Sega Will Not Bring Valkyria Chronicles III To US, Europe
Well, at least we got it. According to a recent confirmation, the third installment in the critically acclaimed strategy series won't be coming to North America or Europe, and that's unfortunate.
During an interview in Singapore, Sega team manger of console sales, Hiroshi Seno, revealed that Valkyria Chronicles III: Unrecorded Chronicles wouldn't be localized simply because the PSP isn't as popular in the US and Europe. He also said they only planned to do it if past installments sold a particular number, and that didn't happen. In fact, Valkyria Chronicles II didn't even sell well enough to justify the localization costs.
There's the possibility that a VC title could come to the PlayStation Vita, but we're not sure at this point. Does anyone else think that Sega made a colossal mistake making VCII only for the PSP? Didn't the first title sell pretty darn well in North America? And if they know the PSP isn't as popular in other regions outside Japan, what'd they do it for in the first place?
