Valkyria Chronicles Japanese promo video shows extended hotness

Alright, long video is long, but it does show quite a bit of sexy new footage from Sega’s Valkyria Chronicles. I had a chance to play this in Tokyo when it was called Valkyria of the Battlefield: Gallian Chronicles. It looks even better in this video then it did back then, although it seems a bit less scribble-y for some reason.

Scribbles or not, the crazy combination of strategy RPG and real-time action has me hot for this PS3 title. Although in Japanese, it gives us a chance to see gameplay in action. The video shows more details on the Battle of Live Tactical Zone system, or BLiTZ system, which lets you move about and fight to break up the command issuing sections. The story and several other gameplay systems are covered, but I’m really just in it for the pretty pictures.

Any of you that find your buttons pressed with the idea of moving watercolored anime art blended with strategy and action gameplay elements should definitely check this out. Let’s hope we hear a release date for Valkyria Chronicles soon.
