Sega has just released the opening animated movie for Valkryia Chronicles III. Unlike the opening for Valkryia Chronicles II, which focused more on the main character’s life at Gallia’s military academy, the new opening for Valkryia Chronicles III seems to highlight the big battles and tanks the series is best known for.
The song playing in the opening movie is titled “Moshimo Kimi ga Negau no Nara,” and is performed by J-Pop star May Nakabayashi (aka May’n).
Valkryia Chronicles III is scheduled to release for the PSP in Japan on January 27, 2011. Although Sega has not confirmed any plans to produce a localized release of Valkryia Chronicles III for western audiences, we expect to see a western release near the end of 2011. That’s based on the September 2010 release date in North America and Europe for Valkryia Chronicles II, following the January 21, 2010 debut in Japan.
