Action strategy enters a world of watercolour beauty
Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe on the verge of a great war. The game follows Welkin, a heroic commander who leads his small platoon against two neighbouring enemy nations on the brink of conflict. As Welkin's small country of Gallia is engulfed in battle, the emergence of the Valkyria - an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends - turns the tide of the war. Faced with a new threat, Welkin and his troops gather their courage to fight for freedom and the hope for a better future.
Take up arms and embark on an epic adventure through beautiful environments and battle legions of troops to save the small country of Gallia from total destruction.
