There's a notable difference in style, and the team misses some of the key directors and producers from the first Valkyria Chronicles (who also worked on Sakura Wars and Skies of Arcadia). So I'm a bit worried that this might turn into something closer to the recent Shining games, rather than the original Valkyria Chronicles. Still, if it turns out to be good RPG in its own right, I'm all for it. It'll be interesting to see if SEGA decides to localize it. It would be nonsensical not to given that it's a PS4 title, but this is SEGA were talking about.
On a side note, thanks for linking to Segalization
