Trails from Zero: 70%

Post Music:

Hey, everyone! As you’re well aware, this marks another ten percent done in the first editing pass of Trails from Zero. However, this progress report is a bit more special than the others. Zero’s script is split up into four spreadsheets, and, now, we’ve managed to complete three out of the four. That’s pretty insane. Everything outside of Crossbell City has been edited, which just blows my mind.


I guess there’s not too much to fill you guys in on with this update. Ribose has started to look into non-dialogue text, such as NPC names, map labels, arts, crafts, and everything else under the sun. Jose was quickly able to insert that text into the game, and it looks fantastic so far!

Now that we’ve started this part of the patch, we decided to throw something together for you fine folks. Here’s a little demo video of Trails from Zero, showing the Special Support Section’s journey to Armorica Village!

Remember, things are still prone to change! This is more of a, “Hey! Look at all this good English text in game!”

Until next time, everyone!

  1. This is looking fantastic. Brings a tear to my eye to see that you guys are almost done with the localization. Keep up the good work guys.

  2. THANK YOU! I know this is a tremendously difficult localization with one of the longest game scripts known to man, so the fact that your team is still persevering and making tangible progress is something to be CELEBRATED! Thank you so much for being so awesome!

  3. Woohoo!! Another 10% Milestone ! I’m pretty pumped for 80% now! XD
    With how things are going i’m guesstimating its going to be fully completed by late 2018 or early 2019!

  7. Sorry to take to long to log in and THANK YOU ALL!!!!!

    I could have been first comment, but found I had been logged out, and didn’t have time to BS around and try to remember my password.

    Seriously, man, I want this game SO BAD. I’m going to buy myself a J-Copy of Zero this very day, and prepare to be engulfed.

    One question: Why mouse control in the demo vid? I’m like “Eeeew, Mouse.” Controller is better, hands down.

  8. Ah. Kind of like when I want to make myself some kind of hot meal for dinner, but I’m already sitting down at the computer, and hey look, here’s a bag of Milano Cookies, oh well. Understood, then.

  9. Excellent work, this patch looks absolutely amazing. I’m a new fan of the series I’ve only played the steam releases of Cold Steel but I’m already really looking forward for this.

    Since I want to be ready for when the patch is released, is there any way of legally purchasing a digital copy of the JP game? I’m ok with supporting Falcom, they deserve it for creating such a great universe but i don’t really want to spend a fortune in shipping costs.

  10. I can’t wait for this, already replayed the series in preparation for all these new characters.

    If I may ask… Once the editing is over is the work basically over? Is the patch sent out at that point?

    1. We’ll definitely be going through a period of QA, fixing things we missed and fine tuning things. We want the patch to be as good as it can possibly be.

  11. Hi!

    I’ve been checking out the translation effort for sometime now. I just want to ask if you will be needing testers once the patch reaches beta?

    I’d be willing to lend a hand with that. Cheers!

  12. Hi there! I’m a fan of kiseki series from Brazil and I’m playing the english beta PC version that’s been around. I want to know if I may still use the save data from my currently version in this geofront version, I ‘ll be possible?

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    1. Sorry for the delayed response.

      We haven’t changed the save format itself, but it’s still a possibility that “chapter clear saves” won’t work as intended due to scenario changes. It should be possible to use existing saves, and we hope it can be in all cases. We’ll be able to test this in time.
