Idea Factory International has revealed that Dark Rose Valkyrie, originally released in Japan under the name Black Rose Valkyrie, will be released in North America on June 6 and in Europe on June 9 for the PlayStation 4 in both digital and physical formats. Dark Rose Valkyrie features the talents of Tales of series scenario writer Takumi Miyajima and Tales of series character designer Kosuke Fujishima. Those two worked together on perhaps one of the greatest Tales of games to exist to date, Tales of Symphonia on the Nintendo Gamecube.
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!
