Another pair of old faces enter the fold.


In a stunning display of sheer tenacity, Falcom has once again graced us with another update pertaining to The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II, doling out information for two returning characters players can expect to see in the new game. As per usual with these things, given the nature of these reveals, be on the lookout for potential spoilers. Check out our translation of their official profiles below.


Lecter Arandor (voiced by Masakazu Morita)

“Well, would you look at that? Suddenly my drive to go do it is all gone.”

Lecter is a 22 year-old man who works as a captain for the intelligence bureau of the empire’s army in addition to his title of a second class secretary within the imperial government. As a member of Prime Minister Osborne’s group “Iron Breed,” in the previous game, he routinely showed up where Rean and his party were, tackling the various problems that would sprout up locally around the empire. While on the face of things he appears to be an aloof and elusive person who tries not to be tied down to others, he nonetheless has an excellent track record as a negotiator for back door dealings involving the government and army, succeeding nearly every time he takes up such work. This reputation has in turn earned him the nickname “Scarecrow.”


Victor S. Arseid (voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto)

“My sword and my power are merely an extension of you.”

The 43 year-old Victor is the father of Class VII’s and head of the Arseid family overall. Although known as the “Swordsmith of Light” as the strongest swordsman in the whole empire, he, like Prince Olivert, is troubled by the conflict between the nobles and the reformists and appeared in the prequel as captain of the Courageous, a high speed battle cruiser. As the lord of Legram, Victor is ethical man popular among the people who isn’t afraid to stand up to even Duke Albarea when necessary. During the initial chaos in the wake of the civil war breaking out, however, he and Prince Olivert both disappear, their whereabouts unknown….

The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II is out in Japan on September 25 for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Check out another load of new screenshots and artwork at the gallery here.

    At this rate the average party size will need to be six characters… Otherwise half of the roster will just rot. <_<

    • Shippoyasha

      Oh well. Good reason as any to replay the game if that’s the case, mixing and matching with new teams.

      • Budgiecat

        Valkyrie Chronicles
        Lost Dimension

    • there are 20 playable character and some are temp during early part and they might be fully playable at the end, who knows.

    • fyi1191

      I bet final boss will have everyone participate. Like the boss will auto kill the current party after its health drops till a certain %.

      • JeremyTMH

        In Sora 3rd if my memory is correct (I’ve not played 3rd for a very long time), for the final battle you have to use all 16 of your party characters because the final battle has everyone split into 4 teams of 4 to tackle the final bosses. The 4th and final team against Anima Mundi had Kevin and Reiss compulsory with the other 2 your own choice. I remember I used Joshua and Klose for the other 2 to balance the party out…

    • JeremyTMH

      Some might be temp, some might not join until much later, certain parties may be formed during certain story segments or situations. Its not the first time we got a huge party, the last time was Sora 3rd.

      • DukeVerde

        AKA a game 98% of us haven’t played

  • Budgiecat

    localize baby please localize
    …localize..(baby localize!)
    Oh no noo you can’t despise,
    ..localize…(baby localize!)

    • MrKappa

      The second trails still isn’t even out yet so you can expect this one to come some time in 2060.

      • kurosan9712

        Second might not be out till 2015, withhow easily the push the release dates. Not that I care

  • cyberkinghardy

    Asking for localization is like wishing in the clouds to let it rain iced tea :)

    • Budgiecat

      cloudy with a chance of meatballs…

  • Lechter will scare Crow away~

  • kingofgame981

    OMG I do really want to know who the artist for these characters is, I fell in love with them!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    Gonna be amazing!

  • MrTyrant

    Never linked Letcter dunno why.

    • JeremyTMH

      He’s too shady and you can’t tell where his true alliances lie. We’ve seen him since Sora after all and till now where his heart really belongs isn’t really shown yet.

  • BizarreJelly

    XSEED pls

  • Ping92

    hw many more kiseki games will there be?

    • JeremyTMH

      Barely half the Zemuria Continent is mapped… if anything.

      • MrTyrant

        I think Falcom’s president was asked something similar and he only responded that for now he is not thinking how the game will end since there are a lot of places to explore and he hasn’t thought about ending yet but eventually it will happen someday.
