Falcom’s first PS4 exclusive entry in the popular “Legend of Heroes” series is finally coming stateside, courtesy of NIS America. The title originally released in Japan in September of 2017, but remained import-only for fans with no studio stepping up to localize it until now. More information to come in NIS America’s PAX South panel on January 18th.
NISA’s website for the game describes Cold Steel III as follows:
Nearly a year and a half has passed since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then. From the shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the Empire, and even the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past have given way to the embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors Military Academy, Rean has become an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus, a newly-opened academy that quickly finds itself thrust onto the national stage. It is here that he takes the lead of a brand new Class VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into an unknown future. Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization continues to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war…or perhaps something even more sinister.
Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will be releasing this fall on PlayStation 4.
