Valkyria Chronicles Returns, But Not in the Way You’d Expect

on September 6, 2016 9:51 AM

Actually, if we’re talking about the most veteran among Valkyria Chronicles fans, they’d probably expect pretty much exactly what you’re going to read. While Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and Valkyria: Azure Revolution have helped in making many feel better about how Sega is handling the series, the sprinkling of its characters and imagery as cross-overs with other games (instead of making an actual sequel, or bringing back II and III as long overdue remasters), is well known.

Today we look at just another of those collaborations, with Wargaming’s mobile spin-off of World of Tanks, World of Tanks Blitz.

A trailer was released, and you can check it out below, with details promised for Tokyo Game Show.

At least Valkyria Chronicles II and III Director Takeshi Ozawa says that he hopes that the collaboration will help the series to be better known among tank fans, and this might be an indication that Sega still wants to do something with it, especially considering that so far there aren’t any tanks in sight in Valkyria: Azure Revolution.

Incidentally, while Wargaming isn’t new to this kind of collaboration, they normally do them with anime and manga. This is the first time they do a crossover with a video game series.
