The Valkyria series is set to be making a comeback soon with the release of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, though now we finally have the official release date. The game will launch exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on May 17th.
To go along with the new release date announcement comes a brand new trailer, which shows off all aspects of the gameplay with the new remastered visuals. The game will cost $29.99 and comes with all previously released DLC, though if you pre-order the game you’ll get the steel book packaging.
Here’s a rundown of the Remastered features provided by the new trailer’s description:
• HD “CANVAS” Graphics Engine – The stunning, painterly graphics return, but this time in 1080p/60fps high definition quality! Battles and cutscenes are conveyed like a vibrant tapestry in motion.
• “BLiTZ” tactical battle system – Part overhead turn-based strategy, part RPG, and part real-time 3rd person shooter, the” BLiTZ” system is an innovative mechanic that makes battles simultaneously strategic and action-packed. Players will command and control their soldiers and tanks as they take on the Empire in 30 different battlefronts.
• Memorable storyline – Set against the backdrop of a world war, Gunther, Alicia, Largo and the rest of the fierce members of Squad 7 fight for personal reasons in the name of freedom, and the hope against all odds of liberating Gallia from Empire control, all in the face of the terrible realities of war.
• DLC Included – Besides the core game, Valkyria Chronicles HD includes all previously released DLC: Hard EX Mode, Edy’s Mission, Selvaria’s Mission, and Challenge of the Edy Detachment.
