Valk-DLC15

A number of you have been asking about this on our weekend posts, and today SEGA has the answer. Beginning with tomorrow’s April 16th’s PlayStation Store update, gamers will be able to return to Gallia to fight some new EWII battles.

Here are details on the Valkyria Chronicles DLC, direct from SEGA:

  • Hard EX Mode – fight your way once again through the entire Imperial army, where the enemies are more lethal and your main tank Edelweiss is unavailable. You’ll have to be more strategic in order to overcome your opponents.
  • Edy’s Mission “Enter the Edy Detachment” – six members have been separated from Squad 7 and on their journey to reunite with their squad, they stumble upon a tiny village under attack by the Imperial Army. Play as Edy and command your outnumbered team to defend the small village from annihilation.
  • Selvaria’s Mission “Behind Her Blue Flame”– Taking place right after the outbreak of Gallian battle lines, you play as Johann, a young and meek engineer assigned to Selvaria’s troop. See the action as it unfolds behind enemy lines and see the war play out through the eyes of the enemy.

Selvaria and Crew 2

We don’t do reviews or really inject opinions into the news we carry on PlayStation.Blog, but if you haven’t tried Valkyria Chronicles, you really owe it to yourself to try out this beautiful, PS3-exclusive, strategy JRPG. There’s a demo available right now on the PlayStation Store.

Also, we’ve got a few more PSB-exclusive screens for you to look at here.

Well it’s about time but I wanted trophies. This is one of the most amazing PS3 games I’ve ever played and I’d like to go back to it sooner than later but not without trophy support.

Maybe I’ll finally begin to play this game. I got it for Christmas and I haven’t played much since…

Or maybe not.

Awesome NEWS.. one of the best games ever

+ Wollan on April 8th, 2009 at 10:36 am said:

I promise I will buy this game the day Sega releases a trophy patch.

There are more great games than I can afford to buy these days so having trophy support is crucial.

If this was the only title demanding a purchase from me then it would be an easy choice trophies or not. That’s not the case though. Cheers.

+ phinnv8 on April 8th, 2009 at 10:38 am said:

Sounds great and all but if they are working this hard on making this amazing game better (it’s a shame it’s sales have been so weak) then WHY NOT PATCH IN TROPHIES?

I’d love to see trophies in this game.

+ TheHater2 on April 8th, 2009 at 10:40 am said:

I am picking this game up tomorrow since it is only $30 dollars. Oh and when will we get trophies for this game?


15

+ jBat17 on April 8th, 2009 at 10:40 am said:

definitely picking up Edy and Selvaria’s Mission packs.. Edy is one cute babe.. and Selvaria has this big, huge, umm, mysterious personality..

and yeah, add trophies pleaase

+ phinnv8 on April 8th, 2009 at 10:41 am said:

The problem with the demo on the PSN store is it makes this game seem like there is no story and it’s just long battles. That’s not the case.

Also there should be trophies patched in along with DLC, that’s holding a lot of people back since people love trophies now.


17

+ INTVGene on April 8th, 2009 at 10:46 am said:

I guess no trophies yet. Sega PLEASE bring us a trophy patch!


18

+ tenplz on April 8th, 2009 at 10:46 am said:

I was just wondering, the other say while playing VC, if they were going to do something like this. Very glad to see it happening.

+ Craiji on April 8th, 2009 at 10:47 am said:

Got this game day 1.

Thank you for the DLC, please add trophies, so that all the trophy “people” will snap up this great game.

Also can we get some Yakuza PS3 love?… please?

+ WindedHero on April 8th, 2009 at 10:49 am said:

Trophies plz? I have this game but it is being neglected because of a lack of them.


21

+ Craazy on April 8th, 2009 at 10:50 am said:

I dunno……but I think people want trophies

+ skynidas on April 8th, 2009 at 10:51 am said:

TROPHIES PLEASE!!!! If you add trophies I will get this DLC with my eyes closed!!! Please :(

Gimme a Wendy pack!

Thanks for the DLC, here’s hoping it has voice acting!

Sega please ship more copies, its sold out in gamestop lmao


25

+ Ouren on April 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

@Everyone who cares too much about trophies…

Buy this game anyway. You’ll be glad you did.


