Boar Abel (voiced by Gakuto Kajiwara)
- Age: 17
- Weapon: Unique double blades
A young man and former hit man who escaped the killer organization “Garden” several years ago.
He uses double blades in battle, which can be combined to increase their strength, and can also be sliced to “mark” body parts to be detonated.
While he may appear dry and rationalistic at first glance, he’s certainly not cold-blooded – in fact, he’s pretty straightforward and sensible.
While on the run with Nadia for a while after escaping Garden, he vowed never to take another human life and earn their travel expenses through jobs like smuggling.
After that, he seems to be living a new life with the friends he made during his journey from Crossbell State to the Erebonian Empire…
Nadia Rayne (voiced by Manaka Iwami)
- Age: 15
- Weapon: Needles and custom teddy bears
A young lady and former hit man who escaped the killer organization “Garden” with her partner Swin.
She possesses somewhat extraordinary and excellent math and prediction skills, which she uses in battle by sharpening her senses to “analyze” the enemy’s situation and weaknesses. But all that burnt energy means she’s sometimes asleep or slacking off when the battle is over.
She is always seen as a free spirit and Swin’s spoiled child, but her down-to-earth thinking is actually much more incredulous and realistic compared to Swin.
Aware of this aspect, she supports Swin – who is essentially the “honest” one – by taking on the role of the one who questions others behind the scenes.
Like Swin, she lives a new life with new friends after the “Second Uprising” in Crossbell.
■ New areas
In The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-, you can explore even more areas, including Messeldam, the North City, which you couldn’t visit in the first game. In addition, many new areas have appeared in each region, including Edith City.
Messeldam, the North City
A medium-sized port town overlooking the northern sea in North Calvard. An important point of the northern sea trade, it was once an important fishing area for the supply of fresh seafood to Oracion City, but its influence waned after the development of airship technology. Nevertheless, it remains an important gateway to areas such as Remiferia.
Unlike South Langport, Messeldam does not have an Eastern Quarter, and the harbor area that has retained its Kingdom-era cityscape is popular as a historic district. Although less familiar with Eastern and Middle Eastern cultures geographically, the anti-traditional avant-garde artwork has long been thriving, and the “Orbal Film Festival” was held here every year until Tharbad became its new location in S.1208 .
Edith City: Trion Mall
A huge shopping center in front of Trion Tower in Edith City’s 3rd Burrough. The stores include “Verne Store” where Verne Company’s latest orbal products can be purchased; “Quincy Parlor”, where one can enjoy premium sweets; the “Orbal Cinema Complex”, where numerous films are shown; “Liberl Antenna Shop”, which sells products imported from the Liberia Kingdom; and more.
Edith City: Center Marche
Edith City’s busiest major market. Because it has everything from daily necessities to fresh food, it is known as Edith’s kitchen and is frequented by many as a popular tourist destination, so it is always buzzing.
In an area just a few steps from the main street is a coffee shop that sells specialty coffee beans, which appear to be the same beans used for the coffee in Monmarte.
Langport, the beautiful city: Eastern 2nd Avenue
An area known as the “old town” of the Eastern Quarter. Unlike 1st Avenue, the face of the Eastern Quarter and the grass of the Lu family, it is rarely visited by tourists as there are many shops and amenities related to the lives of the locals, including inexpensive restaurants and public baths .
It is also the area that houses the main dojo of the “Moon Flower Style” (Gekka) – one of the three main Eastern styles of martial arts.
In The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-, protagonist and Spriggan Van and his allies will be separated from each other in different locations in the Republic of Calvard and act separately. Each part uses a chapter selection system. The main members for each chapter differ, and individual stories unfold.
(After a selected chapter ends, the story unfolds in a way that automatically starts the other chapter.)
Some chapters have special missions
Special missions can take place throughout the story, depending on the character traits that appear in each chapter, such as an orbal network hacking mission where you play as the Hollow Core AI Mare, or a target-tailing mission that uses Swin’s abilities .
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN- will be released for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on September 29 in Japan and in Asia in 2022 with traditional Chinese and Korean subtitles.
