Valkyria Chronicles is a tactical RPG originally released for PlayStation 3 in 2008, winning numerous awards including RPGamer's Game of the Year. Players take control of a squad of the Gallian militia as it tries to fend off an invasion from the East Europan Imperial Alliance using the innovative BLiTZ battle system that combines turn-based strategy with a third-person shooter viewpoint for movement and actions. Valkyria Chronicles spawned two follow-ups on PlayStation Portable, with the series set for a reboot with the forthcoming Valkyria: Azure Revolution.
