The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 Steams Over to PC Soon

Cold Steel 3 is coming to PC after all, with a host of enhancements that make it the best version of the game.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 is coming to PC on March 23. It will be available on both Steam and Good Old Games. The news came during Nippon Ichi Software America’s PAX South panel on January 17.

Unlike the original port of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, NISA isn’t handling this one. Instead, Engine Software and PH3 Games are responsible for porting the massive JRPG to PC.

Cold Steel 3 launched back in October on PlayStation 4. The first two games in the sub-series — and all three in the Trails in the Sky sub-series — are all on PC, so fans naturally wondered if and when they could expect a PC port for CS3.

Like all previous PC ports in the series, this one is getting some extra special features, too:

  • Ultrawide screen support
  • Fully customizable key bindings
  • Enhanced visuals
  • Additional High-Speed Mode Options (now up to 6x faster)
  • Auto-Save functionality

In short, it’s easily the definitive edition of the game. Whether it will be getting a demo like the PS4 version isn’t certain yet.

We were rather taken with the third entry in the deep Cold Steel saga, with its expert weaving of plot threads and character arcs. More and better ways to experience this school-saga-meets-war-drama certainly can’t be a bad thing. While more March games might be quite a strain on our wallets, we at least don’t have to worry about spending on Final Fantasy VII Remake until April.
