It won our "Most Overlooked" award in 2008 and it remains one of the most beloved titles of the generation so far…well, so far as RPG/strategy aficionados are concerned.
Now, you may remember when Sega promised something new for Gallia fans in North America, and while some were hoping for the announcement of a sequel, most banked on the possibility of new downloadable content. If you were of that majority, you have been proven correct: according to Kotaku , we will soon have three separate DLC packs! We'll get two brand new missions plus a Hard EX mode; of the extra missions, Edy's "Enter the Edy Detachment" "follows a group of six Gallia soldiers as they seek to rescue a village under siege by the Imperials." Selvaria's "Behind Her Blue Flame" switches things up a bit, as you're placed into the role of an Imperial engineer by the name of Johann. Obviously, this adds a good bit of variety as players will now be able to see some of the engaging storyline from the enemy's point of view. As for Hard EX mode, we figure it needs little explanation. We're not sure when these packs are coming but for now, it's enough to know that they are, in fact, on the way. If we had to guess, we'd expect this set of DLC to become available on the Store some time later this month…just don't quote us on that.
If you haven't yet taken Valkyria Chronicles for a test drive and you're a fan of the RPG/strategy genre, we strongly suggest giving it a try. It's both unique and entertaining, and it's easily one of the best titles on the PlayStation 3. Seriously, don't miss out!
