The Legend of Heroes Crossbell Saga Japanese PS4 Release Dates Revealed
Nihon Falcom has announced the Japanese release dates for The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Kai and The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki Kai. Zero no Kiseki Kai will launch on April 23, 2020, with Ao no Kiseki Kai following on May 28, 2020. The games, known as the Crossbell Saga, are enhanced remasters of the two titles originally released for PlayStation Portable in Japan in 2010, before later getting PlayStation Vita versions that added voice acting. The Crossbell Saga takes place around the same time as Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II and focuses on the city of Crossbell, which is located between Zemuria’s two superpowers.
Nihon Falcom also confirmed some of the new features coming in the PlayStation 4 versions of the games. The games will be fully voiced and include a high-speed mode that was added to the Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II PlayStation 4 releases alongside other graphical, audio, and UI enhancements. There will be save game compatibility with the upcoming The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki that will provide an in-game bonus for Hajimari no Kiseki if save data is dedicated for either Zero no Kiseki Kai or Ao no Kiseki Kai. In addition, certain characters who appear in the Cold Steel subseries and have connections to Crossbell but who did not appear in the original versions of the Crossbell Saga will appear in the PlayStation 4 versions, with Trails of Cold Steel III’s Juna Crawford confirmed as one of them.
