Translated GAMER Interview with Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and Valkyria: Azure Revolution Team – Part 2

Earlier on we posted the first part of Nyoro SF’s translation of the GAMER interview with the director and producer for Valkyria: Azure Revolution. This is the second part of the lengthy interview, where we learn more about the fantasy and RPG elements in Valkyria: Azure Revolution, as well as the reason Valkyria Chronicles 2 took a different turn in terms of setting and characters. It’s an interesting read for those interested in Valkyria: Azure Revolution, and the evolution of the Valkyria Chronicles series. You can find the interview below! Once again our thanks go to Nyoro SF for translating the interview, and giving us permission to post it here.

Valkyria Chronicles Developers Interview Insight: VC1 Remaster & The Possibility of VC2 and VC3 Remaster

In February of this year, GAMER sat down for a long interview with Katsura Mikami and Takeshi Ozawa of SEGA, the producer and director (respectively) of Valkyria Chronicles Remaster for the Playstation 4.

Towards the end of this past August, a NeoGAF thread surfaced with a partial translation of the interview provided by Nyoro SF, a Valkyria fan and ardent follower of the franchise. The translated segments contain a variety of helpful pieces of information regarding the development process for Valkyria Chronicles Remaster and of course, the prospect of Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3 being remastered for Playstation 4.

While we will post some of the salient points of the interview in the form of a short summary, please view the thread and if you have a NeoGAF account, post in it to show support for both the Valkyria franchise and the translator’s efforts!

Atlus/SEGA PR Manager Comments on Questions Regarding Valkyria Chronicles 2 & 3 and Azure Revolution

Over at the official Sony PlayStation blog, Atlus U.S.A./SEGA of America PR manager John Hardin commented on the possibility of seeing remastered versions of Valkyria Chronicles 2 & 3, and a possible localization for Valkyria: Azure Revolution. We thought it might be worth sharing the information here, as our readers are no doubt interested in this as well. Read on for a few quotes from Hardin, taken from the comments section on the blog.

Massive Japanese SEGA PSN Sale Features Valkyria Chronicles III, Phantasy Star NOVA, and More

The Japanese PlayStation Store was recently updated with a special sale featuring large list of SEGA games being discounted. For the full list, click here. It’s a sale meant to celebrate the arrival of the Spring season and will last until April 13th.

Among the list of games are Valkyria Chronicles III (PSP) and Phantasy Star NOVA (PSVita), both of which remain unlocalized for Western audiences. 7th Dragon 2020 and 7th Dragon 2020  – II are also marked down. As we know, 7th Dragon III Code: VFD (due for release this summer in the West) marks the first 7th Dragon game to be localized for the West.

The list extends beyond modern SEGA games and goes to the classics. To start, Phantasy Star Complete Collection, and Phantasy Star Generations 1 and Phantasy Star Generations 2 (the PS2 remakes of the first two games) are on sale here. Additionally, some of the other notable classics include Golden Axe, Gunstar Heroes: Treasure Hunters (PS2 version of the original game), Comix Zone, and Streets of Rage II. Even more recent releases like Hell Yeah! and The Cave are on sale too.

While it stings to realize that the West is missing out on some key games like Valkyria Chronicles III and PSNova, the sale is also a testament to the vast library of IPs belonging to SEGA. Many of these are quite cheap, too; most of them run for ¥500, with the outliers being PSNova at ¥2000 and Valkyria Chronicles III at ¥1300.

Be sure to check out the list for yourself!

Chain Chronicle x Valkyria Chronicles - Imca

Valkyria Chronicles X Chain Chronicle: Also Featuring Imca

Expecting the videos for Welkin and Kurt?

Surprise – it’s Imca! She’s rather popular in her own right, a strong fighter of few words but lots of spirit. One interesting to note about Imca is how all of the blue in her design stands out compared to the rest of the Nameless. Having so much color among a group with a muted outfit is visually appealing, in my opinion.

Hopefully there are no mushrooms to give her any trouble in Chain Chronicle. With her trusty weapon Var in tow, not much should be a problem for her to handle. Anyway, check out the short character video for Imca below.

Chain Chronicle X Valkyria Chronicles - Alicia

Valkyria Chronicles X Chain Chronicle Crossover Trailers! Featuring Alicia and Riela

The Valkyria Chronicles series (specifically, strategy RPG titles) is crossing over with the Japanese version of Chain Chronicle. Chain Chronicle is a popular mobile game series in Japan and is even receiving its own anime adaptation. Valkyria Chronicles characters will be featured as selectable units for the game. Sega Networks has produced two short trailers for Alicia and Riela, two of Valkyria’s heroines, fairly popular in their own right, and both of whom are Valkyria.

The global version of Chain Chronicle will be shutting down by the end of February, so sadly there isn’t any chance that this content will be made available outside of the Japanese version.

Wondering where Welkin and Kurt are? You can probably expect to see them in the near future…It seems their cards are ranked slightly lower than the heroines’ cards, though! In any case, check out the trailers below. The original seiyuu have returned to voice their characters.

Operation 422: A Renewed Campaign to Bring Valkyria Chronicles 3 to the West

NeoGAF user CertifiedFP has started a new campaign titled “Operation 422”, aimed at bringing Valkyria Chronicles 3 to the West. Rather than using a petition, the campaign aims to focus on social media to convince Sega to localize Valkyria Chronicles 3 on any non-PSP platform. You can read the campaign’s manifesto below. You can also find more details on the campaign and how to support it in the original NeoGAF thread.

Valkyria Chronicles 3 Collaboration in Phantasy Star Nova

Valkyria Chronicles cameos seem to be everywhere lately, with playable roles in Project X Zone and Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax. Sega has announced that Valkyria Chronicles III DLC content will also be in Phantasy Star Nova on December 24th, as reported by Gematsu. The costume is based on Riela Marcellis’s Valkyria form and can be used when creating a character.

Release dates for the previously announced tri-ACE content have also been confirmed. Leading the pack is the Resonance of Fate collaboration on December 4th, then Star Ocean IV on the 11th and Valkyrie Profile on 18th.

PlayStation Now Beta Includes Some Sega and Atlus Games, But No Valkyria Chronicles/Yakuza

The open beta for PlayStation Now, Sony’s new game streaming service, is now officially underway in the US and includes some Sega and Atlus games. Sega have three games available at the moment namely Sonic CD, Crazy Taxi and Alpha Protocol, while Atlus is offering people access to Catherine, their PS3 puzzle/adventure/horror game which they first released back in 2011. At one point Sega’s NiGHTS into Dreams was also available for the service, but right now it’s not part of the 100+ games available for the beta. Unfortunately that means Valkyria Chroncicles and the Yakuza games are also not available at the moment, something we hope will change in the future. It’s interesting to note that Alpha Protocol, unlike the other two games, is in fact not available as a digital download on PSN on the PS3. This means we may very well see Valkyria Chronicles and the Yakuza games become available on PlayStation Now as well, seeing how those aren’t available digitally either.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Heading to PS4 and Xbox One

While this news isn’t directly related to Sega, the fact that a highly requested PSP JRPG is being localized is something definitely worth noting. Today Square-Enix announced that an HD version of the PSP game Final Fantasy Type-0 will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One. Some might remember the #jrpgvita project started by Sony’s Shahid Ahmad, where he asked gamers which JRPG’s they wanted to see localized. Fans of various franchises responded en masse, including the Valkyria Chronicles fans. The PS Vita exclusive Tales of Hearts R was the most requested game, followed by Final Fantasy Type-0 and then Valkyria Chronicles 3.
