We already knew that the cast of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash are students, and that the game takes place on a pretty extensive school campus. However, there was nothing to indicate just how big a role the academic aspect of the game would play. It turns out that your studies are actually pretty important.
Players will be able to participate in mock battles on the campus’ grounds against their fellow students. Depending on how well you perform in these matches, you could win special items and even medals straight from the headmaster himself. Characters are also rewarded with Academic Points, or AP. Collecting enough AP, and raising your character’s rank will also win you special items. If you’re less of a hands-on sort of learner, then you might be relieved to know that attending lectures and finishing quests will also be a part of your student life.
It might not be the sort of school system we’re all used to, but considering some of the beasts these kids are up against, I don’t blame them for training hard.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash will be released in Japan on September 26 for PlayStation 3 and Vita systems.
