[Anticipation] Upcoming Releases [ITT] (4)

So Valkyria Chronicles is coming out in about a week. I played the demo the other night and it's looking phenomenal. Some of the highlights are:

  • Incredibly deep unit customization
  • Seamless integration of strategy and third-person shooter elements.
  • Intriguing setting melding modernism with sci-fi overtones and traditional RPG retro fixations.

That being said, I also perceive some unctuous cribbing from FFT, including the art style overhaul present in the PSP version. Much like FFT, and several other influential SRPGs the story is a historical recollection as told from a book. Those of you lucky enough to have played through the PSP will also notice that the art in Valkyria Profile uses hashes for shading during several cutscenes. Whether this is a nod to the most successful game of the genre or an attempt to appeal to the tastes of fans it's still feels interesting and fresh.

All in all, I would say I'm anticipating this game more than any other upcoming release.

Valkyria Chronicles seems pretty neat. Unfortunately I don't own a PS3.

I'm waiting eagerly for Ar Tonelico 2 and Persona 4 in December. But there's a rumor that AT2's been delayed?

I'm gonna get Valkyria as well too I think, I just played the demo today. PS3 needs a good strategy game, hopefully it will get the eventual Rot3K XII as well.

Might not get it right away though, just got LittleBigPlanet and I also want to check out the new Tecmo Bowl for DS.
