Nihon Falcom just announced a brand new entry in the Trails series titled The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki. Kuro no Kiseki is a 40th anniversary game for Falcom. The battle system in Kuro no Kiseki is a revamped take on the Trails combat that seamlessly transitions from action-oriented battles to turn-based systems with unique elements. Kuro no Kiseki is set in the Calvard Republic. The title of the game is reflected in the colours associated with the protagonist as well. Kuro no Kiseki also uses Falcom’s new game engine.
