Sega just confirmed that RPG Valkyria Chronicles – Valkyria of the Battlefield: Gallian Chronicles in Japan – is to be brought to the west as a PS3 exclusive.
Apparently, “Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe – divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation’s 7th Platoon as they engage in a series of epic battles.”
Lumme. It’s being developed by Sega internally. That’s a nice story for a Monday, isn’t it? It’ll be out this autumn.
