Valkyria Chronicles proved to be lackluster in sales, but was critically acclaimed for it’s style and gameplay. Though less then a stellar commercial success, SEGA has faith for Valkyria Chronicles series. Valkyria Chronicles 2, has just been given a North American release.
Summer 2010 has been the set date for Valkyria Chronicles 2, which is a little bit of a wait compared to the Winter 2009 release for Japan. Here’s a description for the title:
The year is 1937 EC. Two years later, the ashes of the Second European war still glow in Gallia’s history. But even peace is a fragile happiness – and hearts that once fought side by side are not forever friends.In the midst of this peace appears a group known as the Gallian Revolutionary Army, swearing to topple the current government – in a lightning fast coup, they arm themselves with the best of both Gallian technology and soldiers.
What was once a small but strong unified country is instantly plunged back onto the battlefield. But the day and age of the last war’s heroes is already fading out – with families to protect and children to raise, they are the ones who must now be protected. While numbers split and tensions rise, the spotlight shines to a handful of up-and-coming students at a Gallian Military Academy.
As civil war begins to rage across the country, morality and war clash with passion and ideals. But this time the distinction between blue and red is not so simple – nor will it ever be. Gallia once stood as a defiant beacon of hope against a giant empire… but can the country now defend against its own?
