Fans of Valkyria Chronicles can now inspect in English the character and vehicle designs which made the franchise such a success (if a succession of PSP “sequels” can be considered as such), thanks to the recent publication of the Valkyria Chronicle Design Archive – replete with detailed treatment of each character’s swimwear…

    For the record I have the book, and there's only 5 pages worth of swimsuits/ anything close to ero in 400 total pages.

    This article definitely exaggerates the amount of ero content in the book. Its more focused on welkin and alicia concepts and the majority of the book is tank/weapon/geography/history

    Ah, reminders of a great game. It's a shame they never made a sequel or anime.

    Ah...Raita has released another beauty~

    Whether he is doing official art of "Valkyria Chronicles" or doing his the 7th installment of his hentai-harem series, "Zettai Shoujo - Mahou Shoujo" (all 7 doujins are English-translated now, by the way), he never fails to impress me~

    That said, certain females in both his "Valkyria Chronicles" and "Zettai Shoujo - Mahou Shoujo" series has similar appearances and personality...

    In fact, a certain busty valkyrie goddess from the former has inspired several characters in the latter's hentai doujin series~

    Thank you Raita for breathing life into the wakilicious valkyrie that is Selvaria Bles!!!

    I'm buying this just for her...

    There are 2 sequels on the PSP and an anime came out a few years ago.

    He's clearly (and rightly so) just denying that they ever existed, because they sucked.

    What was wrong with the Anime? It basically followed the game's story exactly except for a few things.

    This, plus FFTactics are probably the 2 best console strategy games i've played.

    They didn't suck. Judged on their own they are solid works, it's just that they're nowhere near as good as the PS3 game.

    In fact, the combat system in Valkyria 2 made many improvements over the original. If only it was with PS3 graphics and without the "academy" setting...

    I didn't mind the racism and their "this is not world war II, these are not jews, this is not hitler in a super tank" take on things. It was everyone going super sayian towards the end that finally broke the deal for me.
    Trying to make you care for characters that were poorly developed just came of as a cheap when they started to cull the casting herd.
    Outside of those two issues, it was fairly average.

    Nah, the academy setting really didnt take much away from me personally. I mean at first you're thinking "aww shit school setting with all it's cliches etc..." But that all goes out the crapper once the story starts getting more serious as the months in-game pass by. It truly did get better for me anyway.

    now what REALLY sucks... is that we aren't getting part 3 in the U.S. in the foreseeable future...

    Valkyria Chronicles is a wonderful game, but, it sold poorly, sadly. Sega (or should I say, SAMMY) these days is not the company it once was, after all, look at how they have shafted Yu Suzuki. It is likely that the move to PSP was imposed by Sega for financial reasons, based on VC's sales.
    Had VC sold well enough, Sega would likely have made a sequel on PS3. Why no Valkyria Chronicles sequel on PS3? Same reason there's no Shenmue 3.
    Reiko Kodama would like to make Skies of Arcadia 2 or Phantasy Star V, but Sega are not interested; they are these days mainly a publisher and seem to be giving more funding to external developers than their own internal teams.

    That said, I'm pleasantly surprised at the art book, given how Sega has never given us a Shenmue, Panzer Dragoon, or Skies of Arcadia artbook.

    Racism angel? Sounds like an intriguing new character.

    Let's be reasonable,

    The voters on MyAnimeList gave it 7.8, Anime-Planet gave it 4/5 & AnimeNewsNetwork gave it 7.5.

    You may have thought it sucked but the anime kingdom disagrees with you.

    the game had that racism angel, im half way through it, for various reasons, but it was never an all encompassing thing.

    the anime, correct me if im wrong, took the racism that was on 5, took a permanent marker, and wrote in 11, and put the knob to there. and that was 1 episode and i gave up because that whole tone would at least be there for 6 episodes.

    and the psp games, haven't played to much of it, but holy shit does it feel like a different game. its not bad, but damnit do you miss out on allot due to less buttons and 1 less analogue stick.

    Oi! XSEED Games expressed interest in localizing Valkyria Chronicles 3. Nothing confirmed, but they said that they'd "look into it". Show support on their forums and perhaps we'll be able to see it localized. The suggestion thread already has more replies and views than any other game that had been suggested.

    I have Valkyria 2 in Japanese but didn't know they have in English. I should look for this now. Their content is good for game concept development and character design.
