SEGA's Valkyria Chronicles Remastered releases next week, so in anticipation of that release the company has released avatars for the game on the PlayStation Store for fans to download.
In the world of Valkyria Chronicles, the year is 1935 E.C., and the continent of Europa has been plunged into the Second Europan War between the Autocratic East Europan Imperial Alliance -- also known as The Empire -- and the Atlantic Federation over the precious resource Ragnite. The Empire is sweeping through the continent like an unchecked wildfire and has its eyes set on the rich Ragnite deposits of the Principality of Gallia. Although peaceful Gallia remains neutral in the conflict, its citizens will need to defend home and country against the inevitable invasion. Follow Lieutenant Welkin Gunther and the vaunted Squad 7 of the Gallian Militia as they take on the seemingly insurmountable forces of the Empire.
There are 12 avatars available in total, priced at 49 cents a piece. And if you're a big fan of the series and want all of them, you can pick them up for $3.99, a savings of ~30%!
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will feature high-resolution graphics and run at 1080p/60fps. The game also supports both Japanese and English audio, and includes all the DLC content released for the original game and trophy support. Avatars include: Alicia Melchiott, Eleanor Varrot, Faldio Landzaat, Irene Ellet, Isara Gunther, Largo Potter, Maximilian, Brigitte "Rosie" Stark, Selvaria Bles (normal, and Valkyrur), Welkin Gunther, and Zaka.
For those that live in North America, pre-ordering the game or getting one of the first-run copies of the game will get you a collectible Squad 7 Armored Case. As for Europeans players, these can pick up a special edition called "Europa Edition", which comes with a 32-page art book called The Art of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and a double-sided A3 poster depicting Squad 7 on one side and Selvaria Bles on the other.
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will be released on May 17 in North America and Europe.
