Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo had some words to share about the future of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series in a recent interview, and it looks like the next part could release in 2018. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
Here are a few quotes from the interview:
“We had originally planned on ending it after The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, but we thought that it would be rough to end it with just one title and faced a tough decision,” said Kondo.
He added, “Since it ended like that [Trails of Cold Steel III] I want to bring the next title as soon as possible, and hope to release it by next year.”
While plans were to originally end it with the third title of the Trails of Cold Steel series, Kondo reassured that the next one will be the end, “This will truly be the end. We’re working on a conclusion that wraps up all the mysteries of the Empire.”
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is available in Japan for PlayStation 4. A Western release has yet to be announced.
