LOS ANGELES, CA., April 14, 2017 – Gear up! Dark Rose Valkyrie™ moves out for battle on the PlayStation®4 system on June 6 for North America and June 9 for Europe, launching in both physical and digital formats!
Featuring the talents of Tales of series scenario writer Takumi Miyajima and Tales of series character designer Kosuke Fujishima, this JRPG for the PlayStation®4 system appoints you to lead an elite military force known as ACID (Anti-Chimera Interception Division) to stand between humanity and those transformed by a mysterious virus. Fight using customized weapons, team attacks, the powerful Overdrive mode, and more! But beyond battle, you’ll have to interrogate teammates to find who’s been turned in order to save the world. Will you find the traitor in time?
In the year 1929, a massive outbreak occurred, transforming normal people into inhuman creatures known as Chimera.
The cause: a mysterious virus carried over by a meteorite known as the Black Garnet, which had crashed into earth long ago.
At its inception, the Chimera Virus wiped out 3% of the world’s entire population. To stave off the pandemic, Japan closed its nation to the rest of the world and formed a covert military agency known as ACID (Anti-Chimera Interception Division) to combat the remaining Chimera in the country.
Over time, ACID established within itself a special unit known as Special Force Valkyrie. You must lead this force and eradicate the Chimera that remain to this day!
- Take the fight into Overdrive! Characters can transform into their stronger split personalities mid-battle, but be strategic – too many transformations will lead to Fatigue!
- Customize Combos! Customize weapons and attack combinations for each character, and do more damage with Riot Combos, Simultaneous Attacks, and more!
- A Traitor Amongst You! Depending on your choices, a team member will betray you. Find the traitor in visual-novel style interrogation sequences, and change the game’s ending!
