Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe - divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon as they engage in a series of epic battles.
Built upon the new "CANVAS" engine, developed internally by SEGA Game Studios Japan, Valkyria Chronicles' stunning 3D graphics resemble a watercolor painting in motion, taking full advantage of the processing capabilities of the PlayStation 3. The power of the PlayStation 3 also allows the development team to exploit the full potential of this new engine, giving players many different stunning environments to explore. A new type of tactical battle mechanic has been specifically designed for Valkyria Chronicles. Known as "BLiTZ," this gives players freedom to strategically move around the environment and attack enemies using real-time controls, something never before seen in the tactical role-playing game genre. The new "CANVAS" engine technology, the "BLiTZ" battle concept and an epic storyline offers players hours of exciting gameplay.
'BLiTZ' Tactical Battle System. Strategically maneuver your units on the battlefield, then drop down and use real-time controls to dictate the action.
Character and platoon customisation. Choose from over 50 characters to create your own personally designed platoon.

Why can't Sega make more games like this? Really, I bought this not reading what it was about, only because people were raving about it -- and they are totally right!! This role-playing war and turn-based with real-time elements strategy game (it will get you thinking!) is so addictive and you'll love all the characters in the barracks. I won't be letting my copy of this go because it's a story you'll want to come back to again and again. Good graphics, great music, if only they made the sequels on PS3 rather than PSP!
