Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III Announced

While it’s not part of an extremely popular series, many fans of the long-running Legend of Heroes JRPG series will be happy to know that the latest entry is finally coming along as indicated by the launch of its official Japanese site. Nihon Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III once again follows Trails of Cold Steel protagonist Rean Schwarzer and his friends on a new adventure full of danger, battle, but also bonding. Fans of the meticulous and dedicated world-building found in the Legend of Heroes series will have already taken note. We thought Trails of Cold Steel II was very good, if that is any indication of the potential of quality this new title has going for it. It is important to note, however, that Trails of Cold Steel III is currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive, whereas its predecessors landed on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

See some initial screenshots of the game below. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is slated for release in Japan sometime next year.
