Norse deities Freyr and Freyja face an army of giant gods In Zangeki no Reginleiv. New screenshots from Nintendo give us a closer look at them.


Zangeki no Reginleiv is set during Ragnarok where a war rages between humans and gods. Freyr and Freyja fight the menacing looking giants with two types of attacks: spells and slashes. Don’t underestimate the power of a sword. In this game slashes can turn giants into a bloody mess.

    I love Sandlot so I’m really, really looking forward to this. (It’s also great that they’ve managed to step into the big leagues courtesy of Nintendo!)

    Screens look pretty low-budget. Also, the map shot looks like it was stretched from 4:3.

    I wonder about our chances of getting this in the west.

      Yeah, I thought it was a PSP game until i saw the Wii tag in the bottom.

  • since when is ragnarok about humasn versus aesir?

    it’s aesir versus their algozes the giants, in which fenrir is matched to take odins life after took tyr life and then the sons and daughters of thor after the burnt of yggdrasil would give origins to the earth and the humans

    • Saturnus

      yeah, Ragnarok was giants vs. gods, and afterward was the start of mankind was it not?

  • I read something somewhere about how this MIGHT be… on-rails. i.e. like Dragon Quest Swords.

    • malek86

      Me too, but they said it might have been a mistranslation. However, it’s difficult to say until someone actually gets their hands on the game.
