NIS America and NIS Europe have announced that the acclaimed JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will be coming to the Nintendo Switch platform. RPG fans will be able to get their hands on the game this spring. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III runs at a locked 720p resolution and 30 frames per second in both docked and handheld mode. This edition comes with all of the downloadable content found in the PlayStation 4 version making it the complete experience. There will also be a demo on the eShop nearer to the game’s launch. Here’s the details:


Nearly a year and a half has passed since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then. From the shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the Empire, and even the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past have given way to the embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors Military Academy, Rean has become an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus, a newly-opened academy that quickly finds itself thrust onto the national stage. It is here that he takes the lead of a brand new Class VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into an unknown future. Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization continues to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war…or perhaps something even more sinister.

Trails of Cold Steel III invites players into a world full of intrigue and excitement that is years in the making. They will embark on a whirlwind tour through the never-before-seen lands of the recently expanded Erebonian countryside, and encounter fresh faces as well as old friends familiar to fans of the series. In true Trails fashion, the deep, engaging story pairs with an incredible cast of characters and a combat system refined over decades of innovative RPG worldbuilding. This renowned title has also now been developed natively for PlayStation 4 hardware, a series first.

Key Features

  • Welcome to the New Class VII – Explore the newly annexed lands of the Empire with a brand new squad, and catch up with familiar faces from the past.
  • An Immersive Story – Experience an epic story developed across three titles, and crafted for new and old fans alike. Also includes an interactive introduction to catch up new players to the ongoing story so anyone can dive right in to the world of Trails of Cold Steel.
  • Combat Honed to a Fine Edge – Challenge oncoming threats with a combat system that has been refined over the course of decades. The addition of features like Brave Order and the Break System opens up new possibilities in battle.

  1. Finally ! Been waiting for a trails game to come to switch. Hopefully they release the first two as well. Knew it was only a matter of time. Now this gets my hopes up to play trails in the sky as well.

    1. Wasn’t really a fan of the first one when it released but I might watch out for the trilogy if they come to the switch – I’m happy that you got the game you wanted :)

      1. This is nice, but I’d be a lot more stoked if this was an announcement for a Trails in the Sky Trilogy port. Those are some of the best JRPGs I’ve played in years, I’d love to have them on the Switch.
