Valkyria Chronicles Gets Re-Release In Japan

Probably one of the most under-appreciated titles in 2008 – it even won many “Most Overlooked” Awards – it makes sense that the title would be getting a re-release in the part of the world that RPGs are most dominant. After all, there were many reports that the game was not selling well in North America.

Now, however, it looks like Sega is scheduling a budgeted re-release of Valkyria Chronicles in Japan on March 5, and the game will include the Edie Nelson mission(s), which is currently only available via download on the Japanese PlayStation Store. The price has also dropped down to 3,990 yen, which is just about $44 U.S, give or take.

There is no word on if the title will re-release in North America, but there is a strong change that they will benefit from such a move. This will also help the popularity of the title in Japan, but this time let hope that they advertise the game better.
