Trails of Cold Steel 3 Will Bring Rean and the Gang Back to the PC Soon

NIS America's bringing Falcom's RPG sequel to yet another platform.

If you're itching to go back to Erebonia but don't want to take the journey on a PlayStation 4, then NIS America has good news for you: in addition to a previously announced Nintendo Switch port, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will be released for the PC in Spring 2020.

NIS America revealed its plans for the port today at its PAX South panel, almost a year to the day after it announced that it would localize Trails of Cold Steel 3 for North American and European release. The third installment in the Cold Steel series follows Rean Schwarzer in the wake of the Erebonian Civil War as he takes on a teaching role at a new campus of the Thors Military Academy.

Last month, developers Nihon Falcom confirmed that Trails of Cold Steel 3 would come to the Switch this spring with all the game's DLC, running at 720p and 30 FPS in either docked or handheld mode. On PC, where you can also play the first two entries in the trilogy, the port of Trails of Cold Steel 3 will launch with 26 free cosmetics that weren't available in last year's PlayStation 4 release.

At the PAX South panel, NIS America also announced a new patch for Ys 8: Lacrimosa of DANA featuring various improvements and the addition of an "experimental" local cooperative mode. The Langrisser 1 and 2 remakes slated for release this year will also get a demo for the Switch, PS4, and PC.

In USG's review of the PS4 version of the game, Staff Writer Nadia Oxford found that Trails of Cold Steel 3 is well worth playing for fans of the series, though it's not a great jumping-on point for newcomers. If you're an RPG fan just getting started with Trails of Cold Steel, then it seems the PC's a good place to experience the story all the way through.
