Valkyria Chronicles 2 Announced; PSP Bound

Valkyria Chronicles - Playstation 3

Valkyria Chronicles - Playstation 3

In my opinion, Valkyria Chronicles has been the best RPG I’ve played this generation so far, and there’s been some pretty damn good RPGs this gen.

The Playstation 3 exclusive hit last year to mediocre sales, despite critical and gamer acclaim.

Fans of the series will be pleased to know that Sega has reveal via Famitsu magazine that a sequel is in the works. What will no doubt bring them some measure of dismay is that the title is heading to the Playstation Portable, not the Playstation 3 this time.

Personally, it doesn’t matter to me, as more VC is better than no VC. Also, I imagine that Sega is playing it safe this time around, possibly hoping to build a stable fanbase on the 40+ million strong PSP owners out there, and then reintroducing the series on the PS3 at a later date, when the user base has grown beyond it’s current 25+ million users.

I’m still working my way through the epic first one, so I can wait for this new entry to show itself, which has no set release date as of this time.
