So turns out the localization producer for Cold Steel III is Brittany Avery who has worked on the franchise ever since Trails in the Sky FC. They've also got Ryan Thomson and Kris Knigge, both of whom worked on Cold Steel I and II. Apparently the stream that revealed all this went from dismay and despair to cheers and ecasty in an instant. Hopefully that's a good sign.

^They aren't making a PC port this time, going by the announcement. At least, I hope they don't bother with a PC port, they really haven't done a good job with them so far, last I checked.

I read that they got a few of the localizers from XSeed working on this? Is that true?

Perhaps, at least until they stop paying them, shove them in a box deep in the bowels of NISA headquarters, and feed them only one slice of moldy beweeviled bread, and some dirty water that was probably used to swab the deck and rung out of the mop, once every two days one 'all-beef' hotdog + a dab of the cheapest ketchup, mustard and relish known to man, and a single snack sized bag of chips (bottled water must be purchased from the company's vending machine for a buck fifty and no other source of on-site portable liquids), until they die, escape or the game leaves development hell and ships (plus the time needed for consumers to find all the bugs, to report them to NISA, for NISA project mangers to throw said report away, for their mangers to tell their 'staff' to simply 'fix it', and to release whatever patch comes from all of that which will only work on the PS4 version; the PC version will simply remain a Gordian Knot of programming, bugs, untranslated gobbledygook, 'Big Holes', and broken events until the end of time).

And now instead of a $40-60 special edition, you get the typical NIS $100 special edition with a partial soundtrack and a bunch of plastic crap. Not that XSeed didn't do that, but it was at least cheaper.

We'll know tomorrow. They're going to have a big conference on all the titles they're working on including CSIII. And they'll be introducing the localization staff personally.

*Sigh* I know the trailer was probably rushed out for the announcement, but watching it compared to similar trailers for Cold Steel 1 & 2 really ticks my excitement down a notch. And I honestly can't tell if NISA is simply outbidding XSEED, or if XSEED no longer wishes to take on what they've admitted were extremely big projects. I'll probably still enjoy it, but I'm not expecting the level of polish the series has had up to this point, in terms of both localization and stability, if Ys VIII and Tokyo Xanadu are anything to go by.

Welp... NIS just put out a trailer for Trails of Cold Steel 3 on their Facebook page. XSeed didn't get it. Poop.

@Annubis

To give a more naunced response, I did read quite a bit of the Wikia, which actually seemed to provide a different summary for the manga/anime and the webnovel on a page-by-page basis, and I certainly noticed some differences, but on the whole, it seems like there's a lot more in this story that I would've found distasteful than I originally thought. I mean, considering how integral slavery is to the overall plot, and the main character's complacency for it despite having our modern world's sensibilities already makes me genuinely hate the protagonist the same way the webnovel iteration of Re;Monster's interpretation of its protagonist ignited so much rage within me - they should know better.

I can excuse Goblin Slayer, because yeah, I'd probably hate those Goblins too, and he has zero reason to ever think otherwise. I can excuse Toyohisa from Drifters because yeah, he's from a different time, and as psychotic as he seems, at least he's getting things done in a world that otherwise seems hilariously incompetant when it comes to stopping the Ends, where their previous attempt arguably just made everything worse by establishing the Fourth Reich.

But I just can't get behind a character who seems to be in it for himself, getting back at characters for entirely petty reasons, and only making the world better on accident so long as he's spiting someone else, while willfully engaging with a system that deprives others of their freedom. We already have politicians for that.
