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!

Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter is the direct sequel to Trails in the Sky, which released on the PSP in 2011. It follows the story of Estelle, Joshua and the friends they made during the previous game. This game was developed by Nihon Falcom (creators of the very good Ys: Memories of Celceta, along with many other awesome games) and was localized by XSEED Games.
Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter (SC) released last week, which is great news for RPG fans! We’re currently working on a review for the game, and this got me thinking about what XSEED said about the problems they ran into for the localization of the game.
This very interesting post on Kotaku, talks about most of the problems they ran into during the localization for the game from Japanese to English. Things were so bad, the whole project almost got canceled! Click after the break to learn more about what happened.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive is the latest game in the Corpse Party series that is set in a hellish elementary school called Heavenly Host which resides in an alternative dimension. This time, Ayumi Shinozaki (one of the survivors from the previous adventures) decides to go back to said school to save her friends who died there.
Take note that this game depicts explicit violence and is for a mature audience.
