LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (16th September 2009) –SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that Valkyria Chronicles™ II, is coming exclusively to the PLAYSTATION® portable. PSP owners will be able to experience the highly acclaimed mix of distinctive visuals and addictive gameplay first seen in Valkyria Chronicles™, one of the most highly reviewed tactical RPGs ever to appear on the PLAYSTATION® 3 computer entertainment system.
The story of Valkyria Chronicles II takes place two years after the conclusion of the original game. A group of young Gallian Military Academy cadets find themselves plunged into a bitter civil war when the newly formed Gallian Revolutionary Army stages a coup. As the epic drama unfolds in the game, players will experience stories of friendship, love and growing pains during a time of war and revolution.
“Valkyria Chronicles received widespread critical acclaim when it launched on PS3 last year,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd. “It has quickly become one of our most respected franchises, so we’re delighted to be able to continue the saga on the PSP. We hope that fans of the series will enjoy the freedom of experiencing Valkyria wherever they are and that a new audience will be able to discover the universe on their PSPs.”
The “CANVAS” engine, originally developed internally by SEGA Game Studios Japan for Valkyria Chronicles™ on the PLAYSTATION 3, is being fully redesigned for the graphical capabilities of the PSP. This incredibly distinctive engine will power over 20 new distinct and visually stunning environments within which players will have hundreds of different missions to explore.
Valkyria Chronicles’ “BLiTZ” battle system has also been re-designed to offer players the 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.
Valkyria Chronicles™ II will be available for the PLAYSTATION® Portable in summer 2010. For more information about Valkyria Chronicles II, please go to www.sega.com/valkyria-chronicles-2. For press assets, please visit www.sega-press.com.
