Valkyria Chronicles: A Niche Smash-Hit.

Despite being showered in praise, it's yet to really capture a substantial audience. Those few that love the franchise, love it though. Hence the excitement on message boards around the world when it was discovered that the publisher had registered in May.

Assuming the game is real, the big question will revolve around which platform it ends up on. Most are clamouring for a PlayStation 3 sequel — will SEGA listen?

Valkyria Chronicles 2 is out on the PlayStation Portable a little later in the year.
