We have some new exciting information for Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II today. First, check out these English screenshots and drool at the opportunity to finally have this game in our hands.




The game is due to be released this Fall 2016 and for both the PS3 and the PS Vita. Check out the new press release information.



Press Release


Peace is but a memory.
In the wake of the Noble Faction’s occupation of Heimdallr, civil war has broken out across Erebonia. The provincial armies, loyal to the aristocracy and the Four Great Houses, have claimed many of the nation’s great cities in the name of the Noble Alliance. The Imperial Army, called back from the four corners of the Empire, has only just begun sweeping its counterattack.

After Rean managed to escape Trista with Celine and Valimar, he awakens in the mountains near his hometown uncertain what fate befell his friends, who bravely threw themselves in harm’s way to buy him time to flee.
Though the road will not be an easy one, Rean decides to take up his sword again, journeying across Erebonia with his Divine Knight, Valimar, in search of his friends from Class VII and a way to end the conflict before its price becomes far too dear…
***
Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia. The speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember together with a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation both across the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.

KEY FEATURES


A Sequel that Remembers the Past
Clear data from Trails of Cold Steel carries over, granting bonus stats and extra items, while also remembering the many relationships cultivated during earlier times spent at Thors Military Academy to allow for more personalized conversations throughout the story.


The Link System Returns with a new Overdrive Mode
Bonding with allies continues to pay off with the Combat Link System, netting a variety of combat benefits including healing, guarding, and more, while the new Overdrive mode allows linked characters to attack up to three turns in a row for new strategic battle options.


Recruit Allies from Across the Map to Prepare for War
Find and recruit dozens of fellow Thors attendees who are now scattered across the country to gain exclusive shops, goods, training modes, systems, and plenty more of the Trails series’ highly celebrated colorful dialogue.

Take to the Land and Sky in New Modes of Transportation
A personalized airship allows players to swiftly descend upon both familiar and foreign destinations, and travel on land is faster than ever between horseback riding and Angelica’s customizable orbal bike.

Lastly, we have a brand new trailer to get you even more pumped for this upcoming release from XSEED.

The sequel to last December’s massive JRPG is on its way, and looks to be just as good.

My familiarity with the first Trails of Cold Steel comes from watching our own Joe Sigadel’s Twitch stream of the game. After witnessing the opening bits of that game (including the party being dumped into an underground dungeon as their first mission) I decided to go out that night to buy the game. Sadly, due to a combination of school and work, it’s still sitting on my shelf. As such I was hesitant at first to even try playing the demo for Trails of Cold Steel II at XSEED’s booth. However, I’m certainly glad I did. The main reason why comes down to one particular character, but let’s start with some basics.




Flashy character cut ins and all return, though that’s not the best part.

Trails of Cold Steel II takes place after the first game and is a direct continuation. If you have a save file from the first game, you’ll get some bonuses I’ve been told, but your levels and stats won’t directly transfer over. This is a pretty typical JRPG but the game is massive, clocking in at over 60 hours from what I’ve been told. Combat is turn based, but has its own unique twists. For one, the turn order is displayed on the left hand side of screen. On certain turns the character or enemy that goes will get a bonus. So careful turn management can really help. Also there are two types of skills in the game: Crafts and Arts.

Crafts uses CP and seems to lean towards more physical attacks that come out instantly. Arts use SP and take a turn to charge. However, the effects can be pretty strong. Different attacks and skills have different ranges. Some hit in a line, others in an area. In addition, you can always use a turn to move a character out of the way of an attack if you know one is coming. So there’s a lot of depth to the actual combat system. All of this was present in the original, so if you played that you’re already familiar with how things work. Now that I’ve explained all that, let me explain my experience.




Time magic is always one of those things that’s hard to explain. Then again, in this game there’s a character who can shoot bullets that will speed up the party.

I picked up where someone else had left off in middle of some snowy mountains. My main goal was to just wander around and get a feel for the combat system so I could avoid spoilers. Upon entering my first fight, I suddenly realized I had a maid in my party. And this where this game got ridiculously awesome. Sharon is not just a maid. She is this game’s version of your “Ninja Assassin Combat Maid” that we’ve all no doubt seen in various anime. That is a combination that I always adore and Sharon was no exception. In fact, one of her special moves is to prepare tea for the party in the middle of combat, complete with a set table. I am not kidding. Things like this are why I love Japanese games. Sharon is very much a proficient fighter though. I spent quite a lot of time toying with her various moves and they are all very useful. One in particular uses threads to draw a group of enemies in close and slash at them with a dagger. This does move the enemies close to her, but also sets them up for the next character to use an area special to really lay on the hurt. It’s a great example of how you can use different character’s abilities to help set up attacks for other party members. Strategy is a big part of the game and utilizing all your abilities will really help. After playing around with a few more fights and seeing all of Sharon’s abilities, I ended my playthrough. That and the show floor was going to close in a few minutes so I didn’t have a lot of time. So, my final thoughts?


See, told you she served tea in the middle of a fight.

If you liked the first game, this is a no brainer. Trails of Cold Steel II is more of the same, which is always risky. But when more of the same is this good, I can’t really complain. Also, with characters as diverse as Sharon, I can only imagine what the other cast is going to be like. I definitely need to play the first one to prepare for this, but even still I think I’m going to pick this up Day 1 as well. It’s not a question of if I’ll be playing this, just when. In the meantime check our our review of the first game if you haven’t played it yet to see what you’ve been missing.

Falcom CEO thinking about making The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III a PS4-exclusive

Published 4 hours ago. 416 comments.

Some tidbits from a new Dengeki PlayStation interview.



The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation features an interview with Falcom president and CEO Toshihiro Kondo, who disucsses a bit about the upcoming The Legend of Herores: Trails of Cold Steel III.