26

+ AdamMadman on April 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

I would absolutely pick this game up if it had trophy support. But right now, my wallet is reserved for game companies who are willing to step up and provide what are now bare essentials in games.

+ StalkingSilence on April 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

Always love the surprise updates!
Also looking forward to the Rag Doll Kung Fu Costume Pack in LittleBigPlanet.

+ DarKaoZ on April 8th, 2009 at 10:54 am said:

YES!!! I was waiting for this, this is so damn great news!! I really enjoyed this game! And yeah, I would like to know if Trophies are possible at this stage of time, I mean… I would love to get Trophies for this game, I might even try to get the Platinum since I really loved the game.

So do you guys know if its possible to get Trophies for this excellent game?

+ Shin-Ra on April 8th, 2009 at 10:54 am said:

Yakuza 3 pleeeeeease!

+ Gringo234 on April 8th, 2009 at 10:55 am said:

Are trophies coming out for this game after this DLC or during the DLC release?


31

+ davivman on April 8th, 2009 at 10:59 am said:

Yes, I will definately be getting this DLC. I echo the author of this post in saying that Valkyria Chronicles is a magnificent and beautiful game. I also recently heard that the game is on sale at Gamestop for only 30 bucks.


32

+ Jon_Mclane on April 8th, 2009 at 11:00 am said:

Been waiting for this since I beat the game a few months ago, it’s a shame no one from sega came to give us the news though


33

+ Tezasaurus on April 8th, 2009 at 11:00 am said:

This game is fantastic and gorgeous; I will pick up the DLC, but PLEASE ADD TROPHIES :(


34

+ wickedkae on April 8th, 2009 at 11:01 am said:

still no trophies huh? makes it hard to want to spend money on this game.


35

+ TheHater2 on April 8th, 2009 at 11:01 am said:

@29 Shin-Ra
I agree. Please release Yakuza here in the States


36

+ SlashZaku on April 8th, 2009 at 11:03 am said:

Will definitely purchase all 3. Kudos to SEGA for bringing such a great RPG/title exclusively to the PS3.


37

+ zetamilk on April 8th, 2009 at 11:05 am said:

Finally. Thank you, Sega.


38

+ EktorOni on April 8th, 2009 at 11:08 am said:

I would love Sega to add TROPHIES to this game. I played the demo and liked it…implement TROPHIES and I’ll definitely buy it.

+ evaunit6 on April 8th, 2009 at 11:11 am said:

It doesn’t get any better than this…this announcement made my day. Like an early Christmas, it will be!!!!!

And for all those who are holding out for trophies before playing VC, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!


40

+ VofEscaflowne on April 8th, 2009 at 11:12 am said:

Ridiculous that so many people are passing on this gem of a game because it lacks trophies. Where’s the logic in that? Do you buy crap games just because it has trophy support?


41

+ angelcoma on April 8th, 2009 at 11:12 am said:

EktrOni, don’t buy it, go buy some generic EA game.

Tomorrow is my birthday, seems like Sony is making me broke already. Flock, Ragdoll and this!


43

+ Xoonaka on April 8th, 2009 at 11:13 am said:

I am very excited for this news!! This was one of my favorite 2008 games, good to see the DLC finally come out over here.

Sega should definitely do some sort of spiritual sequel to this. Doesn’t necessarily need to be a direct one, same characters and all… but I would love to have this art style and these gameplay mechanics carried over into more games!

…sorry the sales were less then spectacular. It was a pretty busy holiday season, you know?


44

+ DanielMeier on April 8th, 2009 at 11:17 am said:

Sad to see so many people not buying this game cause there are no trophies. What on earth did you people do when games had no achievements or trophies?

What happend to playing games for the game sake.


45

+ WFMMK on April 8th, 2009 at 11:20 am said:

I’ve been wanting to buy this for a long time now but I will buy this as soon as they add trophies.

Article title says “soon” but the page name says “tomorrow” – any clarification?

How about those neat LittleBigPlanet costumes that leaked a while back? I’d love to hear something on those! :)

“I would absolutely pick this game up if it had trophy support. But right now, my wallet is reserved for game companies who are willing to step up and provide what are now bare essentials in games.”

Are you serious? This game has plenty. I personally have no interest in the trophy system, just seems like a method of bragging rights for…some people.
