Today Nihon Falcom released a large gallery of screenshots and details of its upcoming Trails JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki.
First of all, we take a look at many returning characters from previous games of the series including Fie Claussell, Emma Millstein, Gaius Worzel, Millium Orion, Roselia, Fran Seeker, Celine, and a much grown-up Shizuku Maclaine.
A new character, code-named “Emperor” also appears. He’s an executive of an organization that uses its members as tools. His ruthless personality brings him to condemn deserters to be executed.
He wears a set of golden artifacts that give him the power to control gravity to crush his foes and he is currently tracking two members of the organization who are on the run.
We also get to see a new episode unlocked in the New Reverie Corridor focused on Freddy.
Last, but not least, the “Beach DE Vacation” lets you bring together the old and new members of Class VII to the beach enjoying various minigames like watermelon splitting and banana boating.
There will also be “communication events” letting you have a conversation with party members to deepen your bonds with them. Moving the camera may change the conversation topic, and reaching a certain level of affection can unlock a special event that will make the relationship even closer.
These events will support PlayStation VR with a post-launch patch.
Initially, you have a limited number of tickets to access the beach, but you can unlock more in the New Reverie Corridor.
You can check out all the screenshots below. Incidentally, if you want to get into the series, you can still take part in our The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III giveaway.
The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki will be released in Japan, Korea, and Asia for PS4 on August 27. Recently we learned that it’ll include PlayStation VR support with a post-launch update.
At the moment there is no information on when the game will release in the west, especially considering that the previous title of the franchise, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, hasn’t been released yet and won’t come before the end of October.
If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the previous trailer, the latest screenshots, the previous gallery, another one, more images, 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.
