Emergence at Fextralife writes, "Dark Rose Valkyrie is a JRPG with visual novel elements developed by Compile Heart and published by Idea Factory. Alternative history games give developers a chance to explore a particular culture or period in time but with a twist. We’ve seen games like Resistance and Metro explore events in American and European history and Dark Rose Valkyrie follows that concept by exploring an alternate history of Japan in 1929. The game was released in Japan in July 2016, and is set to release in North American and Europe early next month. We’ve selected it as one of our Top 5 RPGs for the month of June, and have put together this preview to take a closer look at the game."
