Today Sega released a new free DLC for its recently-launched JRPG Valkyria Revolution.

The DLC, titled “Magic Warrior, His Name” includes a new fully voiced mission that sees the game’s hero rival Maxim becoming the playable protagonist.

The mission requires finishing the game before it can be played. Once you clear the mission, Maxim will remain unlocked as a payable character in the main game.

You can check out a few screenshots of the mission at the bottom of the post, and if you already have the Japanese version of the game, you can download the DLC here for PS4 and here for PS Vita. As a caveat, it will remain free only until March 15th. After that, it’ll be sold for 200 yen.

Incidentally, we also hear something quite interesting. Sega and Gust announced a collaboration between Valkyria Revolution and Blue Reflection.

The respective character designers Hiro Kiyohara and Mel Kishida will create an illustration together by drawing each others’ heroine as they meet at the hot springs. The illustration will be revealed at a later date.

At the moment Valkyria Revolution is availabnle only in Japan, so we don’t have any information on how the DLC will be distributed for the western release, which will come for PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One in the Spring.

If you want to read more about Valkyria Revolution, you can find quite a lot of details about it in my previous articles about  story and characters,  the LeGION Battle System, the Vanargand Anti-Valkyria unit, and the mecha fighting for the Ruzhien Empire.