Get the tidbits below.
It feels as if the amount of titles Falcom puts out has decreased since the old days. Is that because development on a single game started taking more time?
“That’s correct, but that doesn’t mean the challenging spirit of the old days has disappeared. In interviews with employees nowadays, everyone has original ideas, like ‘I want to make a smartphone app,’ and ‘I want to make a Magical Alisa game.'”
What do you, President Kondo, want to take on?
Sorcerian. I’ve been saying it for a half a year already. I’ve been thinking about whether or not we can do it in the current era. There are a lot of platforms to challenge elsewhere, too, like PlayStation VR.”
Can you give us an update on The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III?
“Right now work is heavily underway. We plan to start going at full scale this summer, but we’ve already completed the basic foundation. We’re also making new models for Rean and company. However, for those concerned about hardware, there are a lot of PS Vita users when it comes to the Trails series. We’re currently considering whether to do a PlayStation 4-exclusive or to make it cross-platform with PS Vita.”
Is the protagonist still Rean?
“The protagonist and story outline have been decided. Please look forward to what kind of characters will appear.”
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

XSEED Games has recently launched the official website for the sequel to last years Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel,

Trails of Cold Steel II.

You can check it out here.
The Courageous
During a certain point in the story, the Imperial family’s high-speed cruiser known as the Courageous becomes the home base for Rean and the other members of Class VII. The war may continue to rage on across the land below, but thanks to this brand new mode of transportation, Class VII can travel anywhere they please in record time to help the citizens of Erebonia through these trying times.
Quests
Between major operations, Class VII will receive special requests from both the acting captain of the Courageous and a certain handsome Erebonian gentleman who is all about promoting love and peace. Ranging from monster extermination to simply finding some way to make the lives of Erebonian citizens easier during wartime, completing these quests will help accumulate Academic Points (AP), which will go towards your overall grade and earn you special rewards during specific points in the story.
Recruiting Thors Students
Dozens of students met over the course of Rean’s year at Thors Military Academy are now scattered across eastern Erebonia, and each of them are contributing what they can to make the civil war come to an end that much sooner. Finding and recruiting these students to join Class VII’s efforts aboard the Courageous will open up brand new shops, features, and challenges, as well as give the Courageous plenty of life and unique conversation.
Like with the members of Class VII and their supporters, chatting with these students throughout the story will add new information about them in the Character section of the notebook.
Facilities
From shops filled with rare accessories to libraries to challenges that test your aptitude in battle, recruiting Thors students will open up plenty of new facilities aboard the Courageous. Some students will join naturally over the course of the story, while other students need to be specifically sought out, so keep an eye out for any wandering students across the land in order to equip Class VII with the best stuff that mira can buy.
Trails of Cold Steel II is scheduled to launch on September 6 of this year for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America.

More on the recently confirmed PlayStation 4 title.

The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation has an interview with Nihon Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo on the newly revealed The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2017.


Get the tidbits below.
Where does the story of Trails of Cold Steel III start from?

“It starts a year and a half after the end of Trails of Cold Steel II. The members of Class VII, including the protagonist Rean, have graduated from the military academy and are each walking their own path. While the situation where Rean is being used by Osborne in Trails of Cold Steel II continues, he takes a new step at the beginning of Trails of Cold Steel III.
“This time, we’ll depict the western side of the empire, and you can also go to Byronia Island where there is a giant god statue similar to the one in Nord.


“The Trails in the Sky characters from Liberl Kingdom will appear again and join the party, and you’ll link up with a certain person from Trails in the Zero. The mystery of Rean’s birth will also be revealed in this game.”


Regarding Battle Scenes

“The fundamental parts will not change, but one of the issues of command battles to be dealt with is that the battle progression seems slow. Since we’re on PlayStation 4 and have buttons, we thought why not directly assign [actions] to each button, so that’s what it became. It’s still in development, so it’s not yet fixed if it will be as you see it, but we’re shooting for something intuitive that progresses with the simple push of a button.


“Also, we’re thinking about a format that seamlessly shifts to battles from the map. Movement is as it was before, and your positional relation is important. We’re trying to properly preserve the idea of distance, such as being surrounded, at times you’re back-attacked.


“A new special command called ‘Brave Order’ is also being prepared.”


Regarding the Divine Knight System

“It’s still in development. It was a strong element of event battles in the previous game, but this time it will be incorporated as one of the game systems. We’re thinking about battles against several enemies.”
Thanks, Hachima Kikou and Dengeki Online.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III introduces prologue, first characters
Published 11 hours ago. 162 comments.
Quote:
New information in this week's game magazines.






The latest issues of Weekly Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation have four-page and six-page features on The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, respectively.






Several details from the magazine coverage has leaked out, including information on the prologue, characters, and a few other tidbits.
Get the roundup below.
■ Prologue (A Rough Summary)
Septian Calendar 1206, spring. A year-and-a-half after the civil war, the Erebonian Empire made Crossbell into a Province, and several months later also annexed North Ambria Province to become the continent’s largest nation, significantly exceeding its longtime enemy, the Calvard Republic.






Meanwhile, the Imperial Government has centralized its power, and new problems of chaos and weakening arose in the areas once ruled by nobles. At the same time, the secret society Ouroboros broke its silence and began to move in secret in order blend in with the activities of the Jaeger Corps and the Calvard Republic.




Concurrently, Rean lands in the Imperial western suburb of Reaves. After graduating from the Military Academy, he began to walk the path of a teacher. Thors has transformed into a full-fledged military school due to the crown prince’s enrollment. In contrast to the main school, there is the “Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch,” which accepts noble children and foreigners who for some reason didn’t make the cut. The branch headmaster is the former Noble Alliance commander-in-chief. Among the three classes, Rean is in charge of the Class VII “Special Duty Division.”

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III details prologue, main characters, more
Published 21 hours ago. 224 comments.

Quote:
PlayStation 4 RPG sequel due out this fall in Japan.






Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the prologue, characters Rean Schwarzer, Kurt Vander, Juna Crawford, and Altina, and some keywords.




Get the details below.
■ Prologue
“You, you guys walk looking straight ahead…”
“Just go earnestly, single-mindedly forward…”
—Those words determined their perseverance and resolution.


Septian Calendar 1206, spring—nearly a year-and-a-half after the civil war. The Erebonian Empire—which annexed the continent’s greatest trade city, Crossbell State, and a few months later also annexed the North Ambria State—has significantly exceeded its longtime rival, the Calvard Republic, and in both reality and in name has become the continent’s greatest nation.




On the other hand, the centralization of power has accelerated by way of the Imperial government, and by unifying the tax system the areas ruled by nobles were disturbed and weakened. New problems were also born.
Meanwhile, the secret society “Ouroboros,” which maneuvered in secret during the civil war, broke its silence and began to move behind closed doors as to blend in with the activities of the Jaeger Corps and the Republic.




At the same time, a black-haired young man arrives in the Imperial western suburb of Reaves. Rean Schwarzer, the “Ashen Chevalier.” As a student, he was the “young hero” who contributed to the end of the civil war by piloting the Ashen Knight, Valimar, and even played an active role in the Crossbell Front and Northern War—.
He just graduated from the prestigious Thors Military Academy in February, but chooses the new path of an “instructor” and takes up a new post at a certain new school—-Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.




In contrast to the main school, which became a full-fledged military school after the enrollment of the crown prince, the Branch School accepts special case nobles, problem children, foreigners, and the like. The headmaster served as a general commander of the old Noble Alliance—.
Among the three classes that make up the school, there is Class VII, “Special Duty Division”—a special duty class with a small number of students in which Rean serves as the instructort.




■ Characters


Rean Schwarzer


“We’re newcomers all the same. Let’s sweat and improve together as friends.”
  • Age: 20
  • Weapon: Long sword








A young man who was enrolled at Thors Military Academy in the special division class, Class VII, and the Awakener of the Ashen Knight, Valimar.




A year-and-a-half ago, he contributed his services to the Erebonian Empire civil war, to the annexation of Crossbell State, and then to the annexation of North Ambria State, and became a hero in the Empire known as the Ashen Chevalier.




After graduating from the Military Academy, the government strongly urged him to join the Imperial army, but he politely refused. In order to preserve the spirit of Thors, and more than that in order to refrain from using the Ashen Knight Valimar or his own power, he chooses to take on the job of a n instructor at the “II Branch School,” a school with an interesting backstory that is newly established in the western suburbs of the Imperial capital.

Juna Crawford
“I can’t lose to the Imperials until I achieve results with Class VII!”
  • Age: 17
  • Weapon: Gun breaker (a tonfa-and-gun combination that can strike and shoot)









A lively girl from the old Crossbell State filled with a sense of justice.






Admiring the work of the Crossbell Police “Special Support Section,” which has resolved various difficult cases, she successfully enters the police academy, but her dreams were crushed after Crossbell is occupied by the Erebonian Empire.




Meanwhile, Juna, who received a proposal from a certain someone, decides to enter the “Thors II Branch School” in order to ascertain the current condition of the Empire as an “aggressor nation,” and to show her pride as a Crossbell citizen.









Kurt Vander
“The Eight Leaves One Blade-style Professor Schwarzer, huh?… I honestly haven’t heard of him.”
  • Age: 17
  • Weapon: Dual swords (huge)







A smart, handsome young man born to the Vander family, which is known as the military family of the Empire. He has bluish-gray hair, which is unusual among his family.
He possesses masterful skills in dual swordsmanship and was filled with a sense of duty to protect the Imperial family as a member of the Vander family, but after the civil war ended, the family was dismissed of its employment as protection for the Imperial family as a result of “Blood and Iron Chancellor” Giliath Osbourne’s tactics, and he lost his goal.






Following his disappointment, he tried to turn down his admission to Thors Military Academy, but after a recommendation from his older brother Mueller, he hesitantly walks the path to the “II Branch School.”





Altina Orion
“Since you’ve joined the branch school, I think ‘Professor Rean’s Class’ is appropriate.”
  • Age: 14?
  • Weapon: Claimh=Solais





A girl who belongs to the Imperial Intelligence Agency, goes by the code-name “Black Rabbit,” and who lacks emotion. She uses a state-of-the-art combat shell called “Claimh=Solais,” and during the civil war was doing special work in various places as a “fake” who deceived the Noble Alliance.
Since the end of the civil war, she has been carrying out various missions for the Intelligence Agency, and monitoring the “Ashen Chevalier” Rean Schwarzer’s actions in order to support his mission as a partner.
Following Rean’s inauguration as an instructor, Altina is also dispatched to the “II Branch School” as a “student”…

■ Keywords
Erebonian Empire






Located in the western part of the continent Zemuria, Erebonia is a giant military nation.


Though a short civil war caused conflict between the traditional conservative forces of the “Noble Faction” and the emerging powers of the “Reformist Faction,” the situation was resolved after the arrest of the Noble Faction leader and the dissolution of the Noble Alliance.




Afterwards, under the leadership of Giliath Osbourne, the leader of the Reformist Faction and the Imperial government representative, the Empire is using its powerful military strength to rapidly press forward with invasions and territorial expansions to its surrounding areas such as Crossbell State and North Ambria.




Crossbell State




A trade city developed in the space between the Erebonian Empire and Calvard Republic. It was annexed by the Empire one year ago and is under the rule of Imperial noble governor-general Rufus Albarea.


Although its function as a center for trade and finance is now returning, the tension immediately following the annexation have yet to be resolved, and rumors of a resistance for Crossbell’s liberation have started to circulate.


Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School





Following the transformation of the Empire’s prestigious Thors Military Academy into the full-fledged military school of the Imperial Army of Erebonia, a new branch school was established in the western suburbs of the Empire.




It is a gathering of various capable persons, including noble children in difficult positions, foreigners, those born in Crossbell State, those who played a role in the Northern War, renown scholars with the ability to lead, and extremely exceptional staff such as Rean Schwarzer, who is known as a young hero and goes into teaching.




There are six classes in the main school, Classes I to VI, and three classes in the Branch School, the “Tactics Division” (Class VIII), “Accounting Division” (Class IX), and the class led by Rean, the “Special Duty Division” (Class VII).




Special Duty Division (Class VII)



A special class at the Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School where Rean Schwarzer serves as an instructor.


Led by instructor Rean himself, the class is expected to work as a special platoon that will accomplish various objectives. For that reason, it is a small class made up of only three people: Juna, Kurt, and Altina.


Vander Family

The military family in charge of the protection of the Arnor Imperial family. It is also renown as the family that inherits the “Vander Style,” one of the two major swordsmanship styles passed down in the Erebonian Empire. The family has produced many capable soldiers, such as Mueller, who is a childhood friend and body guard of the Imperial family’s Prince Olivert, and Lieutenant-General Zechs, who leads the Imperial Army of Erebonia’s 3rd Panzer Division.


Claimh=Solais

A state-of-the-art model of the weapon and combat shell used by some within the Erebonian Empire. Not only does it excel as a weapon, it can communicate with its user in a special language, etc. There are many mysteries that surround it. Millium, who shares the last name Orion with Altina, uses a white isomorphic machine called “Airgetlam.”
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan this fall.

Friday, April 7th, 2017
Along with some exclusive PC content.

Friday, April 7th, 2017




Xseed Games has recently revealed that not only will they will releasing a PC version of Trails of Cold Steel, but its release will coincide with the release of Trails in the Sky The 3rd which they reaffirmed. The 3rd will be released on May 3rd of this year for PC via Steam, GOG.com, and The Humble Store by Humble Bundle which will be offered at 10% off its price for the first week after launch. While Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will be arriving on PC this Summer with over 5,000 new lines of voiceover dialogue.
About The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel
Originally released for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system in 2015, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will make its debut on Windows PC this summer with over 5,000 new lines of voiceover dialogue (approximately a 50% increase).

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel builds on Nihon Falcom’s beloved Trails franchise, improving on the series’ formula while delivering an expertly told, standalone narrative that both series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy. Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel further explores Erebonia and gives players a chance to delve deep into the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned and powerful empire. Players take on the role of elite military students at a time of great turmoil, who enjoy school life as they bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, and then utilize those abilities via tactical turn-based combat. In between skirmishes, players can upgrade their party members with the “ARCUS” system – a streamlined version of the classic “Orbment” magic system from previous titles – allowing for greater access to abilities and quicker customization.
About The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd
Half a year after the events of Trails in the Sky Second Chapter, Liberl has settled into peace once again—but even during peaceful times, there are many among the distinguished and fortunate burning with greed thanks to the influence of ancient artifacts. Most of the population remains unaware of their abuses of power, but to the most enigmatic order of the beloved Septian Church, the Gralsritter, snuffing out these would-be villains and claiming artifacts in their name is as everyday as professing one’s faith in the Goddess.

On the eve of another successfully completed mission, high-ranking member Father Kevin Graham is immediately assigned to retrieve one more artifact that rests beneath Grancel Cathedral. What’s more, even though this is a task he could easily complete on his own, he must reluctantly do so in partnership with his newest recruit, rookie Gralsritter and childhood friend Sister Ries Argent. Thus begins the start of a routine mission that becomes anything but, delving into a new and mysterious realm that follows an unnaturally strict set of rules: Phantasma. Therein, the history of the Septian Church and the pasts of the many familiar faces who took up arms for the sake of Liberl’s future will be laid bare – and some may have been better off staying forever sealed behind closed doors.
Widely considered the most challenging title in the series, players are encouraged to iterate upon the combat style they’ve come to know in the 3rd’s predecessors by either enjoying its in-depth story on Easy or crying with frustration on its unforgiving Nightmare difficulty. The brilliant music that the Trails in the Sky series is known for also returns, adding dozens of memorable new tracks as players work their way through the mysterious new realm of Phantasma.

Meet the upcoming sequel's two latest characters.


Ads by Kiosked




Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the new characters Musse Egret and Ash Carbide, and the provincial town of Reaves.




Get the details below.



■ Characters
Musse Egret


“How do you do, Professor Rean? I am inexperienced, but I look forward to your class.”
  • Age: 16
  • Weapon: Magical Carbine
Ads by Kiosked




A girl characterized by elegant and bewitching behavior, born to the noble family of count Egret in the western part of the Empire.




She is enrolled in “Class IX: Accounting Division.”
Although she receives good grades and has the grace of a noble’s daughter, there is something unfathomable about her, as she tries to seduce newcomer professor Rean at every opportunity.


She previously attended Saint Astraia Girls’ School in the Imperial capital, but dropped out after the civil war due to various circumstances.




Half a year later, and suddenly aspiring to walk the path of a soldier, she is admitted to attend Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.



Ads by Kiosked


Ash Carbide
“Does it feel good to ride around in The Ashen Toy and work as a government dog?”
  • Age: 17
  • Weapon: Variable Axe







A young man who grew up in the slums of the entertainment capital in the western part of the Empire, who at first glance is somewhat shady and impudent.
He is enrolled in “Class VIII: Tactics Division.”




During the civil war, he formed a team of hooligans, and nearly killed the brigand that attacked the entertainment capital while fighting to repel them—to the point that even the Imperial Army of Erebonia and Bracer Guild acknowledged his prowess.




However, he turned down all of their solicitations, and instead enrolls in Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School under the recommendation of someone who knows “the past” lost in his childhood.




