The Valkyria Chronicles DLC that has already been released in Japan will soon be available in North America as well. Valkyria Chronicles is a highly rated strategy RPG for the PlayStation 3 that was released on November 4, 2008. Three content packs for the game will be available for download through the PlayStation Store on April 16, 2009.
Here are the known details:
- Hard EX Mode – Fight your way once again through the entire Imperial army, where the enemies are more lethal and your main tank Edelweiss is unavailable. You’ll have to be more strategic in order to overcome your opponents.
- Edy’s Mission “Enter the Edy Detachment” – Six members have been separated from Squad 7 and on their journey to reunite with their squad, they stumble upon a tiny village under attack by the Imperial Army. Play as Edy and command your outnumbered team to defend the small village from annihilation.
- Selvaria’s Mission “Behind Her Blue Flame” – Taking place right after the outbreak of Gallian battle lines, you play as Johann, a young and meek engineer assigned to Selvaria’s troop. See the action as it unfolds behind enemy lines and see the war play out through the eyes of the enemy.
Each pack will cost $4.99. On a side note, Valkyria Chronicles is currently part of Gamestop's game days sale and priced at $29.99 until the end of the promotion.
