Game release: “The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III” (PC)

Nihon Falcom‘s, Engine Software BV‘s and NIS America‘s sci-fi anime RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III can now be played on PC as well.

The JRPG genre often looks a bit overcrowded, especially with many series being published later due to localization and conversion work that has to be done. So even though the third instalment came out on PS4 last year, the Switch version is still in the making, but at least PC gamers aren’t left behind, either. Playing as Rean Schwarzer, one has to train a group of teenagers at the Thors Branch Campus in order to prepare for a fight against the evil Ouroboros organization. Of course this doesn’t only involve lots of one-liners, but many turn-based battles.

Jumping right into a third part of a series might not be the wisest idea, but newcomers are catered for thanks to an interactive introduction that explains the world in more detail. While the combat system and over-the-top voice acting might not win over those who’ve never been into anime, those who have will certainly feel on familiar terrain, i.e. metal music and robots are a given here.

The game is out now on PC in either a standard or limited edition. The latter includes a standard cosmetic and consumable starter set, while the following goodies are only free when this edition is purchased before March 31, 2020: the soundtrack, Intelligence Division Files artbook, the Branch Campus Student Directory mini artbook, Anthems of the Thors Branch Campus soundtrack sampler, and the premium cosmetic set.
