Description official description

Valkyria Chronicles is a tactical role-playing game set in Europa, a fictional version of Europe, in the year 1935. At that time, the Imperial Alliance invades the Atlantic Federation of the west. Their war will soon encompass all of Europa, including the peaceful nation of Gallia. While small in size, Gallia is known for their rich deposits of ragnite ore, a powerful source of fuel and medicine. When the Galian town of Bruhl is invaded by Imperial Forces, Welkin Gunther, his sister Isara, and friend Alicia Melchiott, take up the fight against their foreign conquerors, joining the Gallian Militia, in this WWII-style game.

The player commands his forces through an overhead map, selecting units, and controlling them in a real-time 3rd person view. Taking on the enemy is done with a variety of units classes, including the Shocktrooper (basic soldier), Scout (excellent movement & sight), Lancer (anti-tank), Engineer (repair, resupply, mine defusal, and more), and the deadly Sniper.

This PS3-exclusive title features an art style best described as anime in watercolor.

1001 Video Games

Valkyria Chronicles appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


Shuntaro Tanaka, the game's director, previously worked on SEGA's Skies of Arcadia, which might help explain why Vyse and Aika (the stars of that game) make a cameo on Valkyria Chronicles as two recruitable soldiers for the Gallian Militia. They are classed as a shocktrooper and scout respectively, and their bio briefly states that they hail from a strange country "far from Europa" but otherwise make no mention of their past with the Blue Rogues.
