    If you were hoping to play the first Valkyria Chronicles game before the fourth entry launches later this year, worry not, as SEGA will be bringing Valkyria Chronicles Remastered to Switch consoles in the west. You'll be able to grab it digitally off the eShop on October 16th in North America and Europe for $19.99. If you pre-ordered Valkyria Chronicles 4 off the eShop already, then you get a 25% discount on the original game. As a note, while this is called Valkyria Chronicles: Remastered, just like the other console versions, SEGA has stated that this port isn't exactly the same as the others, though provided no further details on that matter.

    Nice. $20 seems pretty reasonable for the game, though it's a shame that it's a digital-only release.

    No source yet again? I guess ranking up in the ladder comes with certain perks, one of which apparently is stealing news.

    It's a PAX booth announcement, or a PR email. So unless you want me to cage up a SEGA representative and chain them to the footnote of my post, then good luck. Might want to tone down your disgusting attitude a tad there. Big jealous talk from someone who couldn't even create a news post correctly if they tried.

    As I always say.
    If you were hoping to play the first Valkyria Chronicles game before the fourth entry launches later this year, you would have already done that by now because the game was released 10 years ago and already saw 2 re-releases. no need for a 3rd one in a row.

    It's probably to bring more attention to the series, especially to Nintendo fans, many of which probably haven't even heard of the series until now. Giving them the first game in the series is a good entrypoint, and may lead to some picking up the fourth game later on down the line, not necessarily at launch.

    uh huh. I'm sure the lack of the needless, linkless origin source was absolutely killing everyone who read it, and damaged the credibility of everything to ever exist.

    Your passive aggressive whining does no one any favors, especially yourself, so I think you need to take your salt elsewhere.

    I've had this on Steam for probably a few years now, but never got around to playing it. If it's only $20 on the Switch (around £16 like Okami HD I assume?), I might just buy it on that. I've only heard good things.

    This is a good game if you like strategy games like Fire Emblem.

    This game is so good, recommend it to a friend who doesn't like the whole rpg turn based style and now he's totally into this genre

    You are certainly an expert when it comes to stealing news.

    Seem to recall a former mag staff who did that a lot then ragequit when critiqued :unsure:
