Today is the scheduled release for the fan-made localization patch for the pc version of  Ao no Kiseki.   In the original order of release for kiseki (Trails) games, Ao / Azure comes right before Cold Steel 1. In terms of ingame timeline, Ao covers concurrent events that happen along with those of Cold Steel I and II.   If someone is going in with no series knowledge, I would at least recommend starting with Zero no Kiseki, for which a similar fan-made localization has been available for one year now.


I'm excited as this is one of my very favorite games.  I think I've done ~4 playthroughs, all with a past fan translation (for which I am very thankful).  But the patch releasing today will be much more polished.


Edit:  The release is now live here.

Though you linked it, I will mention that the Zero patch was updated with the release of the Ao patch. It changes a fair bit of names and what not to coincide with the NISA translation of Cold Steel IV.


I was planning on posting this, but you've been watching the info much more closely than I have it seems. I should finally dig into Zero/Ao now that both are complete with a decent translation.

It's because some Persona stuff showed up on a Denuvo DRM site. Also Atlus is doing some stuff during the soon upcoming PC Game Show this month and not listed through SEGA. The rumors I'm hearing is that they'll release on the day they're announced, which would be nice if true.


Also recommend CrossCode. If you hate puzzles, it can be a slog but it is otherwise a high quality indie game in my opinion. I assume that the console release this month (Next week I think?) will include the puzzle difficulty slider option to make it easier to complete puzzles that require a bit more precision/speed to properly complete. I know there were some puzzles towards the end of the game that required stupidly precise timing to complete it, which were the only real complaints I had about the game.
