Nothing’s holding Class VII back anymore! NIS America announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV download issues have been resolved. People who had pre-ordered a copy of the game from the PlayStation Store should be able to download and play it as usual.
Here is NIS America’s tweet confirming that all is finally well and people who had called dibs on an early digital copy can start going through Rean, Juna, and the rest of the Thors’ students and alumni’s last adventure as usual.
The download issue has been resolved. Users who purchased this should be able to select download on their system and be able to access the game. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time! https://t.co/2QUd5PFRtF

For those who missed it, an issue on the PlayStation Store first prevented people who had pre-ordered a digital copy from pre-loading the game. Then, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV download issues went a step further and prevented people with pre-orders from downloading the game after it launched, even if it showed up in their library. NIS America issued multiple updates on the situation on Twitter, alerting people it knew something was wrong and was working with Sony to fix things.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is immediately available on the PlayStation 4 in Japan, North America, and Europe. It will appear on the system in Australia on November 3, 2020. The Nintendo Switch and PC versions will launch in 2021.
