Found 29th Jan 2010Made hot 18th Feb 2010
Valkyria Chronicles 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 Federations 7th Platoon as they engage in a series of epic battles.

Built upon the new "CANVAS" engine, developed internally by SEGA Game Studios Japan, Valkyria Chronicles stunning 3D graphics resemble a watercolor painting in motion, taking full advantage of the processing capabilities of the PLAYSTATION 3. The power of the PLAYSTATION 3 also allows the development team to exploit the full potential of this new engine, giving players many different stunning environments to explore. A new type of tactical battle mechanic has been specifically designed for Valkyria Chronicles. Known as "BLiTZ," this gives players freedom to strategically move around the environment and attack enemies using real-time controls, something never before seen in the tactical role-playing game genre. The new "CANVAS" engine technology, the "BLiTZ" battle concept and an epic storyline offers players hours of exciting gameplay.


I'm tempted to buy a spare copy just becasue it's so good.


GOTY 2008 from me

One of the best games on the PS3 IMHO, overlooked by most people, just like Ico was on the PS2. Great price as this is sometimes a bit hard to find

Fantastic game - snap it up at this price won't be disappointed..........

My fourth favourite game this gen. I really need to get the DLC.

Truly great, very underrated game. This is also quite scarce - when I wanted to buy it back in September last year it was ebay or pay £40 online.

Great spot! :thumbsup:


I really need to get the DLC.

Same here. Expensive though...

If Sega can gamble on making a game like this why cant they just make SoA2?

I got this for xmas... wasn't impressed that in order to get top marks you have to finish the mission as soon as possible.... this means you have to even stay in the open taking fire. This game lacks the strategy is was meant to have... real pity.

Thx ive been looking for this in stock and cheap, is a good site? ive never ordered from them before. Thx

Yep, used them a few times. I think they come under the same umbrella as BangCD? Could be mistaken on that though...

Great game, price remains up due to scarcity. DLC was originally for the Japanese version, we're actually lucky to have gotten it as the game didn't sell well originally here. For those interested, there's an anime series based on the game.

Possibly one of the best games on the PS3. A very refreshing blend of strategy and RPG in the modern environment of shooters. The only bad point is the lack of trophies.

really tempted at this price but i have too many unopened games at the mo

I watched the anime and the characters in the game.. their faces look significantly different. Hence, cold from me

ordered - thanks

good game and good anime

Definitely worth the purchase at this price.

Love turn based strategy games so ordered this... any other TBS hidden gems around?

absolutely superb game, took me ages to get hold of a copy last year
