Valkyria Chronicles Remastered Western Release Confirmed For PS4, New Screenshots Revealed

Originally released for PlayStation 3 in 2008, Valkyria Chronicles is a strategy RPG that combines real-time, turn-based, shooter, and role-playing mechanics.

Valkyria Chronicles on PS4 will run at 1080p and 60 fps. It will also include all previously-released downloadable content, including Hard EX Mode, Edy's Mission, Selvaria's Mission, and Challenge of the Edy Detachment.

The price will be $29.99/CA$44.99 (no price was announced for the European and United Kingdom territories) and for now, there's no exact date so we'll have to be happy with "Spring 2016".

Valkyria Chronicles is a bit of a modern classic, depicting a huge war across Europe - a decidedly Western theme, here executed with Japanese art design and gameplay sensibilities. Although peaceful Gallia remains neutral in the conflict, its citizens will need to defend home and country against the inevitable invasion.

HD “Canvas” Graphics Engine - The stunning, painterly graphics return, but this time in 1080p/60fps high definition quality! The game focuses on the soldiers of Squad 7, a platoon in the Gallian conscript Militia, who fight back the invading Empire. It will be available as a physical disc release and as a digital download on the PLAYSTATION Network.

Over in America pre-orders will get a rather lovely looking steelbook.

The first retail run of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will come in a "collectible Squad 7 Armored case" in the Americas, aesthetically inspired by the squad's trusty Edelweiss tank prototype. The Japanese publisher has also revealed that pre-ordering the game will net you a limited metal case, which features Squad 7 in all of their glory.

Take a look at the trailer below and tell us what you think.

The remastered version will cost $30 United States dollars when it's released this spring.
