1929 was the year of the Chimera Virus outbreak. This Spring 2017, defend the world from Chimeras as Asahi, the new leader of Japan’s covert military agency (ACID) in Dark Rose Valkyrie! Featuring the talents of Tales of scenario writer Takumi Miyajima and Tales of character designer Kosuke Fujishima, this action RPG for the PlayStation 4 system features real-time combat as well as an overdrive mode to gain the edge in battle! As the story develops, you must seek out the traitor through a visual novel interview system in your unit before it’s too late.


  • Take the fight into Overdrive! – Characters can transform into their stronger split personalities mid-battle, but be strategic – too many transformations will lead to Fatigue!
  • Customize Combos! – Customize attacks for each character, and do more damage with Riot Combos!
  • A Traitor Amongst You – Depending on your choices, one team member will betray you. Find the traitor in visual-novel style interrogation sequences, and change the game’s ending!

The official website adds that the outbreak in 1929 saw normal people transforming into creatures called Chimeras. The virus was caused by a meteorite, known as the Black Garnet, and it wiped out 3% of the world’s population. The ACID was formed to fight the remaining Chimeras, and a special unit known as Special Force Valkyrie was formed within the ACID to help with the task
