The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Trophies Now Live Ahead of Release

on December 13, 2015 10:57 AM

Ahead of its release next Tuesday on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, the trophies for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel are now up according to trophy data site Exophase.

There are 51 total trophies split between the Platinum, 2 Gold, 10 Silver, and 38 Bronze. The trophy icons are pretty plain trophy pictures, although the bronze is green instead of the familiar shade of brown.

Generally the trophies follow a standard formula of completing everything offered in the game, from going through the story chapters, beating the game on the highest difficulty,¬†getting all the collectibles, and maxing out your bond with companions. One of the harder trophies, only due to time spent, is the “Trails in the Couch” which requires the player to have played for over 100 hours. Whether or not you can just leave the game idle to achieve this remains to be seen. You can read the full trophy list below.
