Falcom and Tatsunoko Production announced a collaboration for a Cold Steel anime based on the game's The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series. The anime will take place concurrently with the Cold Steel games but instead focus on characters from the North Ambria region. It will follow new protagonist Lavian Winslet as she joins a Jaegar corps and embarks on an undercover mission to Erebonia.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel – Northern War will be released in early 2023. A release for Western countries has yet to be confirmed.
