Valkyria Chronicles II Academy Also Trains Students To Use Swords

By Spencer . August 19, 2010 . 11:23pm

imageWhile most characters in Valkyria Chronicles II run on to the battlefield carrying rifles and machine guns, you can train a squad of sword fighters.


Valkyria Chronicles II has a branching class system where players can choose specialties for their units. The mine diffusing Armored Tech class can become a sandbag wall repairing Tech Veteran or melee Fencer. Avan, the hotheaded main character, is a free agent. He can pick any class he wants.


Valkyria Chronicles II comes out on August 31. An English demo is up on the US PlayStation Store now.

  • MGSBigBoss

    • raymk

      Day one buy here for me as well =D. Also inb4swordclassisoutofplace.

    • if you pre order from gamestop they give you 2 free “exclusive” missions

      • MGSBigBoss

        hardly anything, from the looks of those missions its bare bones -.-

  • why would anyone buy a UMD version of this game when you can get it instantly on PSN on day one? I don’t get it.

    anyways, my friend and I are getting it too, VC’s plot was huge and I can’t wait to know exactly what goes on in this one

    the demo could’ve just as easily been a demo of VC I, which arose some mixed feelings in me, however I’m confident this will have enough changes and additions to be worth it.

      For the same price (or possibly less if you shop around), your money actually gets you something tangible that you can put on your shelf. You can lend it to a friend, you can resell it, and it won’t disappear into a void when PSN inevitably shuts down sometime in the future. If you have custom firmware you could even rip the UMD yourself and create a digital copy to play off your memory stick. You might not care about any of that, but many people do.

    • ShinNoKami

      Some people like having game cases on their shelves and game manuals to flip through. :D

    • bugmeknot

      I’ll buy the UMD version for the manual. If I think it’s worth it I’ll also license a digital copy from PSN, a perfect excuse to buy the Hatsune Miku memory stick.
