Plus, new story, world, and transportation details.

Dengeki PlayStation this week lifts the lid on the four protagonists of Falcom’s upcoming PlayStation 3 and PS Vita RPG The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki.

Editor’s Note: This post has been updated since its original post time on February 12 at 2:15 a.m. EST thanks to a full summary from Sokuho@Hokanko. The original post, which obtained its information from Game Nyarth and Karinchan Takkyuuubin, contained errors and misinformation in the shuffle of early magazine leaks.

Rean Schwartzer: 17-years-old. Weapon: long sword. The adopted son of Baron Schwartzer. Feeling inferior as an adopted child, he enrolls in the military academy to find himself. He uses the Hachiyou Ittou sword style, and is taught by Yun Kafei, who he met seven years earlier. Kafei is the grandfather of Sora no Kiseki‘s Anelace Elfead and teacher of Cassius Bright.

Alisa Reinford: 17-years-old. Weapon: bow. Daughter of the largest orbal production company in the empire. She enrolled in the military academy as a method of rebellion against working for her mother. She appears to have an intense personality, but is actually a good-natured person.

Eliot Craig: 17-years-old. Weapon: magic staff. The son of imperial army general “Red-haired Craig.” He has a friendly personality and is a fan of music. He wishes to attend the musical academy, however, his father opposes that he enroll in the military academy. His magic staff was developed by the Reinford Company.

Laura S. Arseid: 17-years-old. Weapon: two-handed sword. Daughter of the Viscount Arseid. She comes from a military family similar to the Vanders (from Sora no Kiseki The 3rd). She has natural ability for using the sword, but can also be a bit ignorant of the ways of the world.

Outside of the four protagonists, the magazine also has new details on the game’s story, world, and methods of transportation.

Prologue

In recent years, in the militaristic nation of the Elebonian Empire (located in the western part of Zemuria), reformist groups and noble factions, led by the Iron Chancellor, are failing to see eye to eye. This conflict has effected the “Thors Military Academy” on the outskirts of the city, where the son of a local noble will soon be enrolled.

Thors Military Academy

It is possible that Olivier (from Sora no Kiseki) may be the school’s director. This is simply a guess on our source’s part, however.

Differences in social status at Thors are represented by uniform color. A white uniform, for example, symbolizes nobility. A green uniform symbolizes a commoner. The protagonist’s uniform is different, however.

Crimson Imperial Capital Heimdallr

A city furnished with locomotive lines and stations. The magazine features a screenshot of the city. You’ll be able to enter all of its doors and all of the city’s inhabitants seem to be named.

Vehicles

There are several methods of transportation in Sen no Kiseki:

  • Imperial Army Tank
  • Airship: an illustration shows a red airship.
  • Orbal Tram: a tram that runs throughout Heimdallr.
  • Orbal Bike: there is also a variation that includes a sidecar.
  • Cable Car
  • Horse

Staff Comments

While the eastern part of Elebonia is the main setting of Sen no Kiseki, other regions will also appear. The officially released map is of that eastern part, but Crossbell State and the Calvard Republic are also on it.

The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki is due out this year in Japan.
