The hit turn based PlayStation 3 exclusive strategy game, Valkyria Chronicles, is now available on PC via Steam, and apparently, in a dramatic break from tradition as far as belated PC ports of hit Japanese console games go, it is actually a very well done port, and one that does full justice to the gorgeous art and aesthetics of the original game.
Sega, it seems, is very happy with how well the game has performed. “During its first 24 hours on sale, blew all forecasts and predictions out of the water. The award-winning Strategy RPG, originally released in 2008 for PlayStation 3, forced its way to the top of the Steam download charts, beating a host of brand new games to reach number one,” Sega said.
Sega Europe’s senior VP of commercial publishing John Clark added: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans for their support in the phenomenal success of this launch. We’re also delighted at the response from the Steam community which indicates that newcomers to the series are finding it as enchanting and engaging as those who have played it before.”
This will all be music to the ears of all those who have been relentlessly campaigning for Sega to bring over ports of their popular console games to PC. Other games as part of this campaign are Vanquish and Virtua Fighter.
You can now go ahead and check the game out on Steam for yourself. And remember to stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage.
