Today Nihon Falcom released a new gallery of screenshots of its upcoming Trails JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki.
We get to meet three characters who will make an appearance in the game, starting with the return of Cao Lee, the leader of the criminal syndicate Heiyue.
He’s a 29-year old man who always appear to consider profit a priority but also values relationships and connections. He’s a martial arts master and a very clever individual.
Next is Kurogane, the second in command of Ikaruga and attendant to Shizuna, whom he calls “Princess.” As a ninja from the far east, he has the aura of a veteran soldier who survived countless battles.
He has a superhuman body and physical skills paired with exceptional ninja arts, and can be compared with the enforces of Ouroboros.
Last, but not least, the Phantom Thief Grimcat, who has been haunting Calvard in the past few years. She steals from corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, as well as large corporations and criminal syndicates that make money via illegal means.
No one knows who she is, and rumors about her have spread through the Republic like wildfire.
You can check out all the screenshots below.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is the next game of the Trails series. It’ll release in Japan on September 30, 2021, for PS4. At the moment, no additional platforms have been hinted at, even if Trails games do tend to get ports down the line.
You can also check out the first screenshots and more details, the second gallery, a third, a fourth, a fifth, a sixth, the first gameplay, more footage, even more gameplay, the previous trailer, the latest gameplay, and even more screenshots.
At the moment, The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki has not been announced for the west. Recently, NIS America revealed plans to localize The Legend of Heroes Trails From Zero, The Legend of Heroes Trails to Azure, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails Into Reverie for PS4, Switch, and PC all the way into 2023.
While this means that we’re going to finally be able to experience some relevant missing chapters of the franchise, it also means that we likely have a long wait ahead of us before we can get our hands on Kuro no Kiseki in English.
