NIS America has announced the release date for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III.

You can read an overview & view a new trailer below:
Nearly a year and a half has
passed since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then.
From the shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the
Empire, and even the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past
have given way to the embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors
Military Academy, Rean has become an instructor at the Thors Branch
Campus, a newly-opened academy that quickly finds itself thrust onto the
national stage. It is here that he takes the lead of a brand new Class
VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into an unknown future.
Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization continues
to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war…or
perhaps something even more sinister.
Trails of Cold Steel III
invites players into a world full of intrigue and excitement that is
years in the making. They will embark on a whirlwind tour through the
never-before-seen lands of the recently expanded Erebonian countryside,
and encounter fresh faces as well as old friends familiar to fans of the
series. In true Trails fashion, the deep, engaging story pairs with an
