XSEED Games announced that the remastered The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II for PlayStation 4 is coming to the West on June 4th. European fans of the Legend of Heroes series will have to wait a few days longer, until June 7th. Already released in Japan, the enhanced version of Cold Steel II comes with 4K resolution support and 60 fps targets, besides other graphical improvements. It also comes with a turbo mode, as well as adding several thousand new voiced lines. On top of all that, 100 pieces of DLC are included, and you can play in the original Japanese voiceover if you so choose. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will launch at $39.99 for the digital release or $49.99 for the physical Relentless Edition.

Why does the physical edition cost more, you ask? It comes in a limited steelbook, packs in a pin, a music CD featuring a limited selection of tracks, and has a set of "Sept-Terrion" cards. The physical edition can be preordered through XSEED's store, or through a number of select retailers. Those who played through the first Trails of Cold Steel can transfer their save data over, lending access to some special scenes as the result of your choices, as well as offering some bonuses as well.

Taking place a month after the first Trails of Cold SteelTrails of Cold Steel II continues the tales of the nation of Erebonia, after the fate of the nation was drastically changed. Now packed with a new Overdrive system as well as new transportation and combat systems, Rean must continue his fight to shepherd his home into an era of peace, and right past wrongs. The saga was continued in Trails of Cold Steel III, which is still slated to release in the West later this year. The entire Legend of Heroes arc concluded last year, with the release of the currently Japanese-only Trails of Cold Steel IV: End of Saga. Hopefully, we get more information soon about the rest of the series making the trip westward, but for now, you snag The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II when it releases for PlayStation 4 on June 4th.
