FC/SC ARE the full story. The 3rd (not TC!) is an extra story with different main character seven; it just takes place in the same settings and use the same engine.

Indeed. There is no third chapter.

trails of the sky the 3rd is not part of the stoyline. Its a side game. The storyline is completed with SC. We may not get The 3rd. Not buying FC and SC cause of potentially of no the 3rd will not help us get the the 3rd.

As has been said, FC and SC are the complete story; 'The Third' is more of a sidegame than anything else, though it's still important. The Trails series is on it's seventh installment and counting in Japan, and the Third introduces a number of plot points that prove to be important later on. With that said though, Trails FC and SC are their own complete standalone story when taken on their lonesome; it just happens to be part of a larger series is all.

One thing I like to say to describe how the trilogy works.

FC is the setup. Think of it like boxing a gift, and the gift is the story. SC is the fight to put the wrapping paper on the gift, and putting a nice neat little bow on it. Then 3rd is the jackass friend who points out all the problems you made in wrapping said gift, or that your bow is tied wrong, or that you can see parts of the gift in gaps from your wrapping job.

FC/SC wrap up the story very well, but there are a bunch of little plot holes here and there throughout SC. You may be so focused on the main story as introduced in FC, that you won't notice them. Not without looking deeper for them, anyway.

3rd basically takes all of those plot hooks that were left behind in SC and shines a giant effin' spotlight on them and turns your attention to A LOT of problems going down in Zemuria outside of Estelle and Joshua's scope of vision.

And it resolves none of them.

(Conversely, 3rd is one of my favorites of the entire series at the same time, only challenged by Ao no Kiseki.)

How do people know the trails series storyline so well? Do so many know Japanese? Or did you just hear that from others?

Obviously someone is playing the Japanese versions. There's a whole QA thread to ask questions of the people who played the Japanese version over on the XSEED forums.

The majority of Estelle and Joshua's story is supposed to conclude with SC. They will continue to be characters in the Third, but just side characters, not main characters.

wait the 3rd doesn't resolve any of the plot holes? odd i would expect it would.

I think a number of them do.

And more specifically, omgfloofy runs one of the most important Falcom fansites on the web: http://www.esterior.net/

They've got an IRC channel where you can hang out and chat with a number of people who have played these games in Japanese. It's #falcom on irc.rizon.net .

From what I've heard, the Third serves as a transition to the other games in the Trails subseries.

The 3rd is basically the setup for plot threads in future games. There is the main story, and it DOES resolve itself, but in resolving itself, it ALSO adds in more questions.

Not buying the game sure is going to help XSEED to release the sequels.
