Sega to Release Valkyria Chronicles 4 in 2018

Sega's Valkyria series is receiving a new installment, the company announced recently. When they know they can't win without a bold move, the Federation executes Operation Northern Cross, a final attempt to capture the imperial capital and end the war.

After Valkyria Revolution adopted an action-RPG bent, Valkyria Chronicles 4 will return to the turn-based/real-time hybrid BLiTZ battle system of the original trilogy.

But this game focuses on a totally new aspect of casting main characters, as said by the Sega in a press release. Three other characters have been shown: heavy weapons technician Riley Miller, Darcsen division officer Raz, and sniper prodigy Kai Schulen.

You step into the shoes of Commander Claude Wallace and his childhood friends. Plus, fight the imperial threat with more units on larger-scale maps than ever before.

Visually the game looks pretty good, but it's probably one of the few games that probably would benefit from being in 4K, which is definitely possible on PC... if it were coming to PC.

Meanwhile, the Grand Ole Opry took to Twitter to thank Tillis "for the songs, stories and years of incredible entertainment". His stutter became a trademark that Tillis mined for laughs, although it disappeared when he sang.

Valkyria Chronicles is a popular Japanese tactical game which has a surprisingly strong following in Western territories.

The first thing that we know is that when the game first hits Japan, there will be a special edition released called the Valkyria Chronicles 10th Anniversary Memorial Pack.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is now scheduled for a Japanese PlayStation 4 release on March 21, with a Switch release coming later in summer.

Fans of the series will have to wait until next year's release date to get their hands on the game, but Shacknews will keep you posted on any news from SEGA about Valkyria Chronicles 4 as it breaks.
