About

It is the year 1935 EC…

The continent of Europa is engulfed in the flames of the Second Europan War between the Atlantic Federation and the Autocratic Eastern Imperial Alliance. Although the Federation struggles valiantly against the Empire’s forces, the relentless imperial military machine threatens to consume them. With victory slipping away, the Federation executes Operation Northern Cross: a last-ditch attempt to capture the imperial capital and end the war.

Commander Claude Wallace and his loyal childhood friends in Squad E are sent to fight for the desperate operation’s success, but they will have to endure harsh bone-chilling elements, waves of imperial soldiers, and the terrifying Valkyria… and unravel a grave truth that will shake them to the core.

Key Features

  • A Coming-of-Age Story in a Time of WarValkyria Chronicles 4 takes place in the same timeframe as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses on a whole new cast of main characters. Players will take command of the eager, young Commander Claude Wallace, engineer/heavy weapons extraordinaire Riley Miller, hotheaded Darcsen Raz, ice-cold ace sniper Kai Schulen, and more. Together, they will experience the painful realities of war–but will the bonds of Squad E’s friendships survive the frozen battlefield?
  • The Next Generation “BLiTZ” Battle System – 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 an explosive 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. Plus, fight the imperial threat with more units on larger-scale maps than ever before.
  • CANVAS Aesthetics – The series’ signature hand-drawn visual style is back and overhauled for the newest generation. Inspired by watercolor compositions, the CANVAS Graphics Engine blends visual elements of reality and imagination to create an expressive world filled with colorful emotions. Watch the journey of Squad E unfold like an interactive painting!
  • The Return of a Legendary Composer – The illustrious Hitoshi Sakimoto, original composer of the Valkyria Chronicles series and countless other emotional epics, returns to provide a sweeping orchestral soundtrack for the game.

  1. The first game quickly became one of my favourites after I tried it out on Steam. I was bummed to find out that its only sequels weren’t even available to me, and existed on limiting hardware that couldn’t capture a lot of the magic from the first game. I really didn’t think we’d ever see another sequel.

    I creamed my pants.

  2. I’ve never heard of this game, nor seen it before, but I got chills watching the trailer. I feel immensely intrigued by this game, and will definitely check it out, once it comes out. Something about the beauty of the art, and the bitterness of war contrast so well, and make the game so interesting.

    1. You can pick up the original on PS3, PS4, and PC. If you have the funs I suggest playing it. Its one of the best Tactical RPG’s of the last generation, i suggest looking up trailers and seeing for yourself. Its a mixture of FPS, T/SRPG, and RTS. I know it seems odd to hear of a first person shooter RPG, but I swear, it works so well. The story is also bery captivating. Its such an under rated game!

  3. As a major RPG fanboy I can’t wait. This was a pleasant surprise. This, Shin Megami Tensei V and No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Back already confirmed for 2018?? Man the Switch is looking like a stud when it comes to Japanese 3rd party support

  4. I remember I watched the anime adaptation of the first game YEARS ago and really enjoyed it, and then two years ago I read somewhere that it was in fact a video game first. (And thankfully at the time I was already in the market for a ps4).

    Er, needless to say, I’m very happy about this. :)

  5. I loved the first game on the ps3 and bought it at a gamestop knowing nothing about the game. It was so damn good and unique that it quickly became one of my favorites and now I’m excited to see the newest one come to the switch.
