Developed by Nihon Falcom, the Trails of Cold Steel games are dense, story-heavy turn-based RPGs that have developed a dedicated following on both sides of the Pacific. The PS3 version of Cold Steel I has an 86 on Metacritic and Cold Steel II has a 90, so they’re definitely worth your attention. The PS4 versions of the games feature touched-up 4K graphics, dual audio tracks, and more.

Here’s a quick description of the world of Trails of Cold Steel:

Among the nations on the Zemurian continent, the mighty Erebonian Empire has been quick to outwardly stake its claim militarily; yet politically, ugly bouts of internal conflict between the upper class and commoners attempting to rise to power have been steadily intensifying day by day. Rean Schwarzer, like any other citizen of the Imperial Nation, is no stranger to these rising conflicts/ As a seventeen-year-old student preparing for his new life at Thors Military Academy, however, he notices that his crimson uniform differs from the standard ones issued to his peers — typically green for commoners, and white for nobles.

Enter, Class VII of Thors Military Academy. For the first time in the prestigious academy’s history, rank means nothing and skill means everything. With nine hand-picked students of various backgrounds and abilities, Rean included, Class VII readies itself to dive deep into the political quagmire that threatens not only them but the Empire as a whole.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I and II are already available on PC, PS3, and PS Vita (check out Wccftech’s reviews of both games here and here). The games arrive on PS4 in North America and Europe in early 2019.
