The Empire is sweeping through the continent like an unchecked wildfire and has its eyes set on the rich Ragnite deposits of the Principality of Gallia. Although peaceful Gallia remains neutral in the conflict, its citizens will need to defend home and country against the inevitable invasion. Players follow Lieutenant Welkin Gunther and the vaunted Squad 7 of the Gallian Militia as they take on the seemingly insurmountable forces of the Empire.

Some of the features include:

  • The game has been built using the HD “CANVAS” Graphics Engine featuring stunning, painterly graphics return, but this time in 1080p/60fps high definition quality.
  • Part overhead turn-based strategy, part RPG, and part real-time 3rd person shooter, the “BLiTZ” tactical battle system makes battles simultaneously strategic and action-packed.
  • Memorable storyline: Set against the backdrop of a world war, Gunther, Alicia, Largo and the rest of the fierce members of Squad 7 fight for personal reasons in the name of freedom, and the hope against all odds of liberating Gallia from Empire control, all in the face of the terrible realities of war.
  • It also includes all previously released DLC: Hard EX Mode, Edy’s Mission, Selvaria’s Mission and Challenge of the Edy Detachment.
