Rean Schwarzer, the protagonist of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series, will appear on a dakimakura cover. Fuji Dakimakura opened pre-orders for the official body pillow cover made in collaboration with Nihon Falcom.
In December 2021, Fuji Dakimakura held a quick poll asking which attires fans would like to see in a Rean Schwarzer dakimakura cover. The store has since revealed that the traveling outfit from the second game and the instructor uniform from the third game were the top two winners. The two-sided pillow cover will feature Rean in the aforementioned costumes.
The made-to-order dakimakura cover will be 160 cm (~63 inches) tall and 50 cm (~19.7 inches) wide. Fuji Dakimakura will use 2-way tricot to create the pillow cover. It will close the pre-orders on May 9, 2022, and ship the finished products domestically in Japan in June 2022.
Fuji Dakimakura had previously sold official dakimakura covers of Ys VIII‘s Adol Christin, Dana Iclucia, and Laxia von Roswell. It also made pillow covers based on other company IPs, such as Bandai Namco’s God Eater and Code Vein.
The entire Trails of Cold Steel tetralogy is available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. An anime adaptation of the series is slated to appear in 2022. The next title starring Rean Schwarzer in The Legend of Heroes franchise is Trails into Reverie, and NIS America will release its English localization in 2023.
