Hello, everyone! I’m quite sure that everyone is every bit as hyped for Trails from Zero to be released — which is happening sooner than you all may expect… but if you have not had the opportunity to read it yet, allow me to point you in the direction of what Falcom released as the official pre-story to Trails from Zero before it originally released in Japan back in 2010.
The short comic known as Ring of Judgment was released successively over a series of months in the manga magazine known as Dengeki Maoh. The final chapter of Ring of Judgment was even released in an issue that came out mere days before the actual release of the game.
Since then, Ring of Judgment has seen a drama CD and has even had new artwork by Kitsutsuki, to be part of one of the Kai releases many preorder bonuses.
If you would like to read this short story, it has already been fully translated on Endless History, and you can find it for download here.
This particular comic is a fun way to remember Falcom’s tradition of leading up to their games or setting up bonus information before the start of a game in the form of a different medium.
