In a new update on the US and EU PlayStation blogs, the new PR Manager for Atlus/SEGA of America Will Chan has posted an update on Valkyria Revolution, a spinoff title from the Valkyria Chronicles series. The blog posts also reveals that pre-orders and limited launch copies of the physical PS4 and Xbox One game will consist of a limited “Vanargand Edition”, which contains several of extras. Unfortunately, it appears only the Americas are getting this version.
During the “Let Us Start the Game” live stream, Atlus U.S.A. announced that the game will be delayed until April 4, 2017 for the Americas and Europe. On the plus side, they also announced that the game will be getting free dual audio. It’s a much requested feature from the fans given the strong Japanese voice cast, so it’s good to see that they managed to include it in the game. On their PlayStation blog update, Atlus PR manager explains that adding the Japanese audio was took a “herculean effort from just about every division of Atlus”.
SEGA and Sony have announced that a special PlayStation 4 bundle, called the “PlayStation 4 Yakuza 6 Starter Limited Pack”, will be released in Japan. The bundle includes a 500GB PS4, a copy of Yakuza 6 and a Yakuza 6 PlayStation 4 theme. It will be released on December 8 for the price of 35,980 yen (around $344).
Another bundle, called the “PlayStation 4 Yakuza 6 Edition”, includes a PlayStation 4, a Yakuza 6-themed top cover, a Yakuza 6 original design package and a copy of Yakuza 6. Two versions of this bundle will be released, one with a 500GB and one with a 1TB PS4, costing respectively 33,480 yen (around $320) and 38,480 yen (around $368). This bundle will also be released on December 8, the same day as Yakuza 6‘s release in Japan. At this point no announcement has been made regarding a localization of Yakuza 6 for the West, but we do have Yakuza 0 to look forward to, which is scheduled for a January 24, 2017 release in the Americas and Europe.
Atlus has unveiled the cover for the Steelbook Launch Edition of Persona 5 in North America and (we assume also) Europe. The design features the entire group of Phantom Thieves (in their daily attire) on the outside of the case. On the inside it will have a clear disc holder that reveals a second design, showing the characters in their Phantom Thief outfit. You can view the image below!
