The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak Confirms English Voice Actor for Protagonist Van Arkride

Following the recent announcement of The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak, voice actor Damien Haas revealed on a Twitch stream that he will be the English voice actor for the protagonist Van Arkride. Haas, known for his roles in games such as Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Houses, made the announcement during one of his streams. The eleventh mainline entry in the Trails series, Trails through Daybreak takes place after the events of Trails into Reverie and follows the story of Van Arkride in the Republic of Calvard.

Van Arkride, the protagonist, works as a spriggan in the tumultuous republic. This profession operates in the gray area of legality, performing tasks that legitimate avenues of employment cannot accept. The game features seamless switching between action gameplay on the field and turn-based encounters with the revamped AT (Action Time) Battle system. Orbments, a key element in the series, have also seen significant changes with the introduction of Shard Skills and the sixth-generation combat orbment, Xipha.

Trails through Daybreak introduces another innovative gameplay feature, the Alignment system. The choices made by Van will lead to alignment towards Law, Chaos, or somewhere in-between. These choices will impact future allies, antagonists, dialogue options, city status, and even job opportunities.

The highly anticipated game is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2024 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Fans of the Trails series can look forward to a compelling storyline, engaging gameplay, and the talented voice acting of Damien Haas as the protagonist Van Arkride.
