The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold
Steel III on Switch
The Switch version of the game will be
coming to North America and Europe in spring 2020. A Japanese release will
follow sometime later.
The Switch version will run at locked
720p resolution with 30 frames per second in both docked and undocked modes.
Special editions of the game will be available, just like the PlayStation 4
version did. All of the versions, including the standard edition, will have all
of the game’s downloadable content items. A demo will be playable at launch.
The game first launched for PlayStation
4 on September 28, 2017 in Japan and Oct. 22 in North America and Europe. Check
out the overview here:
Nearly a year and a half has passed
since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then. From the
shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the Empire, and even
the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past have given way to the
embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors Military Academy, Rean has
become an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus, a newly-opened academy that
quickly finds itself thrust onto the national stage. It is here that he takes the
lead of a brand new Class VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into
an unknown future. Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization
continues to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war…or
perhaps something even more sinister.
Trails of Cold Steel III invites players
into a world full of intrigue and excitement that is years in the making. They
will embark on a whirlwind tour through the never-before-seen lands of the
recently expanded Erebonian countryside, and encounter fresh faces as well as
old friends familiar to fans of the series. In true Trails fashion, the deep,
engaging story pairs with an incredible cast of characters and a combat system
refined over decades of innovative RPG worldbuilding. This renowned title has
also now been developed natively for PlayStation 4 hardware, a series first.
Welcome to the New Class VII –

up with familiar faces from the past.
An Immersive Story – Experience

ongoing story so anyone can dive right in to the world of Trails of Cold Steel.

course of decades. The addition of features like Brave Order and the Break
System opens up new possibilities in battle.
