Valkyrie Elysium: When the PC Master Race is lost

From releasing games of dubious quality to abandoning Western studios to bet on blockchain, Square Enix has been one of the giants that has come under fire in recent years. However, if there’s one thing the Japanese publisher gets right, it’s that most beloved RPGs are about to be redeemed soon, be it through remakes/remasters. Live A Live, Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered, Dragon Quest III III HD-2D remake the and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunionwhether with unprecedented Valkyrie Elysium.

The fifth chapter of the series was born together with the PlayStation Valkyrie profile, Valkyrie Elysium was announced in March of this year and surprised many people. Aside from the title for mobile devices, which was released in 2016 and discontinued four years later, the series has been somewhat forgotten by the Japanese publisher, but its return is not the only thing worth noting.

Most purists may not like the change, as the new chapter ditches turn-based combat and becomes an RPG, but for a good portion of the community, it’s a necessary evolution. It remains to be seen how the battles will play out, and a new trailer released by Square Enix has served to satisfy that curiosity.

Honestly, what did they show Valkyrie Elysium So far, it’s not too different from what’s been done in Japanese RPGs lately. I hope I’m wrong, but I have a feeling that Soleil’s people don’t have more personality in the game they’re working on.

Anyways… the other news is that this franchise, which everyone will be celebrating, will be appearing on PC for the first time. Since the title is being sold on the platform through Steam, it even got a page there where we can see the price of R$ 249.90 for the regular version (R$ 279.90 for the deluxe). with Portuguese subtitles and is slated for release on November 11, 2022.

By observing this information contained there, we can obtain two important pieces of information. First, those who will play Valkyrie Elysium You will have to wait a little longer for PC, as it will be released on September 29th on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Given the exclusive windows of many games on consoles, I’m sure these weeks won’t be cause for complaints, as what we get on PC is a different story. The problem is that anyone who buys the Deluxe Edition on Sony consoles gets a digital copy Valkyrie Profile: LennethPCs will have mercy on us, trust me… awesome special sword!

I don’t know if the decision was made because the PlayStation creator paid for this version Lenneth (which may come to PC later) or if Sony owns the rights to the game. However, as 2018 has been released for tablets and smartphones, this does not seem to be a problem.

Regardless, it’s sad to see when such a great (and important) add-on is only available to those who purchase the game on one platform or another. I even think if I’m going to do it, it’s on a computer Valkyrie Elysium I only had the standard edition, because calling the other one Deluxe is a bad thing.

But is there reason to be so sorry? a good, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth It’s a remaster of the first game that Square released for the PSP in 2006, bringing several improvements over the first game. For those looking to purchase the Deluxe Edition on PS4/PS5, it will certainly be great to be able to play this title for the first time and on console.

Even if the price of this vitamin edition is considered very salty, it costs R$ 374.50 (regular R$ 299.90), finding a copy of the game for the PSP has become a difficult task, given their low price. wealth. Even on the App Store, this title is not cheap, charging us R$99.90.

For all that, it’s a shame we missed the chance to get a chance at the game Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on the computer. In addition to greatly expanding the audience it can respond to, it’s a platform that can significantly decrease in price over time. Perhaps this scenario will change in the future, but for now PC gamers have reason to complain.
