If you are one of the many disgruntled Valkyria Chronicles fans cursing Sega at least once a day for refusing to localize the third chapter of the series, i come bearing gifts, as the fan translation of the game is finally available.
A group of valiant fans took upon themselves to translate the whole game on their own free time, and finally managed to release the first playable patch, that works with the Extra Edition of the game and translates it all besides a few small areas here and there and the extra missions (that will be covered in a future release).
Normally we wouldn’t support something that requires you to install a custom firmware on your console, but western Valkyria Chronicles fans have been denied for way too long.
Of course we strongly encourage you to legally purchase your copy of the game. Conveniently, it’s on sale on the Japanese PSN for 980 yen (less than 10 bucks) until January the 8th. The patch does work with the digital download of the game, and you can find details on that here.
Can you imagine a best way to start the new year than playing Valkyria Chronicles 3? I really can’t.
