So...PSP, january 27th. 
 
....okay. 
 
I mean, it's fine....it's FINE. I'm fine with it. They have my money, I will definitely buy this. VC2 is incredible, more VC is always a good thing. 
 
But..like...man. 
 
I really wanted this to be on the PS3.

I still need to finish the first one. 
I'm waiting for a day the Internet is down :-)

PSP :/

Seems a little soon. But whatever! Like you said, more VC is always a good thing. Clearly, they proved that Valkyria Chronicles can work just fine on the PSP. Would have liked it to be on PS3 as well, but, oh well. I think I read they were returning to the stylistic visuals the first had, rather than the more anime like visuals the second sports.

They said that they'll make a ps3 sequel once they've come up with incredible new ideas that justifies making a huge console version. Which to me is fine because it means that their not just rushing out a game but really trying to make something incredible, so when it'll be out when their ready.  In the meantime we get some really good psp games.

Sega as a publisher is kinda shitty but I like that they're funding this and Yakuza for whatever goofy reason even if they fumble on the english version every time.

@Mesoian: @Fallen189: Valkyria Chronicles is more popular in Japan and in Japan the PSP is still outselling the PS3. That's just how it is.

One year turn around on a new game seems very short, even for a PSP game, hope it's as good as VC2 has been.

But just like, letting the PSP play through the PS3 would be nice, but I'd have to go and buy a new slim. Modern Sega is a pain

VC2 is the best game on the PSP and a fantastic game without qualifiers.
Get over it the PSP is actually good.
I'm fucking pump for VC3 most likely being a bit darker because it's about a squad of criminals.

Glad to hear they are making another one I was worried that they weren't going to be able to make anymore games in this series.

I don't get why they will insist on releasing it for a dead platform... I really wished it was for the ps3... I guess ps3 development got too expensive for them.

Man fuck the PSP.

VC just isn't a game I want to play on the go. Screw the Japanese market.

#18 Posted by ESREVER (2682 posts) -

Really looking forward to learning more about these "Nameless" characters. A darker entry into the franchise seems like it would be pretty neat. 
I just really hope the characters are better than VC2. I'm really having a hard time adjusting to them, but the game is still awesome.

@Nasar7: Hey, I live in Japan, I care about the Japanese market :P. 
 
That said, nothing says you have to use your portable system on the go.  You can sit on your couch and play your PSP just fine if you so want.

@Vorbis: That looks awesome :D I can't wait. 
Really digging the new uniforms "The Nameless" are sporting. Seems like already they have a better cast of characters that VC2. 
Follow feature seems really handy as well. But that dude wasted so much AP trying to get it to work. 
 
Also, did that chick have red hair on top, and white hair on bottom? Or are my eyes just messing with me.

Yeah she did. I guess that's to show she's a Valkyrur.
 
And I have to agree, with VC1 + VC2 I only used the main characters because I had to (CP bonus/story), I've never really liked the main characters, Alicia/Aliasse perhaps being the only two, mostly because they're Valkyrurs. I usually go for the side characters even if I miss out on CP. But so far the main cast of VC3 seems interesting and I might actually use them all the time, especially with the abilitity to turn into a Valkyrur and change a sword into a Lancer.
 
I just hope they don't make all of the Nameless total cliché badasses, I'd still like some variety.
