XSEED Games has recently unleashed The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II on both PlayStation 3 and Vita at a price of $39.99. It can be obtained in physical or digital format and supports cross-save between the systems.
Those who have played the original game can carry over their save data for additional dialogue options as well as bonus stats and items. Those who haven’t yet tried out the first can pick up the first game at 50% off on the PlayStation Store until September 13, 2016, as well as DLC outfits.
For those unaware, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up a month after the conclusion of the first game. It features speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed ARCUS system as well as a new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation across both land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and even a renewed sense of hope as Rean works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disaray. The relationships cultivated before, for those that transfer the save data, will affect story elements and help allow for more personalized conversations throughout the game.
