During today’s Nihon Falcom shareholder meeting, the developer announced the next mainline Trails (Kiseki) game releasing in Japan next year. This title is the sequel to the currently released Kuro no Kiseki and is called Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin. It is releasing for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan in Fall 2022.
Thanks to translator @Hansuke21 for sharing this news on Twitter. They are also covering the event’s announcements.
No new art was unveiled, and we will update this piece when that occurs.
One last thing, @/enonami (Katsumi Enami) coming back to do the art illustrations for the cast.

The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is the latest entry of the ongoing Trails series, taking place after the recently concluded Cold Steel Erebonia arc, and after The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki, releasing in the west as The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie in 2023.
This new title takes place in Calvard, one of the central regions of the series’ setting, the continent of Zemuria. While there are several returning characters from the Liberl, Crossbell, and Erebonia arcs, there is also a slew of new characters, each with their own struggles, relationships, and goals that enhance the liveliness of the in-game world.
Additionally, combat has undergone a significant shake-up, with action now freely swappable with turn-based in several circumstances, granting an impressive degree of player choice. The game is currently available in Japan for the PlayStation 4.
