Nihon Falcom has announced that it will hold a public in-game movie poster contest for The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II. The company will accept submissions from May 19 to July 3, 2022. It will publish a free DLC set that applies the winning posters in the game on the same day Kuro no Kiseki II launches in Japan in Fall 2022. The winners’ names will also appear in the game’s credits.
The upcoming contest will cover three movie titles set to play in Calvard during the timeline of Kuro no Kiseki II. Judith Ranster, one of the prequel’s main characters, will return as an actress and become the star of Robin – The Lady Justice. She will perform as the eponymous lawyer who has to defend a high school student accused of assaulting a homeless person.
The second movie, My Casa Blanca, will star Judith’s rival, Nina Fenly. She will play the role of Helena, a high school student who has to deal with a love confession from her junior, Sherry. The third and last title in the contest will be Fire Shark. It will feature the eponymous four meters-long (~13 feet) land creature known for killing many people at a well-known campsite in a forest.
While Falcom did provide image materials of the movie stars, it asked people to make their own illustrations instead of reusing the assets. The company also mandated that the posters contain the English movie titles and have a B2 (5:7) proportion ratio.
Falcom has yet to confirm whether it will limit the movie poster contest to residents of Japan or not. However, it will send the winners a free physical copy of Kuro no Kiseki II with a B2-sized poster containing their works.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II – Crimson Sin will be available for PlayStation 5 and 4 in Japan in Fall 2022.
