Today Nihon Falcom released a new gallery of screenshots of its upcoming Trails JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki.
We get the introduction of four more characters. Renne Bright returns as a foreign student enrolled at the prestigious Aramis Academy. She is the inflexible student council president that understands every situation and can solve every problem. She is friends with Agnes, but it appears that her reason for coming to the Republic of Calvard wasn’t simplòy to go to school.
Yin always has her face covered by a mask and fights with a massive sword. She used to be active in the republic, but she moved to Crossbell a few years ago. Yet, she has returned to contain the damage caused by the mafia organization “Armata.” I’m quite sure I don’t need to tell most of you who she actually is.
Ellroy Harwood, also known as Oathbreaker, Anguis IV of Ouroboros, also returns. He’s a specialist who has studied and practiced all kinds of crimes. Apparently, the organization’s plans are behind his arrival in the Republic of Calvard.
Jerald Dantes is the boss of Armata. He has a disturbing aura and the impenetrable demeanor of a man that can take on anyone. A few years ago, he ousted the previous boss and took his position. He believes in the concept of controlling everything through fear.
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 latest trailer, the latest gameplay, and even more screenshots, another gallery, and the latest.
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.
