Subtitled Trails of Cold Steel, the new games combines everything fans love about the series, including in-depth story telling and fast-paced turn-based tactical combat, and combines it with new additions such as the ARCUS battle system to craft an experience that long time fans and newbies alike will be able to enjoy. A stand-alone title in its own right the game will also feature the expansive lore and backgrounds fans of the series have come to know and love over the years, Trails of Cold Steel is also an ideal entry point for those who have never experienced The Legend of Heroes before.
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.
Those seeking adventure will find it on the PS3 and Vita, which can interact via Sony’s Cross-Save system, this fall when The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel comes home. For more gaming news and reviews, make sure to follow us n Twitter, @APGNation.
