Okay, so PlayStation 3 owners and RPG fans were a little miffed when they learned that Valkyria Chronicles 2 would only be made for the PSP.
The original remains one of the most treasured games of the generation for many, so when they finally announced a sequel, the announcement that it would be exclusive to the PSP was regarded as bittersweet. But hey, there are PSP owners out there who deserve a shot at what should be one of the most refreshing, wonderfully addictive titles on the market, right? And according to a recent GameStop listing , VC2 will be on store shelves on June 30, 2010. Of course, Japan will get it earlier in the year but that's always to be expected, and the June 30 date does sound plausible. Sega said Western gamers would be getting this title about six months after it arrived in Japan. Perhaps you loved the first game but don't yet own a PSP; maybe this is the incentive you need to own one of those slick portable units…or maybe you'll just bide your time and wait for the unveiling of another Chronicles for the PS3. Thing is, most don't believe Sega will entirely abandon the core group of fans that made the original such a success.
Yeah, it's more of a cult success but sales weren't too bad in this country – especially after the re-release in the US earlier this year – so why shouldn't we deserve another title on the PS3?
