The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki promises the start of a brand new chapter in Zemuria but that doesn’t mean heroes from previous entries won’t be appearing. As teased in the last trailer, Zin Vathek from The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and Fie Claussel from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will be in the game. Falcom has released new details and screenshots for the same (which Gematsu has collected).
Known for his powerful martial arts and immense size, Zin leads the Calvard Bracer Guild. He’s now semi S-rank and watches over junior bracer Elaine (more details on her here). As a B-rank bracer with the Imperial Bracer Guild, Fie travels to Calvard to help with the number of issues cropping up in Calvard. She also has a lot of interactions with Elaine but when it comes to battle, her prowess as a Jaeger shines through.
Most interesting is new character Shizuna Rem Misurugi. As a lieutenant in the samurai group Ikaruga, she’s the “Divine Blade of Silver” and wields a black odachi. Though her style is similar to Eight Leaves One Blade (which Rean Schwarzer, Anelace Elfead and Cassius Bright use), some differences are teased. What role she’ll play in the journey of Van and Agnes remains to be seen.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is out on September 30th for the PS4 in Japan. It will also be coming to PS5 later.
