First of all, the demo for Valkyria Chronicles 2 is available now on the PSN. Secondly, if enough fans keep asking, it might just come to the PlayStation 3.
Many fans of the original were disappointed to learn that the sequel would only be made for the PSP, but there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. After announcing the aforementioned demo over at the PlayStation Blog , Sega of America Assistant Community Manager Aaron Webber answered a few questions in the Comments below the update. Now, at first, Webber makes it clear that VC was a PS3 exclusive and VCII is a PSP exclusive, and there are currently no plans to change that. But after multiple requests to make it happen, he added the following:
"I’ve passed on for a long time now that fans would love to see it, as shown by the many comments asking for it. It isn’t a decision I can make personally, but I’ve pushed as many people as possible to let them know of the support out there for it."
Well, that's something, at least. Oh, and Webber also passed along the request for a new VC Trophy patch, which isn't on the horizon but with the power of the fans…who knows? Valkyria Chronicles 2 will hit store shelves in the US on August 31 but will we eventually see it grace the PS3 (via the PSN) at some point? We know many ardent followers of the original who don't own PSPs want it to happen, so we'll keep you updated.
