New Kuro no Kiseki Trailer for PS5 & PC Humorously Has Overlaying English Text Despite Not Releasing in That Language

Publisher Clouded Leopard Entertainment has shared a trailer for the upcoming Asia-only PlayStation 5 and Steam releases of The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki. However, what’s rather interesting and somewhat humorous about this trailer is that the overlaying trailer text is in English, despite the game itself obviously not being that way.

It’s certainly odd that they would go through the trouble of implementing English onto a trailer for a non-English release, but hey, it’s cool, I guess. I won’t lie, though. It does sting a bit to see marketing in English when a localization won’t occur for a couple of years.

The PlayStation 5 version of Kuro no Kiseki is launching in Japan on July 28, 2022. The Traditional Chinese and Korean PlayStation 5 versions of the game will also launch on the same day. A Steam launch is also planned for the same date with Traditional Chinese & Korean subtitles.

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.
