As expected, SEGA confirmed yesterday that Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will be available in the English speaking world this coming spring. The PlayStation 4 retooling of the beloved PlayStation 3 strategy RPG will come in a special case for the first printing, and it will cost gamers $29.99.
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered upgrades the game’s graphics, includes both the Japanese and English audio tracks, and, unlike the PlayStation 3 original, adds trophy support. On top of that, it’s just a fabulous game worthy of playing a first time or for a hundredth time.
However, while we are trilled to be given another chance to play this game, SEGA was mum on the issue of its successor, Valkyria: Azure Revolution. This follow up is in development by Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Wild ARMs studio Media.Vision and is confirmed for a Winter release in Japan. Japanese fans who buy the first shipment of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered even get a demo!
SEGA has not confirmed a demo or the English version of Azure Revolution, leading some worried fans to believe that it will follow in the footsteps of Valkyria Chronicles 3 and not by localized. All in good time, I say.
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered launches for the PlayStation 4 in the Spring. A similar version is already available on the PC through Steam.
