NIS America has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will be released in the US and Europe in Autumn 2019 exclusively for PS4.
The third entry in the long-running JRPG series picks up a year and a half after the conclusion to 2014’s Trails of Cold Steel 2. It also sees the return of series protagonist Rean Schwarzer who has developed from student to instructor with a new group of Class VII students at the Thors Military Academy.
Outside of the story, Trails of Cold Steel 3 will introduce entirely new locations in the Erebonian countryside, see familiar faces return while welcoming new ones too, while also further refining the combat system to include brand new features and mechanics.
Players who have missed the series so far will not have to worry about playing through two massive 40-hour RPGs in order to play the latest entry, as an interactive recap is playable at the start of the game. Nevertheless, we would encourage you to play all three if you have the time as they are a selection of excellent RPGs.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will be available exclusively on PS4 in Autumn 2019.
