Valkyria Chronicles Remastered confirmed for NA/EU

tn.jsp

I know a lot of Fire Emblem fans read this blog (and I am quite the big fan of Fire Emblem), so I wanted to make a brief post to spread awareness regarding Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. I feel like there is a crossover in the two fan bases, probably due to the SRPG nature among other things.

The game is an enhanced version of the original Valkyria Chronicles which came out in 2008 for the PS3. That’s not too long ago and it’s pretty easy to find for cheap on the PS3 even now. But considering it’s slated to be cheaper than a usual PS4 game and includes all the DLC, I highly recommend it to anyone who has not played it to try it out there. There’s even a limited edition if you pre-order. You can read more about the whole sales pitch and such on the official website.

It’s available on the PC, too, and has been since last year. It’s up for cheap on Steam, and often gets as cheap as 5 USD during sales.

It is a personal favorite of mine. See if it interests you, too! If you have any questions on the game and such, I don’t mind answering them for you. Even if I love the game a lot, I will not hesitate to present downsides to it too. It’s not my nature to sell what I like, but to try and convey things as they are (like with Fire Emblem games). : )

Valkyria: Azure Revolution Famitsu Info Translations 11/18 (1)

I decided to translate information from Famitsu’s feature on the newly announced Valkyria: Azure Revolution. The game is the latest in the Valkyria series of games. There is information about a PS4 remaster of the first game (originally on PS3), as well as an interview that I hope to translate and cover later.

Due to time constraints, I did not apply them to the original scans, but I still provide the scans themselves below!

All of this is done on my free time and is rather time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work, and I am unemployed… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. Any amount (no matter how small) is much appreciated and helps me keep going on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy the end results of my work!

Along with that, Gematsu already has tidbits translated (from other Japanese sites such as Hachima) for those who are interested. A Valkyria Chronicles remaster (originally a PS3 game) will be coming to PS4 as well on February 10th in Japan, though no information in the west.

Valkyria Chronicles: “A Love Passed On”/”Succeeded Wish” (EN/JP) Lyrics Comparison

Today’s post compares the original “Succeeded Wish” (受け継がれる想い Uketsugareru Omoi) to the officially localized version, “A Love Passed On.”

The first translation is my own that I translated a few posts ago. It is a literal translation from the Japanese lyrics. The localized lyrics follow. I add some notes at the bottom.
