At Thors Military Academy, Erebonia’s best and brightest learn everything from the art of war to the liberal arts. First-year Rean Schwarzer learns that he’s been selected as a member of Class VII, which controversially includes both nobles and commoners. But they’ll need to deal with more than just class warfare—they’ll need to safeguard their country from those who would plunge it into chaos.

Overall, this is one of those game series that I missed completely, but it is such a good game series and I am glad they are launching it on new gen consoles. The amount of good RPGs out there today is dwindling, however, you can always count on some good JRPGs to be out there ripe for the picking. Listed at $49.99USD this is a great pickup for any fans of the genre or the series itself.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel may not be able to hide its grey hairs any longer, but age is the only possibly negative thing that this game has going for it. Having already been a phenomenal game upon its initial release, and only finding itself bolstered even further after receiving a nice little care package of quality of life improvements, Trails of Cold Steel isn’t a game that you want to skip out on if you’re even remotely interested in JRPGs — and the best is still yet to come!
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel on PS4 is the best value proposition for this game on any platform. It is a massive improvement over the PS3 and PS Vita version and it even includes some unexpected things like dual audio. When I picture what I’d want for a remaster or port of a game I love, XSEED delivered in spades with this release. It even has a SteelBook with the physical release. I can’t wait to replay Trails of Cold Steel II when it releases on PS4 before Trails of Cold Steel III sees a release in the West later this year. I will never hesitate to go back to a game with these fantastic characters.
