I'm passing on this one for now since I haven't played VC2 yet. I really should play the game since I loved VC so much but since they stuck it on the PSP, I just don't think it feels the same.

Just got the Valkyria Chronicles Design Archive. This is what an art book should be!

@Vinny You have probably heard this before, but I think Valkyria Chronicles 2 definitely does hold the standard of the first game even if it is on the PSP. You should definitely start playing it.

Someone should start a petition to bring VC3 to the States

I own the DD of VC2... I just haven't played it because it's on my PSP. However, I have the component cables and could easily hook it up to my TV and use my awesome headphones... hrmmm... after FFXIII, I may do that... or crack open Infamous 2 or Catherine (or a million other games, damn CAG!)

I don't know what you're talking about. I'm sure this is the art book everyone has really been waiting for. VC2 was the perfect sequel. It fulfilled all of the potential that VC1 showed on the PS3. I think in part, due to the transition to the PSP, where the series can really thrive. The story in particular came alive with it's perfect momentum and great new cast.

I see no cause for drama here...

Really though, thanks for the heads up OP. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that Udon can make a better sequel.

By drama he means the constant delays that the first VC art book suffered and the outrage that ensued after each one.

the drama refers to us waiting a year for it to be released and some of us having our orders canceled for by amazon due to "lack of quantity" only to have amazon relist the book the next day. And I'll tell you right now this is not the book I've been waiting for because I do not plan to get a psp thus I will never play this game. I've been waiting for the first book, and alas will have it in 2 days. You sound like you helped make VC2 or something lol, or atleast an amz cs rep trying to get us to buy the dotd.

The character design for VC2 was pretty inferior to the original, but as long as this is a true "design archive" and has lots of nice concept art I'm definitely in for this.

It just guts me to know that Sega casually decided to kill off the VC franchise outside of Japan considering that VC3 looked like a return to form in every way imaginable.

This is awesome! Now all we need is VC 3 and it's artbook. That game looks 5x better than 2.

Yep.

Retail stores were getting the book in before Amazon and Amazon had canceled most orders about 4 months before the book came out, so people had to contact CS and explain it was the same item after Amazon put the book back up.

The first book was actually in my Gold Box the other day, so I placed an order (again). It was "In stock" and still says "In stock" yet it hasn't shipped. It's not even being prepared. Meanwhile, the other item on the same order is here already. Ridiculous.

I emailed Udon praising them for the VC Design Archive and asking some questions about the VC2 book and this is the response I got: The Valkyria 2 book will be the same binding, cover, and paper quality. It's 304 pages this time, and I'd say this focuses more on characters (less vehicles, weapons and environments, though there is still plenty of each). The overall text-to-art ratio is roughly the same.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Sweet, down to $29.40 now - hoping it hits $23 like the last one. I'm in - here's to hoping it doesn't delay out past the expiration of my credit card.
