Idea Factory International announced that their PS4 RPG Black Rose Valkyrie is headed Westward in Spring 2017 as Dark Rose Valkyrie. Here are some more details about the game.
1929 – It was the year of the outbreak. In masses, normal people were transforming into inhuman creatures called Chimeras. The cause: a mysterious virus brought to earth by a meteorite, known as the Black Garnet, which crashed there long ago.
The Chimera Virus in its beginning stages would wipe out 3% of the world’s entire population. In a state of national emergency, Japan became a closed nation in an attempt to stave off the pandemic. A covert military agency known as ACID was established to combat the remaining Chimeras in country.
Time passes. ACID establishes a special unit known as Special Force Valkyrie in order to eradicate the Chimera that threaten humanity to this day.
