XSEED has revealed their line-up for this year's E3 Expo, and among the announcements, the publisher has revealed that they are localizing both Sen no Kiseki I & II as 'Trails of Cold Steel', set to release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The first title in the duology will be at the show and is set to release this fall.
NIS America will be handling publishing duties in Europe. Check out the press release and debut screenshots below.
Revealed for the first time in North America, this RPG adventure from Nihon Falcom’s acclaimed The Legend of Heroes franchise, known in Japan as Sen no Kiseki, improves on the series’ formula and features an expertly told storyline that both longtime Trails veterans and newcomers alike can enjoy equally.
Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel is the first game in the series to tread Erebonian soil and explore the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned powerhouse in detail. With a standalone story that also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series, players take on the role of military students at a time of great turmoil, enjoying school life and bonding with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, then utilizing those abilities via speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system.
Best of all, this epic storyline can be unraveled either from home or on the go with Cross-Save functionality between the game’s PS Vita and PS3 editions.
