Well, that’s just a surprise!
Sega has confirmed that the original Valkyria Chronicles, the beloved cult classic strategy RPG that spawned a whole series, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. The game originally previously launched for the PS3, later getting releases on the PS4 and PC as well- this marks the first time it will be available on a non-PlayStation console.
It will be launching in roughly the same time frame in Japan as Valkyria Chronicles 4 (which launched on the PS4 last month, and underperformed; the Switch version is planned for later this year). Buying both on the eShop will get you a discount.
For now, the Switch version of the first game has not been announced for the west, although presumably it is only a matter of time. Valkyria Chronicles 4, on the other hand, is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year in the west.
