(Post-Đánh Giá notes for importers. Read the PSLS guide to importing here.)

There are a lot of English bits on the menus, and thanks lớn icons và such, you should be able to lớn figure out the general idea of what’s going on in most thực đơn screens of VC3. Story scenes are about a 50-50 split on spoken dialogue with readable text, versus all text. There’s not a lot of furigana over the kanji, so if you want to lớn know every detail of what’s being said at all times, you’ll need to lớn have sầu a very good kanji reading cấp độ. If you’re like a lot of second-language Japanese learners và your listening skills are better than your reading skills, then at least the most important scenes will be understandable to lớn you. Reading things like facial expressions, tone, and body toàn thân language tends khổng lồ help as well, as the manga style tends lớn make the character images very expressive.

The real problem, if your Japanese cấp độ is low, might be misunderstanding your mission objectives, which would lead you down a road of trial and error và possibly a few failed missions, just because you didn’t underst& what you were supposed lớn bởi. If this is acceptable lớn you, & you love sầu Valkyria, it still might be worth an import.

I’ve read that the PSP. homebrew scene is going to soon see some kind of English patch for this game. I unfortunately can’t make a recommendation one way or another because I have no flippin’ idea how that all works. I’ve sầu never needed an English patch for my games, so I’ve sầu never explored how I install those or what is involved. Sorry. If you know about the patch & have sầu good faith that it will be released, will be of good quality, and will work, then you might consider importing a copy of this game right now, while it’s a little bit cheaper. The release of the patch might also lead khổng lồ an increase in demvà for the game, và then a subsequent price hike in places lượt thích eBay & Play-Asia. This game is compatible with PS Vita, though switching regions on Vita is a pain, so consider that before you buy digital.
