Developer Nihon Falcom has released its latest financial report, revealing a plethora of information regarding their continued growth with various IPs, notably Trails and Ys.
Page 19 of the document announced that two Falcom games are planned to launch for Nintendo Switch during the Fiscal Year Ending September 2024. One of these games is the previously announced Nintendo Switch port of The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak, known in Japan as Kuro no Kiseki. The other game is currently unknown.
“Release two Nintendo Switch games in Japan, including The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki for Nintendo Switch.”
This second Switch title could be another port or something wholly original, though the former seems far likelier, given Falcom’s releases on the platform. Ys: The Oath in Felghana Memoire, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, and Tokyo Xanadu eX+ all saw native Nintendo Switch ports in Japan, so it’s fair to believe that another port will continue this trend.
Regardless, it’s anyone’s guess. We’ll keep you all updated on these incoming releases. Multiple Falcom Switch releases were teased in last year’s financial report.

The next Western Trails release will be Trails through Daybreak.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak is the eleventh mainline entry in the Trails series, taking place after the events of The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie. Following the war with Erebonia initiated by Operation Jormungandr, the Republic of Calvard has thrived economically thanks to reparations. However, concerns regarding political reform and an abundance of immigrants have made the citizenry endure additional strife.
Within this tumultuous republic, protagonist Van Arkride makes his living as a Spriggan. This profession takes on the roles of many as it remains within the gray confines of legality that legitimate avenues of employment can’t accept for one reason or another.

Combat in Trails through Daybreak features seamless switching between action gameplay on the field and turn-based encounters with “the revamped AT (Action Time) Battle system.” Orbments have also undergone a fundamental shakeup thanks to Shard Skills, part of the “sixth-generation combat orbment, Xipha.”
Another new gameplay feature in Trails through Daybreak is the Alignment system. The outcomes of the choices Van makes will lead toward Law, Chaos, or in-between, affecting future allies, antagonists, dialogue options, city status, and even jobs one can take on.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC in the West in Summer 2024.
