It’s a PSP game, and here is its localized title: Valkyria Chronicles 2: The Gallia Royal Military Academy.
Announced in the newest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu, the game is set in 1937, two years after the first game. Cadets from the Gallia Royal Military Academy are sent to suppress an insurrection in the southern part of in-game country Gallia.
The game’s central concept is contrasting the world of the military academy with war. Valkyria Chronicles 2 is due out this winter in Japan.
As a huge fan of the first game, I should be happy about this – right? Wrong. I don’t have a PSP, and have absolutely no intention of getting one. First off, I can’t waste the money. And second, I feel like I’ve outgrown handheld game systems… oh, around ten years ago. So pass. Damn, Valkyria is not only my favorite PS3 game, it’s easily my favorite game in a long time.
Nice to see an epic game get a sequel, but I guess I’ll never play it. 😦
