Pictures From The Valkyria Chronicles 3 Premium Demo Event

Yesterday, SEGA held a Valkyria Chronicles 3 promo event for the Japanese games press and fans with an early look at the official demo, which will hit the PlayStation Network next week.


In addition to the contents of the TGS demo, this one includes an additional mission. A Q&A session was held at the event, too, which we’ll detail in a separate upcoming report.  In the mean time, enjoy the images of the event!


Here’s the venue, at SEGA’s headquarters:



Preparations are complete. Here you have the welcoming sign. No Valkyria 3 cosplayers to greet the press though.



Hold it! Looks like Riela (left) and Imca (right) have no plans of letting attendees down:



Can’t have military cosplay without an oh-so-kawaii salute!



Here’s a quick snap of the stage area before attendees started to pour in:



This looks like a pretty grand event. Each press table has two monitors, both with PSPs hooked up to them to allow people to try the game:



That’s Shinji Motoyama to the left, producer of Valkyria Chronicles:



This is the reception area. Attendees started to filter in around this time.



And the event begins!



Director, Takeshi Ozawa, and Motoyama are kicking things off. Riela and Imca look like they’re being put through their paces, posing for all the different photographers:

The Q&A session begins at this point. Expect details on this within the hour.


The press got to take a few goodies away with them, too. Valkyria 3 promo posters and a cleared save file. This can be imported into the full game. Also included were a SEGA pouch, a Sonic the Hedgehog pouch, and a mysterious white envelope…



Riela and Imca are put to work once more as the official photo shoot session begins. Wow, Imca’s model weapon is pretty massive.



Here’s another. Looks like Ozawa and Motoyama are feeling a litle more relaxed now:



Time to please the press with some fancy quotes!



Riela handing out the goodie bags to the press…



Now, it’s time for people to go hands-on with the game at the demo stations. vc3_pro_017


Sort of an anti-climactic note to end on, but press passes! And passes for fans and support staff at the event.



And that’s that. SEGA are certainly pushing Valkyria 3 hard in Japan. Game details coming up in a separate report in just a bit!

    If this game comes to the US I might get it. I missed out on the first two entries.

    That Sonic thing looks like a most own item. I wish they held events like these in America. As an American, I must say that we truly live in an unfair world.

    • joesz

      this game will come definitely to the US 100%.

      might get it? hm! foolish being! you must get it!

    • neetloaf

      Events like this do happen in America… it’s just never for the games that truly matter. ;_;

    • Thiefofhearts

      Funny you say that, there’s an open house soon to be held at the American Sega offices in San Francisco that will focus on VC2, PhSP2 and Sonic 4. Last year’s open house was for PSzero before it was released and had a video conference with the producer of the game and everyone got a free copy.

      You think you have it rough? At least Americans always got the cool Pokemon events back in the day! True injustice was suffered by the rest of us North Americans (Canadians and Mexicans!) I want my Celebi NOW!

    There is no blue haired shining girl, fail!
