The new handheld game takes place two years after the events of the first Valkyria Chronicles, when Gallia is plunged into civil war when a group of rebels — called Gallian Revolutionary Army — rise up against the government. Ain't reconstruction the proverbial bitch?
I was actually worried we wouldn't get the game in the US for quite a while. Valkyria Chronicles was a darling of the critics (including myself), but I wondered if it sold well enough to the American PlayStation 3 audience to justify bringing over the sequel. Guess the answer is yes.
