The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki will be released for PlayStation 4 tomorrow in Japan, but there’s a good chance that it will eventually come to Nintendo Switch. Nihon Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo shared more in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine (via ryokutya2089).
Here are some quotes from Toshihiro Kondo in the interview:
- “For Kuro no Kiseki on PS5 and Switch, I can’t say anything concrete for now, but it’s something I’d like to do in the near future. The PS5 version because of the overseas demand, and Switch since it’s been getting more Falcom titles.”
- “It will not have a major update like the Extra Chapter for The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie. We’re immediately starting development on the next Trails game.”
- “I have a feeling that the ‘Republic’ (Calvard Republic) part won’t end with just two titles.”
In short, Falcom acknowledges that there’s demand from fans overseas for a PS5 version of The Legend of Kuro no Kiseki, but the company also wants to keep the momentum going by further expanding its library of games on Switch. That means we can expect more Falcom game announcements for Switch in the near future.
Falcom has always been big on releasing games on PlayStation consoles, but we’ve been seeing more ports and remasters for the Switch in recent years. The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki hasn’t been confirmed for Switch, but it seems like there’s a good chance for it to happen soon.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki launches for PlayStation 4 in Japan on September 30, 2021.
