Sega set August 31 as the release date for their portable version of Valkyria Chronicles.
Valkyria Chronicles II stars Avan, a fiery student who joins Lanseal after his brother Leon dies in battle. He’s the newest recruit in Class G, a military academy squad sent into battle. Valkyria Chronicles II uses a lower resolution version of the watercolor-esque Canvas engine and introduces multi-screen battlefields. Check out our impressions of the Japanese version for more details.
Want more Valkyria Chronicles II missions? Gamestop is giving away two downloadable exercise missions as a bonus.
Exercise vs. Class E – An exterminatory war exercise against rival class E using all the areas of Leanbluff Forest. Destroy all enemies in each area to win this challenge.
Exercise vs. Class F – A defense exercise against rival class F. Break through their stonewalling defense and take over their encampment to win this mission.
If Sega sticks to Japan’s DLC plan, Valkyria Chronicles II will have additional missions in the following months.
