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!
Yesterday, Ceidz and I reviewed Trails of Cold Steel and loved it! We thought that if you were still on the fence and hadn’t decided if you wanted to play this game, you might like to get to know more about the characters’ background information! Are you ready?
