First, ardent fans of the original Valkyria Chronicles were annoyed that Sega was only bringing the sequel to the PSP.
Then, they get annoyed all over again when they learned that Sega wouldn't be localizing Valkyria Chronicles 3 . It has been a rough ride for supporters of the franchise that live outside of Japan, but never fear: An English translation is here!
Courtesy of a few diligent fans who translated the entire game from start to finish, the translation is now available for download. You can grab it here if you're so inclined, and remember that it'll work with the Extra Edition of the game, as well as on Vita. There are only a few small side areas and bonus missions that aren't translated, but even those will be turned into English thanks to another patch, scheduled for later. Or, you could just learn Japanese.
It's usually not a good idea to install custom firmware on your console but hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. Just bear in mind that it's a risk; don't say we didn't warn you.
