Sega Of America not touching Valkyria Chronicles glitch

By Heath | June 26, 2008 at 11:38 pm

Valkyria Chronicles, which was known as Senjou no Varukyria (Valkyrie of the Battlefield) in Japan, has a well-documented glitch. I was prompted to search for info on this after I became a victim of it. After clearing the story battle in chapter 10, the game froze, giving me just a black screen to stare at. Unable to reset or any other such thing, the only option was to turn off the system. Finding this strange, I took to the internet, and found out I was definitely not alone. This has happened to plenty of people, for no apparent reason; and when it strikes, trying to clear the battle from a mid-battle save is not sufficient, as the glitch will strike again. One must re-enter the potentially very long, tricky battle from the beginning. Wondering if this would be fixed in time for the North American release, I contacted an overall indifferent Sega of America about the matter.
