Following the localization announcement last December, Sega has revealed that Valkyria Revolution will release on June 27 in North America and June 30 in Europe. The game will be available both physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and as a digital-only title for the PlayStation Vita for $39.99. We also have a new trailer and screenshots for the Valkyria Chronicles spinoff.
PlayStation Blog has more details, including information on the Vanargand Edition of the game, which will also be available for Xbox One.
And we’ve got one more thing to reveal. Loyal soldiers are always rewarded for their service, so pre-orders and limited launch copies of the physical PS4 game will come packaged as the Valkyria Revolution Vanargand Edition in the Americas. This special edition comes with a bold pin inscribed with the Vanargand’s ferocious coat of arms, a 12-track soundtrack by the extremely talented Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Stella Glow), and stunning outer box. Quantities are limited, so grab your copy of the Vanargand Edition on the double!
Those in Europe can also get the soundtrack sampler for early orders, but the pin and special box are North America only.

The Valkyria, the embodiment of death, is returning to the battlefield in Valkyria Revolution , and players will have to do—and sacrifice—whatever is necessary to liberate their homeland. With an engaging story full of political intrigue, a battle system that mixes real-time combat and tactical strategy, a gorgeous visual style, and more, the game will immerse players into the frontlines of a desperate war.
In the wake of a revolution, Jutland’s elite soldiers, the Vanargand, must band together to defeat the Ruzi Empire and stop death itself—the Valkyria. This grizzled anti-Valkyria squad is equipped with advanced mana weaponry and has the powerful ability to wield ragnite spells to combat this terrifying threat. The unit is comprised of soldiers who have a high affinity for ragnite, and even Jutland’s own Princess Ophelia has joined the ranks. The princess carries the utmost love for her country and has answered the call of duty to liberate those who are suffering from the Ruzi’s tyranny. However, Amleth Grønkjær, the commanding officer of Vanargand, hides a terrible secret. Is he friend or foe to the country he has sworn to protect?
A Story about War and Liberation
Taking place in an alternate world based on the European era of industrialization, players will band together with Jutland's elite soldiers, the Vanargand, as they fight against the merciless Ruzi Empire. However, things may not be as black and white as they seem.
A Revolution in RPG Combat
Though it bears the Valkyria name, Valkyria Revolution eschews the original series’ traditional turnbased strategy for a new hybrid of fast paced real-time combat and tactical acumen across battlefields. Balancing deadly attacks and cunning strategy will be the key to victory.
A New Painterly Look With a Vibrant Soundtrack
The world of Valkyria Revolution is brought to life by the unique visual style provided by a new graphical engine and a vibrant soundtrack composed by the celebrated Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger , Stella Glow ).
The powerful drama can be experienced in its original Japanese voice acting with English subtitles or in a brand-new English dub!
