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.
