If you cannot wait to play the latest Falcom RPG epic and can speak either Chinese or Korean, here’s some news for you.
Clouded Leopard Entertainment Inc. has announced the Traditional Chinese and Korean language versions of The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki, which is the follow-up to The Legend of Heroes series. This version will be out on 10th February, 2022 for PS4, and will come in Standard, Digital Deluxe, Digital Ultimate, and SPRIGGAN editions.
You can preorder all digital versions of the game right now on the PlayStation Store. If you’re interested in the ultimate version of the game, just note that the SPRIGGAN edition contains the following:
(1) The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki Soundtrack Mini (with Tall Case)
A mini soundtrack with tall case The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki containing a variety of background music from the game, themed after the multi-ethnic country that is the Calvard Republic, where the game is set.
(2) The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki Early Materials Book: “To The Land of Origin and Dawn”
A 96-page art book containing a vast amount of materials including concept visuals, characters, the areas of the Calvard Republic, weapons, orbal cinema, enemy characters, and more.
(3) The Arcride Solution Office Character Data File

Hollow Core Voice: Latoya Hamilton
Original downloadable content that allows players to change the system voice of the tactical orbment Xipha to that of the young Dr. Latoya Hamilton (voiced by Kikuko Inoue).
Right now, there’s no date for the game’s English version, but it’s most likely going to be mid-2022. Falcom games are text-heavy, so it may take the talented localization team a while to see that version come into fruition.
The last entry was The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV for PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. That was a helluva way to end a four-parter series that continues The Legend of Heroes story thread.
