When I played the Trails in the skies series, I thought it was slow at first but then it grew to be one of my favorite RPGs with a solid cast , story and played the 3 first games pretty fast. Enter Cold Steel, the first one was lackluster at best but finished it anyway. Tried playing Cold Steel 2 hoping that things will change but nope. Got to chapter 2 and just couldn’t do it anymore. What a disappointment this shit was. Don’t even get me started about how bland and boring Rean is. Wtf happened.

No thanks give it to Xseed please

There anything different about the PS4 port from the PC port?

AFAIK…
PS4 version is the same as the PC version with all the updated content stuffs.
