The newest chapter of SEGA yet again playing with people's hearts.
>“Valkyria: Azure Revolution” would be the official English title for “Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria.” We previously translated it as “Valkyria of the Blue Revolution.” “Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria” and “Valkyria: Azure Revolution” are two separate trademarks filed by Sega.
How are those bets going anons
- Browser Game
8th Gen Title
VC2's existence is not really relevant in the larger scope of things, disputing its canon or not, since nothing is set after the original VC's Epilogue, since that would negate the point of the entire series.
Well, whatver it is, SEGA might be trying for a western release it seems.
I don't recall Senjou no Valkirya 3 having an official trademarked english title, we just call Valkriya Chronicles 3 because that's what obviously how it would be if it ever got an official english release instead of a fan translation.
Fortunatly the people that I have been playing online vidya for the past 10 years gave me a different nickname based on that one, so I use that sometimes.
>Where the righteous Valkyria
Pretty sure Valkyria were dumped together with the Darcsens in the Prejudice agenda, regardless of what they intended while opening giant holes in mountains.
>They were called saviors and treated like gods.
Riela is not treated as such.
Alicia was afraid of learning about who she was till Welking confessed his love.
Selvaria was literally a lab rat.
I hope you're only looking at those vanilla doujins.
What are you talking about? All three games are as weeb as fuck. The first game included a goddamn twin-tailed tsundere idol.
So you would introduce fucking Time-Travel in a series that doesn't call for it just your Waifu can live.
Holy shit, end yourself.
Selvaria being dead doesn't even matter, her popularity granted her the right appear in every game in one way or another.
>Selvaria being dead doesn't even matter, her popularity granted her the right appear in every game in one way or another.
I mean damn Sega even put her in some anime fighter.
I didn't have the webm version I thought I did but ah well.
No, I was just pointing out that Japan is in a LN boom and are really into those kind of set up stories. It's no different than VC2 jumping on the PSP and high school anime shit at the time.
I don't know why you didn't get the reference when we're talking about a weeb game in the first place, maybe you're one of those closet fags that likes to pretend VC is serious business despite having a pig for a squad mate in the first game.
I don't know about that, I just think it would be amusing if Selvaria went Overlording somewhere. You could replace her with Isara being reincarnated but I don't think she has as big a fanbase.
I don't want to get my hopes up, but they wouldn't get a trademark for a Pachinko machine, and I doubt they'd bother releasing a mobile in the west, either. Not for a series with such a relatively small fanbase that would require so much localization.
Of course, I doubt it will be the proper console sequel we all want it to be. It will probably be a 2DS exclusive, or some stupid shit.
I did play it. It's a shockingly solid game, but that doesn't change the fact that the story and tone are utter garbage.
My faith in the series never recovered after this
>tfw skellington alicia could have been a thing
All I ask of the new game's story is that you finally get to crush the four-eyed bitch responsible for experimenting on Selvaria and Aliasse. Avan only moralfag-speeched her and let her run off.
>That is something both VC1
Absolutely wrong. If you can't see the difference between VC1's beach scene where the girls are in 20's style suits and the guys get kind of flustered, and VC2's pool scene with Juliana in a string bikini with tits bouncing all over the place and Zeri getting fucking nosebleeds then there's something wrong with you.
>Valkyria: Azure Revolution
The more I think about it the more I think it taking place during the First Europan War makes sense. It was fought over Ragnite resources and Ragnite and Gallia's colors are both azure.
Most people seem to forget this
It's common for companies see someone does great porn and asks them to do official manga or character designs for them, sometimes even when it's doujinshi of one of the series they own
A mobile/browser game seems unlikely, since they just recently shut down the mobile/browser VC game due to it being a failture. A pachinko machine seems to be the most logical answer, but you wouldn't need to trademark a specific name for that (they could just go with Valkyria Chronicles: The Pachinko Machine).
A new game may be possible, as Sega really hasn't put out a big game on the PS4 yet. Realistically though, it may just be your typical random patent filing and nothing more.
