Famitsu Unveils Valkyria Chronicles 2
Pat yourselves on the back, because this was a true group effort: the critics insisted upon the game's unique quality, and while it took some time for the gamers to respond, they have finally proven that Sega should deliver a sequel. ...you may be disappointed when you learn of its targeted platform, though.
Multiple sources have stumbled upon the latest Famitsu issue, and without a doubt, it clearly depicts Valkyria Chronicles 2. For visual evidence, take a gander at this magazine scan; if you can read Japanese, you'll be better off. But before all you fans of the original go jumping around the room for joy, we should probably tell you that this sequel is set to arrive for the PSP. Yeah, that's right. We're not sure if this is a mistranslation and the game is coming to both the PS3 or PSP, or if Sega does plan to bring CV back to the PS3 in some other way. Perhaps they're working on another entry for the PS3 but they want to target a new demographic first; after all, the game is scheduled to drop this winter, so it'll be available when the PSP Go is on store shelves. All we know about the plot right now is that it will take place in the year 1937 and the main character will be a soldier who wishes to make his deceased brother's wish come true. This holds no relation to the original VC storyline - as far as we can tell - so this "sequel" might just be a brand new title in the new franchise. PSP owners certainly ought to be psyched, especially if they never got a chance to play the first game.
As soon as we can dig up more information on Valkyria Chronicles 2, we'll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, PS3 owners, keep your collective chins up...this doesn't mean you'll never see VC again. We hope.
