The ESRB has now rated the English/Western version of Valkyria Chronicles 4 on its official website earlier this week. The rating gives us a rough idea on the type of content that you can see from the full game.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 has been rated T for teenagers. The content descriptors are the following: Blood, Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, Violence. The Western release of the game is September 2018 and the game should be available for you to buy on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The rating summary posted the following description: “This is a strategy role-playing game in which players control a squad of soldiers in a fictional World War II-inspired conflict. Battles are mostly depicted from a third-person perspective as characters perform various actions such as claiming strategic positions, moving tanks, and firing weapons (e.g., machine guns, sniper rifles, flamethrowers). Cutscenes sometimes depict characters getting shot and killed; these sequences are highlighted by cries of pain and realistic gunfire. Some scenes depict soldiers with bloodied bandages/wounds, as well as brief splashes of blood when injured.
The game contains some suggestive material: a man grabbing a woman’s buttocks; a character staring at a female, saying, “Check out the a*s on that one! I’d swab her deck”; dialogue such as “Who else would try to sneak into a strip club at ten years old?” During the course of the game, characters often discuss alcohol, and one character is shown drunk (e.g., “And I’m sssuper sober, so don’t worry it’s fiiine… hic!”); another character is seen holding a cigarette and asking for a light. The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.”
The game was released originally in Japan by Sega back in March 2018 to favorable reviews from both the critics and gamers alike. Hopefully the game is as good as the previous titles in the series.
