    Sorta in time for the original game's tenth anniversary.

    Unfortunately despite me being the OP, I'm mostly unfamiliar with the IP. But those of you who are, have at it you guys.

    There's also shots of an office which show posters of Yakuza and Sonic Mania isn't that pretty neat guys

    Very happy that this happened.

    I was worried that after the lukewarm reception of Revolution we'd never see a real Valkyria game again.

    My original subtitle for this topic was "Sega does what Nintendoes after a mediocre spinoff" :v

    (The joke/reference is to Metroid Prime: Federation Force)

    What a nice thing to wake up to. But it's also really weird, with 2&3 both being on PSP (and never even getting 3 in English officially) this kinda feels like the /real/ Valkyria Chronicles 2. (A VC2&3 digital remaster might be nice)

    And it's very odd that it's coming to XB1 as well, starting with the 4th game on a console fanbase that may well have no experience of Valkyria Chronicles whatsoever.

    I'm actually genuinely torn between getting this on Switch or PS4. The visual quality will obviously be better on PS4, but with a game that's more artstyle that realism how big will that gap actually be? and if it is negligible, they surely the portability wins right?

    Best possible outcome for this announcement in the universe. Reaction seems to be super positive and everyone's loving this and excited for it. VC has a huge cult following. Must have been the success of VC1 (isn't it over a million sold now?) on PC that prompted this. Sega are killing it lately. Hope the trend continues.

    Also worthy of note is that Sega are announcing another game tomorrow too, an RPG. Speculation is that it's probably mobile so I guess we'll see.

    Got some gameplay, looking like a proper return for form, + new Mortar class

    Since I'm pretty familiar with how it plays, I'm seriously contemplating buying the JP version first and fumbling my way through it until the English version turns up.
