Welkin, Alicia Shoot DLC at Valkyria Chronicles 3

April 23, 2011 Written by Heath Hindman

While still lacking any international release dates — surely to the dismay of many English-speaking fans around the world — Valkyria Chronicles 3 is still rolling out content in Japan. This week, the Japanese PlayStation Store added a mission that’s sure to excite fans of the series, as it brings Welkin, Alicia, Largo, Rosie, Edy, and other members of Squad 7 into the game, even if only temporarily.

Available for 600 yen (about $7 US), the “extra episode” does not feature the Nameless, the ragtag bunch of misfits that make up the stars of Valkyria Chronicles 3. Instead, it focuses purely on the heroes of the original Valkyria Chronicles, as the player must use them to take down Calamity Raven. This all still fits within the timeline, as VC3 is a prequel to the second game, taking place right alongside the original chronologically.

Here are a few screenshots:

And here’s Sega’s official trailer of the new episode:

Fun fact: the main enemy they’re shooting at is voiced by the same guy that did Kaji in Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Gaston in the Japanese version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Stay tuned for more news on this game as it emerges.
