Today Sega showcased a large batch of gameplay of Valkyria: Azure Revolution, that will be renamed in the west simply to Valkyria Revolution.
At the beginning of the video below you can see a playthrough of the recently released PS4 demo, showing the first prologue mission of the game. At the controls is gravure model Saki Yoshida.
Following, we get to the new gameplay, including a look at Jutland’s capital, its vendors and ability customization, then moving on to a story mission titled “Azure Dawn,” where Vanargand will have to “suppress the governor general of Ipseria.” The governor general is actually Amleth’s antagonist Maxim, who used to be Ipseria’s second prince before it was annexed by the Ruzhien Empire.
You can check out the video here, because for some reason Sega decided to disable embedding (I’m still going to embed it at the bottom of the post, in case they change the setting).
Valkyria Revolution will be released in Japan on January 19th for PS4 and PS Vita, while a western release will come for PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One next Spring.
The demo was also released on PS Vita, and you can read how to download it here. Whether you play it on PS4 or PS Vita, you’ll need a Japanese PSN account, and you can read how to create and maintain one on hour handy guide.
If you’re more interested in the original Valkyria Chronicles, don’t worry, as the series’ developers recently promised that the original series isn’t dead, and teased that they’d like to announce something new in 2017.
