Valkyria Chronicles very soon

This is 戦場のヴァルキュリア, or Valkyria Chronicles. I am eagerly awaiting this strategic RPG for the PS3, out in mere days (the 24th). Details on the actual gameplay seem to have taken a backseat to shots of the stunning cutscenes and beautiful character designs. The tanks are also quite nice… Here are some shots of the trailer I took; I will doubtless post a more detailed look after the release.

The quality of animation is really stunning, but it seems slightly suspect that so little attention is paid to the battle aspects, which are the heart of any SRPG. In their defence, it is probably a wise enough move, marketing wise.

Obviously an antagonist.

Perhaps the biggest PS3 release until the new Soul Calibur and Metal Gear titles? Certainly seems to be the biggest RPG until the new Final Fantasy title, which looks set to sell an awful lot of PS3s.

    This game is seriously addicting, when I first downloaded the demo, I got addicted, repeatingly play the skirmish mode. Though the AI was seriously stupid in the demo, it got more challenging when I got the game, which was kind of a relief for me since I thought the game was gonna be as easy.
