So, I may/may not be burned at the stake for this, but I'm a Falcom-nooblet. Ys: OiF on Steam, of all things, was the first time I was exposed to the general glory that is Nihon Falcom products. So, I'm getting into these series KINDA late. And I just had one question regarding the continuity for the Kiseki series specifically...
Just what ARE Zero and Ao no Kiseki? XD It's so silly, but my knowledge gleaned from some searches basically extends to "Yep, they're in the series. Yep, PSP and some PC ports, Zero's was a disaster." I figured I'd get the best responses from series fans. :> I get that FC-SC-TC are all direct-ish sequels to one another [correct me if I'm wrong], but where do Zero and Ao fall in the continuity? Spinoffs, like Nayuta? Do they play different [like how Nayuta seems to be Ys-style action with an expansive Trails story]?
Though it'll be a LONG time before these are out there in English, I'm just curious, as I just LOVE amassing a large knowledge of general game trivia [I swear this will help me on a game show one day! ;p] and I really have no idea. xD Plus, we may always see the series come to Steam someday...right? ;D
tl;dr: What are Zero/Ao no Kiseki like, how do I Nihon Falcom!?
