Today Nihon Falcom released a new batch of screenshots of its upcoming JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III.
This time around, we see quite a few characters who supported and instructed protagonist Rean when he was a student part of Class VII in the previous games of the series. They’re back in the new chapter, and their paths will cross Rean’s once more.
Sara Valestein is now 27 years old. She retired from her work at the academy, and now she works with Fie as an infiltrator of the imperial guard. They make a fearsome combination.
Sharon Krueger is 25 years old. After having revealed her true nature as an assassin for Ouroboros, she kept working as a maid for the Reinford family, and she is currently supporting Alisa from behind the scenes, after she has taken up the position of manager for the family group.
Angelica Rogner is now 21 years old. After the end of the civil war she went on a road trip to “see the whole continent on her bike,” as she had planned for some time. During her trip she notices that something is wrong.
George Nome is now 21 years old. After graduation, he decided to travel every workshop in the continent in order to broaden his knowledge as a technologist. He has been absorbing information from the ZFC, the Epstein Foundation and more.
Victor S. Arseid is 45 years old. After his daughter Laura graduated, he took her on a journey to learn the family traditions. Yet, he feels a certain sense of impatience.
You can check out the screenshots, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy the a batch of screenshots featuring the rest of the former members of Class VII, a second batch with the same focus, more showing some of the battle features, and the latest commercial.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will release in Japan on September 28th, exclusively for PS4. No western release date has been announced just yet, but in our latest interview with Nihon Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo, he seemed to hint quite strongly that it will come at some point.
