Following the announcement of the upcoming western release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, NIS America released a stylish trailer.
The trailer finally marks a reveal that many fans of the series have been waiting for a long time and features familiar heroes whose adventures will finally come to a (temporary) conclusion in Eglish.
You can watch it below.
We already know that the game will come to PS4 in the fall of 2020, while fans on PC and Nintendo Switch will have to wait for 2021.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s how NIS America describes it officially.
The Erebonian Empire is on the brink of all-out war!
Taking place shortly after the ending of Trails of Cold Steel III, the heroes of Class VII find themselves against the full force of the Empire in an attempt to stop its path of total domination. Further, the hero of the Erebonian Civil War and Class VII’s instructor, Rean Schwarzer, has gone missing. Now, the students of Class VII, old and new, must unite with heroes from all over the continent to create the only chance the world has to be spared from total destruction.
- The Ultimate Class Reunion – Boasting the largest roster in series history, heroes from all over seek to join the cause! The heroes of Class VII unite with Crossbell’s Special Support Section and even the heroes of Liberl.
- Battle Most Refined – New and returning systems join the already polished combat of The Legend of Heroes series, including the ability to summon giant mechs to the field for devastating attacks, use Auto Battle for more expedient combat, and utilize Lost Arts, the most powerful Orbal magic capable of turning the tide of battle.
- Pursuits of the War Weary – In between epic battles, catch a breather with a number of mini-games including returning favorites like Vantage Master, fishing and puzzle games! And introducing new pursuits like Poker, Blackjack, and the Horror Coaster.
Alongside the news we also get to take a look at two different editions. The physical “Frontline Edition” and the Limited Edition, which is priced at $99.99.
In the meanwhile, Nihon Falcom is already working on the next game of the franchise, titled Hajimari no Kiseki. Hopefully, this one won’t take as long to come west.
