In the closing weeks of 2015, XSEED Games delivered their English-localised version of Nihon Falcom’s RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. While its gameplay may not have been the most challenging or creative on the market, it delivered a lengthy and enticing storyline which left me wanting more. Fortunately gamers didn’t have to wait all that long for its sequel, simply titled The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, to arrive on store shelves in North America.
XSEED Games have recently released The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II onto both store shelves and the digital PlayStation Store in North America – at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Those who haven’t yet purchased its predecessor can take advantage of a 50% off sale through the PlayStation Store until September 13th. As this is a sequel, transferring save data across is possible – which provides bonus stats, items and additional dialogue options.

Speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember alongside a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation across both the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.
