Sega just opened a brand new teaser website related to the Valkyria series.
The website, that can be found here, includes no real hints to the nature of the new game, besides the mention that it’s a “New Valkyria Project” and that it will be revealed on November 20th.
Unfortunately, exploring the site’s source code also offers no further clues. The only other element is the image below, that serves as a background.
Another interesting element is that the site comes in multiple languages, including English, indicating a probable worldwide reveal. The accompanying press release mentions that the page will actually be updated every day until the final reveal. It’s possible that we’ll get more clues as the updates roll out. Obviously, you’ll read about anything new that will surface here.
As for everything else, unfortunately, we know nothing. Title, platforms, and other elements will possibly be revealed in a week from now.
The Valkyria Chronicles series debuted in 2008 for PS3, quickly earning fan and critical acclaim due to its tactical gameplay and its charming story, characters and visuals. It spawned two sequels on PSP in 2010 and 2011, but unfortunately Sega never localized the third game.
The first game also received two remasters on PC and PS4, which are definitely awesome.
Recently, we also got a spin-off named Valkyria Revolution. While it was enjoyable, it was a completely different genre, set in a different world. It ultimately failed to live up to the series legacy.
That being said, the series’ creators expressed the intention to continue the original series about a year ago, so there is hope.
You have one job Sega. Don’t screw this up.
