WorthPlaying: Valkyria Chronicles Developer Interview

WorthPlaying writes: "Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe - divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon as they engage in a series of epic battles. At a recent press event we sat down with producer Valkyria Chronicles Ryutaro Nonaka.

WP: What inspired the art style of the game? Valkyria Chronicles reminds us a lot of Clover's Okami. Both look a lot like moving paintings.

RN: We didn't have such in terms of games or CG. However we did take in some of the atmosphere and image of "Sekai Meisaku Gekijou" (World Masterpiece Theater, quite a few members of Ghibli came from here), a series of traditional Japanese animation.

In order to express the warmth, nostalgia, and naivety, we chose not to use ordinary cell-shading.

CANVAS is what made that possible; hand drawn, water color like graphics."

first time i ran into the game like a 3rd person shooter without going through the tutorial and hated it caused i died really fast. After playing it again, and this time going through the tutorial i found myself liking the game a lot. Now this game is on my list to get.
