Over Three Thousand Soldiers Want Valkyria Chronicles III Localized in the West
It’s not a mystery that here at DualShockers we openly support the plea of the Gallian Liberation Front for an English localization (either on PSP or as an HD remaster on the PS3 and/or the Vita) of Valkyria Chronicles III.
The Gallian Liberation Front’s supportive attitude and convincing arguments have set an example for similar groups that vouch to see their favorite games published in a language they can understand, as Sega recognized while they told us that there’s still hope for an English localization of Valkyria Chronicles III. This has gained them the support of many, including the performer of the Senjou no Valkyria Piano Pieces Casey Ormond.
Casey’s performance of the “Conferral of Honours” theme would definitely be appropriate now, as yesterday night the online petition started by the Gallian Liberation Front passed the milestone of 3,000 signatures, as you can see past the cut.
Two weeks ago, when Joel delivered the printed signatures to Sega’s Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber at New York Comic Con, the count was just north of 2,000. The support of another 1,000 gamers in such a short period should count as a clear signal for Sega that there’s a strong niche of fans that wait for this game, and that they just need to determine the most appropriate method to solve the problems related to the platform (the PSP isn’t very popular in the west, and it’s games are heavily pirated). A HD remake would solve those problems and grant a successful release that would safeguard the value and visibility of the franchise in the west as well.
The Gallian Liberation Front has also started a mailing campaign named “Operation Iron Veil“, that could definitely use your support.
You better listen closely Sega, as the Gallian Liberation front isn’t giving up.
