It has been a little while since I last done an unboxing post, so here’s one for Valkyria Chronicles 4: Memoirs from Battle Premium Edition. As has been the case in the past, this post will be a series of photos taken on my phone of each item included with the Premium Edition – well, the physical items, at least.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the Valkyria Chronicles 4: Memoirs from Battle Premium Edition.I’ll start with the box – or more specifically, the box with the sleeve on that shows what is included. Remove the sleeve, and you end up with a box looking like this:It’s a nice box, but we’re more interested in what is inside said box. I’ll start with the game itself, because that is the first item you’ll come across upon lifting up the box’s lid.I’ll also give you a look at the cartridge, and the Ragnarok sticker included inside.The Switch cartridge isn’t really anything to write home about, but the Ragnarok sticker is all right. Unfortunately, I happen to be more of a cat person. I don’t imagine a cat being particularly helpful on a battlefield, though. They’d most certainly just sit there licking themselves whilst you bleed to death or something.
Next, we have the 5.5″ “Hafen” tank vinyl statue.It’s a nice little thing. The box shows the flag having a simple emblem or something on it, but as you can see in the photos above it just ended up being plain white. Nothing worth complaining about, even though I did just point it out.
That brings me on to the final item.It is the 100 page Claude Travel Journal Art Book. As you would expect, it features all sorts of art from Valkyria Chronicles 4. As has been the case in previous unboxing posts, I’ll give a glimpse at only a couple of pages from within.That covers everything in the Valkyria Chronicles 4: Memoirs of Battle Premium Edition. Oh, I should also mention that there is a code to download two extra missions featuring Squad 7 from the first Valkyria Chronicles – I’ll redeem that for myself fairly soon.
My favourite item from this particular Premium Edition has to be the Hafen tank vinyl statue.
A free demo of Valkyria Chronicles 4 is available on the Nintendo eShop (and maybe the other platforms it is available on as well, I don’t really know). It’s a very generous demo, taking you well into chapter 2 of the story and providing unique missions to tackle. The best part is that your save data can be carried over to the main game, so if you don’t know whether you’d enjoy Valkyria Chronicles 4 or not, you can give it a go for free.
It may be the fourth entry in the series, but Valkyria Chronicles 4 has its own story to tell, so you can just jump right in with very little knowledge of previous games.
I absolutely loved my time with the demo, and am very eager to continue with the full game. I am also very much looking forward to experiencing the first Valkyria Chronicles when it is released for Nintendo Switch when it is released in October.
