The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II

A new trailer for The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II has come out by way of Amazon Japan.

The four-minute trailer shows off the game’s battle system, field exploration, and mini-games (cards, snowboarding, and swimming), as well as a first look at two returning characters from a non-Sen game in action.

Watch the trailer below. The RPG is due out for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on September 25.

    @Sal This trailer is lacking audio.

    Also, did you get my previous post about the thumbnail issue?

    • Sal Romano

      Yeah, the Amazon Japan-hosted version doesn’t have it either.

      Which post?

      • Pyrofrost

        Ah, no problem then.

        As for the thumbnail issue; almost every article shared across social media for the past several days is displaying an incorrect thumbnail.
        It’s pretty distracting and noticeable, by the readership (at least people on my FB have spoken to me about it). So I wanted to make sure to bring it to your attention.

        I will just link Gematsu’s FB page as an example.

        sal, can you update the video with this, it has voices

  • PrinceHeir

    I wonder if the next Ys will be 3D like this one??

    • kurosan9712

      Wasn’t Celceta no Jukai already?

      • Pyrofrost

        Pretty much. Seven, Oath, Origin, and Celceta were 3D; and Napishtim was 2.5D iirc.

  • Budgiecat

    how epic looking is ths rpg? Meanwhile we got 3 crappy FF’s, a bunch of moeblob fanservice rpgs localized instead….life’s just not fair.

    • Pyrofrost

      It’s unfortunate, isn’t it.

      As far as how epic this series is, I rate it at the level of Grandia 1 and 2, which is pretty fucking epic.

      • Budgiecat

        yeah I have Grandia 1 on my PS3 now and Grandia II is on my PC.

        I would like to pick up Grandia III even though I heard the story wasn’t so hot (but the battle engine is)

          Grandia 3 huh…. You have no idea in how much pain i am right now due to the fact that it never got released here in Europe.

          Same goes for Xenosaga 1 and 3, seems like Namco at that time thought that it is a smart idea not releasing Xenosaga 1. So they decided to release the worst in the whole serie X2 and it floped so they didn’t release the best in the serie which is 3.

          Someone kill me for how stupid some people can be. And why the fuck did they bother releasing all the grandia games in Europe but fuck us over with the third one which looked the best out of all 4 including grandia xtreme.

          • Budgiecat

            Well you guys got Global Defense Force 2 (EDF 2) but that didnt stop me (imported). As long as a games in a language I can understand, and there’s easy ways around a region block (Swap Magic)…

            And this LoH game is very story driven so understanding the story is a big part : /

            • zakou

              It is too late for me to do anything right now, if i posted here how many methods i tried you would suicide xD

              I can post just a tiny bit so you get the picture, both of my TV’s sort of downscale PS2 games, they look like crap, the TVs kinda stretch the games so they look worse than on the SD TV but i dont have an SD TV cause no one fucking sells it here lol.

              Second, i hacked my PS2 by importing from the US some james bond game and i bought all the Xenosaga games imported then…i had to do some memory card trick, burn discs, beat some random level on the james bond exploit…. and i did probably 50 other things just to play the games that i payed for but cant play on my PS2…. someone put me out of my misery xD

              The only thing that would really make me happy right now is for monolith/Namco to releae Xenosaga HD trilogy on the PS3.

    for those who want to watch the opening

      Typical Nihon Falcom Opening. Too bad that I won’t ever play this :( TBH they changed a bit since they now have voiced songs. I do wonder if they will do the same to the Ys series.

  • Articuno76

    Hmm. Still hard to really appreciate how much better the animation is without seeing a long, uninterrupted gameplay sequence at decent quality.

    Shaping up quite well from what I can tell though. I wasn’t interested in this at all but now I’m thinking I might bite into it this year.
