The Nintendo Switch console has recently seen a high influx of popular video game ports to its system. Now, to the delight of fans, developer Nihon Falcom, and its global publisher NIS America have just revealed a solid Switch release date for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 this 2021.
In 2018, Nihon Falcom launched the final installment of the Cold Steel tetralogy in Japan first. Diehard fans of the Trails series had to wait long and hard before they could finally play The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4, which was only released around the world in October 2020. And even then, player access was very limited as the title was locked behind PlayStation 4 exclusivity. Now, with the game finally hitting other platforms and coming to the Nintendo Switch, fans will only have to wait a few more months to bear witness to the series’ finale.
In a recent Tweet, NIS America shared that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 will finally be launched on the Switch this April 9, 2021. Reminding players of what has been going on since the last game, fans were treated to a short video that highlighted the game’s main narrative and environmental setting. The video trailer also featured returning characters in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4, which will surely induce a sense of nostalgia for players, making them remember the great storytelling which has made games such a great series to follow
NIS America also shared a follow-up post that highlighted that a new collector’s edition of the game will also be made available for purchase. With the official website already updated, hardcore fans can now have a Nintendo Switch version of all the physical bonuses that come with the game’s Frontline Edition.
With Nihon Falcom busy with a new Trails title this 2021, hopefully, the Trails of Cold Steel 4 port will be enough to tide fans over. As the company has a tendency to launch its English versions years after, fans may have to wait a couple of years for the next installment in the Trails series.
