    Van Arkride returns as the main protagonist.

    Nihon Falcom revealed new details about The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell, O Zemuria-, including the game’s story, characters, combat system, and so much more. In addition, the official teaser site for The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell O, Zemuria- is now live.

    Revealed as the Trails 20th anniversary game, The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell, O Zemuria- will bring a “dramatic change” for Trails. Specifically, the story leads players toward the prophesized “X Day,” which has been subtly teased through various Trails games. Falcom will release the game in Japanese, and Clouded Leopard Entertainment will release the game with Chinese and Korean language options.

    The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell O, Zemuria- Story and Characters

    Van Arkride (VA: Daisuke Ono) returns as the protagonist of the main story for The Legend of Heroes: Kai no Kiseki -Farewell O, Zemuria-. As a 25-year-old Spriggan, he helps those who lost their way between the real world and the underworld. He has his own methods for making decisions, but his resolve may be tested when it comes to his favorite sweets. 

    Agnes Claudel (VA: Miku Ito) is a second-year student attending Aramis High School. The 17 year old girl has a gentle spirit with a great sense of determination. She works part-time at the Arkride Solutions Office after requesting Van to pursue a Genesis, an orbment left to Agnes by her great-grandfather. After receiving the Oct-Genesis, she decided to continue working with Van, who she’s in love with. 

    Bergard Zeman (VA: Akio Otsuka) is a 69-year-old former priest for the Septian Church. As a master of the Kunlun style, he has many disciples across Zemuria. He’s also an important master for Van. He travelled east after the incident in the Republic, but he reunites with Van in order to help him. 

    For a refresher, here’s an overview of the game’s premise: 

    “In the year 120X, everything comes to an end.”

    C. Epstein, the father of the orbal revolution, prophesized the end of the Zemurian continent.

    As “X Day” approaches, a massive orbal rocket is about to be launched from a large military base built in the Kunlun Range.

    “Can man make it past the planet’s atmosphere?”

    “What lies at the end of the continent?”

    “Will mankind be able to uncover the true nature of the ‘world’?”

    While the whole world watches to witness the largest undertaking since the dawn of history, somewhere in the singularity that is Ored, forces from all over the land were about to gather, including a young “Spriggan.”
