Falcom's latest Legend of Heroes title, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Nayuta, was shaped by player feedback from previous title Trails in the Sky, including complaints that boss battles dragged on for too long, according to the developer's president Toshihiro Kondo in a recent interview with Siliconera.

The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, originally announced two weeks ago, raised a lot of eyebrows when people learned it would be a PlayStation 3 and PS Vita dual-release project, Falcom's first. "We had a lot of gamers who really brought it home to us that they wanted to play this series on a home console," Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo told Famitsu magazine this week. "To some extent, we also wanted to flex our muscles and explore what we could...
