With development now complete, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will be available on September 6 in North America for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, XSEED Games announced. You’ll be able to pick it up through both retail and digital stores for $39.99 USD.
Cold Steel II includes cross-save between PS3 and PS Vita, and if you have save data from the first Cold Steel, you’ll be given bonus stats and extra items. “In addition, relationships cultivated during the earlier time players spent at Thors Military Academy affect future story elements and allow for more personalized conversations throughout the game,” XSEED says.
Here’s the description:
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation at the conclusion of Trails of Cold Steel. Speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember alongside a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation across both 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.
NISA is handling the European version of Trails of Cold Steel II, but they haven’t set a release date yet.
