Trails of Cold Steel 3 Is PS4 Exclusive, Coming Fall 2017 in Japan

Nihon Falcom's next Kiseki game won't be coming to PlayStation Vita.

Falcom has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III (Sen no Kiseki 3) is coming to Japan in Fall 2017. Unfortunately, players who have been following the series on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita will need to upgrade, as Trails of Cold Steel III will be exclusive to PlayStation 4.

Falcom previously mentioned that this could be the case and the publisher ultimately decided focus on one platform. This will mark the series' first entry on Sony's current home console.

Here's the game's synopsis, according to Falcom's teaser site (translation via Gematsu):

"Septian Calendar 1206: The end of the civil war led to the turning point of a new era for the Erebonian Empire. Centering on Rean Schwarzer as the 'Gray Knight,' the young man who came to be seen as a hero within the country, a new story of young heroes will unfold."

There's no word whether Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II will be making the jump to PlayStation 4 so players will have a matched set. On the bright side, the game's improved visual style is looking grand!
