The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I and II launches in the west for PS4 in early 2019

As Japan enjoys the release of Sen no Kiseki IV, XSEED Games looks to give us fans in the west another way to play the Cold Steel series by announcing alongside Marvelous that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II is set to launch for the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe sometime in early 2019.

This release includes all the enhancements made to the PC release including the option to either play the game with the English or Japanese voice track for the first time in the series' history (the PC version will get the Japanese dub as part of an upcoming free update).

Originally titled Sen no Kiseki Kai and Sen no Kiseki II Kai in Japan, XSEED will also be releasing two different physical launch editions for players to choose from. They will be called The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Decisive Edition and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II Relentless Edition. Here is a rundown of what those versions entail:

Finally, here is a synopsis of the story from XSEED:

Among the nations on the Zemurian continent, the mighty Erebonian Empire has been quick to outwardly stake its claim militarily; yet politically, ugly bouts of internal conflict between the upper class and commoners attempting to rise to power have been steadily intensifying day by day. The Noble and Reformist Factions have been none too kind to one another over the years, and tensions between the two only stand to worsen if compromises aren’t made in the very near future.

Rean Schwarzer, like any other citizen of the Imperial Nation, is no stranger to these rising conflicts: the class system has been deeply embedded into the hearts of every Erebonian since the days of old. As a seventeen-year-old student preparing for his new life at Thors Military Academy, however, he notices that his crimson uniform differs from the standard ones issued to his peers—typically green for commoners, and white for nobles.

Enter, Class VII of Thors Military Academy. For the first time in the prestigious academy’s history, rank means nothing and skill means everything. With nine hand-picked students of various backgrounds and abilities, Rean included, Class VII readies itself to dive deep into the political quagmire that threatens not only them, but the Empire as a whole.
