Is Falcom’s Mascot, Mishy, Doing Alright?

Developer Nihon Falcom recently posted a random picture via their official Twitter account that’s simultaneously charming yet creepy. Mishy, the company’s mascot frequently depicted throughout the Trails (Kiseki) franchise, is seen wandering a crosswalk in the middle of the night. The combination of the low lighting and the realistic depiction of Mishy in such a lonely atmosphere is somewhat worrying. This naturally brings up the question, is Mishy okay?

Regardless, we’re just joking around. It’s a really bizarre photo, though.

The next localized entry for the franchise will be Trails from Zero.

Trails from Zero has players take control of protagonist Lloyd Bannings and the rest of the Special Support Section as they aid the citizens of Crossbell City with various tasks and gradually uncover a deep-seated corruption at the heart of the city with criminality at its core.

Alongside the strategical turn-based combat fans have expected from the series, the addition of cooperative attacks with party members makes the bonds between the Special Support Section an active ingredient in combat potential. This release boasts a High-Speed mode, which prior localized Trails entries contain. This functionality allows players to speed past cutscenes, combat, and exploration for whatever reasons they deem fit.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is releasing for Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam in Fall 2022.

The Limited Edition of Trails from Zero’s localized release is currently available to pre-order for U.S. and European customers.

Merchandise retailer Pin Box is selling various official Crossbell-related goodies.
