Nihon Falcom’s shareholder meeting is going on right now in Japan and the company just announced ports of The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki for PS4. These are both getting released in 2020 as Kai versions. If you’re not aware, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I and II on PS4 were released as The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki Kai and Sen no Kiseki II Kai in Japan. It is worth noting that Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo teased ports recently (via Gematsu). As of now, it is unclear if these versions are based on the PS Vita releases (for voice acting) or just on the PSP originals. Watch the trailer for the PSP release (with fan subtitles) below:
As of this writing, a localisation hasn’t been announced but NIS America will likely announce a localisation around the time the Japanese versions release. These two games make up the Crossbell arc that a lot of longtime fans of the series have been praising.
