According to the latest issue of Famitsu, information from which was complied and translated by Gematsu, Valkyria Chronicles Remaster will launch for PS4 in Japan on February 10 along with downloadable content and trophies.

The new title in the series is called Valkyria: Azure Revolution and a demo for the game will be included with the HD remaster of the original title and the full game is slated for release in Japan on PS4 during winter 2016.

According to the Azure Revolution’s director Takeshi Ozawa, the new title in the series will be an RPG with a real-time system.

“Initially, we were considering real-time strategy, but we went with an RPG because we think that’s what more users will want to play,” Ozawa told Famitsu. “The concept of the battle system and the sensation of the battlefield are the same, but because it’s an RPG with simulation elements, you can experience the battlefield through a different perspective.”

Similar to an RPG where players “go into dungeons,” Ozawa said players will prepare for battle at their base, go out into the field to complete objectives, and return to the base.

Action battles will be “conducted by setting commands to buttons,” and the party limit will be five.

“You control one of them, and the rest move based on a set thought process,” he added.

Trademarks from SEGA popped up last month, basically outing Valkyria: Azure Revolution as Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria, roughly translated as Valkyria of the Blue Revolution.

A western release was not confirmed but if you need a fix, the original Valkyria Chronicles was released on Steam last year.
