The PC version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is due to be released this summer, and it has some features the original PlayStation 3 game did not. So is the PC version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel better than the original?
Publisher XSEED Games released a new video this week via Gematsu that compares the original PS3 version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel with the upcoming PC version.
And I have to say, the newer version is looking even better than the PS3 game, which I loved. Because, let’s face it, when you no longer have to read the main character’s dialogue while other characters are actually speaking, it helps with game immersion immeasurably.
In just the first announcement about the PC game XSEED has said it comes with more than 5,000 more lines of audio of English dialogue. There are also likely to be other improvements and tweaks in the game before the PC version is released.
As for other games on PC in the popular The Legend of Heroes series the first, The Legend of Heroes: The Trails in the Sky is currently available on GOG, and is one of the site’s highest rated games.
The Legend of Heroes: The Trails in the Sky, the 2nd Chapter is also available on GOG, and it’s likely the upcoming The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, the 3rd Chapter, to be released on May 3rd, will end up there as well.
As for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, it is getting two parts — the first this summer, with a second at a later as-yet-unannounced date. So you might want to put aside a couple of hundred hours of free time, as these games are looooooong.
Meanwhile, watch the comparison video between the PC and PlayStation 3 versions below. Yep, I like that English dialogue.
