Testing my abilities to write original headlines time and again, week after week of sending out same-y press releases that are structured more or less the same way with the same amount of content, Falcom has once again opted to showcase another two characters that will be showing up in The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II when it launches in Japan late next month.
Find all the new details below. And as always, potential spoiler warnings are in effect.
Prince Olivert Reise Arnor (voiced by Takehito Koyasu)
“I’m sorry to impose, but we’ll be taking that off your hands if you don’t mind!”
The Erebonia Empire’s Prince Olivert is the oldest child of Emperor Jugend the III. Known as a man of refined tastes, the 27 year-old was born an illegitimate child, rendering his claim to the thrown null and void. Possibly because of those circumstances, he’s recently taken to making the rounds among high society and the media, making his name known more and more widely known. As the chairman of Thors Military Academy, he’s also responsible for the formation of Rean and company’s Class VII as its planner. Concerned about the rising tensions between the aristocrats and the reformists, he headed up construction of the Courageous, the latest and fastest warship around, and also tried working with those with no stake in the conflict or otherwise had good senses about them in an effort to stave off civil war as “The Third Power.” But right as the war breaks out, he and the Courageous both mysteriously disappear without a trace.
Georges Nome (voiced by Takeshi Mori)
“I still can’t believe you actually managed to survive that fight. Not that I’m complaining, of course.”
Georges is a 19 year-old who’s been at Thors for two years. Known for sporting a tracksuit, he’s a sturdily built person that’s a mentor to the younger students. Although still only a student himself, he’s extremely talented with technology, doing things such as building Orbal motorbikes and heading up the school’s technological facilities all by himself, becoming someone that all sorts of people came to turn to for help. During his first year, along with Crow, Towa, and Angelica, he helped run various events around the school. As a result of the experience, he and the others have their suspicions about what’s up with Crow’s defection. When the academy becomes a target for attack at the outset of the civil war, he and Towa stay behind, but what happened to him after that remains unknown.
The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II is due out for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on September 25 in Japan. Check out the usual slew of new art and screenshots at the gallery.
