XSEED Games today announced that the sequel in the beloved Nihon Falcom-developed JRPG series, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, is available now for PS4 in North America. The game releases this Friday, June 7, in Europe and Australia.
Players will be able to pick up where the story left off, with the option to transfer save data from the PS4, PS3 or PS Vita versions of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel to The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. Doing so will grant bonuses to those who accomplished various goals in the first title, allowing players to see the results of some of their earlier choices and accomplishments while playing the sequel.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II gives players the chance to continue an upgraded version of this brilliant JRPG adventure on the PS4.

Speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember alongside a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation across both the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.
