The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III for PS4 will now release in North America and Europe on October 22.
Back in June, NIS America confirmed that PS4 exclusive The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III would finally be releasing in the west on September 24; unfortunately, this will no longer be the case. NIS America revealed today that it has made the decision to push the release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III back to October in North America, Europe, and Oceania.
In North America and Europe, the new release date is October 22, 2019. Oceania players will have to wait an extra week for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III to release in their region as it will not come out until October 29 there. No explicit reason was given for the delay, with NIS America just saying “NIS America sincerely apologizes to everyone who was greatly looking forward to its release, and would like to thank fans for their understanding and patience as the team is working hard to deliver the best possible experience.” This is not their first delay of 2019 either, as the console versions of RPG Maker MV were delayed back in January by NIS America as well.
While many fans of the popular JRPG series may be frustrated by this delay, NIS America tried to soften this month long delay’s blow by confirming that a demo of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will be released prior to the game’s new October launch date. Even though that was all NIS America could say about it right now, fans are probably just happy that they will be able to try the game early.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III has been available in Japan since 2017, but western players will finally be able to try the PS4 game out on October 22 if they are in North America and Europe and October 29 if they are in Oceania. It can currently be pre-ordered on Amazon.
