Nihon Falcom president, Toshihiro Kondo, was interviewed by Japanese gaming publication Famitsu about the company’s plans for the future along with updates on some of their projects. During the interview Mr. Kondo said that they are looking to port some of their other game series to the Nintendo Switch family of systems such as the Trails series which he said aren’t represented on the Nintendo Switch platform as well as the recent The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki. Here’s a snippet from the Famitsu interview below.

Famitsu: How has the response been for Nihon Falcom titles that have been licensed to other companies?

Toshihiro Kondo: In the past, we received a lot of comments from fans telling us “Nihon Falcom should release this themselves”; likely due to some small changes or issues here and there in the end products. Recently, I’d like to think that because of the hard work and care that’s been put into these projects, that these complaints have subsided. However, I can’t deny that we can feel a sense of safety in handling these releases ourselves, and there’s a merit in the flexibility that’s afforded from being able to more directly put our ideas into motion. I’d like for players to expect something along those lines for the titles we plan to port in the future. When we think of other titles we can port, I begin to wonder if we might be able to release some of our classic titles that would otherwise be difficult to justify a physical release for, digitally.

Famitsu: So beyond the current project (The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails), Nihon Falcom plans to continue releasing games for Nintendo Switch?

Kondo: That’s the plan, and we even have already decided on titles we want to release next. I can’t specify exactly which ones at the current time, but we believe our fans on Switch have a lot to look forward to.

Famitsu: Are there any plans to port the latest Trails title, Kuro no Kiseki, to Nintendo Switch?

Kondo: In addition to Kuro no Kiseki, we’re currently testing out the feasibility of porting the other entries in the Trails series that aren’t represented on the platform to Nintendo Switch. At the same time, we’re evaluating to the degree we might be able to have further entries in the series developed for the hardware. Of course, these discussions aren’t just limited to Trails, and we’re also considering the possibility of releasing our other franchises on the platform.

  1. Would love to see the classic Legend of Heroes games from the 90s/2000s rereleased on the switch. The PSP games were classics.