It's also barely mentioned and not remotely disturbing in the least due to how it's portrayed along with how the rest of VC2 is no different than an episode of the magic school bus.
>rework the canvas engine to make things look like an ink brush painting
I just want them to move out of Gallia for the next game.
>it's about Jaegar returning to his homeland and riling his subjects up to rebellion against the Empire
>a brown qt with great jugs and twintails becomes Jaegar's valkyria after being shot by a sniper
>Raita was reined in on VC2
Yeah it was pretty obvious if you read the artbook
>Sorry but we can only have one big breasted heroine
>We can't just make all the girls super pretty, that's ridiculous
Their biggest mistake was killing off cowtits despite her complete dog like personality. Waifus like that are hard to come by. It'd be like Bamco killing off Alisa or something equally dumb. No wonder Sega's in shambles.
I have less than zero hope for this, and it only twists the knife even further with regards to how dead VC is. An English trademark probably rules out pachinko, but I'm sure it will be something even more ridiculous and retarded that we haven't thought of yet. This is Sega we're talking about.
Yeah but when was the last time they actually did the right thing?
Yeah, in Japan.
The only reason the PC port happened is because Sega Europe infiltrated Sega Japan's headquarter and stole the source code.
Sega Japan, Europe and America pretend to be one company but they actually hate each other and hate it when one of the other branches have success. True story.
WORLD WAR 1 GAME WITH TONS OF TRENCHES PLEASE
Im so hyped for a ps4 or vita game. VC3 was preetty much perfect with the mechanics, all they need to do is bring that and make new maps with it.
>totally a ps4 VC guise selvaria is gonna be back
>trusting sega to not violently fuck your face with a white hot steel horse cock
Haven't you learned your lesson yet? It's Sega. It's going to be a japan only mobile phone game that's a usual clone of puzzle & dragons etc but they ban foreign IPs and the game costs 5 bucks. Mark my fucking words.
Oh look, another memer who has ignored all the good games Sega has put out through the years and is bandwagoning his favorite IGN reviewers and youtube stars.
Yeah because its totally Segas fault that their games don't sell right. I'm sure you bought VC1 at launch and didn't pirate VC2 right? You faggots are all the same. No one cares when they come out but suddenly pretend to care in retrospect and say nothing comes out but bad Sonic games. I'd be hard pressed to find an actual real Sega fan on this shitty site of nintoddlers and sonyggers.
I supported VC, I supported Phantasy Star, I supported Yakuza, I bought the fucking games when they came out and I still get fucked over because Sega abandoned the US outside of Sonic and licensed anime games while shiteaters like you defend them as being based and unable to do anything wrong. They don't even develop anything outside of Shining, Yakuza and Phantasy Star now, everything else they release is outsourced, even Sonic gets outsourced.
>yfw they tried to hire Raita for this game but after all the years of his art becoming more and more extreme he's now incapable of drawing anything remotely human
>yfw they get another artist.
Sure you have, thats real nice if you're telling the truth. To bad the mass market doesn't buy it. Or do you think they should make million dollar sequels for just you and me?
>Muh human experimentation is totally far more corrupt and dark than creating a suicide squad made up of convicts, blackmail victims, wrongly accused, etc that are then sent to perform illegal raids that break international treaties
>VC1/3 setting has Jews being treated like niggers and put in concentration camps and mining to death almost no different than cattle
>VC2 setting already fixed up all the shit VC1/3 has and only has 1 group of rebels relying on MUH HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION that oh wait was taken from the final boss of VC1 which means MUH HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION existed in VC1 to begin with if you paid any attention to how Selvaria is treated
Fuck off nigger. By your logic so long as The Lion King has 4 seconds of human experimentation slipped the background during The Circle of Life scene it's more dark and corrupt than Berserk.
>Typing of the Dead
>Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax
>Yakuza 5 finally
Sorry, what? I'm sorry your autistic furry franchise hasn't gotten any good games though
Great response, fucking faggot.
