Valkyria Chronicles returns as freemium card game in Japan

Valkyria Chronicles returns as freemium Japanese card game
Sega and NHN Corp have launched a free-to-play, browser-based card game in Japan entitled Valkyria Duel, based on the Valkyria Chronicles action strategy franchise. The game's user test runs until June 25.

"Why, Sega? Do you drink our tears for everlasting life?" Joystiq News Editor Alexander Sliwinski fell to his knees and screamed to the heavens this morning. "Just divert a tenth of that Sonic sequel money to a multi-platform console continuation of Valkyria Chronicles."

Valkyria Chronicles 2 did make an international lap on PSP back in 2010, but Sega announced late last year that the franchise's third installment – also on PSP – was not planned for North America or Europe. No word yet if the Valkyria card game will go international.
