[Update]: The latest trailer shows off what the story in Trails of Cold Steel IV will be about.

Trails of Cold Steel III has only just made its way to PC alongside some highly positive reviews, and already I have more great news to share! In a rather brief announcement, Nihon Falcom has revealed that Trails of Cold Steel IV is being developed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch!

Expect to see the largest roster of characters in the entire series, with plenty of fan-favorites returning to the battlefield once more. The combat itself is also being spruced up, and much like the characters, it'll feature a combination of new and old ideas. The same trend applies to the out-of-combat activities as well since Trails of Cold Steel IV will be adding an assortment of new minigames, along with some of the more popular ones from before like Vintage Master.

While the recently posted announcement trailer doesn't go into much detail, it will at least give you an idea of the sort of visual style of Trails of Cold Steel IV is going for, as well as what characters might be making a return. Have a look:

Trails of Cold Steel IV will be coming to PlayStation 4 at some point this Fall 2020, though no exact release date has been set just yet. As for the PC and Nintendo Switch versions, they will be lagging slightly behind the PS4 version and will release in 2021.

Once an official release date has been set for the PC version I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you can learn more about Trails of Cold Steel IV over at the official website.
