Nihon Falcom says Trails title sales exceed expectations in the West, Ys sales remain strong
No trails of tears here
It looks like Nihon Falcom has a lot to celebrate, as two of their big franchises continue to bring sizable numbers for the studio.
The developer behind the Trails and Ys franchises has shared an update on how these games are doing in the West, and it appears both are finding fans with ease.
“Sales of the Ys and Trails series in North America, Europe, and Asia remained strong. In addition, sales of the English versions of Trails from Zero (released in September 2022) and Trails to Azure (released in March 2023) exceeded expectations. As a result, net sales, operating income, ordinary income, and net income for the first half of the current fiscal year exceeded the previously announced figures, respectively.”
Nihon Falcom really hadn’t done much with Nintendo until the Switch came around, and now they’re seeing success with support for Nintendo’s platform. Let’s hope this means the company will consider Nintendo fans with all releases going forward!
