  • Falcom wants to meet the expectations of the users who have played the series thus far.
  • The subtitle, “The End of Saga,” was decided because The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is a title that will end the series as a whole.
  • The title logo was made to contain all the elements of the Trails series thus far. The sphere behind the “IV” depicts The Great One and two treasures from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III.

  • The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV ~The End of Saga~ is an extremely dense RPG full of volume from start to finish.
  • While the “Brave Order” and “Break” battle systems from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will carry over in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV ~The End of Saga~, they are being fine-tuned with the goal of a system that has an even greater sense of completion.
  • Since there are undoubtedly more characters than ever before in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV ~The End of Saga~, they are working with care to make sure the story is constructed as a single RPG while also making preparations to highlight each character.
  • The state of the Empire has undergone sudden change due to the curse and general mobilization of the nation. There are also quests as a result of such circumstances.
  • The relationship between each side, such as where they are positioned, will also change. The enemy side will also see various movements.
  • Crossbell Police Department Special Support Section members Lloyd Bannings and Elie MacDowell will begin moving towards the conclusion discussed at the end of The Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki.
  • Renne Hayworth has major involvement with and Tita Russell and Crossbell.
