posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sega announced on Monday that it will port its Yakuza 0, Yakuza: Kiwami, and Valkyria Chronicles 4 games to the PC. Yakuza 0 is slated for August 1, with Yakuza: Kiwami and Valkyria Chronicles 4 slated for "later dates." All three games already have pages on Steam, and Valkyria Chronicles 4 is listed with a 2018 release date.
Yakuza 0 (Ryū ga Gotoku 0: Chikai no Basho) shipped in Japan for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2015. Sega also released a free-to-play PlayStation Vita app in the same year. The game shipped in North America and Europe in January 2017. Sega previously announced that the game will not get a PC version. Yakuza Kiwami is a full remake of the original Yakuza (Ryū ga Gotoku) game. Sega shipped the game in Japan in January 2016 for the PS3 and the PS4. Sega released the game in North America on PS4 last August.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, the latest game in the Yakuza series, launched on the PS4 in Japan in December 2016, and launched in North America on April 17.
Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest game in Sega's Valkyria Chronicles strategy game series, launched for the PlayStation 4 on March 21 in Japan, and will launch on the Switch in Japan this fall. The game will ship for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in North America and Europe this fall, and in spring 2018 in Australia (as Australia's spring is in N. America and Europe's fall).
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.
