PlayStation Critics’ Choice Sale Discounts Trails of Cold Steel I, II & IV
During PlayStation’s currently ongoing Critics’ Choice sale, publishers XSEED Games, NIS America, and developer Nihon Falcom have discounted The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I, II, and IV. Trails of Cold Steel III has been excluded from this sale for whatever reason.
These games are a sub-series of the Trails franchise, taking place after the Trails in the Sky saga. Further, the first two Cold Steel entries run roughly parallel to the Crossbell games, Trails from Zero and Trails to Azure.
Store links to each of the discounted titles are listed below:
- Trails of Cold Steel I – Base Price ($39.99) – Discount Price ($19.99)
- Trails of Cold Steel II – Base Price ($39.99) – Discount Price ($19.99)
- Trails of Cold Steel IV – Base Price ($59.99) – Discount Price ($35.99)

The next localized entry for the franchise will be Trails from Zero.
Trails from Zero has players take control of protagonist Lloyd Bannings and the rest of the Special Support Section as they aid the citizens of Crossbell City with various tasks and gradually uncover a deep-seated corruption at the heart of the city with criminality at its core.
Alongside the strategical turn-based combat fans have expected from the series, the addition of cooperative attacks with party members makes the bonds between the Special Support Section an active ingredient in combat potential. This release boasts a High-Speed mode, which prior localized Trails entries contain. This functionality allows players to speed past cutscenes, combat, and exploration for whatever reasons they deem fit.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is releasing for Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam in Fall 2022.
The Limited Edition of Trails from Zero’s localized release is currently available to pre-order for U.S. and European customers.
Merchandise retailer Pin Box is selling various official Crossbell-related goodies.
