Sega confirmed this week that Valkyria Revolution, the long-awaited follow-up to the cult classic Valkyria Chronicles trilogy, WILL be sold in America and Europe as well as Japan. A new teaser trailer (embedded below) was provided to prove it.
Don’t expect the same game, however. The Chronicles titles were turn-based strategies, but Valkyria Revolution is more of an action-based combat game. Sega warned us it wasn’t an EXACT sequel and they were right.
Is there a Limited Edition? You bet. The “Vanargand Edition” will only be available for pre-orders and launch copies, and will contain a 1.5-inch pin inscribed with the Vanargand army’s coat of arms, as well as a 12-song soundtrack CD. Sega also lists “a special box,” but the box doesn’t count, Sega.
The vanilla Valkyria Revolution will sell at a nice price of $39.99; the Limited Edition will be priced closer to a typical AAA release. Look for it on PS4 and XBox One June 27.
In the wake of a revolution, Jutland’s elite soldiers, the Vanargand, must band together to defeat the Ruzi Empire and stop death itself–the Valkyria. This grizzled anti-Valkyria squad is equipped with advanced mana weaponry and has the powerful ability to wield ragnite spells to combat this terrifying threat. The unit is comprised of soldiers who have a high affinity for ragnite, and even Jutland’s own Princess Ophelia has joined the ranks. The princess carries the utmost love for her country and has answered the call of duty to liberate those who are suffering from the Ruzi’s tyranny. However, Amleth Grønkjær, the commanding officer of Vanargand hides a terrible secret. Is he friend or foe to the country he has sworn to protect?
