The Legend Of Heroes: Trails From Zero Launches In The West This September


The Legend of Heroes series has had a big gap in the West in the form of Crossbell for many years now. Last year, we finally got confirmation that we would be getting both games from the Crossbell fan-made duology, as well as two other games from this giant series. Now we know exactly when we can join the Special Support Service.

Fresh from disclosure his new logo yesterday, NIS America announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero – the first game in the Crossbell series and the fourth game in the Trails/Kiseki series – will be released on September 27 in North America and September 30 in Europe. It feels much closer than just saying “Fall 2022”, isn’t it?

The story trailer (above) gives us a glimpse of the game’s four protagonists that make up Special Support: Lloyd Bannings, a rookie detective who has returned to Crossbell after living abroad for three years; Eli McDowell, granddaughter of Mayor Crossbell; Randy Orlando, a gambling womanizer who used to be a member of the Crossbell Guardian Force; and Tio Plato, who works at the famed Epstein Institute of Technology. We’re also getting a glimpse of what kind of shady deals might well be taking place in the landlocked, self-governing, demilitarized state of Crossbell.

Longtime fans are sure to recognize the names and locations in the game, especially if they’ve played a real PC and Sony exclusive. Footprints in the sky games.

We don’t have an exact release date for the sequel, The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure, but we do know it will release sometime in 2023, which means all gaps will be filled before Trails into Reverie, the tenth game. I will come out late—next year.
