[UPDATE] The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin Introduces Dominique Ranster & Mirabel Aalton; New Screenshots

Famitsu has shared new character information for the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed JRPG, The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin.

Not much of new significance is shown aside from character renders and profiles for Judith Ranster’s grandmother, Dominique Ranster, and the Marduk maid, Mirabel Aalton. According to Toshihiro Kondo, Mirabel will be a vital story character despite her appearance not implying such.

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 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 release 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.
