Other characters include Zeit, a dog-like beast who can communicate with humans; another “Arc en Ciel” member, Ilya Platiere; A-rank bracer Arios MacLaine; Vander family head Matteus Vander and his second wife Aurier Vander; and Ouroboros member F. Novartis.

No announcement has been made regarding western releases for any of these three titles, though NIS America recently revealed that Trails of Cold Steel IV is coming to PlayStation 4 in the west later this year and to Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021.
