It’s time to suit up for battle once again, Valkyria fans — Valkyria Revolution has officially released in the West!

The next in Sega’s popular Valkyria series, Valkyria Revolution will have players leading Princess Ophelia, Amleth Grønkjær, and the entire Vanargand squad into battle against the Ruzi Empire and their incredibly lethal Valkyria. The war on the front line won’t be the only one to worry about, however. Amleth, who has sworn to protect Jutland, harbors a dark secret. Is he truly loyal to your cause, or will he end up a traitor? Only time will tell.

Although it’s the next game in the Valkyria line, Revolution aims to mix things up a bit. Departing from the series’ staple turn-based strategy, Valkyria Revolution takes a more hack-and-slash gameplay approach. Players will be able to perform an arrangement of melee and ranged attacks, and strategic shifts in order to turn the tide of battle in their own favor. For even more information, check out the list of key features below:

  • A Brush with Death – Turning the tide of battle in Valkyria Revolution is Brunhilde, an ancient and powerful Valkyria, a fearsome being with near limitless power. She’s bound by oath to the enemy forces, and players will have to discover how to defeat the incarnation of death itself.
  • Prepare for BattleValkyria Revolution has a brand new battle system that mixes real-time combat and tactical strategy. Players can take control of the battlefield using brazen combos or cunning tactics. Finding a balance between them is the key to excelling in skirmishes.
  • The Ingenuity of War – Through adversity comes great engineering, and with a besieged homeland, players will be able to upgrade their existing weapons through branching customization paths with ragnite.
  • A New Painterly Look Valkyria Revolution has a refined look thanks to the new GOUACHE rendering engine, giving the graphics a unique canvas texture.
  • Classic ComposerValkyria Revolution has a vibrant and dramatic soundtrack by the incredibly talented composer Yasunori Mitsuda, who is known for his work on Chrono Trigger and Stella Glow.

Valkyria Revolution is available now for PlayStation 4, Vita, and Xbox One. Hey Poor Player gave Valkyria Revolution a 3/5, praising its storytelling, soundtrack, and large amount of customization, but faulting its rather lackluster combat.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
