In 2008, when the original Valkyria Chronicles came out for the PlayStation 3, people could not believe the step that SEGA had taken with the way it was all presented; with the CANVAS engine, soft palettes and subtle tones came to life where everything seemed sketched with pencil - it was a moment where anime and gaming really meshed into a project of impressive scale.
Not to be outdone with just graphics, Valkyria Chronicles had both the story and the gameplay to take this story book experience to another level, and with the recent announcement of the remastered version, seeing these elements enhanced and back at play is something that all gamers can look forward to.
Set in an alternate Europe around the 1930s, the region has been split into two factions, the East European Empire Union and the Atlantic Ocean Federal Organization, and for years and years, these two superpowers have been seeking to unify Europe through a large scale war. It is often in times of chaos where Heroes emerge, and in a small, neutral country, such a young man comes forward to join the fight.
For those new to the series, gameplay is just as deep as it is accessible; players will move their squad to tactical locations with line of sight indicators to reach the best positions on the battlefield, with factors such as class of soldier, terrain, height, and distance taken into consideration. There are so many varied missions and objectives, that each approach will be different, especially when incorporating the fact that tank warfare is also an important aspect of battle.
In between battles, Valkyria Chronicles presents the story literally page by page; cutscenes presented in full animation with voice acting over a storybook background that detail an epic about love, hardship, camaraderie and bravery, all in the face of war and it's horrors.
If based on the original, Valkyria Chonricles Remastered will be immensely satisfying to play, and new additions welcome veterans to once again follow Squad 7 into the foray with enhanced visuals (as if it could look any better...) There are 3 new episodes and a new Hard-EX mode for master tacticians!
As well, all First-Print copies will include a battle demo on disc for SEGA's newest Valkyria title: Valkyria: Azure Revolution!

Onimusha: Warlords was first released on PlayStation®2 in 2001. Its exhilarating sword-fighting action and intense battles against demons captivated players worldwide. That same masterpiece is making a comeback on current-gen consoles.
Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro, who played the voice of main character Samanosuke in the original game, also joined the project as a guest creator. The Japanese voices have been newly recorded, and the brand new soundtrack promises to be even more spectacular than the original.
In an attempt to unify Japan, Yoshimoto Imagawa's army departed Suruga for the capital. But during their encampment at Dengaku Gorge in Owari Prefecture, Imagawa's destiny changed forever. With only 2,000 soldiers, Nobunaga Oda raided the Imagawa camp. This encounter is known worldwide as the Battle of Okehazama.
From atop a nearby hill, a young man named Samanosuke Mitsuhide Akechi watched this scene unfold. Samanosuke, who refused the beckoning of renowned warlords and traveled as he liked, was the nephew of Mitsuhide Akechi, who would one day be the leader of the rebellion at Honnoji.
It was only a year later that soldiers and servants began mysteriously disappearing at Inabayama Castle, the residence of Yoshitatsu Saito. Yoshitatsu's younger sister, Princess Yuki, sent Samanosuke a letter detailing these troubling incidents. Upon receiving her letter, Samanosuke rushed to Inabayama Castle.
However, Samanosuke was not prepared for his enemy. After a rough encounter with the demons, the ogre clan granted Samanosuke a powerful and mysterious gauntlet that enabled him to grow stronger with every demon he killed...
