SEGA Trademarks Valkyria Duel Could it be...? March 30, 2012
Fresh on the heels of the announcement of SEGA's serious financial hardship
comes interesting news for fans of the company's Valkyria Chronicles series.
According to Andriasang
, SEGA has trademarked the title "Valkyria Duel" in Japan. Whether or not this game is associated with SEGA's well-known Valkyria franchise remains to be seen, and it's unknown if SEGA intends on releasing a game with this title at all, or is simply protecting a possible future foray into widening the series.
The Valkyria series began on PlayStation 3 with Valkyria Chronicles in 2008. Two years later, in 2010, its sequel came to PSP in the form of Valkyria Chronicles II. Valkyria Chronicles III came to PSP in Japan in 2011, though there are currently no plans to bring it to the west.
We've reached out to SEGA for official comment and will update this story when we hear back.
