Shoot Lasers In The Summer, Create Crystal Lance In the Winter

Trails of Nayuta, a story oriented action RPG from Falcom, puts players in control of two characters. Noi can cast different spells, but the magic she uses depends on the season in the game.


Spring: Luna Butterfly


Summer: Corona Laser


Autumn: Maple Wind


Winter: Crystal Lance


Nayuta is all melee. He can attack with a sword (left) or equip a two-handed sword (right).

Falcom also teased two more characters (a man and a woman?) with silhouettes.

Trails of Nayuta comes out in Japan on July 26.

    Goddamnit Falcom,stop with the awesomeness or the world will explode…aw,forget it.GO CRAZY FALCOM! :D


    Hmmm that male character looks a little like Arios…
    maybe its the katana/sword… xD

    • I thought he looks like f/SN assassin.

  • I just nostalgia’d hard when I saw all of this. It reminded me of Secret of Mana when you’re trying to get the sprite home.

    Its a shame it took so long for Falcom’s titles to get picked up in the West. I really hope someone can finish the rest of the TiTS games (on PSP). These titles can do well over here but I think it would be best to skip some of the other releases and get to the ones on current hardware, meaning the Vita port of Zero no Kiseki, while the game library is still small enough for it not to get lost, as is often the case with these types of games (sadly).

       Trails really needs a better nickname….Tits,my friends wouldnt stop laughing.

        The fist time someone mentiond TiTS to me I thought I was being harrassed. “Hey you have to play this TiTS game its awesome “….If they hadnt have flung the game at me after saying that  my dear friend would have been blackend and burned.

    The good thing is that unlike Zero/Ai no Kiseki, Nayuta looks quite playable with minimal language skills.  A lot like the Ys games – I’m sure there’s plenty of story to be found, but it looks like you can just enjoy the always satisfying Falcom action RPG gameplay and get by without really following the storyline.

    Definitely importing this, and hoping to see the Trails trilogy in English (Steam?), then perhaps Zero on Vita.  Then who knows, maybe Falcom follows up with a Vita enhanced version of Ao no Kiseki…

       Nayuta could still have a chance if the script isn’t as big as the Trails games’ and its plot is completely stand alone, or at least that was what I gathered from a post from Wyrdwad some weeks ago.
