We’re One Step Closer To Confirming Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One For North America

vpads Nintendo’s officially translated skeleton release schedule says Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is coming out on November 1 in Japan. Yeah, we already know the date, it’s the name that matters. Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seou Mono translates into Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One. So, why is Nintendo calling it Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume? Most likely, very likely, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is going to be the name of the game when it gets released in North America. Square Enix trademarked the Covenant of the Plume subtitle too way back in June when we first speculated it was related to the DS Valkyrie Profile game. Since chances are Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seou Mono is coming to North America I wouldn’t bother importing it unless you have to have it next week.

    Where the hell is Professor Layton 2 in that release list, Nintendo seems not interested in bringing games unless they expect millions of sales, not in need of small profitable games.

  • This is starting to worry me. We will miss out on the Professor Layton games as well as the new Trace Memory? I guess we won’t have a chance at seeing that One Line Attack game either…

    I think Professor Layton “2” is coming. Nintendo just hasn’t bothered to announced it. Don’t forget Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of Korea are *just* publishing the game around now. Sure, the first game was delayed like a year in North America, but it’s still new for the rest of the world which means Nintendo won’t mutter a word about any sequels until the first one saturates other territories. Anyways, if Nintendo, and this is an unlikely if, passes on it someone else will pick the series up. Level 5 owns the rights and all of the trademarks for the Professor Layton series and they shouldn’t have much of a problem finding a publisher for the next game.

    Trace Memory 2 is another story though since that’s a first party published game and a Nintendo franchise.

    Yeah, I’m not too worried about the rest of the Laytons. It’s the IPs that Nintendo actually owns (Disaster, Soma Bringer, Card Hero, Captain Rainbow, etc) that are what we should be worried about.

    @krypt, why in the world would you worry about Trace Memory or One Line Attack at this point?
