Players befriend Yo-kai by giving them a food that they like before, beginning, and/or during battle, and after defeating the Yo-kai it approaches the player character and gives them its Yo-kai Medal, allowing it to be summoned at will. There are also Legend Yo-kai that can only be obtained by collecting a particular set of Yo-kai listed in the Yo-kai Medallium, a compendium of the different Yo-kai the player has encountered or befriended, as well as Boss Yo-kai that cannot be befriended in the original game, but can become the player's friends in Ganso and Honke. When the player encounters a Yo-kai, they enter into battle with it using six Yo-kai that the player has befriended previously. The player can also encounter similarly powerful Namahage Yo-kai if the player crosses the street on a red light, but the encounter may be beneficial if the player follows the rules.

Battles run on a chain meter to determine the amount of rewards a player can select from chests after completing a battle zone. The meter loses points for taking actions from both the party and enemies, but players can raise the meter with crystals that drop in battle by defeating enemies or by using a summon's special attack. Depending on the crystal value, players are able to open more treasure boxes at the end and a secret reward is unlocked when the player reaches over 4 crystals in a battle. By completing quests, players may obtain weapons, rings, phantom stones, and tails to upgrade their phantom stones.

Two sequels were released for PlayStation Portable, Sony's handheld gaming console: Valkyria Chronicles II in 2010, and Valkyria Chronicles III in 2011. Valkyria Chronicles is a tactical role-playing game in which the player uses a unique turn-based battle system called BLiTZ (Battle of Live Tactical Zones). During their turn the player views an overhead map in Command Mode, but zooms in to control each individual unit on the battlefield in Action Mode. Taking command of individual units during the player's phase costs Command Points, which can be used dynamically to grant movement to many different units or the same unit consecutively with diminishing AP reserve, depending on what the player wants to accomplish.
