Falcom has released new information and screenshots of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III detailing the new characters Musse Egret and Ash Carbide, and the provincial town of Reaves.
Get the details below.
“How do you do, Professor Rean? I am inexperienced, but I look forward to your class.”
- Age: 16
- Weapon: Magical Carbine
A girl characterized by elegant and bewitching behavior, born to the noble family of count Egret in the western part of the Empire.
She is enrolled in “Class IX: Accounting Division.”
Although she receives good grades and has the grace of a noble’s daughter, there is something unfathomable about her, as she tries to seduce newcomer professor Rean at every opportunity.
She previously attended Saint Astraia Girls’ School in the Imperial capital, but dropped out after the civil war due to various circumstances.
Half a year later, and suddenly aspiring to walk the path of a soldier, she is admitted to attend Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.
“Does it feel good to ride around in The Ashen Toy and work as a government dog?”
- Age: 17
- Weapon: Variable Axe
A young man who grew up in the slums of the entertainment capital in the western part of the Empire, who at first glance is somewhat shady and impudent.
He is enrolled in “Class VIII: Tactics Division.”
During the civil war, he formed a team of hooligans, and nearly killed the brigand that attacked the entertainment capital while fighting to repel them—to the point that even the Imperial Army of Erebonia and Bracer Guild acknowledged his prowess.
However, he turned down all of their solicitations, and instead enrolls in Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School under the recommendation of someone who knows “the past” lost in his childhood.
He has a large build, but a physique flexible as a leopard, and can even bring down higher ranking opponents with his underhanded tactics.
For some reason, he is provocative towards professor Rean, picking a fight at every opportunity.
A scenic neighboring town where Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School is newly established, located in the western outskirts of Erebonian Empire capital Heimdallr.
A certain Baron once ruled the area, but has since fallen, and after that it was provisionally treated as an Imperial territory.
Although it was not damaged much during the civil war that occurred in the Empire, there are residents who have lost their families, and the establishment of Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School has become a complicated thought.
On the other hand, the residents are warmly welcoming the students, and those who’ve moved here are also opening new stores.
Saint Astraia Girls’ School
A prestigious girls’ school in the Imperial capital Heimdallr where only the children of nobles may attend. In The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, Rean’s sister Elise Schwarzer and the royal princess Alfin Reise Arnor attended this school. What could be the reason Musse dropped out of such a prestigious school?
Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School Special Classes
There are nine classes in total at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School. Classes I to VI are regular classes, and the rest are “Class VII: Special Duty Division,” “Class VIII: Tactics Division,” and “Class IX: Accounting Division.” These three classes are treated differently than other classes, and the purpose of their establishment and curriculum also seem to be different.
- Class VII: Special Duty Division – Expected to act as a special duty platoon under professor Rean. Juna Crawford, Kurt Vander, and Altina Orion are its only students.
- Class VIII: Tactics Division – The class that Ash is in. Here, you can study things such as battle-related techniques and how to pilot a Panzer Soldat.
- Class IX: Accounting Division – The class that Towa, Rean’s senpai, is in charge of. They mainly study information and techniques related to logistical support in battle.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan this fall.
