Development[]

The development of Trails from Zero's sequel was announced under the name of Ao no Kiseki on March 24, 2011 along with its release date, September 29, 2011. They also released a teaser trailer.[1]

Falcom decided on the kanji ao (碧) because it represents an unfathomable colour that occurs when you reach a certain depth under water and you look up at the surface, you can no longer distinguish blue from green; or a stone with compound colours and an infinite sense of depth that is both highly transparent and clear.[2]

Trivia[]

Trails to Azure in memory of Scott Tijerina
Trails to Azure Scott's Chest Message
  • In the English version of the game, a tribute to Daniel Scott Tijerina (also known as KillScottKill) was made in the credits as well as keeping one of his messages in a treasure chest in the final dungeon. Tijerina was the lead editor for the Geofront who helped supply fan translations for Trails from Zero and Trails to Azure in 2020 and 2021 respectively, before the official localisation by NIS America in 2022 and 2023. His death was first announced on 10th October 2022[3] and confirmed by his sister on 11th October 2022.[4] The message was originally in the Geofront version of Trails to Azure but was kept in the official version to pay respects.
