Valkyria Chronicles - Summary

Valkyria Chronicles, the first game from SEGA Studios - Japan to utilize the groundbreaking “CANVAS” graphics engine, features a stunningly unique visual style resembling a watercolor painting in motion. Created exclusively for the Playstation 3, this epic role-playing game also marks the debut of the “BLiTZ” battle system, which combines tactical RPG gameplay with direct character control common in action games.

In this epic adventure set in 1930s fictitious Europe, you assume the role of Welkin, a heroic commander who leads his small platoon against two neighboring enemy nations on the brink of war. As Welkin’s small country is engulfed in battle, the “Valkyria,” an ancient race with destructive powers, emerges in the invading faction. Faced with this new threat, Welkin and his troops gather their courage to fight as never before for their freedom and a better future.

Sad really, they reward us for supporting the franchise by taking it away to the PSP to make cheaper more Japanese orientated games. At least release it digitally and add tropies!
