Rofl. Hard to say whether or not its a good thing or a bad thing that they're moving away from making an SRPG for this one. On the one hand, being an SRPG was what made the original trilogy stand out from the rest of the pack, but on the other hand, the devs were never particularly good at making a well designed SRPG as evident by things like making the first game's A-Rank shorthand for 'Alicia Rush' Rank.

That said, the characters look to be designed for a generic JRPG, so let's see where this goes.


Also lol @ Japan getting a PS4 port of VC1 just to rival Steam's port of VC1.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Sounds interesting and prequel-ish. Though the battle system seems to be a hot mess of SRPG and RPG mechanics. I'll keep my eyes on it as I'm game for another entry in the series even if they are dropping the strategy bit. I always do love games and stories that draw heavily from Norse myth as well.

Looks like Valkyria Chronicles is getting a "remaster" or GOTY version for PS4...

For Japan

I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I need to see gameplay.  I had a tough time visualizing the game as described in the article.

^ Well, that's something, but.... still not sure how this is going to play.

A teaser trailer approaches with winter 2016 release!

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

appearently this game is being done by media vision wich alone is enough to get my attention and get me to overlook the fact that it's not an srpg.

Normal is not something to aspire to, it's something to get away from.

The third main VC was done by Media.Vision as well, I believe.

Well, at least one thing is coming back from Valkyria Chronicles.

Okay, this reveal trailer and talk of action combat has me super nervous about this game.  Hopefully I'm getting all worked up over nothing, but I really miss the grounded tone and character designs of the original game.  Granted, we've only seen three characters so far, but I"m getting a way more fantastical/mystical vibe instead of the heavy military themes from previous entries.  Not to say there weren't fantastical elements before, but I'd rather be playing a solider with a gun (or a squad of soldiers) instead of a dude/dudette with a sparkly sword.

Am I just being crazy and reading too much into this stuff, all?  Maybe it's just a case of a bad/misleading trailer...

Yeah I definitely want to get this one, I'm not really clear on the whole SRPG vs. traditional JRPG thing people have mentioned in relationship to the game, but it just doesn't matter to me played many fun JRPGs and SRPGs just depends on how it's done and Valkyria hasn't really let me down so far so...

I think it may possibly be part of the point given that it's a prequel. In the past, maybe the fantastic elements of the WWII-esque era of the first VC were more pronounced, and only became less so due to the good guys discomfiting the more fantastic elements of the series' universe.
