Too many gamers overlooked it last year but thanks to the recently released DLC and positive word-of-mouth, Valkyria Chronicles is suddenly a very hot item…in both Japan and the US!
As reported over at Sega's blog and citing sales numbers provided by Gamasutra, the excellent strategy/RPG sits at #5 on the North American charts this week, and it's all the way up at #1 in Japan. Next week is also shaping up nicely, as Chronicles is ranked #3 in PlayStation 3 sales in the Land of the Rising Sun and holding tight to that #5 spot in the US. It's also good to know that each of the newly available downloadable content packs are also popular, and if you haven't yet had the pleasure, you can pick up this singularly appealing title at Amazon.com this week for only $39.79! Really, if you're a PS3 owner and you have even the slightest interest in this genre, you owe it to yourself to add Valkyria Chronicles to your library. You won't regret it; there's a damn good reason why word is spreading: the vast majority of gamers have nothing but good things to say about it, and so many people just can't be wrong!
Remember, this game dropped in November, during a time when many huge blockbuster titles were already on store shelves. It was just too much to handle at the time, but quality won't be denied. Truth!
