Falcom has released the debut trailer and opened the official website for online story RPG The Legend of Heroes: Akatsuki no Kiseki, its Trails series 10th anniversary project in joint development with Userjoy Group.
Here’s the game’s premise:
Western Zemuria, Crossbell State. Nacht Weiss, a boy who’s longed to become a Bracer for much of his life, encounters on the day of his certification exam Chloe Barnett, a girl sporting black hair, a rare sight in those parts. Much like Nacht, Chloe has also come to take the same exam as well, albeit from the Liberl Kingdom. As they both descend underneath Crossbell City together to the Geofront to take their examination, they catch word of a “Special Support Division” from Michelle, a secretary working as part of a Bracer outpost. And thus begins the grand adventures of the unwieldy pair of Nacht and Chloe.
Falcom has also begun a pre-registration campaign. An open beta test is scheduled to begin soon. Pre-registering will get you playable character Noel Seeker (★2) from The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki as a present. If 10,000 people pre-register, you’ll also get a 250 Bracer Coins. If 20,000 people pre-register, Noel will change to a (★3) and you’ll get 500 Bracer Coins. And if it reaches 30,000 people, Noel will change to a (★4).
The Legend of Heroes: Akatsuki no Kiseki is due out for PC in Japan this summer.
