Yeah, I've got high hopes for that one. I hope they don't let me down. (lol)

Shaun

Good to see your going to check out Alice Order and Grimms Notes! Can't wait to hear your imps on the two. I haven't got into Alice Order yet and I'm very much enjoying Grimms Notes.
Fluent in Japanese your lucky I'm a long way off from fluent

Shaun, do you accept nominations for readers' choice reloads here? And if so -- would you consider Sid Meier's Pirates! an RPG? Exploration, battle, character progression... right?

I just got legend of heroes trails in the sky from the Japan App Store and it's a super good JRPG! Tough too especially if you're trying to be a bit perfectionist with it. Love all the various elements to the game the take out v sit down food, the turn based battles, orbaments is great, this is all around one of my fav RPGs now and I just got deep into FF 9 it's okay I'm gonna just juggle both right now but this is my game to play this weekend!
Worth the 2000 yen
The last remnant is one I'm very much considering buying as well.

Is that the old PSP game? I have heard very, very good things about that. Please, please, please can we have an English translation?

I believe it was PSP or vita one the controls are like the ps handhelds I didn't own either one so can't remember. I think it's on steam in English.
It's a very very good RPG for sure. It won't be leaving Japan on mobile I would be shocked if it did.

I think only the first one got an English translation. The others never made it out of Japan. I would love to see this make it over here. At least a translation for that does exist...

The Legend Of Heroes: Trails series has such a complicated situation around it, haha. The first game (Trails In The Sky FC) is available on PSP and PC in English, and that's the game that popped up on the Japanese App Store recently. It's another one of those streaming games, like Final Fantasy 13 and The Last Remnant, so I doubt we'll see it in English. I'm hoping the Ys games do well enough for DotEmu to go after ports of the Trails games, though. They'd have to use XSEED's translation because otherwise there's no way it would be feasible (These games famously have some of the largest, most complicated scripts of any JRPGs).

Trails In the Sky SC *finally* came out in English late last year on PC and PSP (digital only). Trails In The Sky 3rd Chapter is for now not planned to get an English release. Instead, XSEED jumped ahead to the next good jumping on point for the series, Trails Of Cold Steel, which came out on PS4 and PS Vita in December of last year. They'll be following with Trails Of Cold Steel 2, and I doubt we'll miss too many Trails games from here on out. I just hope they can go back and fill in the blanks one day. Third Chapter, Trails In Zero, and Trails In The Blue were all skipped so that they could get caught up.

Yes, this is a good place to nominate candidates. I think Pirates is fine within the loose definition we've been using for the Reload feature. I'll add it into the master list.
