There hasn’t been a peep out of Sega about releasing Valkyria Chronicles 3 in the West, which is highly unfortunate. However, there may be news on the way for the franchise in general. An update to the Valkyria Chronicles 3 blog hints at some news coming down the line, perhaps just in time for the Tokyo Game Show next month. Whether or not it will have anything to do with a Western release for the latest PSP entry in the franchise is anyone’s guess, but it may be news nonetheless.
I’m pretty sure the franchise did better in Japan than in the shooter-dominated market of North America, so it could also be the announcement of another game in the series – perhaps even a return to its PS3 roots. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
