At PAX West 2018, SEGA announced that the very first Valkyria Chronicles game will be released on October 16th in Europe and North America. Just like in Japan, it will be available exclusively via the Nintendo eShop, and there will even be a special discount for players who already own Valkyria Chronicles 4. Unfortunately, it’s not nearly as nice as the one offered in Japan…
Valkyria Chronicles will cost $19.99, but player who also buy Valkyria Chronicles 4 on the Nintendo eShop will get 25% off, allowing them to buy the game for only $14.99. The offer will run until December 17th. Nothing is confirmed for Europe just yet.
In comparison, the Japanese offer lets players buy the game for 500 Yen (roughly $5), and it’s done via a Serial Code at retail, which means that even those who buy Valkyria Chronicles 4 at retail can get the discount.
Here’s a trailer and some details for Valkyria Chronicles on Nintendo Switch:
- Valkyria Chronicles on the Go – Command your troops wherever you go with the versatility and portability of the Nintendo Switch™.
- The Full Valkyria Chronicles Experience – All DLC from the original release of Valkyria Chronicles is included in the base package.
- A War Fought on Two Fronts – Taking place during the Second Europan War, the same conflict featured in the upcoming Valkyria Chronicles 4, Valkyria Chronicles follows the story of Lieutenant Welkin Gunther of Squad 7 as they fight to repel the invasion of the East Europan Imperial Alliance.
- CANVAS Aesthetics and BLiTZ Combat – Fall in love with the unique features of the Valkyria series; the stunning hand-drawn watercolor aesthetics of the CANVAS shader combined with the innovative tactical BLiTZ battle system make for an unforgettable gameplay experience.
- A Legendary Series Needs a Legendary Composer – Series composer Hitoshi Sakimoto brings the battlefield to life with an unforgettable, expertly-crafted soundtrack.
Finally, here’s some screenshots for the game:
