Today Nihon Falcom announced with a press release that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series will get an anime adaptation.
The animation project will be a TV series based on the original story of the games and focusing on the western part of the continent of Zemuria.
It will broadcast in Japan in 2022.
It will be handled for Falcom as a collaboration between UserJoy Technology (that has worked with the developer in Taiwan and Asian territories before), Funimation, NADA Holdings, and SYOU.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is part of the popular Trails (Kiseki) JRPG series. It debuted in 2013 for PS3 and PS Vita and it then received three sequels, culminating with The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV that has just been released in the west (and is still waiting Nintendo Switch and PC releases following the version on PS4)
In the meanwhile, Nihon Falcom already released in Japan next game of the franchise, titled Hajimari no Kiseki, and just announced the one coming after, The Legend of Heroes: Kuro No Kiseki.
At the moment, further details about the anime series have not been disclosed, and we have not seen any image either. Considering that the debut is still a year away, we’ll likely have to wait a while longer to see more.
