Valkyria Chronicles 4

SEGA shared a new behind the scenes video for Valkyria Chronicles 4 today. Below, listen to composer Hitoshi Sakimoto discussing the type of music used in the game.


Following the successful launch and sales numbers of Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Switch, SEGA has continued to promote the game through developer insight and videos.

Today, SEGA Europe has shared a clip of the title’s chief artist Hitoshi Fukazawa discussing the inspiration for Valkyria Chronicles 4’s art style. Check out the video below.

Initial data from this week’s UK software sales are in, providing interesting information about the debut of Valkyria Chronicles 4. It ended up at the ninth position in its first week on the all formats chart. Valkyria Chronicles 4 sold the most on PlayStation 4 at 54%, but Switch wasn’t too far behind at 39% while Xbox One followed last at 7%.

FIFA 19 appeared at the top of the charts in its first week. Unsurprisingly, Switch wasn’t really a factor here as was the case in 2017. The platform breakdown was 64% for the PS4, 35% for Xbox One, and 1% for Switch.

We’ll have more information from the latest UK charts when Chart-Track fully updates tomorrow.


Valkyria Chronicles 4 was originally supposed to have a separate Japanese voice pack on Switch yesterday. That didn’t happen, but SEGA has addressed the issue and the free DLC is now available to download.

Switching between languages is very easy. If you’d like to change the voices to Japanese (or back into English), just visit the options menu.


SEGA released a new trailer for Valkyria Chronicles 4 to highlight the game’s western launch. View the video below.

Release date: September 25, 2018
Developer: SEGA
Publisher: SEGA

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a the long-awaited return to the franchise’s roots. After ten years, some strange PSP sequels and odd unwanted offshoots like Valkyria Revolution, this is the first full-on watercolor outing since 2008. If you played Valkyria Chronicles, then you already have a good idea of what to expect here – and from that standpoint this is exactly what could be expected out of a (good) sequel.

SEGA posted an official unboxing video for the Valkyria Chronicles 4: Memoirs from Battle Premium Edition. Get a look at it below.

Ahead of its Switch release later in the month, Valkyria Chronicles 4 is getting a demo in Japan on September 13. Players can move the progress made in the demo to the full game. Since the Switch isn’t region locked, any Switch owner can download the demo as long as they have a Japanese account.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is slated for September 25. Once the game is out, throughout the rest of the year, DLC will be available for purchase.

Those who pick up Valkyria Chronicles 4 on launch day will be able to download the Japanese Voice Pack. Also, those who nab the “Memoirs from Battle” Premium Edition can gain instant access to “A United Front with Squad 7” and “Edy’s Advance Ops”.

With Valkyria Chronicles 4 out in September and the demo available right now, I thought this might be the perfect opportunity to discuss this unique tactical RPG. Sharing similarities to some of Nintendo’s biggest games, Valkyria Chronicles 4 may just be the game Nintendo fans have been asking for. Is it for everyone? Probably not, but this video might help you figure out if it’s for you. Please enjoy and to join the conversation, tell me about your favorite tactics game of old!
