    The Legend of Heroes: Trails From Zero Review

    It wasn't that long ago since I played my first Legend of Heroes game: Trails of Cold Steel IV. From there, I wasn't sure where to go with the series. Do I go back and play the third game in the Cold Steel series? (the only one available on the Switch), or do I wait for Trails From Zero, the first game in the Crossbell arc, which has had a complicated history of its own before finally being released in with English subtitles? Luckily, I didn't have to make that choice, as NIS America was kind enough to provide me with my very own review copy.

    Story
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails From Zero follows three months after the final game in the Trails in the Sky trilogy and follows Llyod Bannings, a rookie police detective and the appointed leader of the newly formed SSS (Special Support Section) of the CPD (Crossbell Police Department). Along with three other new recruits, Llyod and his team are put in charge of renewing the police department's reputation, which has been lost due to the local guild showing them up and doing a better job of handling monsters and more.

    While the SSS may seem like any other guild doing odd jobs here and there to up the CPD's reputation. It isn't long until Llyod, and his team finds themselves in the middle of a war between two crime syndicates fighting for control of Crossbell.

    Conclusion

    I know this might be controversial to say, but I almost want to say that I prefer Trails From Zero more than Cold Steel IV. While Cold Steel IV is the better game in most aspects, Trails From Zero is more accessible to new players. Whether that is from the grounded story, which is the beginning of something bigger of the tight-knit team that we grow to love or the ability to speed up the gameplay, it is all here.

    Trails From Zero shows that even an old game can feel new and rewarding even if most gamers have only experienced the later games in the series. If you are looking to start The Legend of Heroes games, I would highly recommend starting here and working your way forward.
