The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is not only the latest within the Trails series (as far as the West goes, anyway), but it’s also quite possibly the greatest. Falcom has shown that they’re capable of constantly pushing themselves in order to bring about a product that’s just as good—or perhaps even better—than their last, and that’s certainly the case with this game. The Trails series has certainly spoiled us thus far with its dazzling one-two punch of addictive gameplay and intriguing narrative, and I, for one, am very excited to see how Rean’s journey ends in Trails of Cold Steel IV.

It’s easy to say a sequel like Cold Steel III is “more of that thing before,” but as true as it is, that betrays just how much more that is here. These games are enormous, and the developers and writers consistently delivering on the scale they do is impressive every time. While the mechanical and technical changes are small and iterative, there’s really no need for anything more. This is another massive story to dig into, that’s just as fruitful and compelling as the stories before it.

To say this is technically the “weakest” entrant in the series to date, and yet still demonstrates how many steps ahead these games are compared to their contemporaries, should give you a sizeable hint as to how highly recommended this series will continue to be. It may not achieve the same immediate and resounding brilliance as its predecessors, but The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is brilliant nonetheless. By modern design standards, albeit not a graphical showcase, one of the best examples of what JRPGs can be.
