Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki are two of the most beloved games in The Legend of Heroes franchise, but they've never been officially released outside of Japan. What's more, they're both being remastered and released on PlayStation 4 very soon -- Zero no Kiseki Kai is due out on later this month, while Ao no Kiseki Kai launches next month. Again, though, only in Japan.
But with the Trails of Cold Steel games gaining popularity here in the West thanks to the series' PS4 focus, many fans have been wondering whether Falcom will bring the aforementioned Crossbell saga to North America and Europe. We don't have a definitive answer yet, but it's certainly sounding like a possibility.
In a new interview with Gematsu, Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo mentions a potential Western release. He says: "I very much regret that we were unable to release Zero and Ao [in the west]. I think that releasing on PlayStation 4 will lead to an opportunity to release these games in North America and Europe."
Hopefully, once the remasters are out in Japan, and Trails of Cold Steel IV has arrived (it's set to launch this Fall in the West), Falcom will push for Zero and Ao localisation.
Would you play the Crossbell games on PS4? Join Lloyd and the gang in the comments section below.
Hell yes I would, take my money! Falcom et al can do no wrong with the Trails series in my eyes. The more games from the entire universe/franchise for the West, the better! <3
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
Yep. I will definitely get them if and when they appear.
Yes . 100% yes! Get them over here Falcom! No excuses 🙂
@Incarna wait what? O hell yes!!!!! At last. I cant wait. I really wish it didnt take so long between initial release and the western port with Falcom titles.
That article was full of great news. The info about Ys NOX being prepared for release in the west is also awesome.
Day 1 for Trails of Cold Steel IV on PS4 this fall is a given
@Incarna Ditto. I'm not much for the Trails franchise, based on my limited experience with it, but Ys VIII was one of the best JRPGs I've ever played. Ys IX will jump straight to the top of my most wanted list when a localization is announced.
I recently just finished TOCS2 and as much as I absolutely loved it the final chapter left a bad taste in my mouth cuz it just dragged SO MUCH!But despite that id most definitely pick both these up day one.
Never heard of it but I'd give it a shot
Yep! Make it so!
Please localize all games!
