    If Revolution is going to be a prequel then they are going the MGS route and having more impressive technology in the past compared to their future, especially when you look at these screen shots side by side.

    If not Sega then NIS America are perfect for the job :^)

    that Azure Revolution looks very pretty. I already have Valkyria Chronicles on PS3, but if it means VC3 will hit US some time, I’d be interested in getting the PS4 port

    Frankly, the Azure looks pretty as a game, but looks weird as a Valkyria game. I mean, the military thematic seams weak, at least in the main characters. Not good.

    Hopefully the sales of the original on PC encourage them to port Azure Revolution to PC as well. Also hope the additional content they’re making for the remaster gets added to the current Steam release.

    Right. We will see. It smells of prequel.

    It… doesn’t look like a Valkyria Chronicles game. I suppose I can still get behind it though. Considering it’s not called Valkyria Chronicles.

    The new character design style is rather… edgy.

    Definitely doesn’t seem as accessable as the first game.

    So it looks like azure is going to go even further away from the military aspect than the past VC games.
    Giant mechanical spider with magical core, two main characters that ain’t even soldiers and they kinda look too edgy there. Not sure how to feel about them.
    I hope it doesn’t drop the ball because it’d be a shame to see the franchise come back from the grave, sega listening to fans and doing a nice game for once, just for it to betray fan expectations and die again.

    I guess that depends on who the main characters ARE as characters. The bad guys look pretty militaristic to me.

    For me the “not good” is that it’s not a strategy game anymore, but a real time rpg(like Tales or something). But who knows maybe it’ll be great.

    As a said, it could be a good game, but not a good Valkyria game. And we already know those up there will probably be the main faces of the game.

    Ozawa: “It’s completely different (from Valkyria Chronicles). This time, the key item known as Ragnite is not just used as an energy resource, but also has magical aspects. Valkyria are supernatural compared to humans, beings considered close to gods.”

    Shimosato: “I want them to become known as the Senjou series and Kakumei series.” (Note: This means the “Battlefield” series and “Revolution” series. In Japan, Valkyria Chronicles is called “Senjou no Valkyria,” or “Valkyria of the Battlefield,” while this new title is called “Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria,” or “Valkyria of the Azure Revolution.”)

    thats from the interview about it

    Well, yeah it’s not even the same kind of game. And yes they are most likely the MCs, what I meant was that they may not be in an army. Maybe they’re a rag tag group of mercenaries or something, you know?

    The guy is an officer, the lady in white is a princess, Selvaria-like character probably is an officer too.
    But, the thing is, it looks more like a generic japanese fantasy game. I mean, a princess in a battlefield using that type of dress? But, here, this page have the best way to show it, just look at the pictures from both versions.
    So, they are not exactly mercenaries, they are a revolutionary group, and the army of a country. And also swords… Why? I mean, really, why?
    Again, it just don’t look like a VC game. It could be great! But, not a VC really.

    He’s talking about a gameplay perspective. That doesn’t dismiss anything I said. It’s still possible.

    Looks great. A bit more stylized, but I don’t really mind.

    I want to see more of Azure revolution these screen shots don’t do enough for me.

    I wonder when Sega will realize that people want Selvaria, and in this case notSelvaria, as the main heroine, not the one on the chopping block.

    I’ll wait to see more of how the game plays to pass judgement. If it’s still the same strategic gameplay, then it’s a VC game in my eyes.

    Seeing how the original’s Steam release is pretty much what revived the series in the first place, I have no doubt we’ll hear about Azure Revolution for PC by the time they get around to announcing a localization.

    More like the Steam release got Sega to slap the Valkyria name on the next Shining, Star Fox Adventures style.

    People hoping for an SRPG, or even a similar game thematically, are going to be sorely disappointed here.

    From the Famitsu interview:

    “Battles are conducted by setting commands to buttons. They’re action-ish battles. It takes on the familiar form of recent RPGs. The maximum amount of party members is five. You control one of them, and the rest move based on a set thought process.”
