Marvelous is preparing another Valhalla Knights game, but it isn’t exactly brand new. Valhalla Knights 2: Battle Stance is a revised version of Valhalla Knights 2 which came out in Japan last year. The re-release scheduled to come out on June 25 is said to have a revised battle system. Valhalla Knights 2: Battle Stance will be priced lower than a regular PSP game at 3,990 yen ($40 — remember games are generally more expensive in Japan), but that seems overpriced for an “enhanced” game that came out last year.
This is a case where Marvelous could have released a downloadable expansion pack for Valhalla Knights 2 and charge a 1,000 yen ($10) for it. Selling a game and a updated game later was a business strategy Capcom used for their Monster Hunter series, but Valhalla Knights is far from Monster Hunter’s blockbuster status.
