Thanks to our team’s Ryuji for clarifying the patch notes.


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 available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan and in Traditional Chinese and Korean via Steam.
