Valkyria Duel Blitzes On To Android

By Spencer . August 17, 2012 . 1:49am

vduel1While it doesn’t play like the other Valkyria games, Valkyria Duel is quite popular in Japan. More than 1.5 million people downloaded Valkyria Duel and the number of players should rise again since Hangame just released an Android version.

 

You can download Valkyria Duel for free on Google Play. The game turns popular characters from the Valkyria Chronicles series into cards and you can create your dream army to send on the battlefield.

    Ohhhh yes. I’ll definitely be grabbing this.

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      All that stands between me and this game is an android device and significant Japanese proficiency. …Not exactly a small obstacle though.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I have one of the two… guess I’ll have to wing the other half lol.

      • Aoshi00

        Wait, Jpn apps can’t be d/l’ed by phones from other regions right?  I tried to get several free Jpn android apps before but it wouldn’t let me.. now I clicked on the Valkyria link and it says my phone is not compatible..

        • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

          Hm… I wouldn’t know. I’ve never used Android before.

            I don’t know, man.  I’ve had Market Enabler for a long time now but I’ve never gotten it to work.  And yes, my device is rooted.

            Why is this rap region locked in the first place…

          • 猫 黒

             It definitely works, since I just used it and downloaded this just now.  Try one of the region codes here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Network_Code#J

          • Aoshi00

            Thanks, I would look into it, didn’t know there’s a way to go around d/l’ing apps from a diff region.. was disappointed couldn’t d/l or see Jpn apps.. guess no such thing for iPod/Pad right..  not very tech savvy though, and this is not a must have for me either.. I wanted that day/night dungeon crawler w/ Uematsu music lol..

    <3 for Android! AWESOME!  Glad their spreading the game from just iPhone exclusivity!

    • PoweredByHentai

      Actually, Android support is the first item that they’ve been working on since it officially launched.  iPhone support was slated to come out at an undetermined time after the Android support.

      • Anime10121

         Oh really? I thought it was an iPhone game (considering there is SO much iPhone exclusivity going on nowadays), my mistake then.

  • badmoogle

    How the mighty have fallen…:’(

    • Angeru_Lito

      I Wish Valkyria Chronicles was a “mighty” they never reached that point otherwise we’d have a proper secuel.

      • badmoogle

        It was “mighty” to me (and to a few others)…:/

    • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

       Yeah how dare they make a spinoff/side game.

      • badmoogle

        I don’t mind them making spin offs at all as long as they also continue the main series (and bring it in the west).

        • Luna Kazemaru

           so they have fallen because they aren’t doing what you want lol ok.

    • LynxAmali

       At least it’s still living somehow.

      My poor Sakura Wars….
      What have they done to you?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DIZJRBFSHRAEUIPHL2AZQR73RU Dedan

      if fallen means 1.5 million users…

      • badmoogle

        No it means a fall in ambition and probably in quality.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        Considering “users” does not equal “customers”, that doesn’t really mean anything.

  • SaberSaurus

    Ugh.

  • PoweredByHentai

    The browser game is actually pretty fun.  I’ve been playing it since the beta and have also been playing it since it officially launched last month.

    There’s actually a Selvaria blitzkrieg event going on at the moment where Selvaria and her fighting force of Ace (red) Imperial troopers show up as a super boss of an army.

  • epy

    Cool. Not my cup of tea, but if this makes a Valkyria Chronicles 4 or 5 more viable, I’m glad it is doing well.

  • Jirin

    Is VC3 out in Japan yet?  It’s on a no region code system so I wonder if anyone’s working on a fan translation.

  • SlashZaku

    Have actually been playing this since it launched.  Sure it’s not a direct sequel to the others on PS3/PSP/Vita (although you think they could throw an app out there for Vita) or VC3 at that but it’s fun for what it is.

    Been playing on Server 2 (-Zaku-, Coalition: W.Wolfs) if anyone else is on there (West side, since saying Blue/Red is pointless cause each side sees the other as Red).

    • PoweredByHentai

      I’m playing on Server 1.  My deck is currently composed of mostly Rare cards.  That and I just got one of the Selvaria Super Rare event cards.  XD

      • SlashZaku

        See, now I hate you.  I’ve opened 2-3 event packs and have only gotten UC cards :(  Would love to get a Selvaria card (would also like the current image they’re using as a background but one thing at a time).

        The last 2 Rares I’ve gotten have been doubles.  Not sure if I should go ahead and synth them into the ones I currently have or if I should bulk them up.

