To be followed by a release in Australia and New Zealand soon, Nippon Ichi Software America have confirmed that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel has begun rolling out onto the PlayStation Store (Digitally) and store shelves in PAL regions. This follows the RPG’s release in North America last December, which was handled by XSEED Games.

Official Blurb on 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.
