Historically speaking, I’m someone who has long turned my nose up at the industry practice of repackaging something old and passing it off as new. In my mind, the best games have always been transformative experiences that focus on innovating – whether via a new IP in a familiar genre, or an established franchise being taken in an unexpected direction (or, heaven forbid, something new entirely). Even before remakes became the game industry’s golden goose, the deluge of seen-it-before sequels and risk averse, rinse and repeat game design had me reasonably fatigued with the state of things. When I consider the games I have enjoyed the most over the last few months then, I’m scratching my head – because they’re all remakes.

As a follow-up to The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero, this entry ties up the ends to the Crossbell arc, which is lauded by some as the absolute pinnacle of the series as a whole. Taking a look now, how does Trails to Azure stack up?

Only a few months after the debut of Bayonetta 3 – which released five years after it was announced – the series just saw the launch of another title with Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. It sounds like we could be seeing this sort of thing in the future – especially if series creator and Bayonetta Origins writer Hideki Kamiya has his way.
