What is Kuro II in relation to the first one?
Kuro no Kiseki II: Crimson Sin takes place a year after Kuro no Kiseki, in the year S.D. 1209. After thwarting the plans of the Almata organization, Van thought that the peaceful (?) days would return. But after a certain incident, the Arkride Solutions Office will get to work once again.
TL Note: The (?) is on purpose. It’s in the original text.

The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is the latest entry of the ongoing Trails series, taking place after the recently concluded Cold Steel Erebonia arc, and after The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki, releasing in the west in 2023 as The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie.
This new title takes place in Calvard, one of the central regions of the series’ setting, the continent of Zemuria. While there are several returning characters from the Liberl, Crossbell, and Erebonia arcs, there is also a slew of new characters, each with their own struggles, relationships, and goals that enhance the liveliness of the in-game world.
Additionally, combat has undergone a significant shake-up, with action now freely swappable with turn-based in several circumstances, granting an impressive degree of player choice. The game is currently available in Japan for the PlayStation 4.
