Sega have announced Valkyria: Azure Revolution will be coming to North America and Europe as Valkyria Revolution. As well as the title change, the western release will be seeing an additional Xbox One version alongside the PS4 and (digital only) PS Vita versions.
Here’s Sega’s overview of the game:
All it takes is a single spark to start the inferno of war, and in the story of Valkyria Revolution, players will experience that firsthand. Five lifelong friends consumed by personal revenge plunge an entire continent into a terrible war, sacrificing the lives of countless innocents for a cause based on twisted half-truths and outright lies. This “Circle of Five” use their combined influence in their political and military positions to motivate their small, economically blockaded homeland to rise up and become a powerful resistance against its imperialist oppressors. Will the Circle of Five be remembered as heroic liberators, or will their selfish motives expose them as traitorous conspirators who sacrificed untold lives just to carry out a personal vendetta? Players will watch this history unfold in Valkyria Revolution and find out the truth behind the events…
Valkyria Revolution is part of the same series as the Valkyria Chronicles game, but it’s a revolution in more than just name only. This time, the game is set in an alternate timeline based on European industrialisation and replaces turn-based strategy for hybrid real-time combat and tactical strategy across battlefields.
Valkyria Revolution releases in Q2 2017 in North America and Europe, for PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One. You can read our previous coverage of it here.
