I just found this on Magicbox.com:
Nihon Falcom announced Eiyu Densetsu: Zero no Kiseki Full Voice Version [Legend of Heroes: Trail of Blue Full Voice Version] for PS Vita, the game will be coming in spring 2012. The game was released on PSP in September 2010, the PSV version will have full voiced dialog throughout the entire game.
First of all, I'm not totally sure if it's Ao or Zero, since it calls it Zero in the untranslated text, but then calls it Trails of Blue in the translated.
So, my question is, Xseed, if you were to release one version or another....would you go for the PSV/Full Voice Edition? I hope I hope I hope! Heck, this being a ways away & being for PSV, might give XSEED a better chance of releasing it, maybe do some catching up, since TitS 2 still has a ways to go, not to mention TitS 3. But, this version would be more expensive to do for 2 reasons I can think of, 1 is the voice acting will cost more money, 2 is that the flash memory cards will cost more money as well.
I guess XSEED could release it with Japanese voices, and English text. Like Corpse Party?
That only works when there are text boxes for every voiced line (aside from obvious stuff like wordless screams) so the player can follow along with what's being said in some other form. The problem is that Zero's battle voices don't have text accompanying them so everything the characters say during fights would be untranslated.

A lil more info....kinda, this is from RPGFan:
The official site lists the port as a collaboration project between Falcom of course, Pyramid (Patapon) and Chara-Ani, known for anime character goods. It's not clear what the companies' roles are regarding the game.
-Full voice-overs for the main scenario. -A total of 157 voiced characters. -Over 20,000 voice patterns. -74 music tracks. -A new theme song, "Way of Life," performed by Ms. Kanako Kotera of Falcom JDK. -New animations. -New sub-scenarios. -High-resolution graphics. -Menu touch controls. -Additional mini-games that utilize the functionality of PS Vita, such -as Darts 501, Clock Memory, and Coro Coro Misshi.
Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki Evolution PSV Port's Delay Listed The Wonder Goo retail site lists a September release date for The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki Evolution, the PlayStation Vita port of The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki. The PS Vita port of the 2010 PSP game will add voices for all of the dialogue. The port was originally scheduled for release this Spring.
Don't hold your breath. The amount of voicework is so ridiculous that even Falcom couldn't tackle the project on their own and they're the ones making a handy profit on this franchise every year. A localization company like XSEED wouldn't have a prayer of managing it so that means leaving all the voices (one of the selling points of the game) undubbed. Granted, companies do that so it's not entirely impossible but I suspect that if XSEED ever thinks of bringing Zero over, we'll be seeing a PSN release of the PSP version.
