Idea Factory International has announced Western release dates for Compile Heart’s new RPG Dark Rose Valkyrie. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4 on June 6th in North America and June 9th in the EU. Check out the teaser trailer for the game below.
This role playing game takes place in an alternate reality in which a dangerous virus is turning people into monstrous Chimera. A Valkyrie force has been established to deal with the threat composed of young brave (primarily female) soldiers. The force wields special weapons designed to eradicate these enemies. You can learn more about the game’s story, weapons, characters and combat in our previous coverage of the title.
New Dark Rose Valkyrie information has also recently been added to the official website. Two new male characters have been introduced, Naoyuki Kazami and Kengo Shinohara. Naoyuki is a charming and reliable corporal in the force. As the newest member to the team lance corporal Kengo is the lowest ranking officer who takes pride in laundry duty.
Also elaborated upon is the interview system. The system is crucial to the game because even these elite Valkyrie soldiers are susceptible to the Chimera virus and having their minds weakened by the conditioning they must go through to fight the enemy, leading members of the team to betray you. Players can find the traitor in their midst by regularly interviewing them and finding the contradictions in their testimonies. Players can also have a trusted officer interview team members so that more can be monitored at a time, her success rate and amount of officers she can interrogate can be increased if you invest in her skills after going on successful missions.
After being delayed Dark Rose Valkyrie (formerly Black Rose Valkyrie) finally has a release date in both Japan and the West. The game will be releasing in Japan on May 31st, in North America June 6th and in the EU June 9th as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. It has been rated Teen by the ESRB.
