NIS America recently revealed plans to also localize Trails from Zero sequel The Legend of Heroes Trails to Azure, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails Into Reverie for PS4, Switch, and PC all the way into 2023.
Unfortunately, this means that we’ll have to wait quite a long time to play newer games like The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki and its sequel The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II – Crimson Sin, which has recently been announced for Japan. At the moment, no information has been revealed about their localizations.
