The RPG titles are clearly one of the most popular ones in the gaming world, especially when they are made in Japan. Sadly some of the titles never get to see the light of day outside the limits of the lad of the rising Sun. While it took its time to see the light beyond the Japanese market, finally, Bandai Namco has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero will be heading to the West, so it will be on September 30 when this JRPG will be released on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
The title in question was originally published in Japan in 2010 for PSP and later ended up coming to PS Vita, but it has not been until now that finally Bandai Namco and NIS America have been encouraged to bring to the rest of the world this version that will come with English texts and Japanese voices. So, what is this game all about? Well, let’s talk about it.
About the game
In this adventure, the protagonist is Lloyd Bannings, who returns to his hometown to follow in the footsteps of his late brother and join the Crossbell police department. From that moment on, he and his teammates will realize that criminal gangs and terrible secrets are roaming the streets.
Players will have to discover and put an end to the darkness that looms in the city while they fight strategic battles in which they will have to take advantage of the skills and teamwork of the characters to succeed. In addition, the game will have the option to skip dialogues or speed up battles depending on what each player prefers.
We mentioned that this game was originally released over a decade ago for the PlayStation Portable, so naturally you’d expect they’ve updated the game at least quite a bit. And yes, you’d be right. So, what are some of the improvements you’ll see in this version?
It will include improved and high-resolution image, not to mention that it now runs at 60 frames per second. Not only the graphics have been polished compared to PSP, but also the quality of the music and various sound effects. There are also several added Trails of Cold Steel-style options, such as the ability to skip scenes during battles, and the interface has been adapted for the new format. "Even players new to Trails will enjoy these games without any problems," says Falcom. The Trails saga (Kiseki) has surpassed 4.3 million copies sold.
The entire Trails saga is really something you need to experience if you consider yourself a fan of the RPG genre. Sure, it may not be as legendary and iconic as Dragon Quest, but it’s incredibly good. This title is an excellent way to finally be able to enjoy the game without having to learn japanese.
It is improved over the original title and that game was already incredible just as it was. It’s not a really hard game, but you’ll love the gameplay and story.
- Playable in English
- Excellent storyline
- Unique combat system
- Too easy
