  • pepsi

    I assume it ran on 30fps on the ps3?

    • Zack

      Yep. It didn’t really matter much to me, though, as I spent more time in “aim mode” than running around. Still, 60fps is great to have. I sure hope this sells well!

    • Fronkhead

      It did, yeah.

  • DesmaX

    Well, Sega has been competent enough with their PC ports (Even Sonic Generations works well on my machine).

    Hope I can downsample, the game should look fantastic in 4K

    • persona_yuji

      Ugh Sonic Generations… that PC port gave me nightmares to make it to work somewhat properly. Altough it wasn’t Sega’s fault, but my laptop and the NVidia Optimus thingy.
      Increbly annoying when the game didn’t acknowledge my Nvidia card and only the Intel one.

      • DesmaX

        That sounds like a pain. Sorry to hear that

  • Spirit Macardi

    Port Resonance of Fate to PC as well and you can have all my money.

    • DesmaX

      And Vanquish

      • Spirit Macardi

        *smacks forehead* HOW COULD I FORGET THAT?! That’s a game of theirs that should have been on PC from the start!

    • NotCirnoLakes

      A tri-Ace game on Steam would be a dream come true!

  • WonderSteve

    Hi-Resolution will be like a free upgrade to the scouts. Alicia will be even more deadly :)

    • Kai2591

      Haha I find it strange lots of people say scouts are overpowered – I never felt that way about them.
      Or maybe I never realized it haha.

  • This is great. So glad Valkyria Chronicles is still getting attention years later. Now if they made a Valkyria Chronicles with an online feature as well I think that would be pretty awesome.

    • Kai2591

      I admit I once desired such a feature.
      But now I just want them to focus 100% on single-player experience.

  • Weird Al Yankovic

    Hope it’ll have all the DLC stuff too…

    • DesmaX

      It does

    • ronin4life

      It does

    • Milewide

      It does

  • Tatsuya1221

    So sega does what square-enix don’t (referring of course to how horribly handled the final fantasy 13 pc version was ported).

    Really looking forward to this, already own it on my ps3, look forward to owning it again on the pc.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    I hope it also supports 3D. That game must be beautiful with the added depth.

  • One of the greatest and most criminally underrated games I’ve ever played, DLC included, 60 FPS, customizable controls, cheap price, and it supports my ridiculously expensive and not frequently used 1440p monitor. Done. Sold. Take my money. Take it now.

    • Kaijuu

      Seriously. I was already sold on it just being available on PC, but it seems like they’re really putting the effort into making this a proper PC port. Here’s hoping it does well enough to show SEGA that we appreciate any and all effort put into bringing their games to PC.

      • Kai2591

        We feel you bro.

        Let’s show them our commitment!

    • Damn right. I still have my PS3 copy, but I’m going to buy it again just because.

    • Kai2591

      So. Much. Truthiness!

  • Kaitou21

    Sweg, I didn’t plan on playing it after I bought it but i might just do that to enjoy it in PC 1080p goodness.

  • KingGunblader

    It’s times like this where I curse the fact that I own a Mac…

    • NotCirnoLakes

      I and others would be happy to help you learn how to build a PC!

      • KingGunblader

        I couldn’t possibly afford to build a PC at this point, maybe in 2 to 5 years!

  • Jadfish

    Guess I’ll join up again.
    It was pretty amazing on PS3. I wouldn’t mind some 60fps.

    • Kai2591

      Aye, sir!

  • Milewide

    Basiscape brings this game to another level of excellent. Music-time!

  • James Robert Thompson

    Those are pretty low recommended reqs compared to most console ports.. I mean I can pull that off on my old laptop; sega be doing good! If we get HD remaks of 2 and 3 as well then they can have my wallet!

  • The PS3 ver. had slowdown at weird parts, so glad to here this is being “unlocked” for the PC release. 1080p 60FPS Valkyria Chronicles+DLC on PC for cheap. This is awesome.

