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.)

  1. Glad to see some action is being taken. :) I want to support this game any way I can. Hopefully one of the publishers see the love of VC from the community and work with Sega to at lest get it on PSN. One of the publisher I think you guys should contact is Gaijinworks/MonkeyPaw seeing how they seem interested in bringing Japanese PSP games to the rest of the world.
