Trails of Cold Steel III – Demo Release Trailer | PS4

October 12, 2019

Welcome to a very brief
guide to The Legend of Heroes, Trails of Cold Steel III. Whether you’re a returning
fan of Trails of Cold Steel or you’re picking up the
series for the first time, you’re sure to find something
exciting in this guided look through
Trails of Cold Steel III. With that in mind,
let’s dive right in. This is Rean Schwarzer, the main character of the
Trails of Cold Steel series. He is recently graduated from
Thor’s Military Academy’s main campus and received
his diploma and is now starting as an instructor at
Thor’s branch campus. He will also serve as the
homeroom teacher for Class 7, Special Operations. Through Rean, you will
experience a majority of the events of
Trails of Cold Steel III. The Trails of Cold Steel series takes place
in the Erebonian Empire, a nation still recovering
from a recent civil war. As a new instructor, Rean’s goal
is to guide the next generation of students towards
a brighter future. The world of Trails of Cold
Steel is constantly evolving. Every character has
their own story that unfolds as the game progresses. Returning fans of the series
may even recognize a few faces from the past. It really is you, Rean. If you’re new to the series
and are looking for a bit of background on Trails of Cold
Steel or a you’re returning fan and just need a quick
refresher, don’t worry. Trails of Cold Steel III
contains a comprehensive library of places, people, and terms to
help you familiarize yourself with the world. Here we have a short
background of the character, Towa Herschel,
and the role she’s played over the past few years. With all this info
at your finger tips, you’ll always feel
caught up on current events. The world of Trails of Cold
Steel wouldn’t be complete without a number of
interesting side activities to participate in. Among them are fishing and a brand-new collectible card
game called “Vantage Masters.” Each of these activities offer
different ways to shape your gameplay experience and explore
different nuances of the world of Trails of Cold Steel. Now, before we go any further, let’s meet the characters
that you’ll be spending most of your time with
in Trails of Cold Steel III. Introducing the
new students of Class 7: My name is Kurt Vander. I’m from the capital. I’m Juna Crawford. I transferred here from the
Crossbell Police Academy. Altina Orion, formerly part of the Imperial
Army’s Intelligence Division. During the demo you will have
the opportunity to experience the dynamic gameplay of
Trails of Cold Steel III and the technological training
facility known as Einhel Keep. Dangerous monsters
and other challenges await those who enter. Let’s take a moment to
review the basics of combat. Trails of Cold Steel III
utilizes a flexible and accessible combat UI that is
easy to learn and navigate and allows players to implement
a variety of strategies and maneuvers. A few of the notable features
are the turn order on the left side of the screen and your party’s
current stats on the right. The lines between characters
indicate their current Combat Links. And the smaller character
portraits on the right indicate characters in your party but
not currently on the field. As you can see in the middle,
each direction and face button is tied to one of the eight
primary functions of combat. Let’s briefly review each one. Select Attack to choose a
single target to attack. You’ll also need to consider the
distance they can travel in one turn as represented
by the yellow circle. With Move you can strategically place your
character on the battlefield. If you use Arts, you’ll have
access to a wide variety of different elemental attacks. These are divided
among offensive properties like Direct Damage
and De-Buffing as well as Support Arts
that can heal and buff allies. Arts will take some
time to charge up, but the wait is worth it. Crafts are next. Crafts are special skills
unique to each character. Unlike Arts, Crafts
will be performed instantly but require
CP or “Craft Points” to use. Get back. Although you can only have
four party members at a time in battle, you can always swap
out to other playable characters traveling with you. The right person for the fight
is always at your fingertips. Brave Order is a new ability introduced in
Trails of Cold Steel III that uses your Brave Points to
deliver a party-wide buff. for a limited time. It can even be
performed by allies not currently on the field. You’re Brave Points can be found on the top right
corner of the screen. Finally, if things
get really dire, you can always
attempt to flee a battle. It is a good idea to keep
some smoke grenades around to help facilitate
an easier escape. That covers the
basics you’ll need to know for combat in the field. Now it’s time to put
what you learned to the test in Tryouts and Exercises
in Einhel Keep. Thank you for joining us and good luck in the world of
Trails of Cold Steel III. Trails of Cold Steel III. The legend of
Class 7 begins anew.

    From what I understand there's a whole bunch of games in this franchise.

    Are there plans for remakes of the older entries to PS4 and release them physically on disc?

    ⭐Dragon Slayer⭐
    – Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes

    – Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes II never released in the US

    ⭐Gagharv Trilogy⭐

    – The Legend of Heroes II: Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch

    – The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean

    ⭐Trails in the Sky⭐

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd

    ⭐Trails – CrossBell Arc⭐(on the Vita, never released in the US)

    – The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III

    – The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV

    * I hope that eventually, you guys release a remaster/remake version of the older entries for the PS4 on disc.

    * I hope to see a US release.
    So what they'd need to do on the PS4…

    Well, the wait was long, but definitely worthwhile. I know the OG translation team helped in the translation, but I still feel uneasy until I've seen some of the game's translation myself. I'm hoping it isn't botched too much, but at this point I'm satisfied knowing we just got the game. It's probably too early to tell, but does anyone know if they'll help with Cold Steel 4's translation as well? Unless that's in NISA's hands now.

    The Best RPG Game series in the history of JRPGs. Super Super under rated and dare I say, other than the visuals, its 10x better than any Final Fantasy including FF7. Final Fantasy characters don't even come close to the amount of character development and story this series has. Moreover, the only battle system that comes close to this FF10 Battle System. The number of playable characters, their diverse move sets, and the sheer amount of playable characters with both male and female choices are a big contrast to questionable games like FF15 which had no permanently playable females. The game is also not linear and you can have many side quests. Albeit I will admit the depth of side quests exceeds all other FF games but not FF10 which I hope it exceeds. FF10 Monster Arena and some other quests are on its own level. But TOCS doesn't leave that thing hanging though and does at least include many many optional bosses. Also… the most badass, yet kind and calm and sort of the leadership quality guy in history of RPGs.
