Okay yes, it’s still spring, but summer is coming soon, and that means another long-term marathon on our Twitch channel. Last year, Scott gave us Xenosummer, playing all the Xeno series games leading up to Xenoblade Chronicles 3‘s release. This year, with The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie coming up on July 7th, he’s diving into Trails for a second time, with the Summer of Cold Steel II! That means three months of Trails games, multiple giveaways for viewers, and more! The marathon kicks off TODAY, so check out the marathon schedule at the end of this post. In the meantime, here’s how it will work this year:
Between today and early July, Scott will be playing Trails of Cold Steel I, II, III, IV, and Trails into Reverie upon release, and just to make things spicy, he will be playing on Nightmare mode. Upon completing each game, he will give away a prize to one lucky winner. To keep things both interesting and interactive, entries are earned by finding ways to help kill off Rean.
There will be both channel commands and community methods, and participating will give people entries in the giveaways. Scott will be playing by some rules, such as requiring Rean to always be in the active party when possible, and he will have to follow channel commands such as muting (stop casting spells for a set time), seal (stop using techniques for a certain amount of time) forcing certain party members, etc. If chat works in tandem and Rean dies, then everyone that helped in battle gets another ticket they can redeem when the giveaways come around.
So, watch more, interact more, and you get more chances to win.
Scott will also have some “stretch goals” for the duration of Summer of Cold Steel II to make things even more exciting, especially for regular viewers. If, as a community, we hit 75 congruent viewers during this marathon and finally reach Twitch Partner status, then Scott has committed to doing, as he puts it, “additional stuff that I have never wanted to such as cosplays (Rean etc.), playing games that I dislike after the marathon is over, and a few other surprises.
