In this week’s Weekly Famitsu, Falcom released new screenshots of their RPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, coming to PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.
The screenshots re-introduce some old instructors starting with Sara Valestein who is now 27 years old. It’s pointed out in the screenshots that Sara used to be forced to drink alone because the kids weren’t of age. However, now they will be able to join her.
Next up we catch up with Angelica Rogner and George Nome who are now 27 and 21, respectively. Both will provide assistance to the party throughout the game, while Angelica travels the globe as a freelancer in hopes to find cute women. Thankfully, she will be returning with her signature bike. On the other hand, George is a technologist for Dr. Schmidt.
The Radiant Blademaster, Victor S. Arseid, received some screenshots showing that he too will bring his swordmaster skills to the aid of the party. This also aligns with what Sharon Krueger plans to do.
Divine Knight and Panzer Soldat battles are back and look pretty awesome in the screenshots. Party members will have their personalized mechs to use in battle. These mechs each have special traits so there is a bit of strategy added to the battle when creating a party. Players will need to aim at weak points of an enemy in order to inflict proper damage.
Recently, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III received a short trailer showing gameplay.
No western release date has been given, but in a statement to DualShockers Falcom President Falco Toshihiro Kondo said he would like to see it in the west.
