SEGA PlayStation platform title Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictional Europe during the 1930s during a fictional war. Like many games in Japan, the title has spun off a manga and an anime.
A DVD of the anime comes with a special bonus clip called "A Day at the Beach." War gets old, and nothing says summertime like playing volleyball, carrying around melons or sporting a ginormous head.
Kotaku AU Note: How adorable was the beach getaway chapter in the PS3 version? I think that's when I fell in love with that game.
