Valkyria Chronicles 4 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

Valkyria Chronicles 4 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

There's a planned 2018 release date for Japan, North America, and Europe.

After years of waiting, Sega is finally releasing a proper Valkyria Chronicles sequel (the less said about the Valkyria Revolution spinoff the better). Valkyria Chronicles 4 is scheduled to come out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in 2018. Better yet it will be coming to North America and Europe as well.

In the year 1935 EC, Europa is caught up in a Second Europan War between the Atlantic Federation and the Imperial Alliance.Like the previous Valkyria Chronicles, the fourth proper entry into the series will follow an everyman Commander, Claude Wallace, and his childhood friends who join him as part of Squad E.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 brings back the "BLiTZ" Battle System which is a hybrid combo of turn-based strategy and 3rd person action. There will be a new class called Grenadiers, and a new battleship support feature.

Also, composer Hitoshi Sakimoto returns for Valkyria Chronicles 4.

The first Valkyria Chronicles came out for the PS3 back in 2008. While it became a cult-hit that paved the way for two PSP sequels, Valkyria Chronicles 3 never released outside of Japan. Luckily, that won't be the case this time.
