Valkyria Chronicles 4 PS4 Demo Available Now on Japanese PlayStation Store

If you want to try out Valkyria Chronicles 4 on your own PS4 before the game releases, now its your chance, thanks to a sizable playable demo.

February 25, 2018

As announced on Saturday, Sega just released the playable demo of its upcoming strategy JRPG Senjou no Valkyria 4: Western Front, which will be released in the west as Valkyrua Chronicles 4.

The demo was released exclusively for PS4, and can be downloaded now from the Japanese PlayStation Store. The full download weighs 5.33 gigabytes.

The demo includes the first two chapters of the game, plus one dedicated extra mission (based on the new grenadier class). If you plan on getting the Japanese version of the full game, you’ll be able to transfer your progress.

Of course, the demo is entirely in Japanese, but if you’re familiar with the gameplay of the original Valkyria Chronicles, you shouldn’t have massive issues in clearing it.


The only caveat is that you need a Japanese PSN account to download and install the package. If you’re not familiar, you can easily make and maintain one by following our handy guide.

If you want to see more of the game while you download the demo, you can check out the latest direct-feed gameplay, a recent trailer introducing the characters of the Atlantic Federation, and another showing their enemies.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 will launch both in North America and Europe for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in 2018. It will release in Japan for PS4 on March 21st, 2018 and for Nintendo Switch later in the summer.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
