Final Fantasy XV might be skipping its September release, but The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will be around to satisfy JRPG fans that month after all. In a press release sent out by XSEED today, the publisher announced that the game will be coming to the PS3 and PS Vita in North America on September 6. That’s not far off at all!
‘The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation at the conclusion of Trails of Cold Steel. 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.
Cross-Save functionality between the game’s “PS Vita” and PS3™ editions remains supported, and save data from the first game grants bonus stats and extra items. In addition, relationships cultivated during the earlier time players spent at Thors Military Academy affect future story elements and allow for more personalized conversations throughout the game.’
The game will also be coming to Europe this fall.
