The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin Reveals 30 Minutes of New Gameplay; S-Craft Compilation Video Shared

Japanese outlets Famitsu and Dengeki recently unveiled a slew of new gameplay footage for the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed turn-based and action JRPG hybrid The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin. The former showcased a trial version of the game taking place in Märchen Garden, highlighting multiple playable characters in combat. Roughly 32 minutes of footage was shown in that broadcast.

Then, Dengeki’s coverage comprises a video sharing all of the new S-Crafts, essentially ultimate character skills, before release. If you’d like to save the S-Crafts as surprises for when you first play the game, I’d advise avoiding this particular video.

Famitsu also shared the cover for their upcoming September 22, 2022, issue, which prominently features The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin on its front cover.


The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin is releasing for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan on September 29, 2022.

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