He has a large build, but a physique flexible as a leopard, and can even bring down higher ranking opponents with his underhanded tactics.




For some reason, he is provocative towards professor Rean, picking a fight at every opportunity.







■ World
Reaves
A scenic neighboring town where Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School is newly established, located in the western outskirts of Erebonian Empire capital Heimdallr.
A certain Baron once ruled the area, but has since fallen, and after that it was provisionally treated as an Imperial territory.
Although it was not damaged much during the civil war that occurred in the Empire, there are residents who have lost their families, and the establishment of Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School has become a complicated thought.
On the other hand, the residents are warmly welcoming the students, and those who’ve moved here are also opening new stores.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan this fall.

Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the new characters Aurelia Le Guin, Towa Herschel, and Michael.




Get the details below.
■ Characters


Aurelia Le Guin


“It is good to show the young birds the spirit of the Ashen Chevalier as much as possible.”
  • Age: 32









A woman who at a young age became fully proficient in the two major schools of swordsmanship—Vander and Arseid—and is the countess of the Le Guin family also known by the name “Golden Rakshasa.”






During the civil war, she fought against the Imperial Army of Erebonia as the general commander of the Noble Alliance, launched the Panzer Soldats Unit as a new weapon with her trusted friend Wallace Bardias, and as the invincible and undefeated, continued to achieve overwhelming military results.






After the civil war, Aurelia received news of lord Cayenne’s official arrest, and withdrew to the marine fort, which is the base of western Erebonia, in response to the Imperial Army’s ceasefire.




During the Northen War a few months later, in negotiation with the Imperial government, she mobilized her army to invade North Ambria and annex it as a new Imperial territory. After that, she retired from the military and entrusted future affairs to Wallace, but for some reason assumes the office of principle at the Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.




Towa Herschel


“As a graduate of the same Thors, let’s overcome it together!”
  • Age: 21






A woman who appears young, but is brilliant and hard working, and becomes the professor in charge of “Class IX: Accounting Division” at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.




She showcased her ability as the student council president when she attended Thors Military Academy, when she dealt with the disorder at the Imperial Summer Solstice Festival, and at the Crossbell Trade Conference.




During the civil war, as the captain of the cruiser Courageous, she also contributed to the liberation of the Imperial capital with her superior commanding capability.
She was in great demand after graduation, but as a study to ascertain the “future of the Empire,” she participated in various non-governmental organization (NGO) activities all around the Empire—.


In doing this, Towa, who sensed that the Empire will soon walk a turbulent path, chooses the road of education at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School in order to preserve the spirit of Thors and improve the Empire’s situation, even if only by a little.






Michael
“Schwarzer, what is sought here is not a heroic deed by The Ashen Knight.”
  • Age: 28







A serious and straight-laced elite special duty major of the Railway Military Police.




During the civil war, he fought alongside Prince Olivert while supporting the Imperial Army that was driven into the western part of the Empire.




While he has an open rivalry against Claire Rieveldt, also known as the “Ice Maiden” and who is of the same rank as him, he seems to somewhat worry about her.




He is dispatched to Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School as a chief professor, but his purpose is to monitor Aurelia, a target of necessary caution, and uses the school as a countermeasure against Jaeger and societies that maneuver in secret.

Famitsu gives us a first look in the upcoming PS4 RPG’s new screenshots.




As previously detailed, Agate has been spending some time collecting achievements after the “Liberl Incident,” which has promoted him to an A-rank Bracer. It’s been four years since the events of Trails in the Sky, and he also seems to have grown more maturely. As for Tita, she’s now 16-years-old but her love for tinkering with machines and for Agate hasn’t changed one bit. The two have been playfully teased as a “couple with big age difference” in the past, but just what is their relationship like now?



In Trails of Cold Steel III we’ll see Tita as a disciple of G. Schmidt.

There are also plenty of new features for the game’s controls and battle system.


The battles are done in seamless fashion, and it’ll have an influence on the way you attack and defend against enemies. You can catch up on more battle system details from this week’s Japanese video game magazines in our earlier report.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails releases in Japan on September 28, 2017 for PlayStation 4.

PlayStation 4
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III details new battle system elements
Published 1 hour ago. 19 comments.

Quote:
Brave Order, Battle Mode Switch, and more.



Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the game’s new battle system elements.




Get the details below.
■ Battle System Introduction


The Most Comfortable and Intuitive AT Battle System in the Trails Series Yet







Various elements of the “AT Battle” system in which you battle according to the AT Bar (Action Turn Bar) on the left side of the screen have been brushed up. You can now control the battle more intuitively than in previous games, and enjoy a more comfortable command-based battle system.




Direct Command






Intuitively input a command with the press of a button!
The “Ring Command” system from previous games has changed to a “Direct Command” system through which actions can be input with the press of a single button. Each face button and d-pad key corresponds to a command, such as the Circle button for standard attacks, the Triangle button for Crafts, the Square button for Arts, the X button to move, the up d-pad key for an Order, the left d-pad key for Items, the down d-pad key to Exit, etc.




As for traditional commands, as you can see in the screenshots, you can check “Combat Links,” which allows characters to collaborate to attack, and the lines that indicate them. The high-power techniques known as “S-Breaks” also return.




Seamless Battles






Previously, if you touched an enemy on the field or in a dungeon, it switched to a separate battle screen, but this time battles are fought on the same terrain you travel. This can significantly affect your strategy depending on where you encounter the enemy, be it in an intricate labyrinth, on a map with differences in elevation, etc.


■ Battle Mode Switch


Juna, who is from the old Crossbell State, uses a “Gunbreaker,” which possesses both the features of a gun and of a baton, as her weapon. During battle, each time her turn comes around, you can switch between two fighting styles. Learn the characteristics of each style, and switch between fighting styles depending on the situation.


