The narrative follows Lloyd Bannings, one of the four playable characters. He is a rookie detective returning to the city-state of Crossbells to be a part of the Special Support Section.

Other members include Elie McDowell, Randy Orlando, and Tio Plato. Elie belongs to a wealthy and powerful family, while Randy is an ex-soldier who belonged to the Crossbell Guardian Force. Tio is a girl who is a technology expert at the Epstein Foundation.

The gang uncovers the shady ways of the criminal underworld of Crossbell but stumbles across a sinister plot far worse than any crime organization's dealings.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails From Zero is a trip back in time


The events of one of the most popular entries in the series, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, also unfold midway through Zero. The franchise is a traditional JRPG through and through, and Zero is no different.

It is a very narrative-driven game that features many characters with interesting backgrounds. In fact, there's a decent chunk of lengthy cutscenes throughout the experience, so gamers who aren't fond of that might be turned off.

The gameplay is driven by exploration, while combat is turn-based. During combat, players can use a variety of weapons and spells to aid them in overcoming the game's countless foes. All four heroes are controllable as well.

Funnily enough, developer Nihon Falcom's upcoming JRPG is a re-release of a port of a remaster. The game was originally released for the PSP in 2010 and was later remastered for the Vita. In 2020, the Vita remaster was moved over to the PS4 and later to the Switch in 2021. The localization team at Geofront translated the game's PC version to English in 2020. Now, NIS America will be working with the fan translation from Geofront and use it as a base for their official release.

The Legend Of Heroes: Trails From Zero is set to be released on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
