SEGA may well be digging further into its back catalogue for some potential PC ports, as it sounds like Valkyria Chronicles has done very well for them indeed. It certainly looked that way, given how high it was riding in the Steam charts since an 11 November release.
Speaking to trade publication MCV, SEGA confirmed that the PC version of the game “blew all forecasts and predictions out of the water” during its first 24 hours of availability. At one point it was apparently selling better than Advanced Warfare.
“We’re … delighted at the response from the Steam community which indicates that newcomers to the series are finding it as enchanting and engaging as those who have played it before,” adds SEGA’s John Clark.
Hopefully whoever gave the nod for Valkyria Chronicles to make the transition to PC is getting a nice Christmas bonus.
This success also opens up the possibility of further SEGA titles jumping to our platform. The active #SEGAPCPorts campaign have been pushing for this for around a year now, and suddenly their requests for PC ports of titles like Vanquish are looking somewhat more likely.
Of course it helps that whoever handled the PC release of Valkyria Chronicles did a rather good job.
