The mistakenly placed Valkyria Chroncles trailer at E3 2008 wasn’t off that much. Sega is working on a portable Valkyria Chronicles game and Japan gets it this winter.
Famitsu spilled the beans on Valkyria Chronicles 2: The Royal Military Academy of Gallia. The story takes place two years after Valkyria Chronicles and introduces a new cast of characters. Even though this game is for PSP it uses the watercolor style CANVAS engine.
Sega explains the concept of the game is “school + war”. You control a group of military cadets as they head for battles in the south. Similar to Persona 3 and Mana Khemia seasons change and different school events come up.
So, if Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out this winter I guess we can hope for fall 2010? That’s a reasonable amount of time for Sega to localize this, if they pick it up.
