If you’re a western fan of The Legend of Heroes series then you probably have heard of Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki. The two titles were created as a bridge between Trails in the Sky and Trails of Cold Steel, but sadly, the titles have yet to receive a western release.
Incidentally, the consoles that the titles have released on, PSP and PS Vita, aren’t supported anymore, which puts the potential publisher and the developer in a tight position when working out ways to bring the game west. However, all hope is not lost for fans as Nihon Falcom’s President Toshihiro Kondo has commented on what it would take for the two titles to come west in an interview with Noisy Pixel, by saying, “As creators, we want as many people as possible to play these games and also to give Japanese players a chance to replay them. Although there isn’t anything to officially announce, we are working internally to figure out how to get these games on newer consoles.”
Interestingly, Kondo-san added, “And once we do, I’m confident that NISA will translate them for you and release them in the west.”
So it seems like it’s only a matter of time before The Legend of Heroes fans get the good news that they’ve been waiting for. When that time will be is another story, but at least the team is acknowledging the potential of the titles coming to the west and on updated hardware.
