Sega has revealed a Valkyria: Azure Revolution localization. In the second quarter of 2017, the action game inspired by the strategic series will come to North America and Europe as Valkyria Revolution. Sega will handle the North American release, while Deep Silver will bring it to Europe. The title change was made to offer a similar cadence as Valkyria Chronicles and help differentiate it from the series it’s spun off from.
In addition, an extra platform has been added in the transition. Valkyria Revolution will come to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One. It will be available physically and digitally on consoles, but will be a PlayStation Store exclusive for PlayStation Vitas.
Valkyria Revolution is set in a different world and time place and plays more like a Dynasty Warriors game. The Circle of Five are lifelong friends who, due to their quest for revenge, cause an entire continent to go to war. While it is very active and relies on combos, there are some tactical elements. People can customize their skills and weapons as they acquire Ragnite. Also, a Valkyrur, named Brunhilde, will appear as part of the enemy forces. Yasunori Mitsuda, Chrono Trigger and Stella Glow’s composer, is behind the soundtrack.
Valkyria: Azure Revolution will be released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on January 19, 2017.
