After making its debut last year with the third entry in the series, the Trails Of Cold Steel subseries of the bigger The Legend of Heroes franchise is set to come back on the Nintendo Switch in a few months.
Publisher NISA confirmed that Trails Of Cold Steel IV is launching on Nintendo Switch worldwide on April 9. The game will come with all the features seen in the PlayStation 4 release, and bring a close to the Trails Of Cold Steel series.
The Erebonian Empire is on the brink of all out war! Taking place shortly after the ending of Trails of Cold Steel III, the heroes of Class VII find themselves against the full force of the Empire in an attempt to stop its path of total domination. Further, the hero of the Erebonian Civil War and Class VII’s instructor, Rean Schwarzer, has gone missing. Now, the students of Class VII, old and new, must unite with heroes from all over the continent to create the only chance the world has to be spared from total destruction.
Unfortunately, the first two entries in the series are nowhere to be seen. As publishing rights belong to XSEED, and not NISA as for the second half of the series, it will be up to the publisher to develop and release ports of the first two games, which are definitely needed to understand the story up to this point.
Trails Of Cold Steel IV launches on Nintendo Switch on April 9. The game is available now on PlayStation 4.
