Valkyria Chronicles 4 announced
A new entry in the main series is coming next year
SEGA has announced that Valkyria Chronicles series will return to the West in 2018 with Valkyria Chronicles 4, a new mainline chapter in the saga.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 takes place in the same timeframe as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses on a new cast of main characters. Players will take command of the young Commander Claude Wallace, engineer/heavy weapons expert Riley Miller, sniper Kai Schulen, and more.
The part overhead turn-based strategy, part RPG, and part real-time 3rd person shooter "BLiTZ" battle system returns to the field. New features include a new class called the Grenadier, numerous offensive/defensive battleship support options, chances for a unit to have a "Last Stand" action before death, and more.
The series' signature hand-drawn visual style is also back. Inspired by watercolor compositions, the CANVAS Graphics Engine blends visual elements of reality and imagination.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One platforms in the Americas and Europe in 2018.
