Following the success of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered last year, Sega is bringing the latest entry in the cult tactical action-RPG series to the West.

Valkyria Revolution isn't a sequel to the main Valkyria Chronicles storyline; though Sega is describing the title as a spinoff, with a new timeline and setting, though the series mythology, of ragnite ore and all-powerful Valkyria, remains in the new title. Bits of the story, as well as the new, faster-paced battle system, are on full display in a new trailer:

The new Valkyria title is getting physical and digital releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the Vita version is only receiving a digital release.

Valkyria Revolution comes out on June 27. For more on the game, check out an earlier trailer.
