Sega has released the debut trailer for Valkyria: Azure Revolution, the newly revealed sequel to the PS3 cult classic Valkyria Chronicles. The trailer, which you can watch below, provides another look at the game's vivid visual aesthetic, which has been a hallmark of the series .

As of yet, Sega has not released more details on the game. What we know so far, however, is that the game is set in a world where the Rus Empire has rapidly expanded thanks to an industrial revolution. This was instigated by the discovery of a mineral called Ragnite.

The Empire's growth has brought it into conflict with Jutland, which has been blockaded. The small country must now fight for "independence and freedom." The main protagonist is a commanding officer in the Judland Kingom's Anti-Valkyria Unit.

Valkyria: Azure Revolution is being developed by Media Vision, which also worked on Valkyria Chronicles 3 for PSP. It is scheduled to launch in Japan in 2016. A demo will be included with Valkyria Chronicles Remaster, which will be available for PS4 on February 10 in Japan. The remaster will feature improved visuals, include DLC, and Trophy support.
