trilogy is finally on English, available on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store

- Tokyo Xanadu brought by Askys, Vita version has already been released, and the improved Ex+ version for PS4 and PC on late 2017, although Amazon has November 24th, 2017 listed

- Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana brought by NISA, If you wish to complain, do so to Falcom, not XSeed (they're upset about it too). Good Japanese grammar is extremely recommended


- Trails to Zero fan tl at 25%. Ao is 46% translated, but not edited at all yet. A beta of the Zero TL from 2015 was leaked. It is full of typos and sounds like robots are talking, but it is at least coherent from start to finish. Play only if you are desperate. Machine TL of Azure has also been released, and it is as terrible as you would expect. It is completely unintelligible.

- The Legend of Xanadu I & II Dub Project announced, English tl patches coming in the next months ( http://tg-16.com/The_Legend_of_Xanadu_Dub_Project.htm )

- Also in the works: Zwei!!, Dinosaur Resurrection, Vantage Master Japan, Dinosaur Resurrection and Brandish 2 Renewal (PC-98)

After the VA strike? I don't see it happening. Even so, don't even joke about that.

I'm going to make a call based on what we saw in recent pics however. Unless she becomes another member of the Reanbowl, Claire's going to end up being with/marrying Michael, given that they both work at the Railway Military Police and they have a rivalry and he worries about her. It would be a good way of honoring Miyu Matsuki's (Claire's VA) memory, given that she wasn't able to achieve her wish of getting married if she were to recover before her passing if Falcom decided to go that route.

That's some shit luck with keys. Get the Bone Carver from Agnes (the robed adventurer you find starting in Clover Ruins) and make sure to get its upgrade later on at Trechier Woods. This will minimize having to backtrack for buying keys.

Flat? The Gagharv designs themselves are both trope-y and unique, just tailored for a more traditional low-to-high-fantasy setting than what we've got with Trails. Iwasaki's character art in the Win9x and PSP remakes does a massive favor to those designs…she'd be a much better promo artist for Trails if you ask me.

Xseed is not know for their business brilliance anon, they don't know how to hype a game and market a product but this is actually not a bad move, more people may buy 7 because of 8 close release. anyway at least they still good at the most important part of their job which is translating/localizing, Falcom giving any importance to that instead of quick bucks is what worry me the most now.

6f2cc4 No.13194243


I don't see much overlap between Cold Steel and Ys Seven buyers. Most PSP buyers of Trails either didn't know or care about Ys at that point or were more into the fan-translated PC games. As for VIII coming soon, Seven would sell worse after the much-improved sequel's on Steam. Tom @ XSEED said the reason they've been able to port Seven this year is because their recent new projects won't be ready until 2018, which means it's time to pad and get something like Seven PC out before people lose interest.

Also, this announcement being 3 weeks out is much better than usual for them. Let's see if they bother to market it now, which they should given their competition.

b807ef No.13194439

Man, while I definitely prefer the extravagant opera dress, I could definitely get used to this new Vita. Maybe it's the gloves & fan.

4ee9f2 No.13194500



All I know is no companies really release the titles of the same series in such a short timespan, probably to avoid the older one not selling at all as people hold off. Sure, sales would probably not be impressive after Ys 8 came out, but now they might be even worse. Anyone who researches enough will know which one is better, and those who don't bother researching probably are typical normalfags and they'll be put off by the graphics as it honestly is the worst looking Ys title on Steam. If other Ys made a good impression on them, they'll give the old one a try to check if the older/newer game was as good, but because Ys 8 is soon after and it doesn't look awful, I think Sven's sales performance will be very bad.

It's not even likely people will confuse them and buy 7 thinking it was 8 because one uses Roman numbers, the other writes Seven.

6f2cc4 No.13194627


Anyone interested in Ys will research and realize Seven is more than worth a play, especially knowing it's the precursor to the newest entry, and two weeks before VIII makes it look like a good appetizer. Speaking of visuals, enough players already skip Chronicles solely because it's old and 2D; XSEED's market here is mostly tolerant of older-looking games so long as they have a neat art-style (one reason I think Xanadu Next didn't do well). And there's a captive Ys audience on Steam/GOG which almost guarantees XSEED will make their money back and be able to offer deeper, more psychologically attractive discounts later.

Besides, releasing around the holidays instead would really screw over this release, and XSEED doesn't want to have a reputation for delayed launches anymore. I'm not expecting Seven to sell super-well purely because of its age and the lack of means to update it for 2017, but it can still be a profitable port with legs. They should build up hype over these weeks, though, by showing off footage and non-spoiler content for once. No doubt it would help to have actual marketing.

