If you’ve been wanting to get into The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, Nihon Falcom’s classic RPG series, then now might be the right time. The first two games are on sale for PC users via Steam. On top of this, publisher XSEED Games has released updates that also add Japanese voiceovers to both games.
That means you can play both RPGs with their original voice actors (or just select an alternative if you don’t like the English voiceovers). Update 1.6 for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel also adds an online leaderboard measuring total victories, Angler Points, Academic Points, and more to compare with friends. Other improvements to the graphics, text, and voice, along with a higher resolution UI font are also available, among other things.
Update 1.4 for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 also brings an online leaderboard and higher resolution UI font, along with the Japanese voiceovers. Players will also be available to natively load modded textures if they so wish. Both games are also available on PS3 and PS Vita, with PS4 versions of the same out in early 2019 for the West.
