Today, during the New Game + Expo, NIS America showcased the first English gameplay of Nihon Falcom’s JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV.
The gameplay showcases our familiar heroes from the earlier games of the series. It was played on PS4, which is the first platform getting the game later this year.
While this is pretty spoiler-free for those who already played the first three games of the series, you may want to skip the video if you haven’t finished The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III.
You can enjoy the video presented during the show below.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV releases on which will be October 27, 2020. The Nintendo Switch and PC versions are still marked for a generic “2021” launch.
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.
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.
