Falcom Reveals In-House Game Development Lineup; Unannounced Trails, Action RPG, Ports & More

Developer Nihon Falcom has revealed its Business Plan and Growth Potential Matters Report for the end of 2023, which contains numerous pieces of information regarding the company’s continued output.

In particular, there is a rough schedule and list of Falcom’s upcoming in-house projects. Aside from the recently announced The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell O Zemuria- and the Nintendo Switch port of The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak, there is an unknown action RPG and other Trails game in development.

Further, an unknown PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 port is in the works, alongside an unannounced Nintendo Switch title, and the development of three titles has been suspended.

There is much to speculate from this wave of news. Firstly, perhaps the three suspended port titles are the Trails in the Sky trilogy. Falcom’s president recently openly expressed interest in bringing those games to modern platforms. Also, maybe the unannounced action RPG is the sequel to Tokyo Xanadu, which has been hinted to be in the works for quite some time.

As for the PlayStation port, perhaps it’s Ys: The Oath in Felghana Memoire, which has only seen a Nintendo Switch release. However, this is all speculation.

You can view a list of these upcoming Falcom projects below:
