Kuro no Kiseki II Loses Best Toilet in Gaming 2022 Award to Ghostwire: Tokyo

Kuro no Kiseki II Loses Best Toilet in Gaming 2022 Award to Ghostwire: Tokyo

Late last year, we reported on a rather unique gaming award from Japanese outlet Game Spark, asking which 2022 title had the best toilet. Several candidates were nominated, including Gotham Knights, Horizon Forbidden West, Yomawari Lost in the Dark, and even the Nihon Falcom-developed The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin.

Unfortunately, Kuro no Kiseki II did not win the award, with Ghostwire: Tokyo taking it instead. Commenting on a Kuro submission by a fan, the outlet inquired, “Why are the floors and wall so scuffed and dirty…when the sink and toilet bowl themselves are squeaky clean……..?”

In all honesty, I agree with that assessment. The bathrooms in Kuro no Kiseki always reminded me of the ones in my high school, which isn’t exactly a point of praise.

While the janitors often kept the toilets and sinks clean, the surrounding environment was anything but. There was also an incident where a fellow student took a dump in the middle of the hallway, causing walking traffic to become congested and ruining an exam occurring in a nearby room, but that’s a story for another time.

The list of winners is viewable below, with some pretty interesting names we’re unsure how to elaborate on:

  • Special Jury’s Choice Award: Stray
  • Like a Relative I Have to See Every Year Award: Call of Duty MW2
  • I Wish This Was Sold in Japan Award: Calisto Protocol
  • The Toilet is the Protagonist!? Award: Aperture Desk Job
  • The Worst Toilet Ever Award: Goat Simulator 3
  • Toilet of the Year: Ghostwire Tokyo

The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan. The title will also launch for PC via Steam on January 26, 2023, with Korean and Traditional Chinese language support.

The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is the latest arc 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 Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
