The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV Nintendo Switch PC


PlayStation 4 owners finally got to experience the end of the Trails of Cold Steel saga last year when the final title released as a limited-time exclusive. Said exclusivity, however, is now over, as NIS America has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV has officially released on Switch and PC.

Picking up shortly after the end of Trails of Cold Steel IIITrails of Cold Steel IV finds Class VII—both old and new—stuck in the middle of the Erebonian Empire’s most ruthless takeover yet. What’s more, Rean Schwarzer—hero of the Erebonian Civil war and New Class VII instructor—has gone missing, leaving what remains of Class VII both concerned for their friend and without a leader. What path will they ultimately take? I could tell you, but that would spoil the fun of you playing it for yourself! Want to learn more about Trails of Cold Steel IV? Keep on reading to check out the list of key features below:


  • The Ultimate Class Reunion – Boasting the largest roster in series history, heroes from all over seek to join the cause! The heroes of Class VII unite with Crossbell’s Special Support Section and even the heroes of Liberl.
  • Battle Most Refined – New and returning systems join the already polished combat of The Legend of Heroes series, including the ability to summon giant mechs to the field for devastating attacks, engage in Auto Battle for more expedient combat, and utilize Lost Arts, the most powerful Orbal magic capable of turning the tide of battle.
  • Pursuits of the War Weary – In between epic battles, catch a breather with a number of mini-games including returning favorites like Vantage Master, and fishing and puzzle games, as well as all-new pursuits like Poker, Blackjack, and the Horror Coaster.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side (once you get to know him), Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of developers, consoles, and genres, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Donkey Kong Country 2, The Binding of Isaac, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
