Today Nihon Falcom released a new batch of screenshots and artwork of the upcoming JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari No Kiseki, the next game of the Trails series.
First of all, we learn that those who have a save game on their PS4 for the previous games of the series will unlock bonuses in Hajimari no Kiseki.
Eligible saves are from The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Kai, Ao no Kiseki Kai, Trails of Cold Steel III, and Trails of Cold Steel IV.
Simply having any save data on your console will unlock different bonuses (up to six different sets of items depending on what you have). On top of that, having a save in which you cleared Trails of Cold Steel IV will unlock up to four bonuses depending on what you achieved in the game.
We also get to see a few characters, most of which will prove familiar among fans of the franchise including Zero no Kiseki, Ao no Kiseki, Trails of Cold Steel, and more.
These are Arios Maclaine, Rixia Mao, Zeit, Ilya Platiere, Mateus and Orie Vander (Kurt’s father and mother), and F. Novartis.
You can check out the screenshots below.
If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first trailer, another gallery of screenshots featuring Lloyd Bannings and his friends and companions from Zero and Ao no Kiseki, more focusing on Rean Schwarzer and the other veterans of Class VII from Thors Military Academy, and a batch focusing on the cast for the third route.
No western release has been mentioned so far for the game, but that’s not surprising considering the previous game of the franchise, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, hasn’t been released yet.
A few weeks ago we also learned that the Trails series has shipped over 4.5 million copies.
