In addition, Trails of Cold Steel offers up a number of unique features including the Link System in which the power of your allies grows as the bonds between them and the main character grow through interactions outside of battle, making time spent off the battlefield just as important as on. The classic Orbment advancement system also returns, this time paired with the brand new ARCUS system, making it easier than ever before to access abilities and other character traits. As if that level of customization wasn’t enough, players will also be able to outfit each of the game’s female cast members with a number of different classes, such as the Magic User class which eventually advances into Sorceress and then can evolve even further into the Magical Princess role.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
