The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 has been rated by ESRB. The game is expected to launch on March 23 for PC and Spring 2020 for Nintendo Switch.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 is the first game in the series to debut on the Nintendo Switch. It is also coming to PC where the first two games have already released. XSEED Games hasn’t given a definitive release date for the Nintendo Switch version but the PC version is expected to launch on March 23.
Trails of Cold Steel 3 has been rated for both PC and Nintendo Switch by ESRB. This includes the standard edition and the extracurricular edition for Nintendo Switch.
According to the Amazon listing, “Extracurricular Edition is packed with a 20 page softcover art booklet highlighting secret art from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, a striking lenticular art card, and an alternative cover art.”
ESRB has given the game a T for Teen rating along with sharing the following description for it.
This is a role-playing game in which players follow soldiers as they attempt to uncover secret plots and prevent a war. From a third-person perspective, players explore fantasy settings, interact with characters, and engage in battles with enemy soldiers and creatures (e.g., fish-like monsters, robots, jaguars). Combat is turn-based, with players selecting attack moves from a menu before watching brief cutscenes of their fighters slashing swords. A handful of cutscenes depict splashes of blood (e.g., a character with a bloody chest wound); in one sequence, blood-splatter effects occur during combat with fish-like enemies. The game contains some suggestive material: a character groping a female character’s chest under her armor/chest plate, with accompanying dialogue (e.g., “Hmm, the armor makes ’em seem small, but they’re actually about as big as Lady Bell’s.”); a student flirting with her teacher (e.g., “A student and her instructor alone in a quiet classroom…Truly an ideal setting.”). A few scenes depict characters drinking alcohol; one scene shows a character smoking a cigarette. The word “sh*t” can be heard in the game, and a character can be seen holding up his middle finger.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 first launched for PS4 last year. It is coming to PC on March 23 and judging by the ESRB rating, it can also launch for the Nintendo Switch soon.
