posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
SEGA Europe's Dan Sheridan hinted at a Western release for SEGA's Valkyria Chronicles Remaster PlayStation 4 game in a SEGA Central video on Wednesday. In the video, Sheridan says, "A trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Remaster on PlayStation 4 was recently released. But what does this mean for us? Will we see it in the West? Tune in next week to find out more."
In addition, Sega noted on its Facebook page that it will announce a new game on Thursday, hinting that it is for "fans of the classics."
The remastered version of Sega's PlayStation 3 game is slated to ship on February 10 in Japan.
First printings of the Valkyria Chronicles Remaster game will come with a product code for a "Battle demo version 1.0" of the upcoming game Valkyria: Azure Revolution (Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria), which is slated for winter 2016.
The original Valkyria Chronicles games are set in a fictional reimagining of 1930s Europe. In the first game, the Empire invades the neutral nation of Gallia to claim its resources. The game focuses on the soldiers of Squad 7, a platoon in the Gallian conscript Militia, who fight back the invading Empire. The second and third games in the series focus on different Gallian military units.
Sega released the first Valkyria Chronicles game on the PlayStation 3 in Japan, Europe, and North America in 2008, and released Valkyria Chronicles II on the PlayStation Portable in 2010. Sega also released Valkyria Chronicles III on the PSP in 2011, but did not release it in the West. Sega released Valkyria Chronicles on the PC in November 2014.
