Valkyria Chronicles Live Action Movie! Is It an April Fool’s Joke?

Valkyria Chronicles Live Action Movie

So, Famitsu has announced that Valkyria Chronicles will be getting a live action movie. Seriously! The game with art that is intentionally styled as though it was hand painted is going to become a movie with real people and real-looking scenes. Unless they plan to filter it to make it look hand painted, but what would be the point of that?

At any rate, the whole thing looks very official. There’s even a picture of the director and a storyboard image. But, alas, the date on the article clearly says April 1st. Is this the first of today’s looong string of April Fool’s Jokes all over the internet? It seems likely, but only time will tell!

If you want to see the story for yourself, head over to Famitsu (Google translated, for fans who don’t read Japanese).
