Sega has announced that Valkyria Chronicles 4 will release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch in North America and Europe, 2018.
The new title will follow the vein of previous entries, set in an alternate version of World War 2 Europe. This time round you’ll be following a different band of heroes, however.
“Players will take command of the eager, young Commander Claude Wallace, engineer/heavy weapons extraordinaire Riley Miller, hotheaded Darcsen Raz, ice-cold ace sniper Kai Schulen, and more,” Sega’s press release says. “Together, they will experience the painful realities of war—but will the bonds of Squad E’s friendships survive the frozen battlefield?”
Valkyria Chronicles 3 for the PSP never made the jump to an English release, but Sega seems to have recognised the series’ appeal to a Western audience as they bring the franchise back to home consoles.