Striker Mode






Treats the Gunbreaker as if it is a baton. A close-range attack mode. It has short reach and is for single-enemy attacks, but improves Juna’s basic parameters.


Gunner Mode






A mid-range battle mode in which the primary battle function is shooting. Since standard attacks become ranged shooting attacks, you can target multiple enemies at once. Since the basic parameters are lower than in Striker Mode, caution is required against stronger enemies.


Take Advantage of Switching Modes






When taking on small fry, switch to Gunner Mode to take out enemies all at once from a distance, or when fighting against a group of monsters and strong enemies, switch to Striker Mode and attack in the frontlines alongside Rean and Kurt. Switch up Juna’s battle mode depending on the state of battle to fight more advantageously.




■ Brave Order






A new system in which you can activate an “Order” (tactical instruction) during each character’s turn, without using up their turn. When activated, the effect of the Order is granted to the entire party for a certain amount of turns.






Brave Order can be used by consuming BP (Brave Points), which build up during battle. But by switching Orders during battle, and in some cases doing things such as cancelling an Order during activation, you can use Brave Orders skillfully to proceed the battle more advantageously.


Rean’s Exclusive Brave Order: “Totsugekijin [Rekka]”






When activated, this Order raises all of the damage inflicted onto enemies, as well as increases Craft Points (CP) at the tie of activation. The amount of BP consumed to activate this Order is small.

Quote:

Altina’s Exclusive Brave Order: “Noire Crest”






An order that possesses the super powerful effect of reflecting all attacks from the enemy. However, since it consumes a lot of BP, you should activate it only when the timing calls for it.




■ Craft
Crafts are character-specific techniques that you can unleash by consuming Craft Points (CP) that build up during battle. In addition to powerful ranged attacks, there are Crafts that match the individuality of each character, such as those that grant special effects or heal allies.


Rean: “Nejigeki”


An Eight Leaves One Blade school technique in which Rean fires a huge flame after unleashing a set of consecutive attacks with a sword basked in fire. It is an excellent ranged attack.


Juna: “Close Break”






Applies an electrical current to Juna’s Gunbreaker weapon and deals electrical damage while moving in on the enemy. The electric may even inflict a “Seal” effect on the enemy.


Kurt: “Tempest Edge”




A technique in which Kurt’s dual swords are surrounded in a green aura, and he unleashes a sharp rotation slash. As a practitioner of the Vander school of swordsmanship, which is one of the two most famous styles in the Empire, you can expect a considerable deal of power. It attacks the enemies encircling Kurt, with himself as the center.


Altina: “Fragarach”


First, Altina’s Combat Shell, “Claimh=Solais,” transforms into a giant blade. Altina descends to the ground and issues commands. Claimh=Solais excitedly swings its arms downward and attacks.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.

The magazine also has information on two battle system-related elements:

  • Field Attack – By pressing the attack button on the field to attack the enemy before entering battle, you can gain the upper hand at the start of the battle.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
Update 1:35 p.m.: Here are some more details.
■ Characters
Tio Plato
16 years old. A young girl in charge of research at the Epstein Foundation’s Crossbell branch conducting research on Eion systems. After the Crossbell annexation, she temporarily returned to the Foundation’s headquarters, but decided to again return to Crossbell for the sake of her friends. While under the surveillance of the Imperial Intelligence Agency, she does her job as head of research while also working behind the scenes as a liaison.
Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo’s comments: Since she is a growing girl, she is the character with the most significant change among the members of the Special Support Section. She has a slightly mature atmosphere about her, and has also grown a bit in height. In this game, we see Tio working as head of research, as well as her interactions with other engineers. While I can’t reveal any information about weapons, given that there is a screenshot of her holding an Orbal Staff, I want you to expect her to participate in battle. This time, her Eion system has miniaturized and she does not wear a chest protector.
Randolph Orlando
24 years old. A former mercenary of the Red Constellation. The instructor in charge of Class VIII: Tactics Division at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School. After the Crossbell annexation, he was assigned to the Imperial Army of Erebeonia’s Crossbell Military Defense Force. He was moving forward with preparations for a resistance movement with his allies, but under the advice of a certain character goes to the Empire alone to find out the likelihood of Crossbell’s independence.
Other than Tio, there are also scenes of Randolph talking to Rean and Ash.
Toshihiro Kondo’s comments: As an instructor at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School, he is deeply involved in the story from the beginning of the game. To Rean, Randolph is an older colleague, but how will Randolph connect with Rean upon learning that he and Lloyd fought? As instructor of the Tactics Division, there will be scenes where he teaches students the basics. Although he isn’t particularly acquainted with Ash, he values his high combat ability and senses. The person who gave Randolph advice has appeared in previous entries in the series and is someone who is in a position to mobilize him.
Prince Olivert Reise Arnor
29 years old. Responsible for the formation of Class VII. After the end of the Civil War, as the victor Giliath Osborne continued to invade the regions surrounding the Empire, and with the Vander family being dismissed of its employment as protection for the Imperial family, he came to understand that his authority has weakened. Knowing that Thors Military Academy has converted into a full-fledged military school, he proposes Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School as a last resort.
Toshihiro Kondo’s comments: The current state of the Empire is significantly unfavorable to Olivert, and the game will depict how he makes the decision to confront Osborne and take action in the midst of it. One thing is to make calls to his personal connections scattered across the Empire. It also touches upon Olivert’s upbringing and standing as a member of the Imperial family, as well as how the emperor thinks of him. There are also scenes where he acts as Olivier Lenheim.
■ System
Combat Link
Allows two party characters to perform a link attack after a standard attack makes the enemy lose its posture. There is also a cooperative attack called “Rush,” which consumes Brave Points (BP), and an all-party “Burst” attack.
Field Attack
By attacking an enemy symbol on the field, you can start the battle with the upper hand. An “Assault Attack,” in which you will are guaranteed to start the battle with an advantage, has been added. This consumes Assault Points, which build up as time passes or by destroying objects.
Toshihiro Kondo’s comments: BP is shared by Brave Orders and Combat Links, but to that extent they are easy to accumulate. Because a number of formidable foes will appear on the field, the use of Assault Attacks are important. The tactical orbment is the latest model of the Reinford Group, but new elements will also be introduced in a followup story.
Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko and Games Talk.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III details Tio Plato, Randolph Orlando, and Olivert Reise Arnor

Published 12 hours ago. 64 comments.

