With details released only a few days back, Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution is the Playstation Vita port of the original Playstation Portable version by Falcom, a sort of direct sequel to The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky which is now available in English thanks to the folks at XSEED Games and Ghostlight. This port is of course an enhanced version which comes with a few added bonuses such as full voice acting, minigames, improved visual presentation and new musical tracks.
The entire main scenario and its 160ish characters all have voice acting included with something around 20,000 lines in total voiced – the highest in the history of Falcom. In terms of the actual music, 74 arranged or new tracks will be included which is a hefty number for any game to begin with, along with a new opening theme. Moving on to visuals, it seems like they have optimized the current graphics for the higher resolution screen of the Vita and added some new animated movies. The game itself will include new sub-quests and several new mini-games that utilize the consoles unique control mechanisms – Darts 501, Clock Memory and Coro Coro Misshi and three examples.
The game itself is due for release during Summer 2012 in Japan. While there is no word on if there will be an international release, reception from the public for The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky seems to have been pretty good, so I would like to think that a company might get around to acquiring it.
