Sega potentially teases Valkyria Chronicles III, VCII reviews rounded-up

Oh boy.

Sega’s opened up a teaser site for something which looks a lot like Valkyria Chronicles III. The site has something “not to be opened till 9.16″.

Funnily enough, that just so happens to be the first day of Tokyo Game Show. Who would have thunk it.

It was discovered last week the publisher had registered the URL “valkyria3″.

We’ll email Sega on it, but we really do hope this is a real thing: the original VC on PS3, which introduced a combined mix of strategy and real-time combat, was an amazing game.

And it just so happens Valkyria Chronicles II releases in the west this week. So far, consensus seems to be, “Buy me, please.”

Round-up of the reviews for is below:

If you have any links to add, do so below.

Valkyria Chronicles II releases on Friday in the UK on UMD for PSP, and is out now in the US.

    + i think this is the most innovative game this generation. Even more innovative than LBP’s or Super Mario Galaxies.

    It’s just for the first time Real-time/Turn-based/Tactical Strategy is available on consoles + it is executed absolutely perfect with JRPG mix.

    First game was absolutely perfect. Just amazing. I think second one is just for the balancing everything because in the first game Tank was always a cheat.

    @7 Yeah, that franchise is already enough to purchase PS3 IMO.

    If only Sony could market this game. Fucking Sega :(

    Just please be HD. And not 360 exclusive. Then I’ll be happy.

    I played the first two missions of VCII last night.

    It really is fantastic so far. It’s just how I remembered playing the original.

    Terrific.
