The first batch of screenshots for Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki Evolution has been released. This game is a PS Vita remake of The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki, which was released in 2011 for the PSP. It is a continuation of The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki, which received a similar remake in 2012. The remake will feature improved gameplay, an arranged soundtrack, and voice acting.
Pricing information has been released as well. The game will retail for ¥5,800, but the digital version will be only ¥4,800. There will also be a limited edition which includes a mini-drama CD and a figure set featuring the characters of Lloyd Bannings and Tio Plato for ¥7,800. Finally, a special “Chara Ani Limited Box”– which contains the mini-drama CD, a soundtrack, and a figure set featuring the characters of Elie MacDowell, Randy Orlando, and Kea — will be available for ¥9,800.
The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki Evolution will be release in Japan in June of 2014. There is no information yet regarding a release in the West. I’d consider it unlikely since neither the Zero no Kiseki remake nor the original games were localized. However, artwork for Ao no Kiseki is featured in the Legend of Heroes artbooks that UDON is localizing, and the second chapter of Trails in the Sky is finally getting a Western release, so maybe the popularity of the series will pick up.
