Valkyria Chronicles 3 English fan translation now available

Players with a copy of PlayStation Portable title Valkyria Chronicles 3 can now download a fan-made patch that translates the game into English, the patch's creators announced on their website.

The Valkyria Chronicles 3 Fan Translation Project has been in development since February 2012. The project's goal was to translate the script for the title — which was only released in Japan in 2011 — and build a patch inserting the localization into the game's code.

The patch is compatible with the Valkyria Chronicles 3: Extra Edition and requires at least 4GB of open space on users' computers, as well as the installation of custom firmware for the PSP. Further instructions on integrating the patch are available in a post on the project's website.

The creators also note that text during the tutorial has some formatting issues and later in the game there are some instances of text spilling over dialogue boxes. The team is currently working to address both these problems.

Valkyria Chronicles 3 is the third title in the franchise and framed as a side story occurring parallel to the timeline of the first game. The title features darker themes than its predecessors and follows a group of "nameless soldiers who, on the verge of despair, changed history." The tactical role-playing game can still be purchased for PSP through import retailers.
