Publisher NIS America has begun the preorder period for the limited edition of The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Meanwhile, the European preorder period will begin on January 17. Developer Falcom originally announced in June 2021 that Trails from Zero would be coming west on Switch, PS4, and PC, and it also announced back then The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie are coming west on those platforms in 2023.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is launching in fall 2022, and those who preorder the $89.99 limited edition will receive the game, an SSS Classified Files hardcover art book, the Anthems of Crossbell official soundtrack, a “Special Support Section, assemble!” cloth poster, an acrylic stand, a SteelBook case, and a collector’s box. The image below teases what to expect.
Trails from Zero and sequel Trails to Azure compose the “Crossbell duology,” and the two RPGs were originally released for PlayStation Portable (PSP) in Japan in 2010 and 2011 respectively. The games contain a lot of little details that would then be referenced in the subsequent Trails of Cold Steel games, and now fans in the West will finally be able to pick up on all of those references.
There is currently plenty of stock of the limited edition of The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero available for preorder at NIS America, so there isn’t necessarily a rush. But if you know you’re going to enjoy the game, why wait?
