PC Valkyria Chronicles Includes DLC; Preorders Underway

Following hints and a confirmation earlier this week that a PC edition of Valkyria Chronicles is in the works, SEGA announces details on their plans to bring this strategic RPG to Windows. They say it should be available for preorder soon if not already through various digital distributors, and that it will include all of the DLC release for the PS3 edition. Here's word:
In the words of series’ favorite, Aika Thompson, “we’re just getting warmed up!” If you saw the news on twitter on Monday night, which saw ‘Valkyria Chronicles™’ trending worldwide, you’ll know that some eagle-eyed reporters spotted Valkyria Chronicles listed for PC on PEGI’s website. Well, we were going to tell you all about it tomorrow, but we have all the details for pre-ordering and content available at launch right here, right now.

In Valkyria Chronicles, for those who don’t know, players embark on an epic adventure through beautiful environments and battle legions of troops to save the small country of Gallia from total destruction. Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe on the verge of a great war. The game follows Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation’s 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who is intent on unifying the continent under its power. The emergence of the “Valkyria”- an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends, turns the tide of the war and the Federation’s ability to win and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.

This Strategy RPG was a critical success, garnering a whopping 86% on Metacritic and even earned a Guinness World Record in 2010 for being the best Strategy RPG on PS3. Valkyria Chronicles will launch for Windows PC via Digital Download on November 11, 2014 and will come bundled with all the DLC that was available for the original PlayStation 3 game including:

  • Hard EX Mode (harder versions of skirmish missions in the main game)
  • Edy’s Mission “Enter the Edy Detachment” (a side story campaign)
  • Selveria’s Mission “Behind Her Blue Flame” (a side story campaign)
  • Challenge of the Edy Detachment (six challenge missions)

So you can pre-order now and pick up this award winning, critically acclaimed strategy RPG that’s so good it announced itself, for £14.99/€19.99/$19.99 from selected digital retail partners.

Why would you want the PSP sequel on the PC? It was a completely different game, due to the nature of the PSP.
I am just finishing up the PSP sequel (the first one, they made a second that was Japan-only), and the only thing that is really inferior is the control limitations (mainly a single analog stick which is mostly moot playing it on the Vita), graphics, and story. The gameplay was actually improved and upgrading classes was more meaningful and fun.

I don't know how most PSP games were developed, but if the devs scaled down decent-sized textures for the PSP, a HD upgrade could look alright on PC. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD looked pretty decent on the PS3, it was no MGS4, but it was still serviceable.

Wasn't it originally going to be on PC then switched to PS3? I remember seeing a pre-view of this on Edge and the platform was PC than being so disappointed it was going to be on PS3 only????

I watched the anime a while back and thought it was pretty decent.

Not sure how I feel about playing the game now. Hmmm...

Sega is usually pretty good with ports so I'm not overly concerned.

It's been forever since I played this since I'm more of a PC gamer, but I recall this being an absolutely fantastic game! The gameplay was pretty dramatically different than anything I had played before.

If you haven't played it for the PS3, and like turn-based games, I would definitely recommend trying this one out!

Will the port be decent though is the question.

20 bucks? Hm. Even with a bad port that is pretty tempting...

It's a good game despite some overly rigid mission designs. The story is a bit simplistic but the themes are relatable enough. Glad to see it coming out on the PC, hopefully Sega doesn't mangle the port too badly.
