Valkyria: Azure Revolution
Format PS4, PS Vita Publisher Sega Developer Media Vision ETA 19 January 2017
96This follow-up to superb military strategy-RPG Valkyria Chronicles ditches the grounded, World War II-aping setting in favour of a rather more fantastical world, in which nations clash over a supernatural substance called Ragnite and god-like Valkyrias walk the land. Basically, you’ve still got guns, but now you’ve also got giant JRPG swords too. As before, you’ll manage your team and your headquarters before heading out for combat missions, which feature Fire Emblemstyle permadeath – if a soldier dies, they’re gone forever, and you’ll miss out on their story.
