Trails Of Cold Steel 4 Buyer's Guide: Where To Buy The Special Edition
The Cold Steel series comes to a conclusion starting today when Trails of Cold Steel 4 releases on PlayStation 4.
The final chapter in the saga of Legend of Heroes series' Trails of Cold Steel arc, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV launches worldwide for PlayStation 4 today, October 27, 2020, with Nintendo Switch and PC ports planned for 2021. The Cold Steel arc, which is part of the Trails series and The Legend of Heroes franchise, kicked off stateside in 2015 with the release of Trails of Cold Steel on PS3 and PS Vita, so Trails of Cold Steel IV will give fans a finale five years in the making. If you can't wait to get your hands on the game, you can get Trails of Cold Steel IV now, and there are a couple of editions with various pricing to consider.
Trails of Cold Steel IV's story picks up two weeks after the battle at the end of Trails of Cold Steel III, as Juna, Kurt, and Altina awaken to realize Rean has been captured by Chancellor Osborne. Now led by Juna, Class VI sets off to rescue Rean and put an end to Osborne's plans, which will bring about the end of the world, once and for all. The turn-based gameplay remains the same, although Trails of Cold Steel IV introduces new S-Craft techniques as well as powerful Lost Arts for each character in combat. The game also boasts the largest roster in the series' history, with returning characters from the Trails in the Sky trilogy and the Crossbell arc.
If you're ready for Trails of Cold Steel IV, check out the two editions available now below. In the meantime, Trails of Cold Steel III just released on Nintendo Switch, and you can get its physical Extracurricular edition, which comes with some bonus collectibles.
If you want a physical copy of Trails of Cold Steel IV, the Frontline edition is available for $60 and comes with a copy of the game, a soft-cover art booklet called The Black Records, a digital download of the soundtrack, and a reverse cover sheet. Both the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions are up for preorder, but keep in mind the Switch version won't release until next year.
