Sega just released the first batch of screenshots and a trailer of the newly announced PS4 exclusive Valkyria: Azure Revolution.
This game is so beautiful. I will import this if I have to (but I feel fairly certain it's coming stateside). I just wish I could see the combat more. I still have no idea if it's in the same SRPG format as before or it's more of a free-roaming battle system (like Final Fantasy XV). I'm guessing the Valkyria being a songstress will play a theme in the game. She looks like royalty of sorts. I'm so damn interested in seeing where SEGA is going with this game.
VC on ps3 had the best art direction of any game IMO. The power of the ps4 made it look twice as good. But I do have one concern, and that's the over-sized melee weapons. I hope they aren't planning on turning this into Monster hunter or God Eater... Haven't seen any protagonist hold a gun.
Someone from dualshockers said its battle system won't be strategy-based. I'm not a big fan of SRPGs, so if this new Valkyria game is more action-oriented, I'll be cool with it. That said, the Valkyria Chronicles demo intrigued me. If this is SRPG still, this could be my very first strategy-based rpg.
Wait, you haven't played any of the games in the series beyond the demo? You're missing out, mate. The games are fantastic. I literally have 800+ hours sunk into the original on PS3. I promise, it won't take nearly that long to beat it, but I've replayed it so many times because I loved it so much.
SRPG is the one genre that I really can't find myself playing. I tried with Suikoden and FF Tactics, but they didn't convert me. It's just that, to me, the pacing of SRPGs is quite slow; the battle that is. Still, Valkyria Chronicles has that potential to make me play an SRPG.
Could it be add or adhd. You should take adderall for that.
that was part of the fun was playing it tactical and turned based. i hope they keep that
C'mon sega. Make me believe again.
Localize this ASAP!!! Bring it stateside.
SELVARIA PLEASE COME BACK!
I think they said there was a US patent for this and also the remaster of Valkyrie Chronicles remaster.
Looks awesome. Please translate this into English, Sega.
This better come to the west!
the screenshots make it seems like an action jrpg
And it looks awesome
Ivy Valentine, eat your heart out.
Sega did say that they are intent on developing quality games again. Well, this could be the very first, and on a Playstation platform at that! What's next? Virtua Fighter 6? Go!!!
Yes yes yes localize
Localize and you can have my heart.
Beautiful game a must have for me.
It's gorgeous! And that canvas art style! I need it!!
Going to be a great game
