One of the greatest RPGs of the last generation was Valkyria Chronicles for the PlayStation 3. While it was beloved by many fans, myself included, it failed to have much of an impact. Its sequels, Valkyria Chronicles 2 and Valkyria Chronicles 3, were released exclusively on the PlayStation Portable, with only the former being released stateside.
Fans assumed that Sega had all but abandoned the series but today, we’ve learned that this is far from the truth.
Japanese gaming magazine, Famitsu, is reporting that Valkyria Chronicles will be getting a new entry titled: Valkyria of the Blue Revolution. In addition, the original Valkyria Chronicles will be getting an HD remaster. Both titles will be releasing on the PlayStation 4 in the future.
It should be noted that last month, Sega filed trademarks in both Japanese and English for Valkyria: Azure Revolution. At the time, no information was given other than it was for a video game.
This is all the information we have at this moment. More details about the games such as screenshots and an interview with the developer are set to come to us later this week in the upcoming issue of Famitsu that will be available on November 19. Perhaps then we’ll learn if either or both games would be releasing internationally.
Perhaps now on the PlayStation 4, Valkyria Chronicles will finally get the recognition it deserves. Stay tuned for more as it develops.
