Hold on, it looks like Millium wants to tell you something.
Hey-hey! White Rabbit here! Lammy scanned this article and said it contains unmarked spoilers for all Trails games. Turn back now if you don't want to get lasered! Okay, byee!

“The land of dawn can be beheld past the shining blade, at the far end of the azure sky...”
Kuro no Kiseki's slogan

The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki (英雄伝説 (くろ)の軌跡, literally "Trails in the Dark") is the eleventh installment in the main Trails series. It will be released in 2021 on PlayStation 4.



The game marks the second half of the Trails series, set in Calvard. The story is set in S.1208, a year after Hajimari no Kiseki. Thanks to postwar reparations, the multinational state of Calvard experiences unprecedented economic growth while continuously dealing with public unrest caused by immigration and the new president's radical reforms. In a corner of its capital city, a young man working as a Spriggan receives a peculiar job that will result into something larger, affecting the entirety of the Republic.

――ここから、新たな “軌跡(ものがたり)”が始まる。

“Spriggan” -

A type of underground business that was borne from the diversity that is the Calvard Republic.

At times as a detective, at times as a negotiator, at other times as a bounty hunter, they accept all types of requests from anyone.

Subcontract work from the police on request that they can’t handle, consultations about things “can’t see the light of day” from civilians, even “legitimate” requests from criminals and underground groups.

That is the way of those that are called the “Spriggan”.

The year is 1208 of the Septian Calendar.

In the slums of the capital city of Calvard, in a rundown old building, a refined looking girl wearing the uniform of renowned school was paying visit.

She stared dignified at the simple letters on the plate.

She swallowed audibly and knocked on the door three times


“(YAAAWN), a visitor before lunch... that’s unusual...”

At a glance, lazy but composed, seemingly mature but rather quite the young man’s voice rang out and the doorknob turned slowly.

-Here is the beginning of a new “Trails (story)”.


Artwork for protagonist and heroine.

Nihon Falcom announced Kuro no Kiseki', alongside Nayuta no Kiseki Kai and Trails of Cold Steel IV for Switch, on 17 December 2020. The character for "kuro" (黎, black) is taken from the Japanese word for dawn (黎明(れいめい)), for the game promises to shed light, like a sunrise, on the mysterious of previous games. On 20 December 2020, Falcom revealed character artwork for the protagonist and heroine, and that Zero and Ao no Kiseki artist Katsumi Enami would return as illustrator for Kuro.
