Update: Until the official Famitsu info comes, this should be treated as a rumor. Until then, don’t take it as a official confirmation.
Update 2: The official Famitsu magazine is out for most of the readers and there is no mention of this rumor, likely confirming that it was a hoax to break the hearts of all those Valkyria Chronicles fans. We apologize for getting your hopes up. Although, this doesn’t mean that SEGA won’t ever do such a trilogy in the future, as it is likely possible that they might do it.
It appears that Valkyria Chronicles might be coming to a new platform after all, according to the latest info from Famitsu Japan.
Valkyira Chronicles was a cult classic strategy RPG from SEGA, that was released exclusively for the PS3. It wasn’t financially a success though but managed to gain quite a devoted set of fans and achieved a cult hit status. SEGA then proceeded to divide the fanbase further by releasing the sequel on the PSP.
Both the original and the sequel were not exactly a financial hit but still SEGA followed the sequel with another entry in the series, this time going back to the classic Valkyria Chronicles gameplay and setting. The new entry was again released on the PSP. While the West managed to get Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 2, it never got the localization of Valkyria Chronicles 3. It was later translated by the fans and made available in the form of a patch on the PSP.
Famitsu Japan lists Valkyria Chronicles Trilogy coming to the PS4 with enhanced graphics and new features as follow:
-Releasing this summer
-1 has visual upgrade
-2 and 3 are remake with grahics based on 1’s visual style
-includes every DLC
-lots of balance adjustments
This info was leaked from the latest issue of Famitsu Japan and it lists the trilogy coming to the PS4. This is a good news for all the Valkyira Chronicles fans as this means that we can finally play these games on a single platform.
