If you don’t know who Casey Ormond is, well, you should, because he’s an extremely talented composer and pianist. He’s also the one that arranged and performed the pieces in Senjou no Valkyria Piano Pieces. A lovely soundtrack CD that includes several of the themes of the Valkyria Chronicles series.
Today Ormond sent a nice message to the Gallian Liberation Front (the user-powered group supporting the localization of Valkyria Chronicles III in the west), alongside with a special surprise:
Hey there GLF!
I made a quick little piano arrangement of “Conferral of Honours” (the victory/evaluation theme) to celebrate your next inevitable milestone of 1500 members.”
And indeed, here’s the youtube clip of Ormond playing “Conferral of Honours” in support of the Gallian Liberation Front:
Things seem to go really well for the Gallian Liberation front (and for all gamers that can appreciate an exceptionally good game like Valkyria Chronicles III), after Sega openly admitted to our camera that there’s still hope for the much awaited localization of the third chapter of the Valkyria Chronicles series. Morale was bolstered and there’s no doubt that Ormond’s support will lift it even further.
This could come at no better time, as the Gallian Liberation Front just launched the “Operation Iron Veil” mailing campaign. You can support them as well at their facebook page and by signing their petition.
