Ah, you are correct.

Hopefully though the sequel can match its predecessor in terms of quality?

And man, I really wish we'd get an online add-on or a sequel with online.

You and Stephen would probably stomp me into the ground several times, though. Would be fun anyhow.

I'd let you and Frent team up. It would make the fight fairer. Or I'd team up with you, if Frent would be ok with that.

The sequel is on PSP. It's being ported onto the PS3 later I believe.

If it's being ported later, then hallelujah. It's sad that I have actually considered buying a PSP specifically for VC2. And VC2 bums me out. The art looks terrible compared to the first game, the characters look even more like cliched anime characters than more relatively normal-looking anime characters, the new Valkyria has a snake-like whip sword weapon thing, everyone's in war school, and Selvaria comes back for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

The only thing that really has me excited about VC2 is the gameplay (with tons of new customizable classes), the fact that Sakimoto is still doing the soundtrack, and the prospect of continuing VC as a series, which I'm for.

I may be mistaken and the PSP version is just coming to the US later. I just know VC2 on PSP is already out in Japan.

Ah, yes that. The sequel is coming out later this month. It is in fact just the PSP version coming to the US.

And here I thought that this thread revival would have news of a VC3.

The only news I have on VC3 is that Vyse and Aika will return as playable characters. As far as whether it's brought stateside or not... No idea.

Hasn't VC3 been announced for a while and is on the PSP again?

Baaaaaaah, I would have bought those bloody entries, too.

Not gonna spoiler tag this stuff because the game's been out long enough that I think everyone who wanted to play it has played it. I've picked up Valkyria Chronicles II for the PSP and I've really been enjoying it. Every now and then, you'll get a cutscene where a little tidbit or two is revealed about old Squad 7.

Alicia and Welkin got married, assuming you got that far and beat the game. They had a kid and Alicia started selling bread. In Valkyria Chronicles II, they're both at Lanseal Academy, the setting of the game. Lanseal is basically an officers' school for the Army, not the Militia. Alicia still sells bread and Welkin's a teacher in a town not too far away.

Nancy Dufour, that perpetually ditzy nerd, apparently runs a sheep farm/yarn business. A few girls were oohing and ahhing over some of her yarn.

Nadine, the super awesome Darcsen Engineer, writes steamy romance novels.

More updates as I find them!

If you finished the first game, you remember that Jane, the sadistic Michael Jackson lookalike, took over the militia training from the one-eyed sergeant. Well, an update in Valkyria Chronicles II... The sergeant now heads up Lanseal's training. He says that the place where you trained in the first game is for both Army and Militia, and is called Amatriain. Said one of his recruits "went pro" and he left the place to her. "Jane's tougher than I am. I feel sorry for the poor guys at Amatriain."

Lion, I am disappoint. Then again not really. This, and flower on the battlefield are both maps you could easily lose in the first couple of times, though.

It was one of those things were I was like "Ahh, I'll get around to it." And never did. I'm gonna have to start over because I'll have absolutely no idea what I'm doing

Update on Rosie, courtesy of Valkyria Chronicles II: she's now a popular singer who tours Europa. The main character and a squad mate snuck out for one of her concerts. She's keeping the dream alive.

Was going through a rough patch tonight and decided I'd turn to my old squadmates for some nostalgia. Made me feel so good to see so many of them again: Vyse, Aika, Alex, Hannes, Largo, Rosie, Welkin, Alicia, Varrot. I played a few missions and sifted through the cutscenes. Two or three still make me tear up to this day. Cathartic stuff. Love this game so much.

Best maps I've continually played to this day is the Kloden Wildwood, both urban maps, the desert map, and the railway map on EX Hard.
Trench map was too Scout-centric imo.

I just pulled this game out a little while ago to really play it for once.

You know, if they put it on Vita, I'd be 200% more motivated to play it without stopping every hour.

I mean, I don't know how you feel on PSP games, but the second one is supposedly improved on everything its predecessor had to offer and from what I could tell has no ties with the characters of the first game.

Suffice to say its not the same thing obviously but who knows, maybe Sega will decide to do just that. VC is perfect for portable play.

I'm still surprised this is getting a PC version. Incredibly happy more people can play it. I hope they include the DLC or incorporate hard mode into it. Playing it on a higher difficulty made it feel completely different and took off some of the ridiculous dive in difficulty when you promote scouts to grenade launchers.

You would be incorrect sir. Not only does it directly follow the events of the first, but several characters of the first game show back up.

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU PUT A SEQUEL TO A GAME WITH DIRECT RELATIONS ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PLATFORM

At least BRIDGE the two, Jesus Christ.
