Shuntaro Tanaka, Chief Producer for the game, indicated that, contrary to growing belief, Valkyria Chronicles 2 is a true sequel to the first iteration, and that the development team is giving all their effort into making this game.
I'm really excited for this one.Thank you Sega.
Still would like to see a game that covers the navy and air-force of the VC world. That's a squeal in my book.
And I hope it stays exclusive for the PS3.
@ above. Did you not even read the article? It's a PSP exclusive. SEGA is showing again why they have some many issues. They bring out a great game that has gained support amongst the hardcore crowd on PS3 and now take it to PSP for money and exposure.
I'm not liking the direction VC2 is taking. First of all, the character designs are terrible, and the going to class and falling in love is kinda off for some reason.
Sega keeps making strange decisions.
Unless Sony is funding the game, why not just make it multiplat? Why keep releasing games like Madworld, The Conduit... on the Wii? It's these kind of stupid decisions that killed the Dreamcast.
Buy a PS3/PSP then
Looks like you feel entitled to every third party game. If you want to play the game, the solution is simple. Get a PS3. You chose to get another console and should have factor in what you're missing out if you pick console X over PS3. Seriously, if this attitude keeps up, there mind as well be a single console which I strongly oppose to the idea. Exclusives make up a console not Multiplatform. I miss the older generation where exclusives meant exclusives and each console had something unique. Now, it's just give me give me give me. What killed the Dreamcast was pirating and Peter Moore.
Give me a multiplayer one on one death match!!! and i'll forgive you, on bringing it to the psp!! : )
Hell, I was already sold when it was announced.
This is pretty badass, but I would have liked to see it on the PS3 instead :/
This sounds a lot like Persona: "When not in battle, they're normal students who take classes, play, and fall in love." Awesome, VC is one of my top 5 games this gen. I'm going to give those guys at Sega a chance, no doubts about it, VC2 is officially a must buy. So far 3 PS3 exclusives (Ds, R&C and UC2), 3 PSP games (VC2, Persona, AC:Bloodlines) and two multiplats (Batman:AA, AC2) if reviews are generally positive, are in my 2009 must buy cart.
people quit your b!tching about this not coming on ps3 did you ever think about Japan and how many psp's there are over their? and i could careless since i have a psp
I was really disappointed when I found out this wasn't going to be on the PS3. I loved the first one on the console and currently don't have a PSP. I wonder if they will release this for the go...maybe I have to pick this up. Sega...why must you toy with my emotions. I mean, you would think after spending all of that money to develop the canvas engine for the ps3, they would at least make one more game (idea...maybe Sega is planning something ELSE for the PS3)! Who knows!
It's obvious that their main focus is going to be more sales/less cost, being why they chose the PSP. I find it sad, but true that SEGA will be better off on this path with Japanese gamers flocking to handhelds and being wary of HD consoles. On the other hand, I expect this to sell less in the U.S. and perhaps EU seeing that PSP's market isn't as big compared with Japan, so maybe it'll still offset and be equal in sales compared to VC1. Bottom line for me: A sequel should not be announced exclusively on another console/handheld when it's fanbase was originally from that system prior; especially when the first release was only around a year ago! Being a PS3 owner I find it to be a slap in the face.
I too think the decision to move VC2 to PSP is because of the high cost of developing on next gen hardware, and the low sales the original had. And it will probably (hopefully) do well in asia so we can see a PS3 sequel later...
It's Ps3's SRPG gamer's Fault!!! that this game went to psp....... But....I'm way over it now... : )
