From XSEED:


The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, known in Japan as Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki, builds on Nihon Falcom's acclaimed Trails franchise by improving on the series' formula while delivering the same sort of expertly told narrative series fans have come to expect. Taking place on the same continent as fan-favorite Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel is the first game in the series to explore Erebonian soil, giving players a chance to delve deep into the inner political conflicts of this oft-mentioned and powerful empire.

In the game, players take on the role of specially-selected elite military students at a time of great turmoil, enjoying school life and bonding with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, then utilizing those abilities via speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed "ARCUS" system. This new story arc in the Trails series also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series. Best of all, the epic storyline can be unraveled with Cross-Save functionality between the game’s "PSVita" system and "PS3" system editions, allowing players to play at home or on the go.

Since its still topical, if you're curious about what we thought of Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter, you can read the review by our resident Falcom expert Derek here. Then you'll be adequately prepared for when Trails of Cold Steel braces your PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita this December.
