The wait for Valkyria Chronicles 2 on PlayStation Portable is nearly over, however you will be able to play the game sooner than you expect. A demo will be available for download today on the PlayStation Network according to Sega's Community Manager.
A sequel to the well received Valkyria Chronicles on PlayStation 3, Valkyria Chronicles 2 takes the first game's battle system and distinctive art style and shrinks them down into portable form for the PSP. Though the final game will include local-multiplayer, there is no indication in the release whether the demo is single player only or not. In addition, the release also notes that the US release of the game will include some new exclusive items, as well as well as unlockable characters just like the Japanese version.
