    A few months ago Sega West Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber reportedly said that the publisher wasn’t planning any more PSP releases in the west. This marked the start of a sad period for the fans of the Valkyria Chronicles series, as it excluded the possibility of a localization of Valkyria Chronicles III on this side of the Pacific Ocean. To make things worse a few days ago Gamespot reported about an interview to Sega’s team manager of the console sales’ team Hiroshi Seno, that confirmed the bad news, saying that Sega wasn’t planning to bring the beautiful JRPG to the West.

    As you probably already know and as you can see by looking at the side bar, here at DualShockers we support the Gallian Liberation Front, a group formed to promote and encourage the localization of Valkyria Chronicles III in the west. But words of support are cheap, so we decided to try something more solid.

    On friday we met with the Gallian Liberation Front‘s Executive Vice Adminstrator Ashik “Eximius Sorel” Ittehad and he put in our hands (in a quite classy black briefcase) a printed copy of the online petition that the group is using to spearhead the cause. More than 2,000 signatures in support of a niche title are quite an impressive number.

    Then, On Saturday, we tracked down Sega’s Aaron Webber himself at New York Comic Con in order to deliver the package and ask him about Valkyria Chronicles III just again.

    Turns out that not only Webber already knew about the cause of the Gallian Liberation Front, he also revealed that he’s a fan, but more importantly, he had something to say that will make the fans of Valkyria Chronicle series smile after the sequence of bad news of the past few months. You can see the full interview embedded below.

    Here's to hoping this get's an English release.

    I hope they skip the dubbing though. It'll save time, costs and make many people happy

    Please, re-think this more. Kindly bring it to our shores. I would pick this up legally.
