Valkyria Revolution Coming Westward for PS4, XB1, and Vita Time for a revolution. 12.14.16 - 2:44 PM
Sega has announced that Valkyria: Azure Revolution will be coming to the West in Q2 2017 under the name Valkyria Revolution. The change in title has been made for consistency's sake with the localized title of Valkyria Chronicles, and it also helps to indicate that this is a different breed of Valkyria game. Deep Silver will be handling publishing duties in Europe, and the game will be releasing on the Xbox One in Western territories, as well as digitally on Vita. Below, you can see some new media and a plot synopsis from Sega.
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...
