Today Sega hosted a preview event for Valkyria Chronicles 4 in Tokyo, and there is good news for those who want to try the game early.
A demo will be released on the Japanese PlayStation Store, as mentioned by Twitter user Ryohei, who was in attendance at the event.
It’ll come on Monday, February 26th (which means in just two days). The demo is going to include a mission made specifically for it, plus the first two chapters, and it will allow you to transfer your save data to the final game (or at least the Japanese version).
At the moment we don’t know whether Sega of America will follow up with a demo of its own in due time, but at least we’ll be able to get our hands on the Japanese version soon enough.
Obviously, a Japanese PSN account will be required to download and install the demo. If you don’t have one, you can prepare ahead of time thanks to our handy guide.
Incidentally we also learn that what is playable at today’s event is the actual game, not the demo, which means that it’s either already gone gold, or it’s very close.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy the most recent trailer showcasing some of the characters belonging to the Atlantic Federation, a few assets showcasing the Centurion, more videos revealing Viola and Connor, more art and a clip introducing Viktoria, more screenshots and interesting info on the setting, a trailer showcasing the Imperial cast, another trailer, some videos and art featuring Kai and Raz, more videos revealing Zaiga and Ferie, similar videos and art about Riley, abother reveal about Claude, the latest batch of screenshots focusing on the Snow Cruiser Centurion and her crew, an earlier trailer, some more screenshots from a couple of weeks ago, two recent gameplay videos from Taipei Game Show, the first gameplay footage, a recent trailer showcasing the crossover DLC with the first game, another showing a wide range of gameplay features, the previous batch of screenshots and information, the first trailer, more screenshots, more artwork and info, and the first gallery of images.
