Sega announced at the "Sega Fes" event in Tokyo on Sunday that it has delayed the Nintendo Switch release of the Valkyria Chronicles 4 game in Japan from this summer to this fall.
The game launched for the PlayStation 4 on March 21 in Japan. Those who purchase the first printing edition of Valkyria Chronicles 4 for Switch will also be able to purchase a download version of Valkyria Chronicles for Switch at 500 yen (about US$4.60). Valkyria Chronicles for Switch is also slated for this fall.
Sega will release Valkyria Chronicles 4 in English on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch this fall.
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.
