The world of Valkyria Revolution is inspired by the European industrial revolution era and focuses on a war of liberation between two vastly different nations. With this in mind, legendary composer Yasunori Mitsuda has created a score that reflects the classic feel of that era for the game. What better way to do this than to have the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra conduct a live concert-hall recording for the soundtrack? Plus, previous Mitsuda collaborator Sarah Àlainn, a multilingual Australian-Japanese singer with a voice spanning over 3 octaves, lends her hauntingly beautiful voice to a couple tracks.
digital pre-orders for the game are now live for PS4 and Xbox One! Joining the elite Vanargand unit is a huge honor and those who pick the digital pre-order route will be gifted with a few extra items to help in the good fight. For the Americas, prospective recruits will receive The Formation of Vanargand and The Ring of Contract DLC Scenarios, 30 ragnite shards, a collection of special ragnite to use in combat (Time Flux+, Heal Field+, Fall Earth+, and Shine Calibur+). If you reside in the European theatre, you’ll receive the 30 ragnite shards and the Time Flux+, Heal Field+, and Fall Earth+ ragnites. The game launches June 27, 2017 in the Americas.
PS4 owners who digitally pre-order Valkyria Revolution will also get an exclusive “The Princess and the Valkyria” theme to display proudly.
