A fan-led localization group has released a translation patch
for Sega's PSP tactical RPG Valkyria Chronicles 3
, making the game playable in English for the first time.
The patch requires a custom firmware-equipped PSP or PS Vita to play, along with a ripped UMD or digital PSN version of Valkyria Chronicles 3: Extra Edition
. While the patch also works with the original version of Valkyria Chronicles 3
, translators note
that players will experience glitches during gameplay.
After localizing the first two entries in the series on the PlayStation 3 and PSP, Sega declined
to release a translated version of Valkyria Chronicles 3
in North America and Europe, citing low sales. The digital version of Valkyria Chronicles 3
is currently on sale
for 980 yen (approximately $9.50 USD) from the Japanese PlayStation Network, making it an ideal time for series die-hards to test out the new fan-produced localization.
