Only the table of contents are out so watch this space, we’ll update it with Valkyria Chronicles 3 news as soon as it comes in.
Valkyria Chronicles 3 takes place in 1935, the same time period as Valkyria Chronicles 1 where the Principality of Gallia fought for its independence. In an interview with Famitsu, Shinji Motoyama, Producer, mentioned the long development time between the PSP and the PS3 version (over two years) was one of the reasons Valkyria Chronicles 3 is on PSP. He feels they need an innovative idea to make a new PS3 game standout.
The game centers around the “Nameless”, a squad made out of members who caused problems for the military. Imuka is ace number 1 (right). Her village was destroyed by the Valkyria and she’s out for revenge. Kurt is number 7 (middle), he’s an officer who hopes to redeem himself and to the regular military forces. Reira is number 13 (left) and she’s a descendant of the Valkyria.
Valkyria Chronicles 3 is slated for January 27, 2011 in Japan, that’s less than a year after the release of Valkyria Chronicles 2.
