Press Release


Peace is but a memory.

In the wake of the Noble Faction’s occupation of Heimdallr, civil war has broken out across Erebonia. The provincial armies, loyal to the aristocracy and the Four Great Houses, have claimed many of the nation’s great cities in the name of the Noble Alliance. The Imperial Army, called back from the four corners of the Empire, has only just begun sweeping its counterattack.

After Rean managed to escape Trista with Celine and Valimar, he awakens in the mountains near his hometown uncertain what fate befell his friends, who bravely threw themselves in harm’s way to buy him time to flee.

Though the road will not be an easy one, Rean decides to take up his sword again, journeying across Erebonia with his Divine Knight, Valimar, in search of his friends from Class VII and a way to end the conflict before its price becomes far too dear…

***

Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia. The speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember together with a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation both across the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.

KEY FEATURES

A Sequel that Remembers the Past
Clear data from Trails of Cold Steel carries over, granting bonus stats and extra items, while also remembering the many relationships cultivated during earlier times spent at Thors Military Academy to allow for more personalized conversations throughout the story.

The Link System Returns with a new Overdrive Mode
Bonding with allies continues to pay off with the Combat Link System, netting a variety of combat benefits including healing, guarding, and more, while the new Overdrive mode allows linked characters to attack up to three turns in a row for new strategic battle options.

Recruit Allies from Across the Map to Prepare for War
Find and recruit dozens of fellow Thors attendees who are now scattered across the country to gain exclusive shops, goods, training modes, systems, and plenty more of the Trails series’ highly celebrated colorful dialogue.

Take to the Land and Sky in New Modes of Transportation
A personalized airship allows players to swiftly descend upon both familiar and foreign destinations, and travel on land is faster than ever between horseback riding and Angelica’s customizable orbal bike.


Lastly, we have a brand new trailer to get you even more pumped for this upcoming release from XSEED.

      Yeah, when you consider that the Japanese companies don’t really develop for the MS systems, really it’s only a contest if you only include first party games. If you also include 3rd party, it’s not even close.