Everyone's actually lucky it got not one but 2 sequels in the first place, considering the first one didn't meet sales expectations.
>Valkyria: Azure Revolution
Fuck you Sega. Setting up Jaeger's sequel in the first game then dropping it and now teasing a name that would fit it.
VC3 > VC2 > VC1
Also, I bought the VC1 artbook yesterday and noticed something odd. See if you can spot it.
Yep, a lot of official stuff seems to think you play as the Federation
I know they've been scanned, but I really enjoy having nice thick physical books
Why is this surprising? The localization for VC1 was horrible.
>Changing S-Rank to A-Rank for no reason
>Changing Colonel to Brigadier General for no reason
>Changing ... to Welkin for no reason
Are just a few examples. When has localization ever got everything right?
VC3 really wasn't that dark at all. They are just used as black ops. Not suicide squads. And VC2 addresses the Jews the same way. And '1 group of rebels' doing experimentation is wrong. It is implied the government does it when VC3 confirmed it.
>I'm sure you bought VC1 at launch
Not at launch, but I bought it within the first year.
>didn't pirate VC2 right?
Nope. I got the WRRRRRRRRRRRRR version, and would have gotten VC3 if they had made it available, even if I did still feel betrayed that they were keeping the series off consoles.
Oh boy I can't wait for the new VC Mobile phone pachinko game
THANK YOU BASED SEGA
No, he just makes them as cheesecake as possible so you still end up fapping anyway.
>everyone is completely expendable
>literally has to buy their own shit because they won't be supplied
>thrown to be meat shields for the regular army who has practically no value in comparison to Imca alone
>not suicide squads
At least making blatant lies when you shit post.
No they aren't. They get the latest state of the art technology, and act more like fire fighters. The only reason it turned out like a suicide squad is
>Regular army won't help out because derp reasons
>The main character is mother fucking Avan whose idea of inspiring comrades in the face of adversity is to laugh or shoot himself in the gut
If Zeri was the main character you would be steam rolling those faggots just like Welkin. The only threat are those fake Valks and apparently everyone in high school is a hidden prodigy.
Oh and don't forget your local baker is an invincible war hero. The rebels never stood a chance.
But don't worry none of that is remotely dark when it compared to OFF SCREEN HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION! I mean look at how hideous Leon was, it's like we've never seen such atrocious-oh wait Max was like that and he had it even worse because he was the prototype.
Nope. They just got that off the rebels. And they were isolated because the main army was decimated after VC1 and they were all clustered on the front lines. If you paid any attention, you would know this.
Not even close. Max did that to himself. The Valkyrur program is to make new ones entirely. And the corruption goes far beyond that program.
>Genius engineer who created the 1CP tank
>Not latest tech
Just because they had no fake Valks doesn't mean shit. You were decked out as far as comparing the academy to the regular army goes. You were never short of supplies, anything you lacked was within one mission's distance away, and as a city Lanseal was so loaded they could afford to pay Class G enough cash to repair the whole damn city, they just made them 'work' for it first because it's a game and it wouldn't be very fun if Lanseal's administration did their own jobs now would it?
The excuses made for the main army are poor at best, considering they were lenient enough to allow two god of wars stay retired even with the rebellion. Assuming the rebels managed to beat down Avan and wipe out the Academy, what the hell makes you think they would get past Alicia?
It was so light hearted even during the finale the Queen came out at the front with the fleet where she would be open to artillery fire just to be cheer leader and save the day with reinforcements.
>Not even close. Max did that to himself. The Valkyrur program is to make new ones entirely. And the corruption goes far beyond that program.
Yes because experimenting on yourself is not human experimentation. Clearly Max was the first specimen, and implied he was lab rat #1. It totally wasn't implied that Selvaria was a guinea pig until Max took her under his wing nope totally not.
You simply care way too much about human experimentation and over exaggerate how horrible it is in a fucking wartime state. The entire point is that even such a serious subject is treated like nothing because of the presentation.
