However, those that need to proceed the Cold Steel saga on PC can achieve this on March 23, 2020.
Cold Steel III continues the story of fundamental character Rean Schwarzer and associates from Class VII navigating tense political drama and the terrors of battle as they develop into younger adults and tackle new roles in life.
