Today Idea Factory International announced that the formerly PS4-exclusive JRPG Dark Rose Valkyrie is coming to PC via Steam. The game is known in Japan as Black Rose Valkyrie, and it was originally released in 2016 (with a western launch in 2017).

The store page is already available, and the release will come on April 10th.

One of the most interesting points of the game is the charming character design by Kosuke Fujishima, known for the Tales series and for the Oh My Goddess! manga.

If you want to learn more about the game, you can check out an official description below.

Featuring the talents of Tales of series scenario writer Takumi Miyajima and Tales of series character designer Kosuke Fujishima, this JRPG appoints you to lead an elite military force known as ACID (Anti-Chimera Interception Division) to defend humanity from enemies transformed by the mysterious Chimera Virus! Fight in a real-time battle system alongside your teammates–but don’t let your guard down. Investigate your allies to expose the traitor infected by the virus, before it’s too late!

Key Features

  • Take the fight into Overdrive! Characters can transform into their stronger split personalities mid-battle, but be strategic – too many transformations will lead to Fatigue!
  • Customize Combos! Customize weapons and attack combinations for each character, and do more damage with Riot Combos, Simultaneous Attacks, and more!
  • A Traitor Amongst You! Depending on your choices, a team member will betray you. Find the traitor in visual-novel style interrogation sequences, and change the game’s ending!
