Valkyria Chronicles Coming to Nintendo Switch

Sega's World War 2 fantasy take Valkyria Chronicles brings the strategic action on Nintendo Switch console.

We already knew that popular tactical role-playing game Valkyria Chronicles 4 from developer/publisher company Sega is coming to Nintendo Switch handheld console on September 15. Today, at their panel from this year's PAX convention, they announced another critically acclaimed classic title heading towards Switch and it is the original Valkyria Chronicles from 2008, which is currently available on PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 to play.

Players who own VC4 in their Switch library will enjoy a 20% discount at the retail eShop price of $19.99 over the remastered VC title. Last month, a demo version of the game was made available for Nintendo Switch in advance for players to try out the game before making the purchase. These initiatives will hopefully draw audience to this beloved RPG series once more after they finish the fourth installment from the franchise.

Valkyria Chronicles sets in the 1930's Europa, which is divided by two fractions known as the Empire and the Federation. Both are heavily dependent on a rare natural resource called Ragnite and to secure a major deposit of it, the Empire launches an invasion to the neutral Principality of Gallia. Protagonist Welkin Gunther takes charge of the Squad 7 and fights in a prototype tank with Captain Alicia Melchiott. Despite having less combat experience, Welkin manages to win everyone showing his tactics.

Sega also mentions that this one is not the remastered version of the game which came out in 2016 for players to enjoy on other platforms nor did they clarify what version it would be. So, we are not sure yet if it will run at 1080p in 60fps on Nintendo's hybrid console. Maybe it will simply fare the same like VC4 as it is on Switch now. VCR will debut on September 27 in Japan and then on October 16, it will see worldwide release.
