Meet Emma, Fie, and Elise. And the Thors academy lieutenant.

Famitsu this week has more new character reveals for Falcom’s upcoming PlayStation 3 and PS Vita RPG sequel The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki.

  • Emma Millstein: The committee chairwoman of Class VII. A woman with long braided hair, she wears glasses and makes a calm impression. Her weapon is a magic staff. She is a commoner from a remote part of the empire but was accepted into Thors Military Academy due to its enriched scholarship system. She is a helpful and trusted person, and has a wealth of knowledge about herbs. She’s also secretly keeping a cat.
  • Fie Claussell: A girl with short silver hair and a student in Class VII. She has an unknown background, and at age 15, is younger than her friends. She’ll sleep anywhere. She wields dual pistols fitted with bayonets.
  • Elise Schwarzer: Rean’s younger sister and the biological daughter of Baron. She has dark purple hair. For a year, she has been attending St. Astraia Girl’s School (for girls from good blood) in the imperial capital Heimdall. She had always treated Rean as a true sibling, but has gradually started to take on a colder attitude towards him.
  • Lieutenant Neithardt: A lieutenant transferred from the regular army to the Thors Military Academy to become a military affairs instructor. He’s serious, lacks sociability, and supposedly does not get along with the homeroom teacher of Class VII.

Bareahard

A city governed by the Duke of Albalea. Lately, citizens are upset about major tax increases. As an area known for its jewels and furs, there are many craftspeople living there. There’s a central plaza, crafting district, station, restaurants, tailors, and a cathedral. You can buy clothes on display at tailors.

Field Escape

Outside of this week’s magazine update, a new short gameplay video was also released. Watch it below.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    I need this game in EU pls!!! I love the characters design

  • OverlordZetta

    How easy to play are these games without knowing Japanese?

    • DesmaX

      Well, there was this one part in Trails in the Sky (The localized one) where I had to talk to a NPC in a bar to advance the story, so I’ll assume you will want to use a guide for it

      Among JRPGs it’s probably the last series I would recommend playing without understanding the language. Extremely dialogue/text heavy and you would probably easily get lost since you will have no idea where to go.

    • raymk

      Thanks for pointing that out.

  • PrinceHeir

    want to see a longer gameplay video!!!!

  • Eclipse

    The character designs are so freaking good!

    I’m liking Phi’s choice of weapon.

    • raymk

      I agree the character designs are good. What is that weapon she has? It looks like a small gunblade.

      • Eclipse

        Yeah, it really does look like a small gunblade, but it’s apparently “dual-pistols fitted with bayonets”.

        It’s definitely a classy looking weapon~

        • raymk

          She is a dual wielder isn’t she? That makes it all the better :D. The weapon looks great and I hope to see some gameplay of it.

    • raymk
