Switch owners get to play a modern classic next month.
While Valkyria Chronicles 4 is due to launch this month for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, the original Valkyria Chronicles, which this one is a follow up to, is only available on two of those platforms. Valkyria Chronicles originally launched for PS3, but was later on ported to PC and PS4 respectively. Switch and Xbox haven’t had that game, ever.
Well, in the west at least. In Japan, Sega did announce a port of Valkyria Chronicles for Nintendo Switch. Now, that Switch port of the first game will be coming westward, too. At PAX West, Sega announced that Valkyria Chronicles Switch will launch in North America and Europe in October, just a month after Valkyria Chronicles 4.
The Switch release in the west will be digital only, but it will also only be $20; if you own Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Switch as well, you get another 25% off of that, so it works out to being a very good deal, to those who want more of Valkyria’s brand of turn based strategy action on their Switch.
Valkyria Chronicles launches on Nintendo Switch on October 16. It’s available now for PS3, PS4, and PC. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
