Finally you have options besides the PlayStation 4 as you witness the conclusion of a saga.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, which released on PlayStation 4 last year, is now available also on Nintendo Switch and PC in North America, publisher NIS America announced today.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is, as its title suggests, the fourth installment in the offshoot series. It also serves as the final installment and depicts the final moments of a conflict engulfing a continent.

Taking place shortly after the conclusion of Trails of Cold Steel III, the finale drops the heroes of Class VII into a confrontation with the full force of the Empire, all while dealing with the disappearance of Rean Schwarzer. Uniting with heroes from all over the continent, the students will do what they can to prevent the total destruction of their world.

Key features include:

  • The Ultimate Class Reunion - Boasting the largest roster in series history, heroes from all over seek to join the cause! The heroes of Class VII unite with Crossbell's Special Support Section and even the heroes of Liberl.

  • Battle Most Refined - New and returning systems join the already polished combat of The Legend of Heroes series, including the ability to summon giant mechs to the field for devastating attacks, engage in Auto Battle for more expedient combat, and utilize Lost Arts, the most powerful Orbal magic capable of turning the tide of battle.

  • Pursuits of the War Weary - In between epic battles, catch a breather with a number of mini-games including returning favorites like Vantage Master, and fishing and puzzle games, as well as all-new pursuits like Poker, Blackjack, and the Horror Coaster.
It's kind of surprising, you likely agree, that more games don't implement something called the Horror Coaster. But we live in busy times, and such oversights are inevitable.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is available as a digital release through the Nintendo eShop for $59.99 USD, or in physical form for a slightly higher MSRP. PC gamers will find it on Steam, Stadia, GOG and the Epic Games Store, assuming they look for it and know how to use the provided search functions. Which we assume they do.
