The Legend Of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV was just announced for Switch earlier today, and it's going to see release sometime in 2021. In an interview with Game Informer, Nihon Falcom president and producer Toshihiro Kondo talks about the new gameplay features fans can expect from this installment.
Aside from Rean, other members of the Thor’s Branch Campus will be able to call upon Panzer Soldats. Players will also be able to use powerful Lost Arts, which are from an ancient age and have various affinities. Using these are at the expense of a full EP gauge, but their power is unmatched. We've also implemented full auto mode for the first time. It’s a convenient feature for those players who want to proceed through the story on a lower difficulty level or those who want to see everything the game has to offer.
While not a new feature, I think players should pay special attention to Quests, as IV has the most out of any game in the series. These will tie up some loose threads that have been carried on throughout the entire Trails of Cold Steel series. There are mysteries as well as information on characters who have appeared in the series that will be revealed.
