The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is considered to be a hidden gem for the PlayStation 3 by many people who have played this game. While The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel was also made available for the PlayStation Vita there were many complaints about its frame rate in comparison to the PlayStation 3. Despite, the quality differences in both versions Trails of Cold Steel has the same amount of exhilarating RPG action with the inclusion of seven chapters that make up the story for this game. One of the exciting features in Trails of Cold Steel involves the grid based battle system this game utilizes. Even though, some of the monsters & bosses in this game were tough players at the opportunity to have up to four characters in their group during battles.
In most games during the 2000’s such as some the 3D Final Fantasy games players can have only up three characters battles with bosses or monsters. Some people might compare this game to the likes of Suikoden where players were generally allowed to have more than three characters on the field during trivial battles. Another feature that stands out about Trails of Cold Steel includes it in depth battle mode which gives the players multiple options on what to do with their characters. The BGM for Trails of Cold Steel also adds a nice touch to the game especially when the action takes place during those exciting monster battles. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel was definitely a great title that was developed by Nihon Falcon considering the fact that it was the first in the series.
While some might argue that this game is not perfect many others would say that it was a top notch RPG title with great storytelling, fantastic visuals, and nice gameplay. When this game was first released in Japan during late 2013 many people had to wait about two years for it to be released in America during the end of 2015. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II was also the same in which the actual game was released in America about two years after it inital release in Japan in 2014. As of right now Trails of Cold Steel III will definitely be in the works and has many people wondering what to expect prior to ts release.
