Valkyria Chronicles, SEGA, Playstation 3
Valkyria Chronicles stands apart from other role-playing games with its innovative BLiTZ battle system that combines the gameplay elements of traditional role-playing games and third-person action shooters, along with the ground breaking CANVAS engine that creates beautiful watercolor graphics. In this epic adventure set in 1930s fictitious Europe, players assume the role of Welkin, a heroic commander who leads his small platoon against two neighboring enemy nations on the brink of war. As Welkin's small country is engulfed in battle, the "Valkyria," an ancient race with destructive powers, emerges in the invading faction. Faced with this new threat, Welkin and his troops gather their courage to fight as never before for their freedom and a better future. Valkyria Chronicles has over 40 hours of gameplay, over 50 upgradable playable characters to choose from and over 30 beautifully rendered battlefields for players to battle through and explore.