Meet the latest confirmed characters.




Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the game’s latest confirmed characters Tio Plato, Randolph Orlando, and Olivert Reise Arnor.




Get the details below.



■ Characters

Tio Plato
  • Age: 16







A young researcher who belongs to the Crossbell branch of the Epstein Foundation. She is doing research on the “Eion System,” which is said to enable the “resonance connection of information processing” between humans and machines.
Due to special circumstances, she was working as a member of the Foundation’s research team since early childhood, but at the age of 14 was transferred to the old Crossbell State as test personnel.




While testing new-style equipment such as the “Orbal Staff” and “Eion System,” she solved a variety of incidents with Randolph and others as a member of the Special Support Section.


After the annexation of Crossbell, Tio was temporarily called back to Foundation headquarters, but decided to again return to Crossbell for the sake of her friends.
Although under surveillance by the Imperial Intelligence Agency, she does her job as head of research while also working behind the scenes as a “liaison.”








Randolph Orlando
  • Age: 24






A former member of “Red Constellation,” which is said to be the strongest jaeger corps in the continent. Currently the instructor in charge of Class VIII: Tactics Division at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School. His nickname is Randy.




For certain reasons, after leaving the jaeger corps, he ended up in Crossbell, where he joined the Crossbell Guardian Force, but caused trouble and was discharged.
Immediately following, he was scouted to become a member of the Crossbell Police Department’s Special Support Section, and found a place where he belonged in facing numerous difficulties alongside investigators Lloyd Bannings, Elie MacDowell, and Tio Plato.




After the annexation of Crossbell, the Special Support Section was dissolved, and even after being assigned to the Imperial Army of Erebeonia’s Crossbell Military Defense Force, he was moving forward with preparations for an unwavering resistance movement with his friends.




However, after receiving advice from a certain someone, he decides to go to the Empire on his own to determine the likelihood of Crossbell’s independence.









Prince Olivert Reise Arnor
  • Age: 29






The eldest son of Erebonia emperor Eugent Reise Arnor III and founder of the old “Class VII” of Thors Military Academy.


He is a hobbyist also called the Prodigal Prince, but because of his illegitimate birth (as a child born from someone other than the emperor’s wife), he has already abandoned his authority to succeed to the throne.
During the Civil War, he entrusted the red-winged cruiser “Courageous” to Thors Military Academy, and in the western part of the Empire, began a movement called “the winds of freedom” with Mueller Vander. He and others assisted those who suffered from war in order for them to rise with their own power.




After the Civil War ended, the victor and “Blood and Iron Chancellor” Giliath Osborne took control of the entire Empire in a “winner-take-all” fashion. As Osborne pressed forward with territorial expansion and the invasion of regions surrounding the empire, and with the Vander family being dismissed of its employment as protection for the Imperial family, Olivert came to understand that his authority has weakened.


And now—Septian Calendar 1206.
Olivert, knowing that Thors Military Academy has converted into a full-fledged military school, proposes Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School as a final “resistance.”
Additionally, to stand against the Blood and Iron Chancellor, he begins working his personal connections inside and outside of the Empire, as well as mobilizes himself within the Empire.





■ Keywords

Eion System
A system developed by the Epstein Foundation for assisting in the operation of computer terminals. Through the Orbal Staff, Orbal Arts can be activated without wait and high-speed processing of the Orbal Terminal can be realized. By linking different machines and systems, it is also able to produce results that exceed original specifications through synergistic effects. However, using the system requires high aptitude. It is for this reason that Tio, whose perceptive abilities are beyond that of an ordinary person, in a certain situation was able to master the system. Overuse of the system bears a heavy burden on the user.
Misshi
The mascot character of Mishelam Wonderland in Crossbell State, Misshi is a bipedal walking-cat like creature who always has a troubled look on its face. Regardless of age or gender, it’s highly popular even within the Empire to the point where straps are sold. Tio is a big Misshi fan, liking the character so much that she gets super excited whenever she sees Misshi-related goods. During a certain quest in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Azure, Lloyd, who played the role of an inexperienced Misshi, warmly watched over his little sister “Misshe.”
Red Constellation
A group said to be the strongest among the Mira (money)-moving jaeger corps. They excel at battle techniques mainly using firearms, and if ordered to do so, have the potential to reduce an entire town to ashes without issue. After losing its leader, “War God” Baldur Orlando, in a battle with longtime enemy group “Zephyr,” Sigmund Orlando took to the reigns of the group. Randy has also been fighting in the group since childhood as the “Son of the War God,” and exhibits his furious weapon power with his blade rifle, Berserger. Those around him fear him as the “Crimson Reaper.”
Olivier Lenheim
Olivier Lenheim. This is the name that Olivert took on as a self-proclaimed traveling musician in The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky series. His goal as Olivier was to find Cassius Bright, the leading Bracer in all of Zemuria, in order to stand against the unsettling movement of Giliath Osborne. In the process, he met Cassius’ daughter Estelle Bright and accompanied her journey. As a member of the party, he sometimes used his position as a member of the Royal Family and was a significant contributor in the resolution of the “Liberlian Incident.” During his trip, he successfully deepened his relationships with those who occupy important positions in the continent, including Cassius, Estelle, and Liberl’s next queen Klaudia von Auslese. He turned his attention to the Bracers that respond flexibly to various situations, which also led to the establishment of Class VII.
Arnor Royal Family
The royal family that built and governed the Erebonia Empire. Although the emperor is at the head of the military and politics, the Imperial military and Imperial government are responsible for the practical work. The emperor is Eugent Reise Arnor III. He has three children—his oldest son Olivert Reise Arnor, and twins Alfin Reise Arnor (the older sister) and Cedric Reise Arnor (the younger brother). Cedric, being his only legitimate son (born from his wife), is recognized as the successor to the throne. Within that lineage is a man named Dreichels Reise Arnor, who abandoned his position as a member of the royal family to end the “War of the Lions,” a civil war within the Empire, and became emperor as a result. Emperor Dreichels is the previous generation’s “Awakener” of Valimar, the Ashen Knight, which is currently piloted by Rean Schwarzer.
Conflict with the Blood and Iron Chancellor
As the Imperial prime minister, Giliath Osborne has the unwavering trust of the emperor, is familiar with the underside of society, and furthermore is a monster-like character with a band of talented proteges known as the “Ironbloods.” While his true motives are unknown, Olivert sensed danger in Osborne’s trends, and his trip to Liberl and the formation of Class VII are part of his own mobilization to stand against him. The formation of Class VII is an operation of his “winds of freedom” movement. Currently, the battle against Osborne is set back by numerical inferiority, but please expect Olivert’s rebound.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III details Campanella, Mcburn, and Shirley

