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!
I recently presented to you a post from the On the official XSEED blog where the developers talked about how hard it had been to localize Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter. Being a software developer myself, I love those kinds of posts.
If you recall, I played Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter a few weeks ago, and loved it from beginning to end (yup, I finished it a few days ago!).
On their official Facebook Page, XSEED Games confirmed that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel would be released THIS YEAR. To be precise, it’ll release a few days before Christmas, on December 22th!
Having just completed Trails in the Sky: SC, I’m VERY excited for this release, and I can’t wait to get my review copy for the game! Are you buying this new RPG release? Let us know in the comments below!

[PSP/Vita JRPG Review] Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter is one of the BEST RPGs in the PSP/Vita Library!
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.
