RPGamer: Valkyria Chronicles Impressions

At E3 this year, RPGamer had the opportunity to sit down and play a mission of Sega's Valkyria Chronicles for the PlayStation 3. Let's just get it out of the way: it was fantastic.

They've done a really good job of melding genres together. This has resulted in a tactical RPG that feels accessible to a diehard Final Fantasy Tactics fan, but adds innovations to the genre like first-person aiming and third person 3-D character movement.

I downloaded 2 trailers of it from the PS store and it got my attention. Reminds me kinda of old-school RPG with the art style. I'll probably be getting it.

i am really lookign forward to this game and eternal sonata(with the extra content and characters) this fall.

360 does have the advantage in RPGs at the moment but with Eternal Sonata coming to PS3 this fall along with Disgaea 3 and this, it seems JRPG fans still have there fix.

We could see a new square exclusive at the start of august, the rumored new tales game for the PS3 at TGS, the mystery Atlus announcement could be a new ps3 game, not to mention if any of the square titles become multiplatform.

The JRPG tide could change real quick I am not saying it will but it could and this game looks to be one of the best games coming this fall cant wait to get my hands on it.

Doesn't Nippon Ichi have one or two exclusives to announce in the upcoming months?

ExcelKnight3710d ago

Yes, NIS has Disgaea 3 coming next month for PS3, they're publishing Mana Khemia Portable sometime later this year, and already talked about a couple of exclusive PS3 games that they promise will take full advantage of the PS3s graphical capabilities. (as opposed to the criticisms Disgaea 3 got)

This game is looking to be really great! To be honest I didn't expect anything too above average when I first heard about it. I was interested... but I didn't want to expect too much. However, now that we've gotten to see more of it and I've been hearing all the hands-on impressions... it appears it will be a solid title! My only hope is that the story and voice-acting will be up to par with the game's refreshing gameplay.

Also I have to say this title is quite beautiful. Some cutscenes (like the tank breaking through the wall) really make me think I'm watching a Ghibli film! Can't wait for this one! Finally looks like we'll have some tasty RPG's.
