    I don't see the point in transforming a semi popular srpg game into a jrpg game.Now the game has to compete with the likes of persona,dragon quest and other generic jrpg series,which will probably outsell it.
    And even if they are banking on pc sales they are still gonna have to compete with other jrpg games on steam(which are rising in numbers).
    This just seems like another brain dead sega move which will put another nail in their coffin.

    An interesting detail from the VC remaster is that it will contain a demo of Azure Revolution and that SEGA will be taking feedback from people who played it.

    They had a very good art style in VC 1. I don't mean the horrible white borders around the edge of the screen, or the shitty line haze on everything, but the way characters were drawn, their clothes etc. It made the game feel like one of the more mature Ghibli amines instead of made-for-TV fodder.

    It would be a shame for them to throw all that away.

    Man, why won't they bring back Raita? Those designs look generic as fuck.

    Is there any franchise left under sega that they HAVEN'T completely driven into the ground yet? I already see red flags for SMT with the direct sequel to SMT4 that nobody asked for (Strange Journey was and still is the unofficial SMT4).

    The yakuza series is doing fine even though sega doesn't give a damn about it.

    Jesus, this thing looks just so damn unappealing, in almost every possible way. I shan't shed a single tear if this never gets released in teh West!

    Seems like the idea behind VC's combat was just too good for this world.

    FWIW, they call this a new "Revolution" series separated from "Battlefield" (VC) series. Hope the VC remaster is a sign for a new turn-based VC entry in the future.

    Yakuza series is awesome because it allows to play pachinko. (And golf, and other stuff.)

    If it's not turn-based, then what's the point of this game? Why slander the Valkyria IP with this JRPG shit?

    Sega way of thinking:
    1)Jrpgs make a lot of money
    2)transform popular ip into a jrpg
    3)????????
    4)Profit

    There is no way a JRPG will have more waifus than VC.

    This is the same publisher that released Resonance of Fate around the time two juggernauts came out -- FFXIII and God of War 3. I love a lot of the stuff that SEGA puts out, but they always make baffling decisions. We'll be lucky if we ever get a sequel to Binary Domain.

    I heard they were making a new VC game, I got hyped.

    I see this news, I die inside.

    When will Sega stop ruining their franchises with the force of a thousand sonic games?
