Sega Announces Valkyria Chronicles 4 For PS4, Xbox, And Switch

If you're still reeling from this year's disappointing Valkyria spinoff, here's some welcome news: Valkyria Chronicles 4 is happening, and it's coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch in 2018. Don't worry: publisher Sega says the game is coming to North America and Europe, too.

Like its predecessors, Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be set within a fictional twist of Europe during World War II, blending turn-based strategy and third-person shooting as you guide a group of soldiers from battle to battle.

"Valkyria Chronicles 4 takes place in the same timeframe as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses on a whole new cast of main characters," said Sega in a press release.

"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. Together, they will experience the painful realities of war - but will the bonds of Squad E's friendships survive the frozen battlefield?"

Legendary composer Hitoshi Sakimoto will also return for Valkyria Chronicles 4, Sega says.

This will be the first proper game in the series in nearly a decade. Sega released the first Valkyria Chronicles for PS3 in 2008, with a sequel following on PSP in 2010.

A third game, Valkyria Chronicles III, came out in Japan for PSP in 2011 but never made it to English. This time, Sega's not keeping us in suspense.

    Oh god please be like the original. I “hate-platinumed” Valkyria Revolution after pre-ordering it, I’ve vowed never to pre-order anything again solely because of that experience. The original was so good at what it set out to be.

      The anime made me fucking cry.
      Even when I already knew what was going to happen from playing the game.

        And I thought I was a glutton for punishment!

    Please, oh please let the dog be playable. Oh, and I don't care what happens to everyone else, let the dog live at the end rather than go for cheap feels.

      I'm hoping for a section in the game where the dog is driving a tank. Then I can die happy.

    I know it's never going to happen. But I would love it to be a reflection of the Eastern Front in WWII with a horrible cycle of escalating atrocities and an exploration of man's inhumanity to man.

      I also want the female protagonists hair to turn blue and use those lance things.

    I wonder if we'll eventually get this one and 3 on the PC like the first Valkyria?

    That would be awesome if they did!
