Sega Dates, Prices Valkyria Chronicles DLC For Europe
Updated: The PlayStation blog has confirmed that this content will also arrive on the North American PSN on April 16. We don't see a price just yet, but at least it's confirmed.
We already have the details on the fresh downloadable content coming to North America and Europe for Valkyria Chronicles, but we'll remind you again because we now have date and price.
Well, it only applies to Europe right now, but we have to assume the gamers in this country will receive very similar news. According to Examiner.com, Sega has revealed that three pieces of content will hit the PSN on April 16; each piece will cost £3.19 or €3.99 each, and that means we can probably expect a price tag of $4.99 here in the U.S. To refresh your memory, we'll get the Hard EX mode (an ultimate challenge that features the entire Imperial Army), Edy's Mission, "Enter the Edy Detachment" (play as Edy in a brand new quest), and Selvaria's Mission, "Behind Her Blue Flame" (play as Imperial engineer Johann and see the battle through the enemy's eyes). Some may say we should get all three pieces for $4.99, but those who are familiar with Sega's stellar strategy/RPG understands just how much is here. Chronicles is one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives available and sadly, one of the most under-appreciated. It got fantastic reviews - we liked it a lot, too - but it really didn't get enough attention; perhaps this new DLC will help.
We'd like to think the content arrives for North America at about the same time, and we'll let you know whenever Sega of America decides to announce the specifics.
