posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The game will debut on September 25 in the Americas, Europe, and Australia. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The game's Switch version will also ship in Japan on September 7. The game launched for the PlayStation 4 on March 21 in Japan.
Sega will release the game in the West with a "Memoirs from Battle" premium edition. The edition retails for US$99.99, and comes with a collector's box, vinyl statue of the "Hafen" tank, 100-page "Claude's Travel Journal" themed artbook, and "A United Front with Squad 7" and "Edy's Advance Ops" DLC adventures featuring the Squad 7 characters from the original Valkyria Chronicles game.
The two DLC items will also be available as add-on items after the game launches.
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.
