Nihon Falcom announced on Thursday that it will release The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I: Kai -Thors Military Academy 1204-, a PlayStation 4 port of its The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel game, on March 8 in Japan.

The port will offer a 60fps frame rate and 4K support. It has added upgraded background music and a "high speed skip mode" for the story.

The game is compatible with save data from the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita version, so players can pick up where they left off. It is also compatible with save data from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III to unlock bonuses in such as costumes, max Bonding Points, and 300,000 Mira.

Nihon Falcom also noted that its Sen no Kiseki (Trails of Cold Steel) series has more than one million copies in print.

The company had announced earlier this month that it planned to release The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II for PlayStation 4 during the current fiscal year.

The first The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel game shipped in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in September 2013. XSEED released the game in North America for both consoles in December 2015, and NIS America released the game in Europe for both consoles in January 2016. XSEED Games also released a PC version of the game on August 1. This version added more than 5,000 new voiced dialogue lines, which is about a 50% increase compared to the PS3 and PS Vita versions.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II shipped in Japan for the PS3 and PS Vita in September 2014. XSEED Games released the sequel in North America for both consoles in September 2016, while NIS America released it in Europe for both consoles last November.
