Sega has announced that its upcoming strategy RPG Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be launching on Switch on September 25, and there are lots of different purchase options to choose from.
This release marks the first time that the Valkyria Chronicles series has released on a Nintendo console, bringing its blend of turned-based strategy and third-person action along for the ride. This latest instalment will benefit from much larger maps and enhanced visual effects than its predecessors, and we were actually lucky enough to go hands-on with the game at E3 if you're interested in learning more.
Pre-order and first-run physical copies of the North American version of the game will come packaged as the 'Valkyria Chronicles 4 Launch Edition'. This edition comes with an exclusive Ragnarok controller skin (which looks fantastic, we must say) for your platform of choice's controller. In Europe, this launch edition will come with a sticker of your canine pal, rather than the controller skin.
There is also a huge 'Memoirs from Battle' Premium Edition which features a model tank, artbook, and DLC content.
Exclusive to the Valkyria Chronicles 4 "Memoirs from Battle Edition"*:
Exclusive Vinyl Statue of the "Hafen" Tank - Triumphantly bursting onto the scene, the "Hafen" tank vinyl statue is ready to conquer the snowy battlegrounds of Europa. More than just a tank, the "Hafen", named after Claude's hometown in Gallia, is a meaningful symbol for all of Squad E's members. This version may not have the firepower of the original, but it makes a great centerpiece for any fan's collection!
'Claude's Travel Journal' Exclusive 100-Page Themed Artbook -Valkyria Chronicles 4's story is told through the photos, notes, and memories captured in Claude's travel journal.
