In a joint announcement from SEGA of Japan and SEGA of America, Valkyria Chronicles 4 has been announced for release on the PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One worldwide in 2018! In Japan, an Xbox One version wasn’t announced, and the release date was set more specifically for PlayStation 4 on March 21, 2018 and for the Nintendo Switch in summer 2018 (thanks to Gematsu for this info). The accompanying trailer gives us a great first impression of the game, as it really feels like the genuine sequel that fans had been hoping to see ever since we played the original Valkyria Chronicles on PS3.
It’s been a long wait, but today Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse and 7th Dragon III Code: VFD have finally been released in Europe, both in digital and physical format. The games are published by Deep Silver, who earlier this year entered a publishing deal with Sega of America and Atlus. The deal also marked the end of the uncertainty surrounding future releases in Europe of games developed by SEGA and Atlus in Japan.
Deep Silver and Sega of America have announced that the DLC for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, which was already released in the Americas, will also be heading to Europe. In total there are seven additional DLC quests which grant you XP, money boosts, unlockable characters or a post-game boss challenge. You can find a detailed list of all of the DLC along with its release date below, taken from Deep Silver’s press release. Note that the DLC requires progression through the game before it will be available to play. A demo of the game for Europe has also been released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, and it’s worth noting that transferring the save data from the demo to the full game will grant you several bonuses.

In the demo you’ll receive a pre-made group of characters with a level cap set to 10. You’ll also be able to transfer the save game from the demo over to the full game.

Canadian video game retailer Video Games Plus seems to be on a roll when it comes to restocking SEGA and Atlus games. After restocking SEGA’s Infinite Space and various Nintendo DS and PSP Atlus games, they’ve now added SEGA’s Phantasy Star 0 to their lineup, for the price of $39.99CDN (around $31USD).
Originally released back in 2009 for the Nintendo DS, the game was developed by Sonic Team and featured three online modes and an offline Story Mode. The gameplay mechanics were based on those of Phantasy Star Online and Phantasy Star Universe, and the character design was done by Toshiyuki Kubooka (known for his work on the Lunar series). As you may expect, the online modes are no longer functional in this release. However, the game is listed as region free, and Video Games Plus does ship internationally. We included the original launch trailer and a few screenshots of the game below.
