Valkyria Revolution confirmed for western summer release

We knew the latest Valkyria effort was coming west, but it looks like Sega - remember them - is picking up the release rather than leaving it to partner label Atlus. After Hatsune Miku's last outing, I thought they'd given up on the Vita. But no, the off-shoot Valkyria Revolution will get a western release at the end of June in digital-only form for Sony's portable along with deluxe PS4 and X1 releases.

The JRPG starts with a revolution, Jutland's elite soldiers, the Vanargand, must band together to defeat the Ruzi Empire and stop death itself in the form of Valkyria. This grizzled anti-Valkyria squad is equipped with advanced mana weaponry and has the powerful ability to wield ragnite spells to combat this terrifying threat.

The unit is comprised of soldiers who have a high affinity for ragnite, and even Jutland's own Princess Ophelia has joined the ranks. The princess carries the utmost love for her country and has answered the call of duty to liberate those who are suffering from the Ruzi's tyranny. However, Amleth Grønkjær, the commanding officer of Vanargand hides a terrible secret. Is he friend or foe to the country he has sworn to protect?
