During Nihon Falcom’s Shareholders Meeting held earlier today, the latest installment in the long-running franchise entitled The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin was announced for a PS4 and PS5 Japan release in 2022.
As translated by Gematsu, here are some details for The Legend of Heroes: Kuro No Kiseki II Crimson Sin:
S.1209. After the threat of the mafia organization Armata was gone, the Republic of Calvard regained its former peace.
But one day, in a corner of Edith City, a bizarre incident occurs in which a CID (Central Intelligence Department) special operations squad was found slaughtered.
The Calvard Police and Bracer Guild begin investigating the matter. But sensing that a new time of chaos may come, underground factions also start making moves.
Meanwhile, Spriggan Van Arkide also begins his investigation, kickstarted by a visit from an unexpected someone.
Who is the culprit behind the massacre? Why did they do it? And what will happen to Agnes, who is searching for the Eighth Genesis, the last legacy of her great grandfather?
The brutish roar of a crimson beast, and an encounter with a young boy and girl seeking “something” will lead them down a “Trail” that they cannot escape.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro No Kiseki II Crimson Sin will feature a new and further polished story with Spriggan Van Arkride as the main protagonist. It will retail the best points of the first game like the unique battle system and the LGC alignment system which will change based on the actions of the player.
At the moment, there is no announcement for the game to appear in the west, so a translated version may take a while to arrive especially with 4 other “Trails” games coming in the next two years.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro No Kiseki II Crimson Sin is scheduled for a Fall 2022 release for the PS4 and PS5 in Japan.
