In a recent article by Japanese outlet Denfamicogamer, it was shown that HoYoverse’s Honkai Star Rail team had visited the offices of Nihon Falcom in Japan. This comes after one of the producers, David, had once expressed his love for Nihon Falcom’s Trails series in an interview back in April 2023.
While the article itself doesn’t showcase anything of note other than the fact that David got a Tio Plato keychain from Kondo, perhaps one other factor really stands out. At the very end of the article, it is revealed that a Denfamicogamer journalist was on the scene, and they asked Kondo, Falcom’s president, the following question: “If you hold such respect with each other, then why don’t you collaborate on each other’s titles?”, to which Kondo replied with a resounding “We are always ready to do so.” While this doesn’t directly confirm that we will soon see Trails characters in Honkai Star Rail, it is cool that Falcom is very open to collaborating with HoYoverse in the future.
