Just last week we have heard about Nihon Falcom's plan to bring the entire Trails of Cold Steel series to PlayStation 4, and it looks like they have already started putting that plan into motion. Falcom has just officially announced that they are indeed bringing the first Trails of Cold Steel to the PS4 with a new title: The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki Kai -Thors Military Academy 1204-
Being a remaster of the PS3 version, this game will have enhanced audio quality, 4K resolution support, and 60fps framerate. However, it will also feature a new Turbo Skip mode where you can speed up events and field movements to 2x, and battles to 4x.
Those who have already played the recently released Trails of Cold Steel III beforehand will be able to use the save data to unlock New Game+ bonuses early, such as costumes, maximum bonding points, and 300,000 money. And those who have the save data of the original Trails of Cold Steel I on PS3 or PS Vita can bring it directly to the PS4 version as well.
This PS4 remaster of the first Trails of Cold Steel, subtitled Thors Military Academy 1204, will be released in Japan on March 8, 2018. Of course, since this announcement is still fresh even in Japan, an English localization has not been announced yet.
