I’m a tremendous fan of Valkyria Chronicles, and I poured many hours into the game on PS3. Sega seems to be heavily suggesting that we’ll be seeing it on the PS4 in the U.S., which would be a wonderful opportunity to revisit the game. My guess is that we’ll see a digital release of the game at the very least, and Sega will use those sales numbers to determine whether or not it's worth releasing Valkyria Chronicles 4 here as well.
