XSEED Games announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is coming to PC on the 2nd of August via Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle. Originally released for PS3 and PS Vita, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will make its debut on PC with visual enhancements and over 5,000 new lines of English voiceover dialogue.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel builds on Nihon Falcom’s beloved Trails franchise, improving on the series’ formula while delivering an expertly told, standalone narrative that both series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy. Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel further explores Erebonia and gives players a chance to delve deep into the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned and powerful empire.
Players take on the role of elite military students at a time of great turmoil, who enjoy school life as they bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, and then utilize those abilities via tactical turn-based combat. In between skirmishes, players can upgrade their party members with the “ARCUS” system – a streamlined version of the classic “Orbment” magic system from previous titles – allowing for greater access to abilities and quicker customization.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will be available with a launch week discount of 10% off the regular price of $39.99/€39.99/£29.99.
