Total play time around 70 hours.
Technically, for Trails of Cold Steel II to sell, they have to really market the first one. Because I'm very sure that the game will sell lower than the first game. Afterall, nobody wants to play a game mid-story, and not everybody wants to play Cold Steel II if they don't like the first one (gameplay doesn't click, or story sucks, etc.)
Sadly one of the big problems with the Sen no Kiseki series is that Sen I, is pretty boring at times and is really just one massive introduction to the characters, factions, story, etc. So a lot of people get turned off because they didn't really do much of anything major aside from the events in the prologue. And also since Sen is just 1 piece in a large series of games that are all parts of one massive story and events, it's even harder for some people to get interested.
However, Sen no Kiseki II is just outright amazing. It starts off right where I ended with it's cliff hanger, and then goes full throttle from there on until the end. And then even after it ends, It STILL keeps on keeping on by giving fans the special Crossbell Gaiden chapter staring Lloyd and Rixia.
I probably spent some 2-300 hours on the games. (Fie is just outright Broken in II, it's great)
