NIS America debuted the character trailer for Trails to Azure and the game is set to release next year.
NIS America released the newest trailer for The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure. It features the return of the Special Support Section cast from Trails to Zero, as well as some new characters joining.
Lloyd Bannings, Elie MacDowell, Tio Plato, and Randy Orlando are all familiar faces as they were the main part of Crossbell's Special Support Section. Noel Seeker, the sergeant major of the Crossbell Guardian Force, and Wazy Hemisphere, the leader of a delinquent group called the Testaments, both join the Special Support Section.
NIS America has also revealed a Limited Edition version of the game that costs $90. It includes the "Azure Archives art book," "Anthems of Crossbeel Part II," select soundtrack, acrylic character stands, a steelbook, "United as One" cloth poster, and a copy of the game, all housed in one collector's box.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure launches sometime in 2023 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The first game in the Crossbell duology, Trails to Zero, launches on September 27 in North America and September 30 in Europe.
