Valkyria Chronicles is a turn based tactical JRPG series developed and produced by Sega. The first game in the series released on the PlayStation 3 in 2008. The game is set in a World War II Europe setting where the player is a citizen of Gallia, a small country that is caught in the crossfire of the war between two large empires. You play as a squad of soldiers in the Gallia military who also discover a legendary race with supernatural powers, Valkyrians. The game has inspired two sequels on the PlayStation Portable. It also inspired multiple manga adaptations and even an anime adaptation in 2009. The series itself was produced by A-1 Pictures (Aldnoah.Zero, Sword Art Online) and directed by Yasutaka Yamamoto (Shinryaku!? Ika Musume, Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?).
