The game plays similarly to its predecessor; a role-playing video game with turn based battles. However, several new features were added. Most notably being the addition of chain crafts, attacks in which 2, 3, or 4 members of the party may attack enemies together.
The game's story is a direct sequel to the first chapter of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, with the story picking up directly after the first entry's ending.
