The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie Details Minigames & Daydreams; New Screenshots

Following the latest trailer for The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie, publisher NIS America updated the game’s official website, detailing the various minigames and side events players can anticipate.


The first introduced minigame is “Magical☆Alisa Love Shot.” This story-based 3D rail shooter is its own contained adventure, focusing on alternate versions of several beloved characters, including Alisa Reinford, Altina Orion, and Juna Crowford, on their collective quest as Magical Girls.

Humorously, protagonist Rean Schwarzer is an antagonist of sorts in this scenario. Gameplay comprises rapid standard shots, charged shots to destroy enemy shields, and special shots with unique properties.

Another minigame is “Who Wants to Be a Mirannaire?” Returning from Trails in the Sky 3rd as a minigame hosted by Ouroboros’ Fool, Campanella, Thors Military Academy alumnus Beryl has now taken on the mantle.

This bizarre fortune teller will quiz you on various facets of the Trails series. From basic knowledge, like Zemurian geography, to intricacies, such as family backgrounds, there is quite a bit here to affirm your Trails know-how.

Yet another minigame, or rather, side-scenario, is “Beachside Vay-Cay.” After an employee of Mishelam, Matthew Crawford, also Juna’s father, reaches out to Class VII, the group decides to hang out on the island’s beach.

A couple of minigames are available here: Slaughtermelon Splitting, requiring timed button presses, and Banana Boat, which has Rean ride on the sea with a chosen partner as you maintain balance and collect flags. Further, Intimate Moments can be accessed, where Rean will converse with a girl, and you will have to choose the correct options to keep them engaged. These specific segments are VR-compatible, and it’s also worth noting that a Special Support Section-themed variation of this scenario will be DLC.

The final detailed minigame is “Project Tyrfing.” Professor Makarov of Thors Military Academy is devising a way to link Panzer Soldats with their users, similar to how Awakeners resonated with their Divine Knights during the Civil War and Great Twilight.

These instances enhanced combative performance considerably, so Makarov created a new combat simulator for Rean to help gain data from. Combat is action-based, with you needing to switch between a rifle and a blade for ranged and melee bouts, respectively. Knowing when to evade and embrace defense will also be paramount for victory.

One final element worth elucidating is Daydreams, which we briefly introduced in our previous coverage. These side events obtained from Sealing Stones in the Reverie Corridor detail countless scenarios regarding the lives of the expansive cast. The official website has introduced a few Daydreams, quoted below with accompanying images.
