Valkyria Chronicles

Valkyria Chronicles combines strategy elements of conventional tactical role playing games with real-time action sequences. The game is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s, Europe divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who is intent on unifying the continent under its power. Built upon the new "CANVAS" engine, Valkyria Chronicles' ground-breaking 3D graphics resemble a watercolor painting in motion. Gameplay is centered around a new type of tactical battle concept. Known as "BLiTZ," this battle concept gives players unique freedom to strategically move around the environment and attack enemies using real-time controls.

Valkyria Chronicles ( -Gallian Chronicles-, Senj? no Varukyuria -Garian Kuronikuruzu- "Valkyria of the Battlefield: Gallian Chronicles") is a tactical role-playing game developed and published by Sega for the PlayStation 3 in 2008. A Microsoft Windows version was released in November 2014.

The game is set in Europa, loosely based on Europe during the early years of World War II. Because of its abundance of Ragnite ore, which takes the place of petroleum in the game setting, the neutral nation of Gallia comes under attack from the East Europan Imperial Alliance, which is itself engaged in a war with the Atlantic Federation. Players take control of a unit of the Gallian Militia, dedicated to repelling the invasion. The game's visuals, which use Sega's CANVAS graphics engine, resemble a watercolor painting in motion.

Valkyria Chronicles was critically acclaimed and earned numerous awards from several notable video game publications. The success of the game spawned a media franchise, including several manga titles and an anime series. Two sequels were released for PlayStation Portable: Valkyria Chronicles II, and Valkyria Chronicles III.

  • Anime like Valkyria Chronicles?

    hey every one, i'm looking for an anime similar to Valkyria Chronicles? i really enjoyed this anime any suggestions?

    Pumpkin Scissors - fantasy war based on World War 2 about a girl and a big guy Tales of the Abyss - also based on a popular video game and also has a similar feeling to Valkyria Chronicles even though they're different from each other Chrno Crusade - takes place in a similar time setting but it's not about a war Mobile Suit Gundam SEED - back story for the plot is kinda similar to WW2 and it's also about a war with a protagonist who is very special to his army

  • Demons souls or valkyria chronicles? which should i get?

    I like the action vibe of demons souls and the anime style of vc but cant honestly decide. Thanks.

    While I don't know anything about Demon Souls, I do play Valkyria Chronicles. It sounds like a very different game from Demon Souls from what you're saying. If you like the action from DS I'd recommend that over just liking the style of Valkyria Chronicles. VC is more of a strategy fighting sim game. Similar to Advance War series on the DS, Final Fantasy Tactics, Ogre Tactics, etc. It's more free form and not a grid game. As you move your soldiers around, enemies that haven't use all their movement points can shoot at them as they enter their range of weapon. It's very similar to counter top war games and an excellent game, if this is your thing. You've got to plan your attack, match the correct soldiers to fight the correct things (tank killers are not good against infantry, etc) and then be flexible enough to react to the enemy's plans. All in all I love VC and it is one of my all time favorite games, but it's not for everyone. Now while this game has RPG elements, it's is not an RPG in the usual sense and is very definately a war sim/strategy game. Demon Souls, from what I've read, seems to be more of a traditional RPG. I'm most liekly going to be picking this game up based on the reviews, and I'm guessing if you like this style of games you'll at least enjoy VC for its RPG elements

  • Valkyria Chronicles Or Fat Princess?

    Yo, I really need a new game and I have found these 2 games and I have no idea which one to get. Valkyria Chronicles looks like a really good game and I love RPGs. But Fat Princess

    I have heard that Fat Princess is great. But I own Valkyria Chronicles so know it's great. I don't think you will go wrong with either but I think If I saw them both at the same time and had not yet played either, I would go with Valkyria Chronicles.

  • Anime Similar to Valkyria Chronicles, Romance,Action,Comedy,ect........

    I recently watched Valkyria Chronicles and I really liked it. I don't usually watch military anime, but this one was good. I want an anime with Romance and Action in it, and I

  • Eternal Sonata or Valkyria Chronicles? 10 pts!?

    Eternal Sonata or Valkyria Chronicles? 10 pts immedately!? For those of you that have played both games, I was wondering which one I should get for my PS3? I have been wanting to

    I've only played the demo of Valkyria Chronicles, which didn't overly impress me enough to actually buy the game, but I have played Eternal Sonata to completion and I absolutely loved it. It didn't have any trophies, but it had a reasonable amount of romance in it, music was excellent (featuring some classic chopin compositions), and kept me busy for some 40 odd hours. Gameplay was great too, as were the graphics.

  • Which PS3 game is better?

    Between Valkyria Chronicles and Eternal Sonata, which game is better? Thanks

    Valkyria Chronicles, that game is great but I never herd of Eternal Sonata

  • Will valkyria chronicles ever be english dubbed and a a valkyria chronicles 2 anime made?

    They had the english voice actors for the game so they should already have the cast down if they can just use them. I'm guessing all thats needed is for an american company to

    Valkyria Chronicles aired run time was back In the mid-summer of 2009. Since It was a loose adaptation of the game and being 3 years with very little popularity, It's unlikely that they will convert It Into an English dubbed anime. And even IF they do, companies like 4kids/Funimation & Disney XD just ruin the animes with their bad voice-acting, you're better off watching the subbed. As for VC 2, the manga has only gotten to volume 2 out of the general 4, If they make another adaptation anime to the manga/game It could be years before It's released.
