    And with that I found my new desktop background.

    So, this generation’s best new original property is reduced to begging on the iOS street corner for pennies. I don’t know whether I’m more disgusted with Sega for wasting such a valuable property, or the public for not buying the console releases. Probably both.

    • SlashZaku

      I wouldn’t say it’s a ‘waste’ of the property as I’ve been enjoying Duel but if we don’t get a new VC title for PS3/Vita/PS4, then yeah, SEGA has squandered the IP.  Don’t know why they don’t make a Vita version as well since the series is at home on PS platforms =  At the very least, make a Collection for Vita with VC1 included and all the DLC for the games and release it prior to VC4.  Hell, make another spin-off title that’s an RTS.  I know some of the staff members talked about wanting to aerial and naval units and we’ve yet to see those.

      Ideally, I’d love if SCEJ stepped in to help the IP (marketing, funding, putting their 1st party tech behind the CANVAS engine, etc.) as a co-publisher since I’m worried about how SEGA will handle it going forward or give it another decent shot.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Considering .hack itself also had its own iOS game, does CCcorps disgusting too?

      This game actually is quite well done even though the battle system uses card. the 3D graphics is quite nice there.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      oh look more “gamer logic” got to love it yo.Seeing as how the game was well made and is getting a lot of support its giving Sega money. Honestly you smartphone/mobile gaming haters need to get the hell over yourselves because for one YOU aren’t the target audience and most of those games stay in Japan.

      • Shaun Huseman

        So according to your logic, whatever game a company decides to make is absolutely amazing and a must have. When you make three well received games that sold decently (more so VC2 and VC3 which made them money), and then go ahead and make a card battling game that no one asked for, it’s calling milking in the worst possible way. 

        Sorry I dont share your sentiment that games with touch controls arent amazing. I have nothing against mobile games, just smartphone games with atrocious control schemes. If anyone needs to get over themselves, it’s you.

        • Ladius

          The point is that this game’s release never prevented Sega from announcing or developing another numbered entry in the series, so trying to paint it as some horrible offence on the fanbase is unwarranted.

          Even the argument about Sega milking the series is kinda strange considering Valkyria so far has three main entries and a single side project like this, not to mention pretty much every single jrpg series with some following has a smartphone spin offapp in Japan.

          If anything, keeping the franchise alive with spin offs like this one actually improves the chances for a new game being released later on, while leaving the franchise unactive for years could very well make it less relevant considering it’s niche to begin with.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             Someone who speaks logic.

        • You know what can actually be considered “milking in the worst way possible”? Making a side-story or sequel and botching up the effort there. This isn’t even related to the main series; if anything, this is just an online trading card system for fans. Which you don’t even need to pay if you don’t want to. Sure, nobody was asking for it, but then I also doubt people were asking Nintendo for a Pokémon trading card game to begin with. It just came into existence, it’s harmless, and that’s all that matters. Frankly, I’m just glad they’re not attempting a sequel (and subsequently fall flat) in their current financial situation.

          And before things go out of control, I request that both of you drop the friction, including the “No, you!” lines.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           You clearly need to learn what milking is then if you think this is milking go look at persona 4 then come back to me ok dear. The fact this this didn’t stop a new VC coming out Sega’s problems before hand put a stop to that for the time being and they are trying to get their crap together. The only people who didn’t want it is the loud vocal community that put that have been crying about ANYTHING VC related ever since it moved to the PSP then let the game bomb and now are all butt hurt over the fact that 3 is not in the west I wounder WHY!! Which makes me laugh at the fact you say no one wanted it yet the Japanese player base seems to be alright with the game and I play it which in term giving sega money.(on the pc which still blows your little argument out the water). SO again get over yourself or go cry a river.

          • [Ahem] “Friction”.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             ok ok sorry.

    • MrTyrant

      I undertand what are you saying. It’s kind of sad, gotta love the old times when you see new IP’s all the time and companies loved to take some risk.

      Anyway, I don’t think it’s so big deal anyway. Im not seeing this game as a secuel, it’s more like an spin-off mini-game with cards. They are not using all the original production to do this game, so they won’t waste much time doing and they’ll earn money from it. No problem if this help future projects.

    • malek86

      I’m still not sure why smartphone games are seen as inherently evil. No, really, this is the impression I normally get from reading users comments about them.

      If this game had come out, let’s say, on Steam instead of smartphones, would you be saying the same thing now?

      • Göran Isacson

        … Actually that does make me curious- have any games like this been released for Steam in the past? Card-based strategic games that look like they could fit on a smart-phone, that is. I know they have a ton of indie games on it, but I’m not that well-versed in what kind of indie games are carried there.

        • malek86

          Uhm. Aside from the usual Magic The Gathering stuff, there’s Runespell, which is a sort of poker and RPG mix. Can’t think of much else right now, but then, I’m not too informed on the matter. Besides, I’m not even sure what kind of card game this is.

          • There’s also PoxNora, which is apparently part grid-based strategy game, part trading “card/figures” with a booster pack system. It’s F2P, so doesn’t hurt to check, I guess.

    •  How is it a waste if there are three main games in the series before this spinoff came around?

    • yeah sega should just sink money in a franchise that no one is buying… i’m sorry but the blame is on the buying public but i guess it’s easier to hate on sega.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    My one major disappointment for TGS this year was that there were no announcements from Sega about anything that deals with the Valkyria Chronicles franchise.

    I hope they have something soon, ’cause this doesn’t bode well for such a unique IP… =(

  • Must….have….game…..localized……ugh….. (Passes out from level of want). =^_^=

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Its time to move on.

      • AceWildCard

         Even so a person can dream, no?

  • Z3

    Am I the only one who gets an infinite loading screen when I open the game?

  • Demeanor

    The VC series is amazing, I really still can’t accept that it never had the success it justly deserves, starting from the absolutely epic first game.
    Incidentally I’m playing VC3 E2 on my PSP these days (got the hardcopy, zannen >_<) and though quite challenging language-wise (I'm being bombarded by military jargon XD) the game, missions, characters and story are really awesome! Kurt shoui FTW! ^ ^

    If Nintendo pulls a Bayonetta 2 on this series my purchase of a Wii U (something I am not remotely planning to do right now) will suddenly jump to 90% probability. Imagine a full HD VC2 + VC3 collection, and a promise of VC4…

    • SlashZaku

      This is actually something I don’t want to happen: the series jumping platforms entirely (but after the Bayonetta 2 thing, it’s something I fear will probably happen: Nintendo locking up the franchise).  I’d rather Sony back the series.  I know people will argue that the IP staying alive is what’s best but fans weren’t happy with the move to PSP (still wanting it to return to PS3) and then this side game on PC/Android/iOS doesn’t help matters so jumping a family of platforms entirely is going to be another backlash.

  • almostautumn

    And then I remember VC3, and I cry.

  • Ponsay

    Nevermind. To anyone having trouble, scroll down on the welcome screen (It’ll say something like ゲーム ようこそ) and hit the orange box.

    SEGA is turning me into an importer.
