Valkyrie Elysium releasing on September 29 for PS5 and PS4, November 11 for PC


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 the salvation of a doomed world. And thence began the tale of a new Valkyrie.

About —In an unjust world, what will you choose?—

Valkyrie Elysium is the latest title in the Valkyrie series that depicts the “death of humankind” and “the existence of gods” with a unique worldview based on Norse mythology. Motoi Sakuraba’s masterful tracks enhance the new Valkyrie world drawn in high end graphics. As the first action RPG of its series, it retains the familiar special attacks and combo system while taking it to the next level with a new three-dimensional, fast paced battle system.

Characters Valkyrie (voiced by Holli Dempsey in English, Akari Kitou in Japanese) “If the will to fight still lingers within you, then accept my offer and join me.” The protagonist of this title. Summoned by Odin to save the world, she is tasked with the mission of purifying the souls roaming Midgard. Odin (voiced by Michael Shaeffer in English, Kenjiro Tsuda in Japanese) “I, Odin the All-Father, command you… Become my tool of intervention, and save this world from doom.” The supreme god of all things. He is unable to move freely after being injured in battle with Fenrir. Fenrir (voiced by Kate Kennedy in English, Ryuusei Nakao in Japanese) “So we meet at last, little Valkyrie. Oh, how I have longed for this moment…” Harbors an immense hatred towards Odin and pulls strings behind the scenes in order to take everything from him. ??? “Oh, you poor soul. Well, if you wish to die, I am happy to oblige!” A mysterious woman who appears in the way of Valkyrie and her cohorts time and time again. She is clad in black armor, but also appears to be a Valkyrie…
