NIS America has now confirmed this The Legend of Heroes: Traces of Cold Steel IV will arrive in North America and Europe on April 9th. A release will follow in Oceania on April 16.
The same title was first released on the PlayStation 4 in 2018, followed by a Western launch last year. Here’s a roundup of what to expect from NIS America (via Gematsu):
The Erebon Empire is about to go to war! Shortly after the end of Trails of Cold Steel III, the Class VII heroes face the full force of the Empire to stop its path of total domination. In addition, the hero of the Erbon Civil War and class VII instructor, Rean Schwarzer, has disappeared. Now the students of old and new Class VII must team up with heroes from all parts of the continent to create the only chance that the world is spared from total destruction.
The ultimate class reunion – With the largest roster in series history, heroes from around the world are trying to join the cause! The Class VII Heroes team up with Crossbell’s Special Support Section and even the Heroes of Liberl.
Battle most sophisticated – New and returning systems join the already elaborate battle of The Legend of Heroes series, including the ability to summon giant mechs for devastating attacks on the field, use Auto Battle for more purposeful battles, and Lost Arts, the most powerful orbal magic ever use to turn the tide of battle.
Tired of persecutions of war – Take a breather between epic battles with a range of mini-games, including recurring favorites like Vantage Master, fishing and puzzle games! And introduce new activities like poker, blackjack and the horror coaster.
