Japanese RPG fans rejoice, for Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel finally has a Western release date on PS4. This confirmation has been a long time coming, with various online retailers having had the game marked down as a February release since the end of last year. The bad news is that no, it's not coming this month (as if that wasn't already obvious). The good news is that it's not far off: the port's arriving on the 26th March.

A fantastic series of somewhat traditional Japanese RPGs that have deservedly found success on PS3, Vita, and PC, Trails of Cold Steel will hopefully expand its audience on Sony's current-gen console. The second game, Trails of Cold Steel II, is still due at a "later date", while the third instalment, Trails of Cold Steel III -- published by NIS America rather than XSEED Games -- is hitting PS4 this Fall.

Yeah, it's pretty confusing, isn't it? We'll just have to hope that the second title makes it West before the third, or that's going to be a disaster.

Update: Trails of Cold Steel will come to PS4 in Europe just a little later, on the 29th March.
