Last week it was my sad duty to report that Sega currently has no plans to sell Valkyria Chronicles III outside of Japan, leaving the rest of the world with one less excellent PSP title for their libraries. While those plans haven’t changed, the folks at DualShockers tracked down Sega’s associate brand manager Aaron Webber at this past weekend’s New York Comic Con, where he offered VC fans some hope.
Aware that the site had started a respectably-sized petition group called the Gallian Liberation Front, Webber said: “The best I can say right now is ‘Don’t give up, keep trying’, to all those guys out there, keep growing the cause, and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
DualShockers have also thought of different ways that VC3 can reach other territories, either via an HD release on PSN or otherwise, to which Webber offered: “Keep at it, you never know what can happen in the future. It’s very open ended.”
A video of the interview is embedded below:
Enthusiastic fan support has brought over several Yakuza releases on the PS3, so hopefully Sega has some room in their hearts to bring Valkyria Chronicles III over.
