News: The first Valkyria Chronicles is coming to Switch


Sega has announced a delay for the Nintendo Switch version of Valkyria Chronicles 4, with the game now due to hit Japan this fall. To make up for this setback, the software giant has confirmed it’s also pumping out the original Valkyria Chronicles for the hybrid platform this year.

The tactical role-playing game was originally released back in 2008 for the PlayStation 3, and while it didn’t exactly set tills alight in the same way as, say, Uncharted, it proved big enough to warrant numerous follow-ups and earned a cult following in the process.

Valkyria Chronicles was later ported to the PlayStation 4 back in 2016, although Valkyria Revolution, a spin-off title released last year for PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One, represented something of a misfire for the series. 

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is scheduled for release in the west this year on PS4 and Xbox One, and was previously released in Japan last month. Right now there’s no word if the original game will be coming to the US and UK for Switch, but we’ll keep you posted.
