In this post, you will find all the latest details, videos, and pictures for the latest entry in the long-running The Legend of Heroes series: The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak!

It will launch this February in Japan, and this Summer in Europe and North America, and in the months leading to it, we will keep updating this post with all the new details, videos, and pictures shared by Nihon Falcom and NIS America!

November 3rd

Nihon Falcom have announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak will launch on February 15th in Japan. Unlike the ports of previous games in the series (which were handled by Nippon Ichi Software), they will publish the game themselves in that region (which implies they ported it in-house instead of relying to an external developer).

This version of the game is based on the PlayStation 5 version, which means it includes the High Speed Mode (Turbo Mode) and the Archives feature, along with various features and controls optimised for the Nintendo Switch. And of course, there’s a wealth of DLC included: 33 pieces in total!

In Japan, the game will cost 5 400 Yen (retail and digital). As pre-order bonus at retail, Nihon Falcom is offering a music album: Best Sound Collection -KURO NO KISEKI-, which includes popular tracks from the Trails through Daybreak arrange album. And for those looking to buy the game digitally, there will be a 10% off discount until launch day.
