The Legend of Heroes: Sen No Kiseki Introduces School Life with Info and Screenshots

Nihon Falcom released today a new batch of information and screenshots about the upcoming PS3/PS Vita JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, that will be released in Japan on September the 26th.

The game is set in an academy, which is actually more similar to a Japanese high school. Today we get to learn more about school-related activities.

There will be actual classes in the game, based on subjects like history, military science and cooking. The protagonist Rean will at times be asked to respond to questions based on the classes (pretty much like it happened in Persona 4), raising his grades if he responds correctly.

There will also be extracurricular activities to perform on holidays and club activities. Some of them have the purpose of deepening the relationship between Rean and other characters.

One of the most important school activity is a practical test, that is basically a series of mock battles against other students. The battles will be 2 vs 2.

School activities will be graded and will allow rean to accumulate AP (Academic Points), growing through 15 different ranks. By ammassing AP and fulfilling certain unspecified conditions it’s possible to earn four different “Lion’s Head” medals, that can be worn as accessories.

Below you can enjoy a gallery with all the screenshots released today.

    I feel so sad when I read articles like these. Seeing a game I know I’ll absolutely love but the chances of it getting localized is low

      I never stop hoping mate 😀

      This is a big project with Nihon Falcom, and it’s gonna be on PS3, meaning that it’s more viable for localization than the previous legend of heroes games 😀

        We can only hope. At the very least, I’ll be able to use games like this when arguing the point about weapon variety in RPGs. (Sword & Board is, imo, the most boring way to equip a character).

        The flood of JRPG’s coming out lately that rarely get localized doesn’t help. But you’re right hope can’t be lost. I just fell in love with school type settings ever since I played MK.

      Same here. I still think they should make in game text easy to edit, ( seperate subtitle file , etc ) so that games that get no western release can have easy fan subs 🙂
