Sega opened an official English website for its Valkyria Chronicles 4 game on Thursday. The site reveals that the game will ship for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in North America and Europe this fall. The site also lists a spring 2018 release date for Australia, and Sega clarified with ANN that the release will be in Australia's spring (during the fall period in North America and Europe).
The game is slated for the PlayStation 4 on March 21 in Japan, and on the Nintendo Switch in summer in Japan. A Japanese demo is available now for the PS4.
SEGA describes the game:
The continent of Europa is engulfed in the flames of the Second Europan War between the Atlantic Federation and the Autocratic Eastern Imperial Alliance. Although the Federation struggles valiantly against the Empire's forces, the relentless imperial military machine threatens to consume them. With victory slipping away, the Federation executes Operation Northern Cross: a last-ditch attempt to capture the imperial capital and end the war.
Commander Claude Wallace and his loyal childhood friends in Squad E are sent to fight for the desperate operation's success, but they will have to endure harsh bone-chilling elements, waves of imperial soldiers, and the terrifying Valkyria... and unravel a grave truth that will shake them to the core.
The game is set in the same world and the same Second Europan War that provides the backdrop for the original Valkyria Chronicles and Valkyria Chronicles III. While the first three games focused on military units of the small nation of Gallia, Valkyria Chronicles 4 focuses on the main conflict between the main Europan powers of the Federation and the Empire, which is only hinted at in the first three games.
