Trails JRPG Series Has Shipped Over 5 Million Copies As Falcom Raises Revenue Forecast

Today Nihon Falcom revised its forecast for the upcoming financial results for the fiscal year ending on September 30.

Today Nihon Falcom revised its forecast for the upcoming financial results for the fiscal year ending on September 30.

The forecast for sales was increased from 2.15 billion yen to 2.45 billion yen, while the prediction for both operating and ordinary income was increased from one billion yen to 1.25 billion.

This comes hot on the tail of the Japanese release of The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki for PS4.

We also learn that the whole series has now shipped over 5,000,0000 units, up to the previously-announced 4.5 million units in February.

That’s certainly an impressive result for a series that is considered quite niche among the JRPG genre but has gained more and more popularity over the past few years.

In the west, we’re still waiting for the release of the previous game, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV which is coming to PS4 on October 27, 2020. The Nintendo Switch and PC versions are still marked for a generic “2021” launch.

f you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s how publisher NIS America describes it officially.

The Erebonian Empire is on the brink of all-out war! 

Taking place shortly after the ending of Trails of Cold Steel III, the heroes of Class VII find themselves against the full force of the Empire in an attempt to stop its path of total domination. Further, the hero of the Erebonian Civil War and Class VII’s instructor, Rean Schwarzer, has gone missing. Now, the students of Class VII, old and new, must unite with heroes from all over the continent to create the only chance the world has to be spared from total destruction.
