More 'The Legend of Heroes' games could be coming to Switch based on Falcom's 'PS4 first, Switch later' release strategy

How long do we have to wait?

Thanks to a translated comment by NintendoSoup from a recent Falcom investors Q&A session, we can expect more Nintendo Switch releases from The Legend of Heroes series. According to the company president, Toshihiro Kondo, Falcom always focuses on Playstation 4 first, and then releases a Switch version later. Perhaps we could see a release of Hajimari no Kiseki on Switch in the near future.

“The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki will be released in Summer 2020 for PlayStation 4. Up till now, our platform strategy for Japan is to focus on PlayStation. But we also have a strategy whereby we focus on PlayStation 4 first, and later Nintendo Switch. Sales (for Falcom’s Nintendo Switch titles) overseas have been increasing in the last few years, and we are well aware that many players want to play our games (such as those in The Legend of Heroes series) on ‘platforms other than PlayStation 4’."

Legend of Heroes franchise may head to 3DS

The following blurb is said to come from a seasonal company report on Falcom at Toyo Keizai's investor resources page...

"The Kiseki series has been limited to PSP, but starting next term it will be offered on 3DS and a variety of other targets." ("Kiseki" is the Japanese name for the line of Legend of Heroes games that includes Trails in the Sky).

As you may know, the series hasn't been on a Nintendo system thus far, but it seems that's going to change in the near future.
