The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is a new Japanese-RPG from Nihon Falcom and has been localized by XSEED, the same studio who gave us the excellent Action-RPG Ys series, and who also released Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter just a few weeks ago.
Trails games usually come in trilogies, and this is also the case for the game we’re about to review. Cold Steel is the first in this new trilogy, and thankfully the localization for Cold Steel II has already been confirmed. Cold Steel III production has just begun in Japan, which is great news, but that means it will take at least another year before we see it. It is also worth noting that any The Legend of Heroes sub-series can be played in any order (Trails in the Sky is one story, Trails of Cold Steel is another one) so you won’t miss out on any details by starting one before the other!
This is my first Double Review, and I was pretty excited to do it for a game like Trails of Cold Steel which I’ve been waiting for a while now. If you like long JRPGs, then sit back and enjoy this review!
