Following XSEED Games’ surprise acquisition of the video game as announced in their E3 lineup, Nippon Ichi Software America have reconfirmed that they will be serving as the publisher of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel in PAL regions.
Like North America, this release will be available on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita consoles as both a physical and digital release. Unlike certain other releases however, which can take months to make their way from North America to PAL regions, the JRPG currently seems to have the same “Fall 2015” launch window. Therefore, let’s hope this will be a simultaneous release.
Official Synopsis for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel
Taking place on the same continent as the fan favorite Trails in the Sky offshoot of Nihon Falcom’s storied The Legend of Heroes franchise, Trails of Cold Steel (Sen no Kiseki in Japanese) is the first in the series to tread Erebonian soil and explore the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned powerhouse nation in detail. With a standalone story that also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series, players can enjoy school life and bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, take advantage of speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system, and take part in dramatic events that stand to shift the balance of power between Erebonia’s feuding nobility and commoners.
