Valkyria Revolution Coming West in 2017

The next game in Valkyria Chronicles franchise, Valkyria Azure Revolution is going to be released outside of Japan and renamed Valkyria Revolution. The dropping of “Azure” was done for translation purposes and to help differentiate it from Valkyria Chronicles. The press release explained that they wanted to “ensure the two titles stood equal but apart from each other.”

Here are some of the features in Valkyria Revolution as described in the press release:

“A Brush with Death – Turning the tide of battle in Valkyria Revolution is Brunhilde, one of the last of the ancient and powerful Valkyrur, magical beings with near limitless power. She’s bound by oath to the enemy forces and players will have to figure out how to defeat her.
Prepare for LeGION – Valkyria Revolution has a brand new battle system that mixes real-time combat and tactical strategy. Players can take control of the battlefield using brazen combos or cunning tactics and finding a balance between them is the key to excelling in skirmishes.
The Ingenuity of War – Through adversity comes great engineering, and with a besieged homeland, players will have upgrade their existing weapons through branching customization paths.
A New Painterly Look – Valkyria Revolution has a refined look thanks to the new Gouache rendering engine, giving the graphics a unique canvas texture.
Classic Composer – Valkyria Revolution has a vibrant soundtrack brought to life by the incredibly talented composer Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Stella Glow)”

Sega is publishing the game in the Americas, while Deep Silver will be handing the EU release. Valkyria Revolution is expected to launch sometime in Q2 2017 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One. Only the PS4 and Xbox One version will be released at retail and digital stores, the Vita version will be digital only.
