I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this. If you never got the chance to play the original Valkyria Chronicles, or the remastered version that came out a couple years ago on the PS4, your excuses have just run out. This morning, SEGA announced Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is coming to the Nintendo Switch, meaning you’ll be able to strategize and battle anywhere you choose.
It’ll launch on the eShop on October 16th and if you’re already bought Valkyria Chronicles 4 (which hits a little earlier on September 25th), you’ll get an automatic $5 off the remastered original! Again, your excuses for not playing the original game have essentially dried up:
Experience the tale of Lieutenant Welkin Gunther, Sergeant Alicia Melchiott, and their comrades in Squad 7 in Valkyria Chronicles on the Nintendo Switch. With stunning graphics from the CANVAS shader, this is the perfect way for fans to experience Squad 7’s story for the first time or rediscover it on a brand-new platform.
Valkyria Chronicles Features:
Valkyria Chronicles on the Go – Command your troops wherever you go with the versatility and portability of the Nintendo Switch™.
The Full Valkyria Chronicles Experience – All DLC from the original release of Valkyria Chronicles is included in the base package.
A War Fought on Two Fronts – Taking place during the Second Europan War, the same conflict featured in the upcoming Valkyria Chronicles 4, Valkyria Chronicles follows the story of Lieutenant Welkin Gunther of Squad 7 as they fight to repel the invasion of the East Europan Imperial Alliance.
CANVAS Aesthetics and BLiTZ Combat – Fall in love with the unique features of the Valkyria series; the stunning hand-drawn watercolor aesthetics of the CANVAS shader combined with the innovative tactical BLiTZ battle system make for an unforgettable gameplay experience.
A Legendary Series Needs a Legendary Composer – Series composer Hitoshi Sakimoto brings the battlefield to life with an unforgettable, expertly-crafted soundtrack.
Will you be picking up the original Valkyria Chronicles on the Switch later this year?
