After SEGA released Valkyria Chronicles on Steam last year to a very receptive PC audience, fans were clamoring for more of the series to make it to our shores. SEGA returned the favor and gave us Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on the PlayStation 4 in May this year (see our review), which was excellent.
When SEGA of Japan announced Valkyria: Azure Revolution would release in Japan this January, the discussion turned to whether SEGA would eventually release it in the West.
Today, SEGA and Deep Silver have announced they will publish Valkyria Revolution in North America and Europe, respectively, this spring on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One. The game will come in both physical and digital formats for the PS4 and Xbox One, while it will be digitally only on Vita.
SEGA announced a publishing agreement with Deep Silver in July to bring its games to Europe, so this is no surprise to see Deep Silver publishing it across the pond.
