The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash II Brings Back Two Familiar Gentlemen

By Sato . August 15, 2014 . 5:30pm


Falcom recently showed off new and familiar characters for The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash II. 4Gamers latest update on the game also shows two familiar swordsmen that were key characters in the first game.


Lecter Arandor:



Lecter is the young red-haired man, who is the captain of the empire army’s equivalent of the CIA, and even has the title of Second Class Secretary to go with it.


002 003

He’s a member of the “Iron Breed,” a group that is under direct control by the prime minister Osborne. He often showes up wherever Rean and friends were at, while taking on different tasks around the empire.


He might appear a little easygoing and maybe even come across as a slacker at times, but when it comes to his negotiating work, he’s second to none. He’s also known as “the Scarecrow”.


Victor S. Arseid:



Victor the father of Class VII’s Laura S. Arseid, and is the head of the Arseid household.


006 005

Victor is an excellent swordsman of the empire, and is also known as the “Swordsmith of Light”. However, he has a similar mindset to Prince Olivert, and feels a bit uneasy about the opposition between the nobles and reformists.


As the lord of the lakeside town of Legram, he is loved and well-respected by the people, and he isn’t even afraid to speak out against his superior, the Duke Albarea, if it means standing up for his beliefs.


The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash II will be released in Japan on September 25, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

  • Isuke-sama

    Please bring back Estelle and Joshua too Falcom!

    • DudeOnly

      They won’t be, since Joshua costume will be available for Rean and Estelle for Alisa, also it’s hard to imagine them there ;)

      • MrTyrant

        I don’t want to be that guy but I don’t really need them they were once for Zero and that’s it….if something I would like Falcom make me recruit some other secundary character from older games.

        • DanielGearSolid

          Something about recruiting in jrpgs that’s so enjoyable.

          Anybody ever get all 108 stars?

          • MrTyrant

            Didn’t you get all of them? man that was obligatory for me but in some games I used a guide lol

            Well in Kiseki those characters are obligatory recruit since being this a more storydriven game all those characters are important within plot that being said in sen II you can recruit npc to your ship and customize it similar to the homebase in Suikoden and I just loved that.

          • DanielGearSolid

            Highest I got was like 70 something in Suikoden 3 lol

      • JeremyTMH

        Plot-wise would be difficult. For the earlier part of Sen II’s story, Joshua and gang were helping Llyod indirectly at Crossbell against the Oroboros mechas. After the events of the Tree, they were helping Renne get over her loss of Patel Matel and likely returned to Liberl just before the Imperial invasion. Of course whether they helped in the liberation of Crossbell later in the next 2 years or they were doing something else (maybe anti-Empire blitzes along the Liberl/Empire border) is anyone’s guess, but they were definitely not in the Crossbell liberation epilogue in Ao.

    Really like the 2D character designs. Really really dislike the 3D models. Not just an ordinary sort of dislike. The character expressions in game are incredibly bad. The kinda bad that makes you want to facepalm your Vita everytime a character tries to make some expression. Don’t understand why Falcom went with the 3D models when clearly this isn’t where they excel in.

    • AkuLord3

      Disagree, i think the expressions are good and heck the 3D models are alright. Not great but not bad but yeah usually “blah blah 2D is better, 3D is lame blah blah”. If you don’t like it that’s fine, Falcom aren’t bleeding money so they can’t make it perfect for you and its not like the models were the reason you enjoyed the series.

      • MrTyrant

        I would agree with you there. They are taking their first step in developing a 3D like this and I know that they did some in the past but Ys and such is not the same. Here they wanted to get closer to FF or Tales games in perspective, of course they are not perfect but I would complain more about the texture in fields that character itself haha

    • PotatoPower

      i actually feel like the 3d models look beautiful. although the faces do look a bit strange, i feel like most 3d tales games are just as bad

  • Raze

    This time

    Let me beat Victor, Falcom

    Heck don’t make any scripted battle where player can’t win
    It’s really annoying