Why is there such a small amount of Ys doujins? They're either 80 gazillions year old or don't exist, Trails have incomparably more.


Yeah, it's very much worth a play, but what will they choose if they only have money for one? I can and will buy both unless fuckery happens, but that won't be the case for everyone. It'd be better as an "Appetizer" if it wasn't 25$ but at most 20, I think.

I don't think spoilers matter for Ys, the stories are… Well, they care so much about the story, I remember Celceta's trailers outright showing Gruda smiling as something's burning in the background. It made it too obvious that he is gay for Adol. Red flames clearly represent Adol as they share his hair colour and don't combine with water too well, the city ravaged by fire represents Gruda's body, smiling Gruda actually represents his own, true self's thoughts and his wild enjoyment at being claimed by Adol. Don't take Ys games literally, they're too complicated and deep, everything you see needs interpretation

Now that is some of bullshit and a big one of that, it's entirely Falcom fault period, FALCOM choose to cut a vital part of Rean character development, if "room" was the main issue they could cut some other crap instead of something so important. I really don't get it, how could they not only cut something like this and have the guts to sell it as a Drama-CD for some special edition, what a fucking farce.

Actually yes, it is the Vita's fault. Because Ymir was an entirely new area. That's what wouldn't fit. You would have had to have cut an entire field study, and while I wouldn't have been opposed to cutting, say Roer, because I hate Alisa, I can't deny the plot stuff than happened there was more essential than what is essentially a hotsprings breaks with a little bit of development for Rean. So yes, I blame the Vita. It also cost us some things in CS2 as well. That's why CS3 is going to be better. They don't have to cater to outdated hardware anymore.

I'll give you a better reason, Roer didn't need to be there because it didn't introduce anything new to the table, and was Alisa focused. Considering she stole Gaius' chapter she didn't need her own. It would've been fine if left to description. Ymir gives development to Rean and introduce Ouroboros, which is pretty fucking relevant considering the end is coming up. Plus it establishes Rean's new scroll and abilities, and rise to Intermediate level.

It did actually. In spite of Alisa, the (absolutely) dividing of the Reinford Company is important to the plot. It also shows just how bad tensions between Imperial and Provencal forces are, as well as setting up Crow's (admittedly) failed gambit. Plus, hinted at Claire's feelings for Rean. Just a bit.

a33f4f No.13214843


Nord is, sadly, important. It's very likely one of the resting places of one of the two parts of the great power. Celdic is less vital, but Ymir for Field Study 1 wouldn't work. The problem with Ymir is that there's nothing near there that could serve as drama.

But yeah, if there had been no Vita version Ymir would have been in there.

Downsizing Nord and a little bit of Celdic was all you said.

They wouldn't have to make that choice to begin with if it weren't for console limitations. You can argue Falcom made a poor decision on what to cut but ultimately it was the vita's fault anything had to be cut to begin with.

He'll probably shine in CS3. I'm expecting him to, really, given that he's part of the church now.

I think he didn't get as much spotlight because he's probably the most mature character out of Class 7. He's already developed, and the only things that need filling in were his reasons for joining Thors, and him trying to fit in to Imperial traditions and whatnot. He doesn't have any hangups like the other characters do; he feels at home with his family, unlike Rean and Alisa. He's not a part of the noble/commoner dispute like Machias and Jusis. He's sure of his goal and position in life, unlike Emma and Elliot. He doesn't have a big secret and a past like Fie does.

Laura is the only one that's equivalent to him, but she still got hung up on Fie's dishonesty and holding back for a while. And she's still a noble, despite Legram and her father trying to stay out of it, at least in the first game.

The 3rd takes place before Zero. They were heading to Crossbell when they got picked up.

Basically, what Joshua says there doesn't match up with the timeline of Ring of Judgement or Zero. The "trusted source" they learned bout Renne from was Ein, who they met after working with Toval for a while. Then they went to Crossbell in Chapter 1 of Zero. In Chapter 1 they also reference the events of 3rd happening months before. So basically, because Ring of Judgement and Zero were written after 3rd, you have to take Joshua saying they're already in Crossbell as non-canon and that, despite RoJ making it look like they get to Crossbell instantly after hearing about Renne, it must have taken them a few months. It seems 3rd happens some time between Ring of Judgement and Zero. It's one of the few times they fuck up continuity.

It's a trailer, what do you really expect? Game trailers don't really have any text besides "cool combat 10/10"-type advertshit. It's meant to show gameplay and pretty cinematics/whatever to be hype the viewer, not text to bore normalfags. Watch any trailer, there'll be a similar ratio of action to text, meaning pretty much only action.