The fact that only think of it as dark and edgy is proof enough. You are not some genius ahead of your time, you are just trying to find meaning in a high school anime game so you can win an internet argument.
>a year ago, VC was released onto Steam with surprisingly nice results on an almost whim
I really don't want them to fuck this up.
But a part of me fears that's impossible.
But they were not loaded. They even go as far as to say their expenses has been drained from the war. That's why the academy even has R&D to begin with. They also reverse engineered some rebel tech. They were hopelessly outgunned in comparison.
Not even the same thing, again. They were creating new Valkyrur. And it's not 'just the rebels'. The human experimentation thing is just one element of it. I get that you have a hate boner for VC2, but at least try to make a good point.
Prove me wrong.
It's those strong Valkyur genes.
>in Riela's ending you find out that Kurt wants many children
Time to restart the Valkyrian Race
>best cross title shocktrooper and prime NTR bait
The bias is real.
>expenses drained from the war
>Lanseal had enough backup funds to rebuild the ENTIRE CITY just waiting for Avan to earn it with some jobs they issued to him meaning they were swimming in money the whole time
>implying CP1 tank was remotely related to rebel tech
>implying maxed out R&D in VC2 wasn't superior to the regular army
>implying the rebel tech wasn't the result of a collaboration with Lanseal to begin with
They were never hopelessly outgunned. All the enemy had was fake Valks, everything else was beyond negligible considering fresh students mopped the floor with them with absolutely zero strategy. If they didn't even have those Valks I doubt Lanseal would even have 10% of it's casualties.
It's like you never played 1 or 3. Gallian corruption was huge. It wasn't about them being poor, it was about them jewing their own nation and then blaming it on jews.
I can kinda see a prequel to this. I mean Ryu ga Gotoku 0 did and while the Japanese weren't buying it up the ass like previous entries and needed the rest of the Asian market to buy up the PS3 version to save it, it did bring new life and future opportunities like Kiwami. Maybe they want to try it with this game too.
Also, the students were so young because they didn't have many seasoned soldiers. So that plays a part in it. Despite the elite students, most were just mooks.
They rebellion also had state of the art machinery that was far beyond the capability of normal military. That was stated in the artbook.
The rebels were of really high nobility. Even more so than the princess of Gallia herself (for obvious reasons).
Yeah, Gallia is corrupt, but VC2 showed another angle, as in that they are literally not shying away from actual creation of Valkyrur (not just the pseudo ones they experiment with), essentially making weapons of mass destruction.
That plotpoint will carry onward into the future. I am a mega fan of VC1 and 3 and I do think they have dark undertones too. But VC2 is not so fluffy as people want to make it out to be.
That's not the point. It's the presentation and EXECUTION. Like I said, with your logic mother fucking Disney films can be darker than Spawn if they just implied a girl was raped or subjected to human experimentation.
It's about HOW those dark undertones were dealt with, and they were treated like Saturday morning cartoon villains. You don't even know the extent of how it affected the victims. For all we know it could just be they no longer could think for themselves, and the pain was like getting a kidney stone. Big whoop.
Everything is off screen, the enemies are not the least bit sympathetic because the only ones we know are Leon and Julianna. More importantly the protagonist and his party don't even treat them like human beings, just video game enemies and give their undivided attention towards random shit.
It's incredibly autistic and ignoring the entire point of VC2 if you even dare think of it as anything but the most light hearted of the 3. It's in the very damn art books themselves by the creators. They wanted to make a light hearted high school sequel to cash in with the girls.
If a comedian makes racist and rape jokes is he dark and edgy all of a sudden? Same logic here.
It's pretty much implied that the mecha guys could be saved given how Leon was. It's just that you filled Leon with lead before you figured out how so he died. Julianna died because unlike the rebels she didn't have a giant battery truck powering her, so she drained her energy and died after going all out on Leon.
So if this was Welkin he would just smoke grenade every one of them and have Alicia disable them as befits the Stu couple.
