Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Valkyria Revolution comes west next spring

Coo, well that's a surprise. In Japan, Valkyria Azure Revolution (many trailers) was handled by Sega, so I figured we wouldn't get much of a sniff, but the Atlus arm of the company is still functioning with the slightly renamed game coming west next year, Deep Silver will publish in Europe.

The Valkyria, the embodiment of death is returning to the battlefield in Valkyria Revolution and players will have to do - and sacrifice - whatever is necessary to seek out their vengeance. That means we get it as digital-only on the Vita. PS4 owners will get a physical release.

Valkyria Revolution is also in a sense a revolution from the traditional Valkyria Chronicles universe, as it's set in an alternate timeline based on the European industrialization era and eschews the traditional turn-based strategy gameplay for a new hybrid of real-time combat and tactical strategy across battlefields. Valkyria Revolution will be available in Q2 of 2017.

Valkyria Revolution Features:

  • 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)
