One of the PlayStation 3’s most sadly overlooked titles gets a second chance.
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered out now – launch trailer
Valkyria Chronicles released on PS3 in 2008 and did not set the world on fire, but it deserved a great deal more attention than it got. It’s not just the delicate visuals and unique alternate history setting; it’s a terrific strategy RPG.
Following a very welcome PC port, Sega has finally answered prayers and produced a PS4 version called Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. Viddy the launch trailer above and absorb these bite-sized facts before rushing off to the shops to do what is only right.
- HD CANVAS Graphics Engine – The stunning, painterly graphics return, but this time in 1080p/60fps high definition quality. Battles and cutscenes are conveyed like a vibrant tapestry in motion.
- BLiTZ tactical battle system – Part overhead turn-based strategy, part RPG, and part real-time 3rd person shooter, the BLiTZ system is an innovative mechanic that makes battles simultaneously strategic and action-packed. Players will command and control their soldiers and tanks as they take on the Empire in 30 different battlefronts.
- Memorable storyline – Set against the backdrop of a world war, Gunther, Alicia, Largo and the rest of the fierce members of Squad 7 fight for personal reasons in the name of freedom, and the hope against all odds of liberating Gallia from Empire control, all in the face of the terrible realities of war.
- DLC Included – Besides the core game, Valkyria Chronicles HD includes all previously released DLC: Hard EX Mode, Edy’s Mission, Selvaria’s Mission, and Challenge of the Edy Detachment.
