Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations
Day Twelve: Today’s illustration depicts a big part of the holidays and a big part of jRPGs… Shopping! Fun-fact: I’m pretty sure the characters are carrying the in-game equivalent of a bucket of KFC, which is a traditional Christmas Eve meal in Japan. No, I’m serious. Check this out. I totally love it…!
Oh, and speaking of which, these folks are Joshua Bright and Estelle Bright from the “Legend of Heroes” games, and they’ll be making their way into your homes (hopefully!) this January with Legend of Heroes: The Characters and Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations, which we’re very excited to publish! These books weigh in at over 250 pages each, and include a startling amount of material from this series of games. If you’ve ever been a fan of jRPGs or this series in particular, you’ll want to check these out!
Note: We’ve rotated this page 90 degrees to ‘read’ better online, but it appears vertically in the printed book.
The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations weighs in at 272 pages, and is comprised entirely of gorgeous, fully-rendered artwork created for the games, including pin-ups, story artwork, advertising art, and much more. This book has been completely translated into English, and the artwork contained within covers the games Trails of Blue, Trails of Zero, and the Trails in the Sky trilogy, as well as the “Trails” artworks from the spin-off game “Ys vs. Trails in the Sky: Alternative Saga.”
