The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki – Farewell, O Zemuria Details Revealed

Nihon Falcom provided new details and images for its latest title in the Legend of Heroes series, The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki – Farewell, O Zemuria. The game is the twentieth anniversary title for the Kiseki/Trails series and is planned to release in Japan in 2024. Platforms have not been announced, though the screenshots and past history indicate at least a PlayStation console release.

The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki is set after the events of Trails through Daybreak (aka Kuro no Kiseki) and Kuro no Kiseki II -Crimson Sin-. Van Arkride, protagonist of the previous two titles, will return in the role for the game continuing his work as a Spriggan, effectively a private detective and mercenary. Van is joined by Agnes Claudel, a student who works part-time with Van, and Bergard Zeman, a former wandering priest and master of one of the three great martial art schools.



Kai no Kiseki’s story revolves around two major developments in the series and a fated prophesised date for the Zemurian continent. As the fated year approaches, the Republic of Calvard seeks to explore space by sending up an Orbal rocket. The launch is set to take place from Zech One Space Military Base in the southeast of the republic. Meanwhile, many forces and people from across Zemuria have been congregating at a location known as the Singularity, in the independent territory of Ored. On the northern border of Calvard, Ored has a warm climate and is covered in farmland, but has been undergoing massive development following investment of foreign capital. One of the beneficiaries has been the private military Marduk Company.

The game will feature the same hybrid combat as the previous two titles, which lets players switch seamlessly between the series’ traditional turn-based combat (command mode) and a real-time action system (field mode). Kai no Kiseki will introduce two additional elements: Awakenings and the B.L.T.Z. (Blitz) system. Awakenings allow certain characters in field mode, including Van, to enter a special Awakened states using the boost gauge that is filled during battles. This changes their physical appearance as they gain temporary additional fighting power.



Meanwhile, the B.L.T.Z. system allows players to obtain Blitz Bonuses during command mode. These then trigger Chain or Support reactions when players use regular attacks, Crafts, or Arts. Chains will see a partner character do a follow-up attack, while Supports will increase the effectiveness of the Craft or Art. Supports will increase the effectiveness of both offensive and healing abilities, and can also be applied to item use.
