This Week In Imports: Hajimari no Kiseki Begins a New Chapter in The Legend of Heroes

Hajimari no Kiseki

This week’s biggest new release is undoubtedly The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki, the latest game in Falcom’s long-running RPG series. The game takes place after the events of the Cold Steel series, and helps clear up loose ends from all across the series. Lloyd Bannings and Rean Schwarzer return as two of the protagonists, while a third chapter revolves around entirely new characters who will help set up a new chapter in the series. This game will also be the last game to use the existing game engine used by Falcom since Trails of Cold Steel.

Apart from Hajimari no KisekiFinal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition also returns on modern platforms to give the game a second chance. The game is very multiplayer-focused, having been originally released for Nintendo GameCube with Game Boy Advance compatibility, and the remaster will add in (region-locked) online multiplayer at the expense of offline multiplayer. Key features include the ability to combine magic with other players to create higher-tier versions, but players also need to make sure to carry the chalice across the game’s various dungeons. The remaster adds in several more post-game dungeons, as well as the ability to play as other characters across the series via DLC.

The following are this week’s Japanese imports.
