Falcom finally got around to opening an official site for The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki today. It also shared character, story and world details, and released a first promotional video.
This latest PSP Legend of Heroes game is a sequel to the Sora no Kiseki line of titles, which has sold over 900,000 units. It features a new cast of characters and story, set in the same world as past Legend of Heroes games. Falcom promises the highest level RPG in PSP history.
Joining the site opening, Falcom sent out details on the game's background story and its primary cast of characters.
Zero no Kiseki takes place Crossbell City, a large city located on the Western edge of the continent. It was once the battle ground for a battle between the neighboring countries, but has since become a thriving city with a financial district, entertainment facilities and residential areas.
All is not well with the city, though. Its governing representatives are in conflict over their leanings towards the neighboring Empire and Republic. Additionally, mafia and foreign crime organizations have started to do battle in the underside of the city. The people no longer trust their own police.
The story begins as four youths gather at Crossbell City Police Station. Those four are:
The 18-year-old main character, and a new detective with the Crossbell Police. After the loss of his brother, also a detective, three years ago, Lloyd temporarily resided overseas. He excelled at the police academy, got the qualification for being a detective, and returned to Crossbell to join the force. He's voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara.
Granddaughter of the mayor of Crossbell City. She has suspicions of the Crossbell government and has been traveling neighboring countries as an exchange student. For some currently unknown reason, she's returned with intention of joining the police. She's voiced by Aya Endo.
A 14-year-old member of a technology group known as the Epistain Foundation. She's come to the Crossbell Police to test out a new piece of magic equipment. She's voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi.
A former police agent with the Crossbell Police. He was forced to leave the police due to his bad conduct, particularly with ladies. He's voiced by Shinichiro Miki
