The Legend Of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV

JRPG The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV has a reported Nintendo Switch release date in Japan.

The news comes via Ryokutya2089 (translation: DeepL), a blog dedicated to sharing gaming news from physical print media in Japan- in this case reportedly from the latest issue of Famitsu (thanks SiliconEra). They report the game will launch on Nintendo Switch on March 18, 2021.

The game is currently available on PlayStation 4, and 2021 on Windows PC (via Steam), and Nintendo Switch. The Japanese release date may help give some indication of not just the western Nintendo Switch release date, but the PC release date as well.

In addition, Ryokutya2089 reports the game will feature DLC content as part of the game- seven made by Nippon Ichi Software themselves, and two by other manufacturers.

As previously reported, the game acts as the conclusion to the Trails of Cold Steel series. Members of the famous Class VII must unite to save the Erebonian Empire from all-out war. Players Lost Arts, Orbal magic, and giant mechs to win the day.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.


The Ultimate Class Reunion – Boasting the largest roster in series history, heroes from all over seek to join the cause! The heroes of Class VII unite with Crossbell’s Special Support Section and even the heroes of Liberl.

Battle Most Refined – New and returning systems join the already polished combat of The Legend of Heroes series, including the ability to summon giant mechs to the field for devastating attacks, use Auto Battle for more expedient combat, and utilize Lost Arts, the most powerful Orbal magic capable of turning the tide of battle.

Pursuits of the War Weary – In between epic battles, catch a breather with a number of mini-games including returning favorites like Vantage Master, fishing and puzzle games! And introducing new pursuits like Poker, Blackjack, and the Horror Coaster.

The Erebonian Empire is on the brink of all out war! Taking place shortly after the ending of Trails of Cold Steel III, the heroes of Class VII find themselves with the full force of the Empire on the path to domination. Further, the hero of the Erebonian Civil War and Class VII’s instructor, Rean Schwarzer, has gone missing.

Now, the students of Class VII, old and new, must unite with heroes from all over the continent to create the only chance the world has to be spared from total destruction.
