After the success of the ''Trails in the Sky'' trilogy and the ''Trails of Zero/in the Azure'' duology, Creator/{{Falcom}} took a little detour and came out with ''Nayuta no Kiseki'' (那由多の軌跡 - literal translation: "Nayuta's taken path"): a "story ARPG" taking the characterization of the Kiseki series and combining it with the fast-paced action of their ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' and Zwei games. In order to make the barrier to entry easier for newcomers, Nayuta has no direct story associations with the other games, although it shares some concepts and terminology.

The Sciencia Sea, a vast ocean dotted with countless tiny islands, is notable for two different peculiar phenomena: "star fragments" which contain images of a beautiful alien world (animals, plants, and rarely buildings no one's ever seen), and "falling ruins" in which ancient buildings fall out of a clear blue sky onto people's heads. (No, really.) Both phenomena are concentrated around Remnant Isle, a tiny settlement built on top of many of these ruins. Nayuta Herschel, student and amateur astronomer, and Signa Alhazen, master swordsman and Nayuta's best friend, are returning to Remnant Isle for a relaxing summer vacation when the biggest ruin yet falls out of the sky.

Nayuta and Signa naturally go check it out and meet Noi, a tiny visitor from another world. Soon enough they meet Creha, a mysterious silver-haired girl sleeping in a coffin-like bed of flowers, and from there Nayuta is plunged into an adventure beyond his greatest imagination.

Like in the other Kiseki games, story progression is punctuated by subquests in which you help the inhabitants of your hometown and in so doing learn more about them and their world. Features one of Falcom Sound Team JDK's best scores yet and an unexpectedly heartwarming story, even for Kiseki.
----
!!Nayuta no Kiseki contains the following tropes:

* ArtShift: Unlike the main series, Nayuta no Kiseki features 3D models instead of sprites, making it look closer to Zwei.
* AloofBigBrother: Signa fits this trope to a T. [[spoiler:Both metaphorically (to Nayuta) and literally (to Creha).]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassGrandpa: Orbus
** BadassAdorable: Noi may be tiny, but don't underestimate her spells. Also, Nayuta is short, nerdy, polite and a {{determinator}} trained by one of the best swordsmen in the world.
** BadassBookworm: Nayuta
** LittleMissBadass: Noi
* {{BFS}}: one of the weapon type Nayuta can choose. Selam also sports one, a cool-looking one to boot.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The opening movie is one of the most misleading opening in Kiseki series. Particularly when it comes to [[spoiler:Signa's fate and his relationship with Selam]].
* CannotSpitItOut: Lyra has a crush on Nayuta. But every time she wants to confess, Noi always comes in. Even when Noi wasn't around, Lyra was always too afraid to confess.
* EasterEgg: There are several references to the Zemuria games, but the most notable and least spoilery is the presence of Misshy.
* ElegantGothicLolita: You can buy a cute gothic dress for Noi to equip.
* ElementalPowers: Depending on the season.
** Spring: PetalPower
** Summer: BlowYouAway[=/=]ShockAndAwe
** Autumn: GreenThumb[=/=]PlayingWithFire
** Winter: AnIcePerson
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: the Continent of Origins, La Worg.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Gear Drive
* {{Expy}}
** Nayuta looks a bit like Forte, fellow main character from ''The Legend of Heroes V: Song of the Ocean''.
** Lyra also looks like Una from the same game. Both even have "CannotSpitItOut" issues with the main characters.
** Creha is a mix between [[spoiler:Arianrhod]] and Moonlight Witch Gueld.
* FlatWorld: All the best scholars in the Sciencia Sea believe the world is flat, and moreover, that it's very small. Nayuta disagrees and sets out to prove them wrong.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: It's a Kiseki game. It's bound to happen.
* FromBadToWorse: Everything simply started with Nayuta and Signa climbing the fallen ruins out of pure curiosity. Then stuf happened...
* GenreShift: From story-oriented, tactics-flavored JRPG to fast-paced ARPG with platforming (still story-oriented, though).
* GirlishPigtails: Noi and Sasha.
* GirlInABox: Nayuta first meets Creha sleeping in what looks like a coffin.
* HumansAreBastards: or so what [[spoiler:Creha and Selam thought when their race was brutally mass murdered]].
* [[spoiler:IChooseToStay: Creha, Signa, and Noi all choose to stay on Remnant Isle in the ending.]]
* [[spoiler:IKnowYourTrueName: Zext tried to do this on Noi to persuade her to cooperate with him. It failed.]]
* InterfaceSpoiler: Averted with Selam, because his voice actor wasn't revealed until the game's released. [[spoiler:And one reason how almost no one could guess that Selam and Signa are the same person.]]
* [[spoiler:LastOfTheirKind: Creha and Signa/Selam are the only survivors of a powerful race called "People of Mithos".]]
* [[spoiler:LiteralSplitPersonality: Signa and Selam are originally just one person called "Selam".]]
* LostWorld: Lost Heaven, the beautiful paradise seen in star fragments, contains species not extant on the Sciencia Sea. [[spoiler:It's revealed that Lost Heaven/Terra is literally a LostWorld because it got lost in an explosion 1579 years ago.]]
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather: invoked by Zext to Creha in the end of Chapter 4.]]
* MasterComputer: the Astrolabe
* MacGuffin: The Master Gears. And later, [[spoiler:the Stella Gears.]]
** LivingMacGuffin: Creha, Creha, CREHA. [[spoiler:Signa/Selam becomes one in the epilogue as well.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Cealam and Colon. Noi can equip glasses as accessory, though.
* MeaningfulName: To fit the "star" theme, nearly all the characters are named after various constellations or famous astronomers. And yes, including the {{NPC}}. For example, Nayuta is a Hindu number meaning 10 to the power of 60 (or 72, depending), or just a very large number, fitting for the sea of stars.
** StellarThemeNaming
* MistakenForSubculture: Nayuta can buy doll clothes for Noi at the general store. The saleswoman promptly assumes he loves dolls and is overjoyed to have someone share her hobby.
* MsFanservice: Eida and Erislette.
* NamesToKnowInAnime
** KaoriMizuhashi as Nayuta
** Creator/AiKayano as Noi
** KenichiSuzumura as Signa[[spoiler:/Selam]]
** AyanaTaketatsu as Creha
** RyouHirohashi as Lyra
** RyotaroOkiayu as Zext and Guardian King Algol
** HoukoKuwashima as Eartha
** HirokiTochi as Orbus
** MiyukiSawashiro as Song Priestess Erislette
* NiceHat: Sasha. Creha has it too, only in [[spoiler:her Enforcer of Mithos outfit.]] One of Noi's accessories is a wizard's cap.
* OneWingedAngel: one of the gimmicks of the bosses of this game is that they have multiple forms. [[spoiler:Creha and Signa/Selam are literally one thanks to their father.]]
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Noi isn't technically a fairy, but is referred to as such just because it's easier. Averted with the low-level spirits that hang around the shrines.
* [[spoiler:[[Really700YearsOld Really 1580 Years Old]]: Creha, Signa/Selam, Zext, Noi... pretty much everyone who lives on Terra.]]
* RedBaron: Each of Terra's continental managers has one.
** Guardian King Algol, governing the continent of Heinmel.
** Lynchis Gio, governing the continent of Oltapia.
** Song Priestess Erislette, governing the continent of Rizweld.
** Sage Nemeas, governing the continent of La Worg.
** [[spoiler:Noi Stelladier, administrator of Astrolabe and governor of Terra.]]
* RelationshipVoiceActor
** [[KenichiSuzumura Signa]], [[RyouHirohashi Lyra]] and [[KaoriMizuhashi Nayuta]] were previously [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Senel, Shirley, and Norma, respectively]].
** [[KenichiSuzumura Signa]] and [[Creator/AiKayano Noi]], likewise, were previously [[Anime/AquarionEvol Cayenne and Mikono Suzushiro, respectively]]. [[spoiler:And like the Suzushiros, they are also technically siblings.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: You fight cute monsters with big smiles and flowers growing out of their heads.
* SayMyName: "Creha!", [[spoiler:"Signa!"]], and "Noi!" make up 80% of Nayuta's speech during the last few chapters. [[spoiler:Taken to its logical extreme before Nayuta fights Noi's nightmare.]]
* ShoutOut
** World building-wise, this game is an intentional ShoutOut to the Gagharv trilogy, especially ''The Legend of Heroes V: Song of the Ocean'', if [[WordOfGod the latest Falcom interview]] is to be believed.
** One of the greatswords Nayuta can get looks like [[VideoGame/{{Ys}} Tovah's heirloom]].
* [[spoiler:SiblingYinYang: it's hard to believe that Creha and Signa/Selam are siblings, eh?]]
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Probably the happiest game to ever carry the Kiseki name.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Signa or Cygna? Worlance or Volans?
* [[spoiler:TakenForGranite: Signa/Selam and Creha became petrified when Zext took their power in the Final Chapter. Fortunately, it didn't last long.]]
* [[spoiler:ThatsNoMoon: the second moon. You know, the big one? That's actually Lost Heaven. Or rather, Terra, an artificial satellite containing plant and animal species wiped out in a disaster 1579 years ago.]]
* TheDragon: The masked swordsman Selam fulfills this role for Zext.
* TimeSkip: one year between [[spoiler:Final Chapter and After Story.]]
* TokenMiniMoe: Noi, owing to her sheer small size.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:Zext]] owned a Star Fragment with an image of [[spoiler:Selam, Creha, and himself, all looking happy]].
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler:Poor Lyra...]]
* VerbalTic: Noi ends all of her sentences with "na no!"
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Eartha was supposed to be Nayuta's mother.
* WholePlotReference: [[spoiler:the story behind Signa and Selam's separation? [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Seems familiar...]].]]

After the success of the Trails in the Sky trilogy and the Trails of Zero/Trails in the Azure duology, NihonFalcom veered off course and came out with Nayuta: a "story ARPG" taking the characterization of the Kiseki series and combining it with the fast-paced action of their ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' and Zwei games. In order to make the barrier to entry easier for newcomers, Nayuta has no direct story associations with the other games, although it shares some concepts and terminology.

The Sciencia Sea, a vast ocean dotted with countless tiny islands, is notable for two different peculiar phenomena: "star fragments" which contain images of a beautiful alien world (animals, plants, and rarely buildings no one's ever seen), and "falling ruins" in which ancient buildings fall out of a clear blue sky onto people's heads. (No really.) Both these phenomena are concentrated around Remnant Isle, a tiny settlement built on top of many of these ruins. As our game begins, Nayuta Herschel, student and amateur astronomer, and Signa Alhazen, master swordsman and Nayuta's best friend, are returning to Remnant Isle for a relaxing summer vacation when the biggest ruin yet falls out of the sky.

Nayuta and Signa naturally go check it out and meet Noi, a tiny visitor from another world.
