Kiseki 10th anniversary

The 10th anniversary logo of the Trails (Kiseki) series.

The Trails Series (軌跡シリーズ Kiseki Shirizu?) is the third installment of the Legend of Heroes RPG series, developed by Nihon Falcom Corporation.

By chronological order, the first game The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is regarded as The Legend of Heroes VI in its following sets, all numbering down through the exact order but the numbering setting was eventually subsided by the fans yet referenced for the series's New Game Plus system.

Development and PopularityEdit

The series franchise grew in popularity since the first release of Trails in the Sky, by Nihon Falcom Corporation, developer of the Ys series. The series fast forwards to a whole new world with its modern political landscape where different events crossover from the games foretelling the core of the world. Unlike the Gagharv Trilogy unfolding its story through separate games, each Trails game links to the next sequel while interconnecting through the series's modern events solving suspenseful mysteries left at each game's cliffhanger.

Through the marketing line, the Trails games evolved to be played on a variety of consoles, eventually evolving for its own remake for the developed PS Consoles (VITA, PS4, etc.). Nevertheless, all the games branch from the same unique RPG infrastructure with different mechanics per "chapter" series. The more while played and reading the story's relevance and suspenseful twists, the more enjoyable until the subsequent release while replaying through new difficulty levels.

Currently, XSEED Games gained the official localization rights to translate the Trails games for their dubbed release in America.
