Nihon Falcom has decided to release a port of fan-favourite game for Nintendo Switch, The Legend Of Nayuta: Boundless Trails in Japan, in what seems to be a refocus on their Trails series.
The Nihon Falcom Trails series is a JRPG series of either turn-based, or action based gameplay that tells many stories of fantastical lands that don’t necessarily need to be played in order of release, except The Legend of Heroes: The Trails Of Cold Steel and its three sequels. The Legend Of Nayuta: Boundless Trails follows this concept while adding a worthy title to the series.
While the JRPG was originally released on the PSP way back in 2012, a remastered PS4 version dropped back in Japan on December 10th of last year, and its release date for the Nintendo Switch port feels right around the corner.
The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails is an action RPG that has gameplay elements very similar to the other Falcom developed Ys series. The plot takes place in a world called Lost Heaven and begins when the titular character, Nayuta, is exploring a commonplace floating ruin. He comes into contact with the fairy, Noi (thankfully not Navi). In traditional JRPG fashion, a well-crafted world and character development are featured in a narrative that sees the ragtag band of heroes visits many worlds, and stop an evil plot.