        • PoweredByHentai

          As for the duplicate Rares, that depends on whether you’re using them in your main or support decks.  If you are using those cards at all, then I’d suggest pumping the one you’re using all the way to its max level and then feeding the duplicate to the maxed out card.

          That is one of the few ways to promote a card to a higher rank.  Higher ranked cards have higher stats, higher level caps, and generally have greater firepower.

          For those who are interested and are reading this:

          Card Types are composed of Premium (P), Super Rares (SR), Rares (R), Uncommon (UC), and Common (C).

          Card Classes are Scout, Shocktrooper, Lancer (anti-tank), Engineer (medic), Armored Tech (shield), Fencer (great sword), Sniper, and Tanks.  If you have played VC3, you’ll be disappointed that Gunners (heavy machine gun operators) aren’t in Valkyria Duel.

          Card Ranks start from something like Private 3rd Class and progress through Private 2nd Class and so on.

          I’ve actually typed up a fairly extensive review of the beta about a week or two before Valkyria Duel was slated to go official.  Between the Beta and its Official release, the underlying mechanics are still the same but it is still well-within a dedicated free-player’s power to be able to go toe-to-toe against paying players.

      • Luna Kazemaru

         I almost got everything i had in beta

        • PoweredByHentai

          I got my Triumvirate of Rares (Kurt, Riela and Imuca) for my primary force with an SR card mixed in and Yaeger for my force’s leader.

          • Luna Kazemaru

            I got lucky with super rare of imca and sniper kurt lulz. STILL EDY IS MY LEAD!!!

          • PoweredByHentai

            Yeah, SR Edy’s Order is kind of on the ridiculous side of things.  =/

            SR Selvaria swimsuit (exodia deck) is going to be difficult to collect.  I only have the first one.  I still need the other 3 and then I need the standalone SR Selvaria swimsuit leader.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             I’m grinding for that aswell swimsuit selvaria as a shocktrooper F-YAH!!!! Also trying to get that SR rosie.

          • PoweredByHentai

            SR Rosie drawn by Raita is HOT.  XD

        • Luna Kazemaru

           Yes I know I love the art they are putting into these cards and not just copy and pasting everything.

          • PoweredByHentai

            That’s really what makes the SR and some of the R cards so special.  XD

      • SlashZaku

        OK, just got one of the Selvaria cards (2nd one from the left, take a guess).  I also got some ticket I think with the card.  Know what that’s for?

  • HassanJamal

    This is ok but I want a full fledged valkyria chronicles title on ps3 and ps vita. please sega, open your eyes.

  • Closet_Ninja

    dang it way isn’t there a new console version yet been wait since the first one =/

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DIZJRBFSHRAEUIPHL2AZQR73RU Dedan

    sega of america. bring. nao.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      Right, they failed to bring V3 even when companies offered to localize -and- publish it for them but they are going to localize a mobile game~.

      Well..it’s Sega and they are morons so on a second thought, maybe it’ll happen~.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        Butt hurt detected maybe if people supported VC2 and didn’t cry and moan about it being on the psp and or didn’t hack it which I do know a number of cry babies did 3 would have came. Its a shame to because 3 is pretty nice.

        • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

          Sega is the company with dysfunctional branches where one of them (Sega of America) opposed a DC version of Streets of Rage because they didn’t know what the franchise was all about. Butt hurt? Hardly, I own a PSP and a legit copy of VC2, never had a PS3 so neither of your accusations really fit in here~.

          I’m sure piracy played against many decisions when it comes to the PSP (granted that applies to every company and yet everybody else did bring stuff to the west), but I’m quite confident stupidity spear headed the decision to not bring VC3 over nor allow others to take on the localization of it~.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    I would like to play this but alas its region locked and I need to be able to understand the words in the first place lol

    (Looks slyly at SEGA with 1 eye open to see if they take the bait)

  • ruzanco

    Why? S1 Galaxy?! Why?! Argh… my phone can’t download it… too bad, wish this will stay free if ever I get an upgrade soon ^_^;;

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

      If you’re not in Japan, you can’t get it anyways – it’s region locked as are most if not all Japanese games on Android via Google Play, something the article fails to mention.

  • brian yep

    Probably a dumb question but does it have a story?

    • PoweredByHentai

      It’s a browser card battle game.  There is no story.

  • Eilanzer

    There will be a day when a VC game will play in cross platform between ps3 and vita…In English…I´m dreaming too much!? (._.)
