The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero PC Update Adds Auto Text Advance, Console Updates Coming Soon

    New features and quality of life improvements in Crossbell.

    NIS America and developer Durante announced a new update is available now for the PC (Steam) version of Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero. New updates are coming to the existing console versions soon.

    The new PC update for The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero adds the auto text advance feature, water rendering, and achievement triggers on loading saves. Additionally, a number of bug fixes, English localization fixes, and additional changes were applied.

    According to NIS America, more updates are coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions. Specific details were not shared, however. Fortunately, a new update for The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero on consoles will likely have many valuable fixes found in the latest Steam version.

    Patch notes are available below via Steam:

    Major New Features
    • Water rendering update: water now optionally uses a pixel shader which distorts the reflections/refractions. We tuned this for most bodies of water in the game and it looks pretty neat.
    • Added an “Auto Text Advance” feature. Note that there are a few events in-game where this will not apply since they require manual advance.
    • Check and trigger achievements on loading saves. This means that if you e.g. import a save from a playthrough of a different version of the game, applicable achievements will now trigger. (Note: this mostly applies to collection-type achievements)
    Major Bug Fixes
    • Resolved an issue which could cause portraits not to be displayed in very specific circumstances. More details about the cause of this issue are available here.
    • Implement a number of English localization fixes.
    Additional Changes and Fixes
    • Improve font rendering performance by avoiding unneeded copies and temporary textures. This might be noticeable on slower systems when a lot of text is displayed.
    • Map geometry fixes on many maps, and some map collision fixes. Some of these are specific to ultra-wide monitors, but others are visible in 16:9 as well.
    • Show correct button prompt in detective notebook for “Details”.
    • Add mouse support for the casino exchange menu.
    • Made direct camp menu save button prompt clickable.
    • Check whether detective rank is in a valid range when loading saves.
    • Fixed crash when failing to delete saves.
    • Allow cancellation of dialogs in the settings menu with the back button.
    • Always apply framerate limit, even when vsync is enabled (or forced off). This is to prevent issues when V-sync is off globally.
    • Fixed an issue where battle character outlines could flicker with high FPS.

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam worldwide.
