[PS3 JRPG Review] The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (EU Version)

January 15, 2016 |


This is a review for the European version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. The content of both European and American version of this game are exactly the same, and for a second opinion you can check our double-review feature for the North American version that is available right here.

Trails of Cold Steel is the latest in the Legend of Heroes subseries of games called Trails franchise, a series created by Nihon Falcom that dates all the way back to as early as 1989 when the original Legend of Heroes game came out in Japan. Since then there has been a steady stream of games from the series, particularly in the last decade. Trails of Cold Steel (ToCS) is the latest one to make the jump to the west. Originally released in September of 2013 in Japan, the translated version that released in late December in North America finally comes to Europe by way of NIS America!

In all honesty, before doing this review, my knowledge of the Trails series was limited only to Trails in the Sky, which was released on PC back in 2014 (originally released in Japan in 2004). Though I only came across it in passing, it did, however, have a name that stuck with me only because it becomes a very interesting game ever when you use its Acronym as you giggle like a school boy. But enough of that, it is time to play Trails of Cold Steel!

[PS3/Vita Double Review] The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

December 23, 2015 |


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!

December 21, 2015 |

2015 is almost over, so it’s already time for this epic question: “What were our best games this year”? We deliberated for a while and came up with a list that includes what we think are the best games of the year.

In this first post (out of three!), we’ll detail the best games we played in 2015 as well as some others we have yet to enjoy. Please keep in mind that we didn’t play all of this year’s releases and that we’ll focus on PlayStation 3 games for this post. We’re doing a second one featuring the best of the Vita games that will release tomorrow, and a third one detailing our best PS4 games that will go live on Wednesday.
