Happy New Year form the Valkyria 3 development team

Click to enlarge.

The Senjou no Valkyria 3 development team has posted this image some moments ago in the official blog to wish us a Happy New Year. I find pretty interesting, no only that they care to do this but they used the first image they used to tease Senjou no Valkyria 3 when the official site didn't exist and the website was just a misterious .

Happy New Year from me too, to all Valkyria fans and specially to all of you that visit this humble blog, let's hope the new year bring us good news for our beloved franchise.

Playing Senjou no Valkyria 3 on PSVITA

Thanks to the guys from the Japanese board  2ch, we have some images of Senjou no Valkyria 3 E2 running on PSVISTA.

This is a comparison image between the game running on PSP 3000 (top) and PSVITA (bottom). There is a slight change in the colours when you play on PSVITA but this common issue with every PSP game that is played on PSVITA. So far there is no proper images available of the actual game but, comparisons done with games like Monster Hunter shows that this change in th colours make the PSP games to look better on PSVITA, we can expect the same for the Valkyria games.

Next we have a closer look on how the Japanese font looks at PSVITA and it seems that is a little messed up, this could be because the screen resolution on PSVITA is bigger than the PSP (960 × 544 vs 480 × 272). Click on every image to enlarge.

Some Valkyria Chronicles 2 Artwork

 Click to enlarge.

I found this laying around the internet, they look like they are scanned from the Senjou no Valkyria 2 World Artworks book, they were originally preorder telephone cards for Senjou no Valkyria 2 in Japan, one for the Animate retailer and the other one for the Amiami retailer. The one on the left is RAITA's work.

The images are large, save them directly to your PC.

A Cold Night in Ghirlandaio

Click to enlarge.

I found this comic strip in Pixiv and it make me laugh so hard that I decide to post it here. The author is ashiat.
The comic strip makes more sense if you have played the DLC episode "Behind Her Blue Flame" from Valkyria Chronicles or watched the anime.

Senjou no Valkyria 3 EXTRA EDITION (More about the sales)

Click to enlarge.

Ok, so now we have the sales chart for week 47 of 2011 that goes from November 21 to November 27, so far nothing new, but this time we have thanks to Media Create the top 50 selling games, sadly they only provide sales numbers for the top 20.

As you can see in the image below, Senjou no Valkyria 3 EXTRA EDITION debuted at rank #28.

Nuff said!!

Senjou no Valkyria 3 fails to rank in the top 20 most selling games

Click to enlarge.

The Japanese sales chart for week 47 of 2011 that goes from November 21 to November 27 has been published today and it seems that Senjou no Valkyria 3 EXTRA EDITION has failed to enter the top 20 most selling games for that week.

The last game on the chart (#20) is Sengoku Basara 3: Utage for the PS3 and has sold 13.233 units in that week, this means that the EXTRA EDITION has sold less than that. Also the reprint of Senjou No Valkyria 2 (Sega the Best ) that was released the same day (November 23) failed to enter the rank too, but this is normal, this is the second reprint of the budget version of the game, most of the people already have it.

To summarize all this information, Senjou no Valkyria 3 EXTRA EDITION has sold less than 13.233 units in 5 days. In Japan, in most of the cases, the first week is when the games sold the most, so is unlikely that we will see the game in the next chart.

The original release sold in his first 10 weeks, 149,327 units (official numbers), unofficial sources inform that the sales till this date rise to 172,661 units.

Even if this is only speculation by my part, between the game, toys, the anime and other stuff, I'm 100% sure that the game was a success for Sega. But I expected better numbers for the EXTRA EDITION, maybe is too expensive?, maybe it's too soon to release this kind of version? (lest than 12 months from the original release).