Avan on the other hand being Avan can only charge forward and attack. Remember he is canonically an unchanging character who only claims he grew up when the only actions he took at the end of the game were throwing away his brother's diary; a meaningless change since he already took all those lines to heart so his brother lives on in him. He's still the dumb kid in 3 who would use a stock rifle and charge a boss tank by himself if he thought he had to.
Plenty of Disney movies are actually pretty dark, yes. It's not always about presentation. Spawn really is not that dark a story at all when it's just the usual hell politics and violence. There's no cover for it.
VC1 and VC3 also had a lot of lighter character representation. Especially VC3 with the much more dialogue per characters, most of which were pretty lighthearted.
And I don't want to hear about 'it's incredibly autistic' when you will never budge at hating the style of the game and throw out any idea that the game does have deeper and darker elements that is shown off. You are focusing too much on the outward styling of the game and not the actual theme of it.
The only difference between VC2 and VC1/3 is that the lighthearted segments takes place within or near the military school premises.
And I disagree that the rebellion were caricatures. They probably had just as much a right to rule Gallia as the princess.
>Plenty of Disney movies are actually pretty dark, yes. It's not always about presentation. Spawn really is not that dark a story at all when it's just the usual hell politics and violence.
Your definition of dark is so autistic it's practically headcanon. Do you realize this? If not figure it out. You are basically defining your own vocabulary. Go ahead and try posting your opinion on your social media or friends list, I'll wait. Not one person will agree with you because you're just arguing semantics, very meaningless semantics while ignoring the very important context.
>VC1 and VC3 also had a lot of lighter character representation.
I'm sorry but none of them resulted in face tanking bullets because your leader has no plan but charge. None of them treated missions and battles like it was a game unless they were Cedric. It's a simple matter of Avan being a mongoloid while Welkin and Kurt were strategists.
Avan literally shot himself and the game presented it in a positive manner. It doesn't get any lighter in character presentation than that because it literally whitewashes a suicidal retard in a good manner. That absolutely never happened with Welkin, let alone Kurt.
>They probably had just as much a right to rule Gallia as the princess.
No they didn't. The princess came from generations of rulership, it doesn't matter what race they were. They were stewards for the Valkyria. The rebels were just leftover losers that descended from Valkyria mingling with the local population, and at no point did the Valkyria claim that their mixed descendants would rule over Gallia before they disappeared in history so it's completely bogus.
Maybe tone it down with 'autistic, autistic' insults? Maybe you just have a different outlook about it, no? That's fine. But you can't convincing me by going straight for canned insults.
And since when did I say Avan was a genius of the group? You just pulled that out of thin air there. And no, this isn't even the first time a suicide attack was shown off in a positive light. Basically both VC1 and 3 does the same exact thing.
And you basically proved that the rebel's right to rule is just as nebulous as the princess's. You can't really take the lore of it so straight, especially when the princess's own is not set in stone. The rebels' issue is that they tried to basically splinter the nation. That's where they made the mistake. Not that they had absolutely no stake in leadership. They were considered nobility. Even the princess acknowledged it.
"do you rike it?"
"sir she looks emaciated"
>Maybe you just have a different outlook about it, no?
Coming from someone who has been preaching the same shit all day ignoring every point I've made while recycling your arguments I can easily tell you to eat your own words.
The reason I say you are autistic is because you literally ignore every other variable I mentioned just to say "Look, I'm TECHNICALLY correct so long as you use my standards which no one else does."
>And no, this isn't even the first time a suicide attack was shown off in a positive light
Charging into an enemy trying to kill/stop them with a high chance of dying is completely different than shooting yourself in the gut to try to convince a girl to stop shaking. The fact that you actually dared to compare the two is insulting.
>You can't really take the lore of it so straight, especially when the princess's own is not set in stone.
