Finally, a new Valkyria game! Sega has announced Valkyria Azure Revolution for the PlayStation 4 though this week
s Famitsu magazine.
Of course all the announcements and details were in Japanese so we have had to rely on online translations (thanks Gematsu). Alongside the announcement, a story outline was also shared that refers to an azure mineral Ragnite, a country named Jutland, and issues like freedom and suppression.
With the discovery of the azure mineral Ragnite, the powerful Rus Empire achieved rapid industrial development and expanded its territory. Jutland, a small country, is econmically blockaded by the large country, and advocating “independence and freedom from colonial rule,” strikes the empire army’s base.
Three characters that have been confirmed for the game are:
- Amleth – The protagonist. The commanding officer of the Jutland Kingdom’s elite Anti-Valkyria Unit.
- Ophelia – The heroine. The princess of the Jutland Kingdom.
- Brynhildr – A Valkyria sided with the Rus Empire that stands before the heroes.
Moving on, the developers also confirmed that Valkyria Azure Revolution is going to be released in winter next year.
Alongside that, Valkyria Chronicles Remaster has also been confirmed for PS4; the title will release on February 10, 2016 for 4,990 yen.
