I know there were some screens running around back when it was announced that Valkyria Chronicles 2 was in the works for the PSP, but here are some brand-spanking new screens that make me want to play the game even more. With its unique blend of strategy RPG elements and hand-drawn art style, all from a third-person perspective, the original Valkyria Chronicles for the PS3 is one of the best JRPGs for current generation systems. Its a shame it was released last year during the fall blitz and didn’t receive the recognition or the sales it deserved from the public.
A part of me is sad the sequel is on the PSP because, for the most part, I don’t handle hand-held gaming too well. But, there are a select few titles that will cause me to get some quality time in with my launch-day PSP, that’s for sure. This is likely going to be one of them, although I don’t expect to see it on this side of the Pacific until next year sometime. Enjoy the screens, and keep a bib handy!
