Arrives on the same day as Valkyria Chronicles 4 for Switch.
Remember when Sega revealed that the first Valkyria Chronicles would be releasing for Nintendo Switch in Japan around the same time as Valkyria Chronicles 4? It turns out the Switch version of both games is coming out on September 27th 2018. This was confirmed by today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu.
Japanese consumers who purchase Valkyria Chronicles 4 will also avail of a discount voucher of 5oo Yen for the first game. Interestingly, Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be releasing in North America and Europe on September 25th so really, that week might as well be devoted to the series. Given that Valkyria Chronicles 4 didn’t exactly set the sales charts on fire in Japan, it will hopefully see better success stateside.
When will Valkyria Chronicles head to the Nintendo Switch in the West? Sega has yet to confirm a release date but the fact that Japan has a more solid window could help. It’s also possible that porting and localization are underway as we speak. We’ll have to wait for more information in the meantime.
