From the Hands-on: "Valkyria Chronicles (not to be confused with Valkyrie Profile) is a new Tactical RPG from WOW Entertainment and Sega. The storyline focuses on a fictional continent, based on Europe of the 1930's. Several ideologically-opposed countries have gone to war over Ragnite, a fuel source and potent explosive. Gallia, a neutral country described as a cross between Switzerland and Saudi Arabia, becomes a battleground because of its rich supply of Ragnite. The writers have put a focus on coming up with characters that you will fall in love with and adding little touches that will make you care about them by the end. Every character has a distinctive personality, and their interests and relationships will actually affect the gameplay. "
