Plus, new artwork and screenshots. One has a horse!

Falcom has launched the official website, shared new artwork and screenshots, and detailed the prologue and empire in its upcoming PlayStation 3 and PS Vita RPG The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki.

Prologue

  • Elebonian Empire: This old major country boasting the largest domain is located in the Western part of the continent of Zemuria. In recent years, it has come under domestic stress is building due to the appearance of two powers.
  • Noble Faction: Mainly made up of the major noble clan known as “the noble family of the four elements,” they use their vast resources to maintain a regional army and protect what they conservatively view as rightfully theirs.
  • Reformist Group: A rising power attempting to usurp the power of the nobles, led by a common turned “Iron Chancellor.” They are expanding their military power with taxes gathered from the imperial capital and its provinces. These two powers will never see eye to eye and the antagonism is intensifying behind closed doors to the point where even the emperor’s mediation proved fruitless. This hidden feud has spread to all parts of the empire.

Elebonian Empire

A huge empire located in the western part of Zemuria with a golden horse on its emblem. It was an old-style nation ruled by the major noble clan, but under the policies of Gilias Osbourne, known as the Iron Chancellor, it has rapidly modernized due to the railroad system laid across the entire country.

Maintaining an enormous military presence consisting of not only the private army of the nobles, the Furstentum, but of over 20 panzer divisions, they have invaded the Kingdom of Libert and are constantly putting pressure on neighboring countries.

    • JazzyMan123

    Please get localized, please T.T

  • DesmaX

    I feel like just waiting for a good faq to appear on gamefaqs, and then import this game.

    This really isn’t coming to the west, so…

      dont lose your hope , even YS get localized

        *Looks at Tits:SC, Tits:TC, Nayuta no Kiseki and Zero no Kiseki*

        TT_TT *Sadface*

        • Pyrofrost

          Truth!
          But Nayuta really isn’t absolutely necessary; Ao is.

      • Pyrofrost

        There is a HUGE difference in localizing LoH and localizing Ys. The difference in the amount of translation work is completely beyond comparison.

        Not to mention, four other games need to be completed before XSeed can get to this.

      • DesmaX

        You can’t compare Ys localization costs to the Trails ones

        Trails script size puts most JRPG’s to shame

          That script size also gave one of Xseed’s localizers(Jess, I think) nightmares as well…. lol…

  • Ramza Beoulve

    Man nice art work i do say myself XD

  • KurisuMakise

    Keep up the good work, FALCOM <3

  • TyeTheCzar

    The character designs make the females look like they came from a Hentai game. It doesn’t help that the skirts are ridiculously short.

  • JazzyMan123

    This game will surely be localized!….in Chinese (highest probablity at the moment). So yay to me! *Still need to play Zero and Ao*

  • Waka The Baka

    Not getting localized. (ʳ ´º㉨º)ʳ Still nice. Will import.

  • PrinceHeir

    i want this on my Vita :D

  • DriftSlave

    please….XSEED localize this.

    • JazzyMan123

      This can’t be localized unless SC, 3rd, Zero and Ao are all localized first.
