Today, during the New Game + Expo, NIS America announced the first western release date of Nihon Falcom’s JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV.
I say “the first” because for now we only know the release date for PS4, which will be October 27, 2020. The Nintendo Switch and PC versions are still framed as a generic “2021” release.
You can enjoy the trailer presented during the show below.
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.
