The year is 1937 EC.

Two years later, the ashes of the Second Europan war still glow in Gallia’s history. But even peace is a fragile happiness - and hearts that once fought side by side are not forever friends.

In the midst of this peace appears a group known as the Gallian Revolutionary Army, swearing to topple the current government - in a lightning fast coup, they arm themselves with the best of both Gallian technology and soldiers.

What was once a small but strong unified country is instantly plunged back onto the battlefield. But the day and age of the last war’s heros is already fading out - with families to protect and children to raise, they are the ones who must now be protected. While numbers split and tensions rise, the spotlight shines to a handful of up-and-coming students at a Gallian Military Academy.

As civil war begins to rage across the country, morality and war clash with passion and ideals. But this time the distinction between blue and red is not so simple - nor will it ever be. Gallia once stood as a defiant beacon of hope against a giant empire… but can the country now defend against it’s own?

As of today, SEGA is proud to announce Valkyria Chronicles II - the sequel to the legendary PS3 epic - is coming to the west exclusively on the PSP! Join the battle once more in the next addition to the Valkyria franchise - created by the same team behind the original.

Valkyria Chronicles II will be arriving Summer 2010 - until then, you can follow all news Valkyria on the official Facebook and Twitter pages!

Finally, we’d like to give a special shout out to all the fans - those who put a fantastic game back into the spotlight, and continue to show their dedication and support for the series. This one goes out to all of you.

    I will buy this game and stick it in my pants because its existence vexes people so.

    mmmmmmmmmm

    As someone coming from the other side—owning a PSP but no PS3—this excites me.

    The psp has some good games. Granted the one I play the most, FF:Tactics, is a revamp but the new cut-scenes and redone game script is fantastic. God of War, Monster Hunter:FU and Megaman are games I sill play.

    Ill definately be grabbing this game when it is released.

    Just like how Okamiden on DS is a slap in the face of all those loyal PS2 and Wii owners who bought the game in droves?

    Let's face facts: It's a hail mary miracle that Valkyria (as with Okami) is getting any kind of sequel.

    I just don't want to spend money on a PSP.

    I bought a DS for handheld gaming, that's as far as I am taking it.
