A “whois” check reveals that Sega Corporation has registered the web domain “valkyria3.jp.”More precisely, the info that turns up in the check is:

[Querying whois.jprs.jp]

[ restricted to network administration purposes. For further information,     ]
[ use ‘whois -h whois.jprs.jp help’. To suppress Japanese output, add’/e’     ]

This was registered in May, but Sega could very easily be saving up for an announcement at September’s Tokyo Game Show, which would also allow the US version of Valkyria Chronicles 2 to become available and make a bit of a splash. The timing is right and the move makes business sense, but as for now this is still just a rumor.
