In a new trailer for Valkyrie Elysium, we see plenty of action-based combat, a few of the Einherjar allies the Valkyrie will call upon, as well as some familiar references to Norse Mythology, such as one of the Four Treasures Gungnir, as well as the god-like wolf Fenrir.
Valkyrie Elysium was originally announced in a PlayStation State of Play presentation this past March, and is an action RPG spinoff of the Valkyrie Profile series. Unlike the Valkyrie Profile titles, which were developed by tri-Ace, Valkyrie Elysium is developed by Soleil instead. Characters are designed by Yuya Nagai of CyDesignation, while Motoi Sakuraba returns to compose.
