Square Enix launched a new trailer showcasing their upcoming JRPG Valkrie Elysium, featuring new characters, combat gameplay, and narrative elements.
Please refer below for the official game description via the PlayStation Store:
This action RPG incorporates the series' signature Einherjar and combo systems, allowing players to enjoy speedy, three-dimensional combat. The game's unique art style beautifully depicts a collapsing world as Ragnarok looms, with series veteran Motoi Sakuraba returning to enrich the title with an unforgettable soundtrack.
Story: Long ago, Ragnarok—the End Times—loomed upon the realms. The All-Father Odin, with the last of his strength, created an emissary of redemption, Valkyrie; her sole task being the salvation of a doomed world.
High-Speed Action RPG: Effortlessly soar through the battlefield and perform high-speed actions with the new Soul Chain system. Utilize a wide array of abilities and skills at the Valkyrie’s disposal to unleash devastating combos.
Einherjar: Summon Einherjar – strong warrior spirits selected by the Valkyrie – to aid you in battle! Summoning Einherjar imbues the Valkyrie with elemental bonuses, giving players a tactical advantage in battle.
Combo & Divine Arts System: The “Arts Gauge” fills as players perform a J19 continuous stream of attacks and maintain combos. Consuming the Arts Gauge enables the Valkyrie to perform powerful, special techniques known as Divine Arts.
Upgrade and Customization Features: Upgrade your weapons, skills, and Einherjar/Divine Arts combos to customize your playstyle.
Valkrie Elysium is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 on September 29, 2022 and PC via Steam on November 11, 2022.
