SEGA has pushed out a free demo for Valkyria Chronicles 4 on the Switch eShop today.
The demo allows players to play through the prologue, first two chapters of the game, and a demo-exclusive mission. Players will be able to transfer their save data over to the full game when it launches on September 25, as well as an exclusive accessory.
Lastly, for those of you pre-ordering the game digitally, you’ll receive an add-on mission called ‘A Captainless Squad’. It’ll be available as a separate purchase for USD4.99 from late October 2018.
Full details on the demo and digital bonus can be found below.
In the Valkyria Chronicles 4 Demo, available now as a free download on the PlayStation™Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo Switch™ eShop, you’ll join Commander Claude Wallace and his comrades in Squad E as they begin the first steps of Operation Northern Cross. Experience the series’ signature watercolor aesthetic as presented by the CANVAS Engine and get a feel for the innovative tactical BLiTZ system before the full game launches on September 25. Play through the prologue and first two chapters of the game, as well as an exclusive bonus mission created for the demo. Demo save data, including items obtained, class levels, earned experience, and currency total will transfer over to the full game, so you can pick up right where you left off. Additionally, importing save data from the demo will net you an exclusive accessory for use in the full game.
In this side mission, a group of Squad E soldiers find themselves on an impromptu reconnaissance operation after the squad’s beloved medic dog, Ragnarok, goes missing.
