The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki Opening Movie Released
Ahead of its Japanese release at the end of this month, Nihon Falcom released the opening movie to The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki. The two-minute video shows various important and supporting characters — including some returning faces — appearing in the game, which takes the series to the Republic of Calvard for the first time.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki takes place a year after the events of the previous title, Trails into Reverie, and two years after the events of Trails of Cold Steel III and Trails of Cold Steel IV. The game is set in the diverse Calvard Republic, the eastern neighbour and superpower rival to the Erebonian Empire that was the setting for the Trails of Cold Steel subseries. Kuro no Kiseki is set to be released for PlayStation 4 in Japan on September 30, 2021. A western release has not been announced, though NIS America has announced western releases for previous titles in the series.
