Valkyria Chronicles 3 is The Best Game Of the Series

Kotaku - From the moment I laid eyes on the first Valkyria Chronicles’ trailer, I knew it would be a game I would love–for the art style, if nothing else. As it turned out, the graphics, while as beautiful as I had expected, were only one part of a great game. The plot was excellent, the setting was a perfect example of a historical fiction, and the gameplay seamlessly merged tactical roleplaying with third person shooting in a way never seen before. But as good as the original Valkyria Chronicles was, Valkyria Chronicles 3 outshines it in every way (except in the graphics department, of course). (PS3, PSP, Valkyria Chronicles 3)

Why don't they just make the games on the ps3 instead of the psp it would be so much better.

because nobody bought the first one when it was released so they made it on psp which then again no one bought so we don't even get the 3rd one now.

Such an amazing series and yet so under appreciated

It's called marketing...
... of which Sega nor Sony did barely nothing to promote this new license when it first game out, so yeah, not surprising that many gamers never picked it up.

I did though, and it's a fantastic game. Also, it has the original language. (I'm talking about the first game. Haven't played the 2nd and 3rd game)

According to Vgchartz it's sold 1.07 million. That's quite impressive actually, A lot more than I thought it would have sold.

The first one actually sold rather well considering it was a new IP exclusive to one console. Two and three sold poorly, however.

Would love to see this come on the PS3, but i just might pick up a used PSP to play this.

Are they finally localizing it? I've been rather upset about that, myself. I'd buy another PSP to play both sequels; there are other games, but those two would be my most wanted.

The only thing SEGA ever markets is Sonic. And not even the old good Sonic. Newer crappy ones.
HD port for the ps3 and Id buy it easily.

Does this work on vita?
r21  +   616d ago
I want a valkyria chronicles for ps vita!
Ultraplayerxp  +   616d ago
I want a VC for the vita too. All I can think about is how beautiful the game would look on the system.

Sega localize this and take my cold hard earned cash! D:

Is this being localized??
GillHarrison  +   616d ago
Give us an HD trilogy pack of all 3 on PS3. So many people (like me) enjoyed the original and never had the chance to play the sequels.

Not sure why they didn't localize this. One of the games I want the most.
knifefight  +   615d ago
PSP sales in NA are laughable.
PSP in Japan prints money.

Anyway, nice article, but having played all 3 I still prefer the original. And then 3, and then 2.

they said they wont localize this game because valkyria chronicles 2 didn't sell enough.
