Title says it all; check out Nayuta no Kiseki‘s official site here. While gameplay details are sparse, the story reportedly centers around the island of Nokosare Shima (“Left Behind Island,” apparently). Shooting stars and odd ruins have fallen from the skies around the island, with particularly strange stones, called Star Fragments, tantalizing those who find them with visions of another world.
You play one of the curious locals – the star-gazing, 15-year-old Nayuta – as he and his pal Signa investigate the ruins. Naturally there’s a mysterious girl involved, named Noi, though it’s not yet clear how their paths intersect.
Via Famitsu, a release date for Legend of Heroes: Nayuta no Kiseki has been announced as July 26.
Takayuki Hatano, lead developer for the iOS version of Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, spoke about the project in a recent interview with Famitsu. Intending to go further than a simple port, Hatano explained the iOS version will feature a revised interface to make the game more playable via touchscreen. Graphical updates are also in progress, and the team is reportedly looking into social elements for gameplay: item bonuses or support for special attacks with nearby friends, for instance.
A release timeframe was not given, though Hatano did say that releasing the game this year may be challenging. He added that Falcom is “telling them to take their time to make a quality game.”
The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution, the PS Vita redux of Zero no Kiseki, has been given a release window of August. An exact date was not specified.
With another entry in the Kiseki series (a Legend of Heroes spinoff) already in development, Falcom CEO Toshihiro Kondo announced that still another Kiseki title is also in the works. The upcoming title, Nayuta no Kiseki, is currently being developed for the PSP, and Kondo indicated a Vita version of Zero no Kiseki will follow.
The latter, under the full title of Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution, will feature full voice acting, additional minigames, animated character shots for conversations, and various new visual effects. Evolution is expected to release sometime this summer for ¥6,090.
Developer Falcom has announced that a downloadable version of Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki will launch alongside retail copies on September 29. Digital copies will be priced at ¥5200, slightly cheaper than the ¥6090 for retail.
Strong sales and preorders for the Legend of Heroes series have prompted developer Nihon Falcom to raise its yearly earnings forecasts. Two titles in particular – Zero no Kiseki and the upcoming Ao no Kiseki – were cited for the change, and for the period of October 2010 to September 2011 the company now expects net earnings of 125 million yen, up from previous estimates of 75 million.
