Its not even been six months since they announced Sen III and now they're announcing #4. Though it does look and sound like we might be nearing a culmination with this one.

Sen III was announced in December of 2016, so it's been a year actually.

And yes, this will be the final Cold Steel game.

Knew I shouldn't have gone with the ToCSIII Thread's Posting Date.

Eh. It doesn't matter anyways since this thread will be abandoned and replaced within the next 2 or 3 months.

no Vita release (of course) so I have to hope they port it (and 3) to steam someday.

Cool. After starting with a trilogy and then a duology, I'd really be raising an eyebrow if this story arc went into a fifth part.

(I beat the Sky trilogy about a month back and am nearing the end of the first Steel game.)

As awesome as this announcement is, I'm still waiting on the localization announcement for Cold Steel III.  The silence since the game's Japanese release is making me nervous.  I'm desperately hoping NIS America doesn't get the rights to Cold Steel III considering their mishandling of the localisation of Ys VIII.  I might not think it is as awful as some, but I do acknowledge it was mediocre and could've been done far better.

they have the rights to CS3, sadly. My guess for lack of a release date is that Falcom did not seem to happy for NIS's effort and maybe NIS America might just had to scrap their localization for CS3 and redo that too. Episodic sequels also traditionally decline in sales so if CS3 is an awful localization CS4 will bomb and Falcom needs those NA sales if they want to continue to make console games.

If it is true they haven't told anyone.  Which does make me wonder how Rook knows it...

If that is true, I will pout for a month when it's officially announced.  Here's hoping whatever source you have to lead to this conclusion is wrong.

Eh maybe not (please be not!). I thought I already that NIS America had it but yea the interview I read didn't specifically mention it.

Interview from destroctoid

As many of us know, NIS is publishing Lacrimosa in the West. What led to the break from XSEED?

Actually, NIS America has been approaching us for years now, well before Ys VIII. In their proposal for Ys VIII, we felt a much stronger passion for the game than what we had seen before. We have released many games outside of Japan, but there were several things in their proposal that we had never seen before. For these reasons, we decided to go with them for Ys VIII.

More spoilers, but the gist of this is that this one will be the end of the Trails (likely because its going to become too much trouble to keep up with all the ports and remakes if they go any further).

The end of the Trails of Cold Steel saga, yes. Not the end of Trails in general. They've already said that the overall story is only about 60% complete, so there will be more Trails games.

...No, just the end of Trails of Cold Steel. There's nothing about stopping the entire series altogether.

Read the posts above yours, you'll see he was apparently confused. Or, at the very least, he was wrong.

In my defense, I still haven't even fondled my way through the second TitS, so pardon my erroneous speed reading as I try to keep up to date without stepping in deep shit spoilers.

But yes. I misread the article and posted incorrect information (and really, I'm enough of a pessimist to actually believe that somebody like Rean had actually hijacked the Trails in the Series; especially given his status as an omnisexual, and how these massive multi-chapter series' tend to go).

Yeah, that was my bad, I didn't see that there was a second page of posts.
