SEGA has announced that the latest title in their Valkyria Chronicles series, Valkyria Chronicles 4, will be available to pre-order on the Nintendo eShop later today! As a special bonus, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive the special add-on mission ‘A Captainless Squad’ as a free download. The mission can be accessed after reaching Chapter 10 in the main story and will be sold separately as a standalone add-on item for $4.99 after the game releases this September.
For those unsure on if they will be picking up the title, a demo for the game will also release later today. SEGA has provided the following information regarding the contents of the demo.
“… you’ll join Commander Claude Wallace and his comrades in Squad E as they begin the first steps of Operation Northern Cross. Experience the series’ signature watercolor aesthetic as presented by the CANVAS Engine and get a feel for the innovative tactical BLiTZ system before the full game launches on September 25. Play through the prologue and first two chapters of the game, as well as an exclusive bonus mission created for the demo. Demo save data, including items obtained, class levels, earned experience, and currency total will transfer over to the full game, so you can pick up right where you left off. Additionally, importing save data from the demo will net you an exclusive accessory for use in the full game.”