  • Rinku

    Never played it because i never had a ps3. Would it be recommended for someone who doesn’t like standard turn-based/strategy games too much?
    ( i did like Eternal Sonata en probably will like Neptunia, if that’s relevant… )

    • Laith Rem

      It’s a similar battle system of limited “zones” so in that regard, yeah.

    • Kai2591

      I recommend it. I myself dislike/cannot handle SRPGs but VC’s battle system is so different and personally i think its a lot easier to learn :)

    • darke

      When I last played it, years ago, it played far more like a “pauseable real-time” game then a pure turn based. You move in real time, shooting takes a certain time chunk, and from memory you don’t have a specific order which you have to move your units in; so you can move unit one, swap to the second and move them because they were standing in your line of fire, swap back to the first to fire, etc. I may be misremembering though. :P

    • Shippoyasha

      When you get a turn to move, it’s in a live action, 3rd person shooter style view. It’s kind of hard to explain. Battle of LIve Tactical Zones it is called. Aka BLITZ system. It is both turn based and real time based.

  • IndigoRift

    Pretty low requirements. I should be able to push 1440p easily enough. Never played this before, so it’s a buy for me, especially since my PS3 is dead.

  • Brandonmkii

    Someday decent computers will go down in price. Until then, I can still play the ps3 version.

    • Cero55

      Building a pc is very affordable, especially if your aiming for console quality.all you have to do is look for deals and buy parts as they go on sale. My gaming rig cost me about $300 and it plays just about anything on high setting.plus games are SO much cheaper than consoles you end up saving tons.

      • Naygen

        Could you please give us your specs?
        My computer is about 7 years old and about to break any day now.
        I’d like to get a nice, cheap machine.

      • Barrylocke89

        Don’t forget that Black Friday/Cyber Monday’s coming in a month. Now’s a great time to start making a list of components for a system, especially if you have the cash for it.

      • Zeik56

        $300 seems rather low for playing current gen games at high settings. I suppose that could depend on how lucky you get with deals and how many parts you’re carrying over from a previous PC, but if you’re building from scratch (including a good monitor and OS) I don’t think you’re going to get that lucky.

      • Sion12

        …i call bull unless you can tell me your spec. anything on 1080p with high will require atleast $150 graphic card and just window 7 cost $99.

        plus why aim for console level pc instead of a console that last 10 year?

        • Cero55

          CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor+Motherboard: Asus Z87-K ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($195 @ microcenter)

          Notes- Memory,Windows 7 and Case were all one bundle. i used every rebate received to buy another pc part.

          I also just use my tv to game.

          • Sion12

            …i dont know if you are telling the truth or you are master sales man but everything you bought is at a impossibly cheap price.

          • Cero55

            If you read IndigoRift you can see that its about the grind my build was almost a year looking for parts on sale.if you watch slick deals alot of these parts are on sale now Way more often,if your not afraid of rebates you can get most of the stuff SO cheap.

    • IndigoRift

      I can vouch for what Cero55 said. You’re really just sinking time into measuring what a realistic budget would be in accordance with your circumstances, and fishing for good deals on components while you build up on your cash. It’s about knowing what components best suit your needs and sticking with that. You can easily match current consoles for a fair/cheap price, or outright double their level of performance with a more sizable investment. You get what you pay for.

      My system was a 6-month grind to earn, but I think a key thing to keep in mind is that you can’t let yourself get caught up in the tech loop. That’s when gaming or enthusiast builds will get crazy-expensive on you. New tech for PCs is being churned out at every turn, and if you place yourself in that loop, your budget will skyrocket. I’m speaking from experience here as I had spent $1000+ more than what I originally projected, taking me twice as long to complete my system. No regrets though (especially since I was replacing a dying laptop). If you want a system–be it a console equivalent or a monster–it all comes down to the grind and your focus.

    • Woot Woot

      Hmm. PC parts go down in price a lot faster than consoles though. e.g. the HD 7850 the PS4 uses is only what 80$ now?