NISA's logo is pretty clearly displayed at 30 seconds in, and it's there for 10 seconds so effectively a fourth of the video, same size as all the other logos. It's also a video on their official channel, so how are they hiding anything? If it was displayed any more, it'd be longer there than Falcom's, and that would be a shitty thing to do.

I would call them bad if at least they tried which they don't. Tom claims that they "are happy wit the reception" but they are happy with anything pass 10k even if CS now sits at page 9 of steam best sellers and falling not even 2 weeks in. Besides Tom himself said that they are aware of their poor/non-existent marketing skills BUT they don't think that is a huge problem. Maybe it will take everyone "stealing" their contracts for them to wake up.

I like CS, but it's very "light" when it comes to major plot happenings. Things don't come together until the end, most of the game is just fleshing out characters and fixing their hangups.

CS2 is much better, but there's a dry spell around the middle. The intermission, final stretch and divertissement/epilogue are the highlights of the game for me, though.

i notice that, quite frankly it's badly done I HATE YOU->WE ARE BEST FRIENDS! too fast too shallow.

e069f6 No.13232953


The only hatred between characters are from Machias/Jusis. Everyone else are strangers early on, and Machias and Jusis are vitriolic to each other right up until the end. It's more like they called a truce with each other.

The only reason Machias and Rean make up faster is because Rean doesn't taunt him the same way Jusis does.

If you're talking about Laura/Fie, it's more about Laura having a hangup about Fie's dishonesty and holding back, rather than hatred.

I can't think of any more conflict between two characters. Alisa/Rean? Alisa's been wanting to apologize, and it's weeks ingame before she finally does. The calendar ingame does show how much time passes, and how much weeks of things you missed. Some things can feel very fast because of that.

i didn't meant literal hate, but it would improve the game a lot if it was, i mean the little crisis those high school students have in their fake military academy. Machias and Jusis were the only kinda believable ones the rest was just shallow and pathetic. i don't quite hate CS but when i compare it to FC and specially Zero which got my attention from the start with the political/police/moral corruption, the role of SSS, the whole Crossbell situation been manipulated by the 2 super powers, threaten by WMDs, the mafias sponsored by the super powers, people losing fate, now compare all that to what happens in CS. CS felt to me waaay to pushy and forceful with the whole POWER OF FRIENDSHIP! crap, not a terrible game but really disappointing and the ending didn't help one bit.

That's why I say the NA vs. IA conflict should've split Class VII with CS II being about bringing them together again and trying to stop the War.

Team NA would be Crow, Jusis, and Laura. Team IA would be Machias, Millium, and Elliot. Team Neutral would start with Gaius, Fie, Emma, Alisa, and Rean. Of course, that would mean changing the NA from complete obvious villains and giving them a more justifiable motive for war, but I think it would've been better than having all the NA be jackasses and having Class VII claim neutrality despite totally fighting for and with the IA.

Well, that got a response. But clearly none of you read the whole thing, because I pointed out in order for this split to happen, the NA would need a more justifiable reason to go to war than what they have. I KNOW Laura and Jusis wouldn't stick with them as presented in-game.


This would be during CSII, fool.

e069f6 No.13235876


Easy there. I was just half asleep when I read your post.

Still though. While Crow doesn't join the NA solidly in CS2, he does appear as an ally to them, same way as the rest of Ouroboros, right up until Cayenne attempts to get Vermillion at the end. If you want Crow to actually join the NA without rewriting his backstory/motivations, then you'd probably have to change the ending of CS1 (where he failed in his plans to shoot Osborne) so his goal isn't accomplished and he joins up with them fully to pursue it. But even then you'd have to rewrite his relationship with Vita and the ILF, and maybe a bit of his character too. Crow doesn't care about the noble alliance, they just have similar goals, and in return for her aid is his plans, he's helping Vita.

Secondly, without rewriting Laura, even with a "good" reason for the NA to go to war, Laura would probably still be neutral, like her father will also most likely be. And the NA is instigating it. War is war, whether they had a more justifiable reason or not. Without changing Laura's character, she would still be in the neutral camp.

Jusis will of course be the hardest to convince, since he is the most noble of the classmates, but even then, given his backstory, he would still join Class VII anyway after some convincing in your version of CS2… just like he does in this CS2.

In fact, I think the were already in camps (just with Laura in neutral) in this CS2, but just not as strongly as you want.

I'm not saying CS1 and CS2 are perfect. CS1 focuses on the classmates and bringing them together, while CS2 focuses on the war and the Noble Alliance's goals (CS3 will be focusing on Osbourne's). There should've been more conflict in CS1, and they become friend that are split up at the end. Basically the same idea, but just with more tempers and infighting.