>Valkyria literally proclaimed the Princess's line to be the rulers of Gallia
>Valkyria support over their rulership is not set in stone
And you wonder why I have so little patience with you. Every single time you post, you literally twist words and somehow either interpret them in a way that makes you believe you are right, or flat out do it intentionally just so you can continue shit posting.
I implore you to try showing this to anyone you know in real life. They would disown you.
Oh god this bitch is probably the only character I've fapped to more than Selvaria
>lewd everyone could have been a thing
I don't think you have any grounds for all these ridiculous accusations when you gloss over all my points for no reason other than to prove me wrong and get on the usual VC2 bashing. If you dislike the game, that's fine. But don't lord it over me like I need to follow lock in step. Too bad for you, I don't.
>And you wonder why I have so little patience with you. Every single time you post, you literally twist words and somehow either interpret them in a way that makes you believe you are right, or flat out do it intentionally just so you can continue shit posting.
How do you even function knowing not everyone agrees with you on everything? Is that your general attitude with people? "Oh, you're autistic" or "shitposting"? I don't believe I did that once with you. You don't even have the courtesy to believe other people can even think differently.
>I implore you to try showing this to anyone you know in real life. They would disown you.
I have always been known to own my own opinions. I don't need anyone else's approval.
Good god, Riela is the second most perfect girl in VC after Selvaria.
>you will never make a master race Valkyria girl pregnant with your inferior human seed and make filthy halfbreed children
Life is not worth living.
Honestly though, this potential new game would have to introduce Aerial and Naval battles for me to get interested on it as a game, not a just a new fap folder.
>There isn't a lot of VC doujins
That's arguable, it's obviously not a monster factory like idoolmaster, Touhou and Kancolle, but compared to some mild hit series, it has enough.
His drawining for Selvaria in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax was just one year ago.
Only "anatomy experts" such as yourself has any problems with how Raita's developed his artstyle, meanwhile there are kilometers long lines for his booth at Comikets.
>enjoyed VC 1 on PS3 immensely
>then Sega had to go full autist and release the sequels on PSP and not even localize them
Yeah, VC 1 was great guys. Anyone want to talk about VC 1? And just VC 1?
That's rare coming from Japan. They usually seem to be afraid of any girl taller than 1.65M.
>being so beta that you let your woman be the dominant one in the relationship
That hardly counts, the girls are just a tad more assertive and the dudes in his works are literally made of spaghetti.
Femdom is getting stepped on the crotch, or reverse-raped, or gang banged.
Last time I've seen it Mahou Shoujo, 6 girls were fighting for a spaghetti to fuck them.
>The only threat are those fake Valks and apparently everyone in high school is a hidden prodigy.
Funny thing is, most of them ARE hidden prodigies. Most of them were specifically scouted for their abilities. The rest had to pass a hard as fuck entrance exam by the skin of their teeth.
>considering they were lenient enough to allow two god of wars stay retired even with the rebellion
The only recognized Gallian Valkyria is Alicia. Its stated in the artbook that no one outside of the Nameless was aware Riela was a valkyria. Besides, since Alicia was at Lanseal, they probably thought she was fighting there. That, or they were under orders from Cordelia to leave Alicia and Welkin alone.
>have her on your boxart
>she's literally the titular Valkyria
>build her up as a central antagonist
>kill her off in the dumbest way possible
Fuck these writers. Why couldn't we recruit her? I wanted to save her and those heaving tits of hers.
I wanted a Selvaria route instead having only Alicia as the choice of romance.
Avsn and school was total ass, but the gameplay greatly improved, withing the PSP limits.
Also human sperimentation and mass genocide were present.
I's by far the worstVc title, but it's not a bad game at all.
Posting underrated valkyria
Wasn't there a DLC for her?
Although I agree. More of her in general would be very appreciated.
The game saved you from your own shit taste.
Alicia > *
Two very different things. I linked to the wrong post, but normally Raita does give his girls a more well defined rear end if the character isn't explicitly meant to be "flat", at least by his standards. The bikini does not flatter that flat Asian-style saggy butt very much.