    • NotCirnoLakes

      Decent computers are really cheap right now, though.

  • Michael Kelehan

    If this does well, I can see VC2 getting a Steam release, since porting PSP games to Steam is apparently easier than it used to be. And if THAT does well too…

    • I don’t know if it’s easy. A lot of XSEED’s games were original released on PC in Japan. Corpse Party is based of it’s original PC release. Trails in the Sky was delayed over half a year due to reprogramming a ton of stuff. Although I think the latter was because the original Japanese release was a mess to work with. Not necessarily a PSP problem.

  • Maxx Kilbride

    Awesome. Someone is 1-upping SE.

    • NotCirnoLakes

      It’s really uncommon that these options aren’t available…
      That’s one of the wonderful things about PC gaming, things like this are almost always supported.

      I’m disappointed in Square Enix for their port of Final Fantasy XIII…
      I hope they will patch it in the future.

  • For $20, I will buy this again if it has even a tiny shred of a chance of convincing Sega to do more with this franchise on consoles and PC.

    C’mon FF: Type-0 HD style remake of Valkyria Chronicles 3… *crossing fingers*

  • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

    25 GB?! Damn…

    • Kaetsu

      That’s nothing compared to the 60GB for Final Fantasy XIII.

      • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

        That’s crazy.

    • darke

      Blame all the pre-rendered 1080p movies that PS3 games are fond of since they’ve got a huge blu-ray disc to fill. :)

      • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

        That makes sense.

    • Sion12

      isnt that pretty standard size now day?

      • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

        Really? Most games I have for PC are between 8-12 GB. Well… I’m surprised, lol.

  • Max Leo

    If we buy this game then more SEGA games will come to PC! Let’s support this move by SEGA!

    Wishful thinking: A new hope for Yakuza in the west? Shenmue 1+2 PC? :o

    • Kaetsu

      Also all of the Platinum games that Sega published like Vanquish and Anarchy Reigns.

      • Max Leo

        Oh baby!

      • Jadfish

        BAYO

  • The ability to change controls!? Awww yis!

  • Kaetsu

    This is starting to sound like a great port. I was worried it would end up being a mediocre port like FFXIII but it seems like they’re actually making an effort. I’m definitely going to support this!

    • Jadfish

      well it’s sega, so given their track record I would at least give them the benefit of the doubt. That being said, Squar-Enix does make good PC ports for their western published games (probs becuz the western devs actually give a shit about the PC)

  • Kaetsu

    OOOOOOOOOOOH MY GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWD! I just jizzed when I found Hitoshi Sakimoto did the music for this game. I was going to buy it anyway but now I’m SUPER excited! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOKYKid2uPg

    • Kai2591

      DAT SONG.
      NOSTALGIA.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Seriously. Can’t wait.

    • KazukiNanbu

      Squad 7 move out!

    • echokanon

      Empty Loneliness was what got me interested to this game/series

  • Trotmeister

    Valkyria coming to PC is easily the best JRPG news of the year.

    • Fox

      It’s a squad-based strategy game with minor RPG elements, not an RPG proper.

      But, yeah: great news all the same.

    • Shippoyasha

      Now onto VC2 and 3, HD remastered!

      • Kai2591

        and then forwards, unto a new sequel!

        • DrForbidden

          Given the state of PC gaming in Japan, do you honestly believe that VC games doing well on PC in the west will convince Sega to make a new VC game?

          • Kai2591

            Here comes the pessimists. Yes yes we are aware of how seemingly impossible that outcome might be, but we’re simply hoping for a miracle.

            Besides, surprises do happen.

          • DrForbidden

            A pessimist is one who expects an unfavourable outcome despite the signs pointing to a favourable one. Someone who points out that that there are absolutely no signs of a favourable outcome in the first place is therefore a realist, not a pessimist.

            Let’s all hope for the best and support VC on PC if we can, but we really shouldn’t hold our collective breathes on this one.

