Are you familiar with critically lauded Japanese tactical RPG Valkyria Chronicles? The game is an innovative combination of the Japanese role-playing genre, alternative history, turn-based strategy and shooter. Is that original enough for you? The only problem with the game is it's too short! Now even that issue is being taken care of: A bunch of new DLC will be available in April 16th's PlayStation Store update.
Here are the official details on the upcoming Valkyria Chronicles DLC:
- Hard EX Mode – Strictly for the hardcore, in this new mode, you fight your way through the entire Imperial army, where the enemies are more lethal and your main tank Edelweiss is unavailable. You’ll have to be more strategic in order to overcome your opponents.
- Edy’s Mission “Enter the Edy Detachment” – In this mission, six members have been separated from Squad 7 and on their journey to reunite with their squad, they stumble upon a tiny village under attack by the Imperial Army. Play as Edy and command your outnumbered team to defend the small village from annihilation.
- Selvaria’s Mission “Behind Her Blue Flame”– Taking place right after the outbreak of Gallian battle lines, you play as Johann, a young and meek engineer assigned to Selvaria’s troop. See the action as it unfolds behind enemy lines and see the war play out through the eyes of the enemy. Selvaria and Crew 2