Published 1 day ago. 67 comments.
Quote:
Meet the Ouroboros characters.






Falcom has released a new set of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III information and screenshots detailing Ouroboros-associated characters Campanella, Mcburn, and Shirley.




Get the details below.


■ Characters


Campanella, “The Fool” (voiced by Kanae Ito)
  • Age: ???





Enforcer No. 0 once again dispatched to the Empire by the Grandmaster in response to the interruption of the Phantasmal Blaze Plan that Ouroboros was moving forward with.




He is mischievous and has a boyish figure, but his appearance is somehow unchanged from long ago and even his factual age is unknown.




In order to combat Giliath Osborne’s takeover of the Phantasmal Blaze Plan, he gets the cooperation of the Red Constellation Jaeger corps led by the Enforcer Shirley and the Thirteen Factories, and causes disturbances in various parts of the Empire.




And he will once more tell a certain long dormant member that the society has a “request”…








Mcburn, “The Almighty Conflagration” (voiced by Junichi Suwabe)
  • Age: ???




Enforcer No. 1 of the Ouroboros society, who has the nickname “Eternal Flame” due to his ability to freely manipulate fire.




Although admired as the “strongest” Enforcer in the society, he has a considerably moody personality.
He sometimes abandons his missions when he feels like doing so.




He fought fiercely in the Civil War, and since his duel against “Blademaster” Viscount Arseid, it seems that he his “going hungry” and is seeking a “being that surpasses [himself].”






Shirley Orlando, “The Crimson War Phantom” (voiced by Ayana Taketatsu)
  • Age: 18






Enforcer No. XVII of the Ouroboros secret society, and a natural combat enthusiast who finds pleasure in battle.
Two years ago, she raided the old Crossbell State as battalion commander of the nation’s strongest Jaeger corps, the Red Constellation. A fierce battle unfolded against the Crossbell Guardian Force and the Special Support Section that her older cousin Randolph belongs to.
After that, she was invited to the secret society by the new, third Anguis.




While serving as the captain of the old Red Constellation, she carries out various missions as an Enforcer.
Shirley, who successfully infiltrated the Empire at the request of the third Anguis in order to take back the stolen Phantasmal Blaze Plan, is excited about the premonition of a new war…







■ Keywords

Ouroboros






A secret society that maneuvers all over the continent of Zemuria in order to carry out the mysterious Phantasmal Blaze Plan.




With the Grandmaster at its center, it is composed of upper echelons called the Anguis and a practical unit known as the Enforcers.
In order to recover the Phantasmal Blaze Plan stolen by the Blood and Iron Chancellor Giliath Osborne in the midst of the Civil War that occurred in the Erebonian Empire a year and a half ago, the members of the association will resume activity within the Empire.




Enforcer No. 0


The Enforcer society is made up of agents that act as the working unit of the Anguis’ plans.
Campanella, who was given the title of Enforcer No. 0, is different from the rest of the Enforcers.
By acting as the one who ascertains the Anguis’ plans, he is less likely to make moves in public and reports directly to the Grandmaster.
Based on this, we can understand that her treatment is different from the rest of the Enforcers.
Will The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III reveal anything about his special positon, his relationship with the Grandmaster, and so on? Please keep an eye on Campanella’s trends.




Divergent Laws


Words often spoken in the Trails series that refer to existence, power, and law, and outside the realm of common knowledge of the people in the continent of Zemuria.
The Divergent Laws have a deep connection to Mcburn’s ability to manipulate fire, and it is said that his demon sword “Angbar” was also forged by the Divergent Laws.
It is said that the power of the ogre within Rean is also “mixed” with Mcburn, which is seemingly connected to the Divergent Laws.
There is a demon sword called “Kernviter,” which acts as the opposite to Angbar, and although it was possessed by Enforcer No. II Loewe, it broke during the Liberl Disaster and now lays in his tomb.




The Combat Enthusiast


Shirley first appeared in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Azure, pursuing strategies as the battalion commander of the Red Constellation such as raiding the mining village Mainz in order to create a diversion.
In order to anger Rixia Mao, whose true identity is the “Yin” assassin, she attacked and seriously injured Ilya Plattiere, who is a senior performer at her theatrical company. She did things like this on her own accord in order to satisfy her desire to find an opponent who will seriously try to kill her.
After that, her ability and disposition were bought as she was scouted to join Ouroboros as an Enforcer. It has been several years since then, and there may be scenes where she clashes with Rean and the new members of Class VII.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.
