Falcom is pretty consistent with their theater-esque parallel two-act structure they like to use in kiseki games. At the end of every first ‘act’, Falcom introduces some concept or jargon that is relatively meaningless to the main conflict of that act, but will be important in the sequel. This is usually related to the Sept-Terrion of the arc i.e. the barrier system for the Aureole or the rivalry and stage needed to reform the Great One. In Kuro no Kiseki, this is the 5 Demon Lords which lead the 77 Devils.
One of the Hallmarks of the Trails series of video games is its diverse and dynamic cast of NPCs that help the world feel vibrant and alive. Kuro no Kiseki is no exception to this rule with plenty of interesting and charming NPCs such as the eccentric taco stand girl, the train man, or the bathhouse investment consultant. Most of the time, this dialog is relatively meaningless in the grand scheme, but occasionally there will be characters that seem to be more than they initially let on.
A series of character predictions by the Falcord user Sicengamble. Not a traditional theory post, but not completely unprecedented either, especially as a fun one just before launch. So without further ado, the list:
A new year, a new game and time for a new round of predictions with the added bonus that Kuro is basically terra incognita compared to all the other games that have come out since this site got started.
This is going to be another short(er) theory that I want to get out before Kuro potentially upends all our assumptions… again. In it, I propose how McBurn came to Zemuria and how this relates to one of the most significant events of the backstory.
The core of this theory concerns the identity and origins of one of the members of Almata. After establishing this character’s true identity I attempt to expand the theory by examining other characters for potential connections.
Well, the game is about to come out so it’s time to give our predictions. I’ve written a very generalized prediction for the Calvard arc called Land of Lies; however now that we have seen (essentially) all the pre-release material and the game is about to come out, I can make more specific predictions about the narrative, character, themes, etc.
