XSEED Games has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II has gone gold and will launch for the PS Vita and PS3 in North America on September 6, 2016 both physically at retail and digitally on the PlayStation Store for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision which changed the fate of the entire nation at the conclusion of Trails of Cold Steel. Speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember alongside a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation across both the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.
Cross-Save functionality between the game’s PS Vita and PS3 editions remains supported, and save data from the first game grants bonus stats and extra items. In addition, relationships cultivated during the earlier time players spent at Thors Military Academy affect future story elements and allow for more personalized conversations throughout the game.
In Europe, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will be released in fall 2016.
