Frequently Asked Questions

Trails from Zero

Is this patch free?

Yes. This patch is a fan localization based on the Japanese release of the PC version of Zero no Kiseki. Please support the official release.

Where can I buy Trails from Zero? Which one is the digital version?

Physical versions of the game are available on falcom.shop or amazon.co.jp.

You can buy the digital version on dlsite.com. Details on how to purchase from dlsite.com can be found here.

Is this an official release?

No. This project is entirely free and unlicensed. The aim of the patch was to fill the gap left in the official releases of the series so that fans could experience the game as intended.

Will this patch be coming to Steam/EGS/Console?

No. That is beyond the scope of this group’s project.

Will this work on PSP?

No. The installer/launcher is set up specifically for the Japanese PC release of Trails from Zero / Zero no Kiseki.

We did talk about attempting to push this for the PSP version, but in order to get it out sooner rather than later, the team opted for the PC release first. Unfortunately, as we are having issues with the tools that we have available as a team, we can’t discuss the progress or possibility of a PSP release of this patch at this time.

Does Trails from Zero have full voice acting?

It does not. There are means to acquire main scenario voice acting, but we cannot provide any information on how to do so due to copyright concerns.

but if you do have them, they go under <game folder>\data\talk\

Is there any way that I can donate / contribute to your group?

Although we thank you for your interest, as this is a non-profit fan work, our policy is not to accept any donations or incentives at this time.

If you really wish to donate to this cause, please support the official releases and buy either yourself or a friend a copy of one of the English released copies of the Trails games from either XSEED Games or NIS America. Here are some links:

Additionally, Falcom takes international orders on their online store. Of course, you can buy Zero no Kiseki for PC itself from falcom.shop, amazon.co.jp, or dlsite.com.

….or buy yourself a really awesome Mishy t-shirt from the NIS America store.

Will you be working on Trails to Azure?

Yes! Check out our announcement post here.

Will you work on other projects?

Yes, but we have no details to announce at this time.
