Following its recent ESRB rating, NIS America has announced that both The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III and Trails of Cold Steel IV from Nihon Falcom are coming to PS5 in a double pack. The games are currently available on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch in the West. Trails of Cold Steel IV is a fantastic and massive JRPG that is a great conclusion to a story that is worth experiencing. Read my review of the PS4 Pro version here. We featured it in our best soundtracks of 2020 and best PS4 games of 2020. Read my review of the PC release here and Switch version here.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III and IV PS5 physical release
NIS America has confirmed a Deluxe Edition physical release and a special limited edition. I hope all DLC is included with save transfer, but I wouldn’t expect the latter given NIS America’s recent PS5 ports of the Caligula games or Ys games that had no save transfer.

What about Trails of Cold Steel I and II on PS5?
The localization of those two games was handled by Xseed Games, so new ports would likely depend on that publisher.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III and IV are out now on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms. They will release in early 2024 for PS5.
