This may be the first action-oriented strategy/RPG title for the PlayStation 3, and we have high hopes. We've seen a bit of the gameplay footage already, and here's more with a new trailer that shows off Valkyria Chronicle's depth and unique style. There's Japanese artistry at the core of the visuals (obviously), but there's a distinct Western flair in how it approaches the strategy-based foundation. We get Namco's Eternal Sonata today, so you have a few weeks to take care of that one before rushing down to the store to pick up Chronicles. We know RPG fans and PS3 owners have been chomping at the bit for the role-playing titles, and we're finally getting a few...and in a very short span of time, too. Yay!
