Valkyria Chronicles originally released in 2008, and immediately became an early favorite of the PS3’s library. A PSP sequel was published in early 2010, but the series’ final game – Valkyria Chronicles 3 – has yet to make its way overseas. Today’s announcement continues what seems like a trend of various large Japanese publishers/developers porting many of their older titles to PC – some examples of which being Square-Enix’s recent Final Fantasy XIII trilogy port; or XSEED Games’ re-release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky’s PC version for the west.
Regardless of whether or not this trend will continue – jRPG fans on PC continue to get new opportunities to support the Japanese gaming industry on PC. We will update you with more information on the recently announced port as it comes in.
