-

While those in PAL regions still have a fair few weeks to go until the game is launched in their respective regions by Nippon Ichi Software America, North American publisher XSEED Games have confirmed their launch of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita platforms. This is the latest English localised release of a game in Nihon Falcom’s long-running ‘Trails’ line of RPGs.

In The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, players take on the role of specially-selected elite military students at a time of great turmoil, enjoying school life and bonding with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, then utilizing those abilities via speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system.

Alongside the standard edition, XSEED Games will be offering a limited “Lionheart Edition” in stores. This set contains an artbook featuring over 100 pages of art from both this game and its upcoming 2016 sequel, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, plus a 1.5″ emblem pin representing the Erebonian Empire and a Collectible box designed to house both titles.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is also known as Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki in Japan. It is currently available on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

About 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.
