The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki PlayStation 4 Japanese Release Dates Announced

Japan is getting another chance to visit Crossbell soon! The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki launch for PlayStation 4 on April 23rd and May 28th respectively. Both will be available physically and digitally in Japan for 3,800 yen ($35.01 USD).

Along with the release dates, Falcom released new details for both PlayStation 4 ports. First of all, you can use your save data from either game to unlock bonuses in the upcoming The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki. What those bonuses are, though, will be revealed at a later time.

Second, characters from The Legend of Heroes: Cold Steel series are being added to the story of Ao no Kiseki. Both story arcs run concurrently with each other; Cold Steel is set in the country of Erebonia, Ao no Kiseki in the city state of Crossbell.

Lastly, Falcom released details on the physical and digital releases of the games. Physically, The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki will have a first-print copy with a special Crossbell Police Department’s Special Support Section sleeve jacket called “Crossbell BLUE Package.” On the other hand, Ao no Kiseki will receive a first-print “Demiourgos Package” sleeve jacket based on events in the story. Digitally, purchasing both games early rewards players with a PlayStation 4 theme and avatar set.

Neither Zero no Kiseki or Ao no Kiseki have been translated officially into English, and no localization announcement for the PlayStation 4 ports have been made as of yet.
