The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel PS4 to release on March 26

Publisher XSEED has finally revealed the release date for the PS4 release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, which is March 26.

The release date announcement was to be expected since we caught the game’s ESRB registration late last month, but its super nice to finally have an official confirmation.

Trails of Cold Steel I and II for PS4 will have 4K/FPS Support, Turbo Mode, PS3 and Vita Save Transfer plus more

Just over a month away, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel for the PS4 will have a physical day one edition called the “Decisive Edition”, which will be available physically for $50. There’s also a digital version of the game which will be available for a cheaper $40 price since it’ll not include the following additions exclusive to The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Decisive Edition:

  • A physical copy of the game
  • 21-track Soundtrack CD
  • 50 Mira Replica Coin
  • 10 page comic called the “Alisa Reinford’s Cold Steel Crash Course!”
  • 52 page game manual

Do note that the game is confirmed for a March 26 release by XSEED so far, who is the game’s publisher in North America. Marvelous, who are handling the publishing in Europe have not yet announced a release date.

Update: The European release has been confirmed for March 29.

Check out an overview of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel below:


The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel gives players the chance to follow the activities of Thors Military Academy’s specialized “Class VII” on PlayStation 4 with added features not found in any previous console releases. This includes dual audio for the first time in the series’ history on console, allowing players to enjoy the original Japanese voices for each of the games’ myriad characters. Additionally, they may choose to play with the much-lauded English dub that includes over 5,000 additional English lines previously available only in the PC edition.


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

XSEED also mentioned The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will release at a later date.
