The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero will be released on September 27 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC
NIS America announced that The Legend of Heroes: The Trails of Zero will launch on September 27 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam, Epic, GOG).
If you are not already familiar, zero trails and Trails to Azure are a duology of games set between the Trails in the sky trilogy and Trails of Cold Steel tetralogy (in other words, these are the 4th and 5th games in the overall series, often referred to as the “Crossbell Duology”). They have long been unlocalized into English, acting as a sort of “missing gap” in the storyline that Western players have only recently had a chance to use fan translation efforts to fill. The games originally released for PSP in Japan in 2010/2011.
NIS America also previously announced upcoming localizations for Trails to Azure, Paths in Reverie, and The legend of Nayuta: endless trailsscheduled for release in 2023.
A release date trailer and description of Trails from Zero can be found below, via NIS America.
