Valkyria Revolution Gets Plenty of PS4 Gameplay Showing New Mission and Airship Boss Battle

on January 13, 2017 8:29 AM

Today Sega presented a quite sizable batch of gameplay of Valkyria: Azure Revolution, that will be titled simply Valkyia Revolution in the west.

The video, which you can see below, showcases a never-seen-before mission titled Temir Highway Defense, and a boss battle against the “Whale” airship belonging to the Ruzhien Empire. The mission can be seen at the 00:59:12 mark, while the boss battle is at the 01:15:45 mark in the video.

The gameplay is narrated by gravure models Yuka Kuramochi (who played the boss battle against the Whale) and  Saki Yoshida, and voice actresses Minami Tsuda (Sara Benner) and Yukiyo Fujii (Helena Andersen). Tsuda san was at the control for the mission.

Incidentally, both battles ended in an S result, which is quite commendable.

We also get a video message from Princess’ Ophelia’s voice actress, Saori Hayami. You can find it at the 00:38:50 mark. A second message from Composer Yasunori Mitsuda can alsoo be seen at 01:30:50. Incidentally, just today we got the announcement that he will work on Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

There are also more funny moments that aren’t exactly bound to the game, like the discussion about the ladies’ breast size at 01:28:40 or Kuramochi-san’s usual salute at the beginning of the video, at the 00:31:10 mark, because that’s Japan for you.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read quite a lot of details about it in my previous articles about  story and characters the LeGION Battle System, and the Vanargand Anti-Valkyria unit.

Today Sega also released a brand new character trailer, which you can see here.

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 in the Spring.
