Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II head to PC
Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel will be coming off of PS3 and Vita and onto PC this summer and it’s sequel sometime down the line. The PC version will have 5,000 more voice lines (a 50% increase) as well as run at 60 frames per second.
Here’s a comparison video between the PS3 and PC version. Please note that the footage was shot at 30fps, but the game itself was running 60fps.
Here’s what XSEED has to say on the title
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel builds on Nihon Falcom’s beloved Trails franchise, improving on the series’ formula while delivering an expertly told, standalone narrative that both series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy. Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel further explores Erebonia and gives players a chance to delve deep into the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned and powerful empire. Players take on the role of elite military students at a time of great turmoil, who enjoy school life as they bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, and then utilize those abilities via tactical turn-based combat. In between skirmishes, players can upgrade their party members with the “ARCUS” system – a streamlined version of the classic “Orbment” magic system from previous titles – allowing for greater access to abilities and quicker customization.
