On November 11th, 2016, NIS America announced that their game, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, is now available in Europe on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita both as a physical and as a digital release!
Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the deciding battle that altered the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia. You can expect the same hectic, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system that’s making its return. All the bells and whistles that you will undoubtedly remember are coming, alongside the new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation for both the sea and the sky, new allies to aid you in battle, new dangers for the players to face, and a reborn sense of hope as Rean does his very best to correct the wrongs that led the country to chaos!
Game data from Trails of Cold Steel carries over to the sequel, resulting in bonus stats and extra items while also remembering many relationships made during the earlier times spent at Thors Military Academy, which should allow for more personalized conversations throughout the game’s story.
Bond with your allies, as it pays off, especially with the Combat Link System, which provides a huge array of combat benefits, like healing, guarding, and more! The new Overdrive mode also allows for linked characters to attack up to three turns in a row, which gives you some more strategic options.
