Ever since the announcement of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, fans all around the Internet have been praising how perfectly the game delivers its characters, story, and graphics. We’ve heard countless times how much the resolution boost will help it become the playable anime that it always promised to be and how it will be wonderful to relive this magical tale of war and hope.
