What is the Trails of Cold Steel NW about?

Trails of Cold Steel: Northern War explores the timeline between Cold Steel II and III, focusing on the politics between North Ambria and Erebonia. The story follows Lavi, Martin, Iseria, and Talion, who go on a mission to infiltrate the Erebonian Empire. Familiar faces from the Thors Military Academy are set to make an appearance in the mobile game, which offers a larger worldview compared to the anime of the same name.

If you didn't already know, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is a JRPG series developed by Nihon Falcom and follows the story of the beloved Class VII of Thors Military Academy as they make amends with Erebonia's complicated political system and unimaginable dangers that lurk in the shadows. The combination of fantasy and mecha in a school setting offers an experience like no other, with the most likable cast of characters, unforgettable NPCs, and a legendary dad tier list that chronic fans will always remember and love.

Most of the happenings within the Cold Steel series only cover Erebonia, but The Legend of Heroes houses a massive and complex world explored across other games within the same franchise.
