The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III - Launch Trailer | PS4.
The game plays as a traditional JRPG with turn-based battles, similar to Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II. An emphasis on speeding up battles was made as well, including making transitions into battle scenes more seamless, and being able to map out more battle commands to specific buttons rather than various menus, though the battles are still primarily menu-based. The game contains a new system called Brave Order which lets players "buff your party without expending a turn." A Break Gauge was also added, where enemies with a reduced Break Gauge are unable to act.
The game is a direct sequel to the prior two Trails of Cold Steel games, picking up one and a half years after the events of Trails of Cold Steel II. The story is centered around main character Rean Schwarzer, now a military professor, as well as his students, and the rest of his military school friends from the prior two entries, notably exploring subjects such as the mysterious origins of Rean's birth, and what others have been up to since the events of the prior games. The game also features appearances from Tita and Agate, characters from Trails in the Sky, a previous story arc within the Trails series, as well as Tio and Randy, characters from Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki.
Rean is now an instructor instead of a teacher at the Thors Branch Campus, teaching the next generation of Class VII. The new class consists of Juna Crawford (a girl from the former state of Crossbell), Kurt Vander (whose family lost their duty to protect the Imperial family), Altina Orion (an agent of the Intelligence Division and former foe of the old Class VII), Ash Carbide (an orphaned delinquent) and Musse Egret (a noble student hailing from the Lamare province). Assisting Rean in his teaching duties include former student council president and Thors upperclassman Towa Herschel, Randy from Crossbell's Special Support Section, and Major Michael from the Railway Military Police. The former Noble Alliance general Aurelia Le Guin is appointed the branch campus principal with Professor G. Schmidt acting as an advisor.
