The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV

Falcom hasn’t had much of a presence on Nintendo platforms, but that has really started to change with Switch. The company’s biggest franchises – Ys and The Legend of Heroes – are now starting to be made more widely available on the platform.

Nippon Ichi Software has largely been responsible for bringing Falcom’s games to Switch (with Engine Software handling porting). Ys VIII, Ys IX, The Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel III, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV are all on the console thanks to their support. Meanwhile, Clouded Leopard Entertainment are helping to put other entries in The Legend of Heroes series on the system, though they’ve only been announced for Japan and Asia at present.

In a recent issue of Famitsu, Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo spoke with the Japanese magazine about the company’s Switch support. He was joined by Nippon Ichi Software boss Sohei Niikawa with the two also discussing the recently-released Switch version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV.
