Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Dec 182019

Remember earlier this year when Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo said he was confident NIS America would localize the Crossbell arc if they were brought to newer consoles?

Well, buckle up, because Falcom has now revealed Zero no Kiseki Kai and Ao no Kiseki Kai, upgraded remasters of Zero and Ao for the PlayStation 4.

They will be out in Japan in spring 2020.

No localization news has been announced at this point, but this feels like our best chance to finally get official translations of these two unlocalized Trails games. NISA will be at PAX South on January 17 with new announcements, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet.

Falcom also announced Hajimari no Kiseki, or Trails of the Beginning for summer 2020 in Japan. Although I haven’t read too much about it since I’m avoiding spoilers for the series, it sounds like this will be a bridge to the next Trails arc.

(Maybe this is the spark I need to finally get back to Trails in the Sky SC!)

This is pretty exciting for Trails fans, but before I wrap up this blog post, I want to shift gears entirely and talk about Resident Evil for a minute. RE3make has been announced, Resistance is part of it as its multiplayer component, and… Capcom might have another Resident Evil game in development?

Resident Evil Ambassadors got a new email today, mainly detailing a new ranking feature coming to the program. However, the email also included an unexpected detail:

Also, as limited offers to Ambassadors, we have invitations to a play test session of our unannounced title*, and priority seats at our game show booth**.”

Either that’s poor wording and it’s meant to indicate that Ambassadors will be invited to play tests of unannounced titles in the future, or it’s quiet confirmation that they have an as-yet-unannounced game in development. The footnote only clarifies that you need to actually sign up for the play test to be eligible for selection.

Some people think it might not be a Resident Evil title at all, but this time my bet’s on Resident Evil 8.

So, when do you think we’ll hear more about Trails localizations? What do you think the Resident Evil email is referencing? Share your thoughts in the comments!
