After some teasing over at Sega’s side, we finally got to know about the latest entry in the Valkyria series. Yes, it is actually Valkyria Chronicles 4.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 Officially Announced
Over the past few days, Sega has been teasing a new entry in the Valkyria series, and the promised moment of its reveal has finally come. The new game is indeed Valkyria Chronicles 4. The English version will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, and will come sometime in 2018.
For Japan, the title will be the usual Senjo no Valkyria 4 (which translates as Valkyria of the Battlefield 4), and it will release for PlayStation 4 on March 21st and for Nintendo Switch later in Summer 2018.
The Valkyria Chronicles series debuted in 2008 for PS3, quickly earning acclaim from critics and fans due to its tactical gameplay and its top-notch story, characters, and visuals. It gave birth to two sequels on PSP in 2010 and 2011, but unfortunately, Sega never localized the third game. After that, the first game received two remasters on PC and PS4, which are definitely awesome.
Recently, Sega also released a spin-off named Valkyria Revolution. While it was enjoyable, it came with a completely different genre and world. It ultimately failed to live up to the series legacy.
I don’t know about you, but as a massive fan of the Valkyria Chronicles series, the past week has been a rather nervous one. While announcing a new mainline game seemed a no-brainer, publishers often surprise us with choices that appear inexplicable.
Yet, this time around we have what I’m sure almost everyone wanted. Valkyria Chronicles 4 is coming, and I couldn’t be happier. You can check out the announcement trailer at the top of this post. Keep in mind, there’s no PC version coming, at least not at the moment.
