XSEED Games has recently released the announcement trailer for “The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel” for the PS3 and Vita. This is a brand new game in The Legend of Heroes series that is a traditional JRPG originally released in Japan by Nihon Falcom. This shouldn’t be confused with the recently released “Trails in the Sky Second Chapter,” which is an entirely different game on its own.
“Trails of Cold Steel” is the first in the series to tread Erebonian soil and explore the nation’s political conflicts. Players can enjoy school life, bond with students, earn new abilities in battle, take advantage of turn-based combat with the ARCUS system, and take part in dramatic events that can shift the country’s balance of power.
The standalone story also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series. Best of all, the epic storyline can be unraveled with Cross-Save functionality between the game’s PS Vita and PS3 editions, allowing players to play at home or on the go.
You can check out the announcement trailer of “Trails of Cold Steel” below, along with the story synopsis. “Among the nations on the Zemurian continent, the mighty Erebonian Empire has been quick to stake its claim militarily; yet politically, ugly bouts of internal conflict between the upper class and commoners struggling to rise to power have been steadily intensifying with each passing month. The Noble and Reformist Factions have been none too kind to one another over the years, and tensions between the two only stand to worsen if compromises aren’t reached in the very near future.
Rean Schwarzer, like any other citizen of the Imperial Nation, is no stranger to these rising conflicts: the class system has been deeply interwoven into the tapestry of Erebonian culture since the days of old. As a seventeen-year-old student preparing for his new life at Thors Military Academy, however, he notices that his crimson uniform differs from the standard outfits issued to his peers—typically green for commoners, and white for nobles.
Enter, Class VII of Thors Military Academy. For the first time in the prestigious academy’s history, rank means nothing and skill means everything. With nine hand-picked students of various backgrounds and abilities, Rean included, Class VII readies itself to dive deep into the political quagmire that threatens not only them, but the very foundations of the Empire.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel launches for the PS Vita this Winter in North America. What do you think about this?
