Trails from Zero & Trails to Azure Western Sales Have Exceeded Expectations; Ys Western Sales Remain Strong

Developer Nihon Falcom recently released their “Notice of Differences between Forecast and Actual Results Regarding the Fiscal Year of 2023,” detailing various intricacies regarding their sales both domestically and globally.

Thankfully, it appears as if the developer’s flagship franchises are doing well in the West:

“Sales of the Ys and Trails series in North America, Europe, and Asia remained strong. In addition, sales of the English versions of Trails from Zero (released in September 2022) and Trails to Azure (released in March 2023) exceeded expectations. As a result, net sales, operating income, ordinary income, and net income for the first half of the current fiscal year exceeded the previously announced figures, respectively.”

Thanks to our team’s Ryuji for translating this statement and to @AvengerMags on Twitter for catching this news.

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on further Falcom announcements.
