The saga of The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is getting ready to continue in The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-. Falcom announced plans to release the sequel—which has young Spriggan Van Arkride in the lead and aims to follow the events of the first chapter with an even more polished story—on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan in Fall 2022.
CRIMSON SiN sees illustrator Katsumi Enami returning from the first game as character designer.
Here's an overview of the story, via Gematsu:
S.1209. After the threat of the mafia organization Armata was gone, the Republic of Calvard regained its former peace.
But one day, in a corner of Edith City, a bizarre incident occurs in which a CID (Central Intelligence Department) special operations squad was found slaughtered.
The Calvard Police and Bracer Guild begin investigating the matter. But sensing that a new time of chaos may come, underground factions also start making moves.
Meanwhile, Spriggan Van Arkide also begins his investigation, kickstarted by a visit from an unexpected someone.
Who is the culprit behind the massacre? Why did they do it? And what will happen to Agnes, who is searching for the Eighth Genesis, the last legacy of her great grandfather?
The brutish roar of a crimson beast, and an encounter with a young boy and girl seeking “something” will lead them down a “Trail” that they cannot escape.
Stay tuned for more on this one as further details are revealed.
