Valkyria: Azure Revolution director Takeshi Ozawa has revealed in an interview with Famitsu that the battle system of the game has changed greatly as result of fan feedback from the demo. The demo was available exclusively to those that purchased the Japanese version of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered.
Ozawa admits that there were many harsh opinions from fans, with many asking for more RPG elements and less focus on action gameplay. SEGA has listened to players, with Ozawa assuring that the game is more "RPG-like" now. Some of the changes includes the ability to stop time when using weapons and magic, having up to four participants in your party instead of just three, and field encounters being removed. A new demo will be released sometime this Summer.
Valkyria: Azure Revolution releases later this year in Japan. SEGA has yet to confirm if the game will be released in the west.
