Mission 07 - Operation: Firestorm

Attention Gallians. This is General J.R of the Gallian Liberation Front. I have a mission for you to help strengthen the chances of localization. This will be an ongoing mission so it is not specified to a particular date but will commence as soon as you read this brief. Recent reports have stated that there is not much activity going on within the community to identify a significant demand to warrant localization of Valkyria Chronicles 3: this has been identified as a key issue especially when brought to light after a certain news article was published (link below). We know not yet the status of Sega or their aims for localization at this moment but we have decided to place our hopes on our allies who may help to localize this game: by allies I mean 3rd party publishers (including Atlus, Aksys Games and NIS America)

While we are still waiting for a reply from said publishers we have decided to attempt to bring back the hype and demand for Valkyria Chronicles 3 that was so fearlessly  displayed on the Sega Forums to their forums. We want to display this passion that the fans wish to see the 3rd game of this wonderful series be brought to the shores of the west. For that WE NEED YOU!
Here is your mission. We require you to be active on the following forums to help to display a demand for this franchise so big that the publishers will not be able to turn a blind eye. We want Valkyria Chronicles 3 to be the most talked about topic for the months to come. All you have to do is be active on the forums. This may require you start threads about various aspects of Valkyria Chronicles or contribute to other threads as well: anything as long as it keeps the forums active. If you have not an account already then please sign up. Again we greatly emphasize the importance of the participation of everyone on this mission. Let us show our spirit for the localization of Valkyria Chronicles 3.

You have your orders.
Gallian Liberation Front, MOVE OUT!

NIS America Forums:

(Note this list may be updated later on with forums from other potential 3rd party publishers.)

New Approach, New tactics.

ATTENTION SOLDIERS - We have an announcement to make. We have had many soldiers asking how we are going to approach localization in spite of the recent Sega layoffs and restructure and I can at least reveal for now what we are planning to do. We believe that bombarding Sega with a shrapnel of letters showing our support would not be the ideal tactic at this time, purely because Sega's attention will be focused on more pressing matters at this time.

Rather we have decided to reach new allies and ask for their assistance in the localization of Valkyria Chronicles 3 in the West: these allies are 3rd party publishers. We believe that the conditions are right for 3rd party publishers to take the reigns of localization and deliver us this beautiful game. What we intend to do is target a number of publishing companies and though a level of support from the community and a package (From the GLF) containing Valkyria Chronicles 3 content) attempt to convince them why this game should be localized. We believe that providing them with a level of understanding of why this game is so great and then showering them with support from the consumers would only strengthen our influence. If anyone has seen Operation Rainfall's new direction to localization then you will be familiar with our tactic>

This may be our most ambitious mission ever but with enough support and help from the community we may be able to achieve something great and we'd love for you to be a part of it.

(Note - we are still in the stages of planning this but be advised will be doing our best to get this operation up and running as soon as possible. If you have any recommendations that you would like to make on how we can approach or execute this plan more effectively either shout us a post, e-mail us or comment on the post on our blog. the choice is yours.)

Lotte's Big Scoop #8

Did you know that Gallian Tanks are often named after types of plant? For example, Edelweiss is a white mountain flower, Shamrock is a three-leafed clover and Narcissus (Audrey Garssenarl's personal tank in VC3) is a genus of hardy spring flower. On the contrary, Imperial tanks are named after mammals, e.g. Batomys, Schakal (German for Jackal, Lydia's tank in VC3), Marmota, Equus, Dromedarius, Echidna, etc.

On the side note, Squad 422's tank is simply named Nameless.

Lotte's Big Scoop #7

Although Isara Gunther, the late sister of EWII hero Welkin Gunther was in fact the first person recorded to have invented a workable flying machines, it appears that the Gallians have made no real progress in development of flight technology since the initial model dubbed "ISARA". Other accounts of flying technology were the sights of the GRA blimp during the invasion of Lanseal Academy,

T-shirts - Ambitious Project updarte

J.R - For all who have been following us during our endeavours to create unique uniforms for everyone to wear, you will know we had a big ambitious project for our next design which involved an original piece of artwork by Liam Razo with Imca & Riela in a "I WANT YOU FOR THE GALLIAN LIBERATION FRONT" picture on the front of the shirt while the Squad 422 Emblem would also be placed on the back of our shirt.

However if you haven't already guessed the Character & Insignia rights both belong to Sega. Not wanting to tarnish relations with Sega and create huge legal battles, I decided to contact Sega to ask them for permission. However since then I have not gotten a reply. What does that mean? Well ultimately it means we cannot create these T-shirts for sale since doing so would be illegal and ultimately cause friction between Sega and the GLF.

Does that mean we've dropped the project? NO. While we cannot official sell these t-shirts until further notice by Sega, we will be completing the design for these t-shirts. Well your probably wondering "how do you get one of these unique & stylish t-shirts?". Well lets just say we now have a sufficient prize to offer in our competitions. For those that remember, we previously held an art competition with the chance to join in on our podcast on the GLF however the offer was not inciting enough and we only had 4 participants. I believe now our prize now will be substantial enough to gather more participants on our competitions. We estimate the final design will be ready around April the 15th and we will be hosting a competition strait after its release for a chance to earn this. Meanwhile I hope everyone gets ready and excited for your chance to win one.

Also if their are concerns about winners being in locations that spreadshirt does not ship to, please don't worry. I will personally buy and ship the product to your address if spreadshirt doesn't cover your area for shipping. We will make sure that all winners receive the award they have rightful earned.

Note: I want to thank Markov, the leader of Operation Rainfall, for providing me with advice in regards to selling merchandise. I really appreciate his willingness to help another leader out.