          • Kai2591

            T-then you’re a….a….pessimistic realist!!

            Hmph!
            /runs in denial

  • Axle

    Yes! Fucking win!

  • Kai2591

    Alicia: The most war-hardened veteran twintail girl the world has ever seen.

    • Max Leo

      But….have you seen…Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu?

      *Warning* You must mentally prepare yourself before attempting to watch that show.

      • Shippoyasha

        It’s a cult hit of the current season!

        • Max Leo

          Yeah I’ve only watched episode 1 and it was insane and fun!

          I thought about stopping there, but today I’m thinking it’s like the perfect anime to watch when you want to relax or feel a little depressed haha.

          Are you getting some Power Rangers/pokemon vibes from this show’s style?

          • Kai2591

            Power Rangers indeed.
            Not so much Pokemon though.

            I actually feel bad for the lizard guy in ep1.
            He harmed no one yet gets killed! haha!

          • Max Leo

            LOL yeah the way he died was hilarious.

          • antithesis

            That lizard was totally harming people. Taking away twintail attributes! Unforgivable!

          • Kai2591

            Unforgivable! :)

          • Shippoyasha

            Absolutely! It also harkens to Kamen Rider and magical girl stuff as well. They are parodying a lot of stuff in the show.

        • Gotta love them twintails =^_^=

      • Kai2591

        I have.
        And I love it.

        But I mean WWII kind of war-hardened, knowhatImean?

        • Max Leo

          Haha I know what you mean.

  • Thelastgunstar

    After FFXIII’s port…I’m weary. My PC should have no issue with it but the FPS bounces between 30 and 60, making the game practically unplayable.

    Hope SEGA can deliver.

    • Abend

      this isn’t square sega usually does pretty good pc work, usually.

      • Shady Shariest

        Sonic Generations was a mess, though :X

        • Abend

          A mess? you mean like dark souls? i find that hard to believe, i had no issues with the pc version of Generations.

          • Shady Shariest

            I had every single bit of the way :/ And some other people. too :X

            It’s weird… Something divided everyone 50/50 in terms of performance :X

        • Ni ~Algidus~

          I never had problem with generation on my PC. what was the problem(s)?

        • Jadfish

          That is honestly the first I have heard of that. Generations ran incredibly well on my laptop (of all things), and every SEGA PC game (aside from the Total War games of course) ran perfectly well on it too

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      Don’t let SE lazyness think that od PC and JP devs. SEGA are actually competent in the PC department. SE didn’t bothered with optimization and a bunch of other stuff because the port is on PC to be used on that failed cloud gaming project.
      I just hope that Xiii-2 and LR are having some effort put into them

  • Armageddon

    Hope the optimization is good.

  • DrForbidden

    Yeah, but does it support modding?

  • JMaster3000

    Welp i guess Valkyria Chronicles won’t look cinematic like AC Unity.

    • CycloneFox

      I know, your post might not be serious, but ironical, but still I have to state what I think about the graphics debate for VC.

      Imo, VC looks better. Assassins Creeds always have nice graphics with much of polygons, but artistically, they always looks pretty awkward and fuzzy.
      Valkyria Chronicles on the other hand still has pretty nice graphics and imo, the best cell-shading optics, I’ve ever seen in any video game. If you pause the game or look at the character models in the menu, they look exactly like hand-drawn.

      • JMaster3000

        I was stating that its 60FPS not that the game looks bad lol.

        And indeed the artstyle is great in VC.

        AC game looks always the same just with more polygons, i don’t see much improvement in them other than ” more people on screen ” and now they are trying to talk us down with ” cinematic look ” aka 30fps. (just whao)

        Haven’t played VC so idk how the game really looks(hope i will soon) but for now Project Diva F2nd is the best looking game for me. http://i.imgur.com/5kyFsk5.png

    dat ragdolling man, hurt my heart when some died and there arms are up their ass and their legs in there head ; _ ;

    • Jadfish
