Valis II Scrolls On To PlayStation Network On March 16

valis2Before she received the legendary Valis sword, Yuko was an ordinary schoolgirl. She’s even wearing her uniform while fighting a monster, but that’s besides the point. When side-scrolling action games were all the rage Telenet Japan created the Valis series.

 

Valis II takes place in our world, which has been overrun beasts. The game was first released on the MSX and ported with upgraded graphics to the TurboGrafx-16′s CD system.

 

On March 16, you’ll be able to get Valis II on PlayStation Network in the Game Archives folder. The digital re-release is PSP and PS3 compatible and it just costs 800 yen ($9.60). Far East of Eden II, another TurboDuo game, is on deck for 800 yen and Galaga ’88 is just 600 yen ($7.25) since it was a HuCard game.

 

Sunsoft now holds the rights to many Telenet series now so we probably won’t see anything like the most recent Vali… ah nevermind!

    Valis III is one of my favorite games. Ever.

    I’m buying this the minute it comes out in hopes that they release my baby on the PSN.

    Valis II? I’d rather they release Valis III, it’s a much better game.
