The sequel to the endearing PS3 game, Valkyria Chronicles 2 combines strategy elements of conventional tactical role playing games with real-time action sequences. The story of Valkyria Chronicles 2 takes place two years after the conclusion of the original game. A group of young Gallian Military Academy cadets find themselves plunged into a bitter civil war when the newly formed Gallian Revolutionary Army stages a coup. As the epic drama unfolds in the game, players will experience stories of friendship, love and growing pains during a time of war and revolution.
Valkyria Chronicles' BLiTZ battle system has been re-designed to offer players the freedom to strategically move around the environment and attack enemies using real-time controls, something never before seen in the tactical role-playing game genre. The CANVAS engine has also been redesigned for the graphical capabilities of the PSP system. This incredibly distinctive engine powers over 20 new distinct environments within which players have hundreds of different missions to explore.
