After publishing a teaser page yesterday, Nihon Falcom has today officially announced The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV -The End of Saga- as the conclusion to the popular RPG series. This game will be released in Japan exclusively for PlayStation 4 in Fall 2017.
This completes Nihon Falcom’s plan to bring the entire Trails of Cold Steel tetralogy to the PlayStation 4 after the first game in the console, Trails of Cold Steel III, was released in Japan on September 28, 2017. The first two games, which were originally released on the PS3 and Vita, are also getting new PS4 versions as Trails of Cold Steel I -Thors Military Academy 1204- and Trails of Cold Steel II -The Erebonian Civil War- that will be respectively released on March 8 and April 26, 2018.
Although Falcom also posted preliminary details about Trails of Cold Steel IV, they contain major spoilers towards the end of Trails of Cold Steel III which has not even been localized to the West as of this writing. So with consideration to that, we have made an abridged translation to Nihon Falcom’s official press release.
Nihon Falcom Corporation hereby officially announces that we are currently producing The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV -The End of Saga-, the newest game in our highly popular story RPG Trails series and the final chapter for Trails of Cold Steel, as a PlayStation 4 exclusive title to be released in Fall 2018.
