    Earlier today during its SEGA Fes event, SEGA made a few Valkyria announcements. They announced that the Switch version of Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be delayed to this fall in Japan, with no word about whether it will affect the Western version's release.

    As a surprise, it was also revealed that the original Valkyria Chronicles will also land on the Nintendo Switch's eShop this fall in Japan. The game will come with all previously released DLCs and will cost 1,990 yen (~$18.5). Those who will purchase the Switch version of Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be able to pick the first title for 500 yen (~ $4.5).

    There is no word about a Western release for the original title as of yet.

    I thought it was alright, but then there was a massive difficulty spike in one of the early levels (chapter seven I think). I didn't care about the game enough to keep on trying until I got through it.

    It's an excellent game. I have no shame in saying I have bought it three times.

    Excellent game, weird game mechanic anyway. And usually, the best ranks when beating a stage are achieved using stupid unrealistic strats. Imo that's the only weak point of the game, it would be better by not allowing such plays.
    (exemple here : ).

    you can tell that missions take way too long when even bullshitting your way through them takes 5 minutes or more.

    i played 2 on the psp and while i generally liked the game, when missions ended up taking like 30 minutes and more, and generally requiring an impossible to win testrun just to learn what kind of reinforcement/special power/trick room the game would throw at you this time, i finally gave up. not unlike fire emblem actually. you seemingly make good progress only to be steamrolled by a bunch of reinforcements that just rock paper scissor your team of choice off the field, and inbetween, one enemy stronghold after the other.
    not to mention all the grinding. the endless, endless grinding

    Good story, gameplay is also nice until you realize that scout rush is so unbelievably broken that the game becomes so repetitive at that point.

    Don't be dumb. People are asking for ports of good games, which is why there are a ton on every system this year. Sony has ported Shadow of the Colossus like eight times by now.

    SoTC has only had 1 port (PS2 to PS3). The PS4 version is a remake. The number of Ports on the Switch is pretty insane.

    Sorry, they ported a port. And nobody bats an eye.

    Not to mention the first Valkyria Chronicles was already ported to PS4 before Switch.

    Remake doesn't equal a port. I suggest watching digital foundary videos on SoTC, it's genuinely interesting at what Bluepoint did with the game.

    The thing is, the Switch is getting a lot of ports. People complained about this with PS4/Xbone proliferation of PS3/360 games and people are complaining about the same thing now. I know I have a preference for new content especially for my Switch which doesn't get as much use as I would like it to.

    Took the words from my mouth. I liked the game but it there are certain mechanics that really needed adjustment. I hope the fourth game won't be like this.

    Both Switch and PS4 are getting a lot of the same ports this year. Spyro trilogy, Dark Souls Remastered, Genesis Collection, MMX Legacy, Don't Starve (Megapack), Darkest Dungeon Ancestral Edition.

    Then there's a list of ports for PS4 this year:
    Everspace
    Hitman: Definitive Edition
    Conan: Exiles
    Super Bomberman R

    And I probably missed a couple.

    Neat, I played the second game on PSP, and a tiny bit of the first game. I might get it on Switch over Steam. It's a fun game to play portable. :D

    spyro is a remake, not a port.
    everspace and bomberman r are modern games, so it makes sense to expand the number of platforms.
    conan exiles isn't a port, the game has been in early access for a year and is finally going to be released.
    genesis and mmx legacy collection, emulated games... I don't know what category should those have but I wouldn't call them ports, because if we follow that logic then the pc has "ports" of everything ever created.
    don't starve was also a current game when it was ported and in fact, the ps4 was the very first console to receive it but vita, ps3 and xbox one versions were already planed and released when done.
    darkest dungeon had its release for ps4 planed and released when done, hence not a port.
    the only shameful port for ps4 is dark souls and even the fans are hating it.

    Honestly you can make an excuse for anything, and I don't have any problem with ports myself, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy in shaming Switch for it when it's commonplace for all modern consoles (and PC).
