NIS America has announced that it is bringing over Nihon Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III this fall, taking over as publisher from XSEED, who published the first two Trails of Cold Steel titles here in America.
The game takes place a year-and-half after Cold Steel II, following the continuing exploits of Rean Schwarzer.
NIS’ involvement is not without reservation. The publisher handled the localization of Ys VIII after XSEED, and NIS did not do a great job.
If you’re not familiar with this side series, be sure to read Kim’s Grind Time column on why you shouldn’t overlook it.
