Game News Valkyrie Profile: the original episode slips away in favor of its successor, but not for very long!
While this end of September should have offered us a double dose of valkyries, it will ultimately be only one of them that will be available on PS5 and PS4 next Thursday. Don’t panic, Lenneth will be ready before Christmas!
The Valkyrie gets a makeover
It is the latest in the saga, Valkyrie Elysium, who is responsible for reporting the news to us on Twitter. The iconic role-playing game Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, beloved by generations of RPG fans since its debut on the first PlayStation, won’t be making its due date on PS5 and PS4. The porting of the founding episode, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, was expected on September 29 to celebrate the release of Valkyrie Elysium, but Square Enix teams ultimately chose to delay itas this message posted on Twitter indicates.
As we celebrate the upcoming launch of Valkyrie Elysium, we unfortunately need a bit more time for Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth to improve the quality of the title and have decided to move the release date to December 22, 2022. For Those who pre-ordered Valkyrie Elysium Digital Deluxe Edition from PlayStation Store, you will now receive your copy of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on December 22, 2022. Thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing you play Valkyrie Elysium from September 29 and to Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth when it launches on December 22.
A valkyrie can hide another
You will therefore have to wait until December 22 to have the pleasure of exploring the destinies of the protagonists of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. If the reason put forward by Square Enix lies in the need to take a little extra time to improve the quality of this port on the latest Sony consoles, we can consider that this will above all avoid the tendency to compare the episode founder with his successor. Because by clearly abandoning its roots as a pure narrative RPG in favor of a much more action-oriented gameplay, Valkyrie Elysium may not necessarily meet the expectations of eternal fans of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. The title is nonetheless a must for fans of the series who can expect some very interesting surprises from this new opus.
While waiting to know what the software will give in its final version, remember that a generous demo of Valkyrie Elysium is already available for download on the PlayStation Store, without forgetting our preview! What to get an idea of the ambitions of the title which is freed from its origins by many aspects, both visual and narrative or in terms of gameplay orientation.
The message also states that those who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition of Valkyrie Elysium will also have to wait until December 22 to access Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. No insoluble dilemma, therefore, to know which of the two games to start with!
Valkyrie Elysium will be released on September 29 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, then on PC on November 11 via Steam. The PS5 and PS4 port of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth will be available on December 22.
