New Valkyria Chronicles game is browser-based

Free-to-play with micro-transactions.

Sega's Valkyria Chronicles series is set to return in Duel, a new browser-based card battler.

The game will be free to play, although extra cards cost to buy. Over 200 characters will be featured, allowing players to build a deck-based battalion.

You'll need to expand your territory, develop your base camp and also take part in "3D character battles", which appear similar in style to those featured in previous Valkyria Chronicles titles, Andriasang reported.

The official Valkyria Chronicles Duel site mentions beta testing for the game, open now until 25th June. There's also reference to a smartphone app, although its unclear whether this is a full version of the game or a simple companion tool.

The tactical role-playing series was last seen on the PSP in the form of Valkyria Chronicles 3. That launched in January 2011, although only in Japan.
