Valkyria Revolution

Sega released a new video showcasing Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono TriggerXenogears) discussing Valkyria Revolution’s soundtrack. In the video, the scale of the game’s soundtrack is displayed by the performance of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. Along with the classic feel brought on by the orchestra, Australian-Japanese singer Sarah Alainn also contributed to several songs.

In other news, Sega provided details on digital pre-order bonuses. Depending on if you are in the Americas or Europe, your pre-order incentive will be different. If you digitally pre-order in the Americas, you will receive The Formation of Vanargand and The Ring of Contract DLC Scenarios, 30 ragnite shards, and a collection of special ragnite to use in combat (Time Flux+, Heal Field+, Fall Earth+, and Shine Calibur+).

Sega describes Valkyria Revolution:

In the wake of a revolution, Jutland’s elite soldiers, the Vanargand, must band together to defeat the Ruzi Empire and stop death itself–the Valkyria. This grizzled anti-Valkyria squad is equipped with advanced mana weaponry and has the powerful ability to wield ragnite spells to combat this terrifying threat. The unit is comprised of soldiers who have a high affinity for ragnite, and even Jutland’s own Princess Ophelia has joined the ranks. The princess carries the utmost love for her country and has answered the call of duty to liberate those who are suffering from the Ruzi’s tyranny. However, Amleth Grønkjær, the commanding officer of Vanargand hides a terrible secret. Is he friend or foe to the country he has sworn to protect?

Sega previously announced a special physical copy of Valkyria Revolution, the Vanargand Edition. The limited launch copy comes with a pin with the Vanargand coat of arms on it, a 12-track soundtrack, and a nice collector’s case.

Valkyria Revolution releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PlayStation Vita on June 27th in the Americas, June 30th in Europe. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have physical copies, the PlayStation Vita version is digital only.
