The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is coming to PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe this fall, publisher NIS America announced. It will feature Japanese and English audio, and English and French text options
Yep NIS America is localizing it and they screwed up YS VIII a lot and had to re translate it all over :( I thought it was going to be the case with the translators of who worked on the XSeed games got laid off a while back. There's be more info regarding it's localisation at PAX South on January the 18th at 11:00am CST. I played the Japanese version of this and the 4th game in Japanese as well. Rean's English voice is back and narrating the announcement trailer PS4 only for now until they likely do a PC release later like XSeed.


Here's the overview of the game below

About
Nearly a year and a half has passed since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then. From the shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the Empire, and even the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past have given way to the embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors Military Academy, Rean has become an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus, a newly-opened academy that quickly finds itself thrust onto the national stage. It is here that he takes the lead of a brand new Class VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into an unknown future. Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization continues to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war…or perhaps something even more sinister.
Trails of Cold Steel III invites players into a world full of intrigue and excitement that is years in the making. They will embark on a whirlwind tour through the never-before-seen lands of the recently expanded Erebonian countryside, and encounter fresh faces as well as old friends familiar to fans of the series. In true Trails fashion, the deep, engaging story pairs with an incredible cast of characters and a combat system refined over decades of innovative RPG worldbuilding. This renowned title has also now been developed natively for PlayStation 4 hardware, a series first.
Key Features
  • Welcome to the New Class VII – Explore the newly annexed lands of the Empire with a brand new squad, and catch up with familiar faces from the past.
  • An Immersive Story – Experience an epic story developed across three titles, and crafted for new and old fans alike. Also includes an interactive introduction to catch up new players to the ongoing story so anyone can dive right in to the world of Trails of Cold Steel.
  • Combat Honed to a Fine Edge – Challenge oncoming threats with a combat system that has been refined over the course of decades. The addition of features like Brave Order and the Break System opens up new possibilities in battle.

Good news. I need to play the first two games before diving into this.
Do you have your PS4 yet? The first two are avaliable on PS3,PC and due on PS4. Yes you need to play those to understand Cold Steel 3 as well as knowledge of the Sky games as well as the Zero No Kiseki series which helps. Massive amount of script the series as a whole Cold Steel 3 alone is more than all 7 Harry Potter Books.

No, not yet. That's crazy about the script size. I wonder if any Final Fantasy games come close.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will be coming to PlayStation 4s in the West in fall 2019.
Yeah recently it's been delayed until October. Looking forward to buying it I played it in JP and I thought it was really good.
That's alright there's still a lot of games I need to play and buy.
