Sega’s bringing out the big guns, as it announced the western release of Valkyria Chronicles 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch for next year. The Tactical RPG will feature an update to the BLiTZ battle system as well as a return to the series’ hand-drawn visual style.
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.
While North America didn’t get the last numbered installment of the series, we’re still happy that the fourth chapter is coming soon. Check out the trailer above, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
