More popular among players than in the press (at least in France), The Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel II Download marked a turning point in the politics of Falcom. The Japanese developer is strengthened on the international level, which already allows him to further export its catalog as evidenced by the recent announcement of a location of Tokyo Xanadu for early 2017. But before that, we must go through The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. The first part was criticized (rather rightly) for its lack of rhythm, the priority for this sequel was to give a little pep to the trilogy.
Legend of Heroes Trails Cold Steel II begins exactly where The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel ends (so far so good). Rean is therefore with only his company Valimar newly acquired “mecha”. Isolated and lost, it will only aim to find his companions scattered around the world. Only here, at the end of the lightning war led by the faction of the aristocrats, they control almost the entire Empire of Elbonia. The members of Class VII, as well as all the students of the Thors Academy, take the maquis and enter into resistance with the firm intention to liberate the occupied territory. Once established, Rean and his companions will attempt to destabilize the enemy and allow the reconquest of lost territories.
This general narration of Legend of Heroes Trails Cold Steel II undoubtedly constitutes a progress compared to the precedent: the politico-military aspect is very well brought and directed. The theme of the reconquest is very strong and will delight the fans of the series Valkyria Chronicles. If The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel was an effective representation of the 30s, this sequel makes some excellent parallels with the 40s, including the provisional government embodied by the very young Alfin. The idea of finding the old characters little by little also has this little exhilarating side that is reminiscent of the cult passage of Final Fantasy VI. The stages of storytelling are well built, with a time of stop and development by character and region, but with this time more intensity in the unfolding. Many revelations will be made and the personality of the heroes is greatly enriched. If you’ve loved them in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, you’ll love them even more here. Even though here again the beginning and the end are more intense than the middle, it is obvious that Falcom has found the right structure to tell his stories, something he will further perfect in Tokyo Xanadu.
No great J-RPG is built without particularly convincing antagonists, and this sequel is very strong in the matter: in addition to the vicious and unscrupulous aristocratic staff, the game puts you face to ten mercenaries at the once overpowering, charismatic and ultimately just as endearing (if not more) than your own characters. They too will see their personal story developed in depth. Needless to say, the clashes between you and these rivals are particularly compelling and again, they are part of the legacy of the J-RPG of the 2000s. In this respect, let us underline the absolutely brilliant epilogue which brilliantly overturns the perspective of the scenario and his boss of “end” incredible to a point that you can not imagine.
If The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel was desperately linear, his sequel wins greatly in freedom and content. First and foremost, you are now at the helm of the Courageous Proud, and can make you feel at home in the liberated areas. The player is thus able to attack the additional missions or to search for secondary characters always entrenched in the different regions. Once on board your aircraft, they will offer their services by expanding the facilities: shops and training centers will be a great help to strengthen your team. You now also have a gleaming fully customizable sidecar to ply through the newly opened roads between the known localities of the first.
If this gives a new meaning to the side quests, mini-games are not left out and are more integrated into the adventure. The game of cards, cooking and fishing are gaining interest, this being particularly true for the latter since one can return to all the water points to complete his catch. This suite also introduces among other good ideas a lotto and snowboarding challenges whose inspiration is obvious. In short, the distractions are numerous and Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel II valid there another key aspect for a good J-RPG..
Another important and exciting addition, secondary characters from Legend of Trails of Cold Steel Heroes become playable. It is not less than 8 characters that add to the 10 of the previous episode! This is the case for example of Elise, Claire, Sarah (and others that we will discuss below), which in addition to the pleasure of playing characters previously inaccessible, brings greatly in wealth and strategy as they all have abilities and a style of play of their own.