If anything I think the biggest flaw with CS2 is the lack of showing what was going on in Western Erebonia. The fighting was bloodier and there was more destruction, but they only told us through the characters' mouths, we didn't see anything. Maybe we'll see remnants of it in CS3 but there's less impact without actually being there (like seeing how Garellia was before and after it got scooped out with an ice cream scoop). I think the middle of the game should've been more about checking out that while hunting for the Zemurian ore instead of just going from shrine to shrine.

After the intermission it felt like nothing was actually going on. It was suddenly very peaceful, allowing the party to wander around as they like. Sure, you have fights in between, but since it was a predictable repeating process, it didn't feel like much.

5b8d4b No.13235936


No, anon, I read your post. They wouldn't join them even if you rewrite the NA. Laura doesn't give two shits about nobility neither does the Viscount. Jusis is the bastard son of a Duke who doesn't even acknowledge him most of the time. I doubt he'd care to side with the NA. You'd have to rewrite the games and the characters entirely to get over your hangup.

802181 No.13236018


there is no need for a split, but the character had to be more than a archetype "Boy that everyone loves, is kind hearted, hidden power, chosen one, tragic past", "Kind hearted girl that is easily flustered, family issues, has difficult with showing her feelings and is prone to cause misunderstandings", "Stoic girl, who doesn't know how to act feminine", The game tries so hard to make me like them but they all end up feeling shallow and "i have seen that shit before in a mediocre anime" to me, Falcom should put more faults in their characters so they don't feels so shallow. By the way it's not just CS most FALCOM games have the same issue of absolute good vs absolute evil where the heroes are pure with a few personal problems and the villains are just a bunch of piece of shits, Also, does FALCOM uses two writers on CS? because it feels like one wanted to make a serious political story and the other something like a shounen anime or Persona 3.

both are not needed, i favor some fault to characters as a means to make them more human but nothing ridiculous like Dangan, small things like a character been a bit greedy, jealousy( not the Alisa type ), small stuff that is never overblown but make them all more real and complete instead of just KIND+GOOD+TRAGIC PAST/TRAUMA+OVERBLOWN FRIENDSHIP. As for tragic past i agree that is ridiculous on the Kiseki series Estelle/Joshua, Kevin, Lloyd( too a far lesser degree) and Rean all have some past trauma and i hope the Calvard arc drop that crap because it's getting tiring, the only one that was really well done was Renne which is one of the only 3 characters i actually liked from TitS the others been Olivert and Richard.

In my experience that might mean the game takes so much space or be random, exaggerated numbers. Blazblue CF said it wants 50 GBs of storage, and it was 45 GBs. I don't know how they could manage to remove dual audio and have it take more space at the same time, but they did it anyway.

Some companies just put random shit there though, usually exaggerated so less people refund because it doesn't work well I guess. Requirements might be about right or complete bullshit.


There's like a month before release, they might do so still and I'd be surprised if they didn't. Also, sound files and movies take the most space for the majority of games. Size almost doubling isn't irrational when you consider you have to put two versions of cinematics and speech for each language.

Well, it's turn based combat there isn't much else to be said about it. It's a bit deeper in regards to how you acquire the magic you use, however. There's also turn order and buffs/debuffs that randomly happen on the turn list so if you are tactical about your moves you can get those buffs before your enemy does.

It's not basic turn based; there is a small grid system which you use to move characters along. Your spells and attacks have ranges, and some have areas of effects. Like certain spells can target small circular AOEs, or large circular AOEs, or even lines. So for example you can group the party together for things like AOE healing spells or buffs, but at the same time if you stick together, everyone is can be targeted by AOE attacks or spells.

Spells (or arts, as the game calls them) themselves are cast differently than normal turn based games. Depending on the power of the spell, it may take a while to cast. When you select a spell, the character starts casting it, and will finish casting it on their next turn.

You can also see the turn order on the side of the screen, manipulating the turn order is a mechanic. You may have abilities that speed you up or delay an enemy's turn. Different abilities will make your next turn come faster or slower as well. Like if you're casting a small spell, the caster's next turn will come faster.

Even with all of that, normal battles still go fairly quickly. You can also see enemies on the field before getting into a battle with them.

Outside of the battle system, there is customization of party members' abilities and spells using the quartz system. Using the quartz system you can buff a character's strengths or cover their weaknesses. Like you can take a arts-focused character and pump him or her up with quartz that buff arts, such as more MP (or EP in this game), more ATS stat (Arts Strength) etc, Or you can put some defense quartz in their to make up for their defense, or a mixture of both.

Hell, if you want, you can pump up their physical attack. It won't work as well as characters more geared to physical attacking. You can probably sit down for a while once you have enough quartz, customizing each character, or even switching things out and putting things in as the situation demands.
