Sega bringing Valkyria Revolution over for PS4, Xbox One

The Valkyria series is continuing stateside next year with the release of Valkyria Revolution for PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One. Released in Japan as Valkyria: Azure Revolution, North American players will be able to purchase the game digitally and physically for PS4 and Xbox One as well as digitally for PS Vita. Neither strictly a sequel or a spin-off, Revolution is set in an alternate timeline from the main series, now based on Europe’s industrial revolution rather than WWII, and replaces the turn-based combat system with a hybrid setup. Combat is in real time, but players will also engage in tactical strategy across multiple battlefields. The story follows five vengeful friends, the Circle of Five, who use their influence to push an isolated nation to fight against imperialist neighbors. As the game plays out, the group will come to be viewed as brave liberators or traitorous murderers. One of the remaining Valkyrur, Brunhilde, is a wild card in the struggle.
