A life-size statue of the Grendel from The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki will appear in Japan. Nihon Falcom is producing the statue to help promote Kuro no Kiseki II – Crimson Sin, the upcoming sequel to the JRPG. It will place the statue for the first time on the 6th floor of the Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Akiba store in Akihabara on June 21, 2022. Falcom is also planning to showcase the statue at more locations in Japan, although it has yet to finalize the schedule.
Falcom has also shared several close-up portraits of the Grendel statue, which is still undergoing supervision and finishing touches. The life-size statue will have a height of over 2 meters (~6′ 6.75″) upon its completion.
The Grendel debuted in the first Kuro no Kiseki entry. The title protagonist Van Arkride has the ability to transform into this superhero-like being. The transformation gives Van a massive boost for his combat abilities in the game’s battle scenes. The upcoming sequel, Kuro no Kiseki II – Crimson Sin, will feature an antagonistic red Grendel known as the Grendel-Zolga.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki is available on PlayStation 4 in Japan and Asia. Nihon Falcom will release its sequel Kuro no Kiseki II – Crimson Sin for the PS4 and PS5 in Japan on September 29, 2022.
