Enhanced Valhalla Knights 3 Gold Will Add Improvements And New Features

By Sato . November 5, 2013 . 7:40pm

North America and Europe recently got Valhalla Knights 3 on PlayStation Vita last month. Meanwhile, Japan is getting an the enhanced Valhalla Knights 3 Gold early next year, featuring additional story parts, improved load time and battle speed, according to this week’s Famitsu magazine.

 

In Valhalla Knights 3 Gold, the Red Light District, where players can recruit female party members along with side-quests, will be getting a new facility called “Erotica Heaven”. Additionally, the enhanced version of the game will be adding two new races of Angels and Demons.

 

In addition to the already existing 20 job classes such as Ninja and Amazoness, they’ll be adding Gunner and four other classes to the game.

 

When Valhalla Knights 3 was released by Xseed Games outside of Japan, they’ve already included the online multiplayer option, unlike the original Japanese version which only featured ad-hoc connectivity. In Valhalla Knights 3 Gold, Japanese players will finally be able to play via WiFi, along with the newly introduced co-op and versus modes.

 

Valhalla Knights 3 is slated for release on February 27, 2014, for PlayStation Vita. You can read our playtest of the original game here.

      Get over here bro! (I know that FEELS.)

    • Sentsuizan_93

      …….Did you buy it?

      • TheExile285

        I was going to when it got cheaper. Now I’m conflicted >_>

        Also, XSEED could have waited for this version and localized something else.

  • Kris

    I wonder if characters will blink this time…

    In all honesty, I think that VK could be cool if they improved the combat and took the premise in a different direction, but… Erotica Heaven isn’t exactly what I thought the game was missing. :P

    • Shippoyasha

      Erotica Heaven could work if they make it cute and fun. While before, it just looked like the charaters and player make out or have sex off screen, which might have felt awkward for some players.

  • doubleO7

    Its a good thing I didn’t buy the english version yet. I guess I’ll wait for Xseed to bring over this one.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      That eternity long wait

      • Lucky Dan

        It reminds of how I completed the game an eternity long time after 30 hrs of grinding.

    • revenent hell

      I kind of think that’s maybe not going to happen anytime real soon if at all.
      While it would be nice to get the new stuff, bare in mind I have played VK3, I have to say I cant really see even with the additions to it, it being worth the effort to Xseed to release this..
      It might happen…… But I just wouldn’t hold my breath for it.
      I enjoyed the game as im sure many others have but frankly I cant imagine there’s to many people willing to buy this version after playing the original one. It would probably be at a loss for Xseed if they did.
      The game is …ok its not stellar but its not complete poop either, but from my experience its not a game I can clearly imagine people wanting to rebuy for the few added tidbits.

      Eh, I could be wrong though.

      • shadowind

        Look at it this way, if XSeed can bring out the Ace version of Ragnarok Odyssey then I can’t see why they can’t bring out the Gold version of Valhalla Knights 3.

        • revenent hell

          I was thinking of that myself. It was actually funny to me at the time, I think it was a few weeks after they released Ragnarok Odyssey that they announced they would bring over ACE…. I wondered why they even bothered to do the original given this was announced so quickly after…..

          • Vash bane

            when does ace release again? its been quite awhile since I heard anything

          • revenent hell

            Feb 18, 2014…
            The more I think a bout getting it the more I just want to save the money hmmm

          • Vash bane

            lol wait feb … the same month 2 other games I want come out -_-

            my wallet is not happy

            on topic:i visited a few sites after coming here that said that you original save can also be used for this version and (negative) a few sites said this version was Jp only
            (I was planning to buy the original after I finish 2 XD)

    The load times in this game are so frustrating…. Ive spent more time looking at the loading screen than actually moving around. Does there honestly have to be a load for every door you pass threw?…. I Never really minded loading times in games before but this game has just way to many of them literally every five seconds or so depending on if your doing quests in the castle or just shopping or collecting people to be in your gang….. I honestly don’t understand the need for so many loads in this day and age of gaming.

    I would rather have one long load when going into the castle and then not having it load every time you go threw a door or want to go shopping IT IS IRKSOME and time consuming.

    Also I must say im also a little sadden that gender doesn’t matter, everyone still treats you as if you are a guy. Ive been called Him on multiple occasions when doing quests and such.

    While I think its AWESOME in games to not be discriminating toward a gamer based on a persons orientation and what they choose to do with their character I find it irritating here that the story line cant even bring itself to reflect that your playing as a female when NPC’s are addressing you. It would have been nice at a minimum to at least have things like that acknowledged. And while I personally wouldn’t have wanted to play the rubdown mini game thing with a guy in the starring roll it would have been nice to have something added beyond just giving them gifts to raise their affection (I just think it would have been a nice addition of something like playing a game of cards or something with the guy, it wouldn’t be fan servicey but a little something added in would have been cool).

    Also the starting choices for the character customization are horribly pathetic. I know its not a very advanced game an all but having so few choices at the start of the game was odd to me, since most games I’ve played where you can create your character gave a ton of options down to your complete body type not just the bust size….. The way the customization was talked about prior to the games release made me expect a lot more than what was given.

    Yes, it has dirt, paint ,tattoo’s and makeup but at the start of the game the options given are so few its kind of comical and when you finally get options to change how you look with the few added options in there its almost not worth the price early on because frankly merely talking to someone costs money and repeatedly killing the same stuff for hours on end does get more than a little boring just to change a minor this or that which wouldn’t be necessary if they had actually given a decent amount of options to begin with.

    Overall I do and have enjoyed the game for what it is but I think im more or less unpleased at how it was implied what a great “customization” features it had before its release when they are seriously the base of basic at the start. The loading times are to often and should be cut by at least 75% and even though my character has boobies its obviously a hermaphrodite because for most parts of the game I still get referred to, if not by name, as a “him”.

    THAT LOAD TIME…

    • Virevolte

      I love loading times. I use them to drink my cup of tea or cola.
      …but, yeah. I’m going to pass an awful lot of time in the restroom with this one. :/

  • Brimfyre

    This game needs a Butterface Patch.

  • Shirayuri

    Seriously.. Just bought this game recently.. No way i’m putting down another $40 for such small features that should’ve been in the game in the first place.. Can’t see why this isn’t DLC..

  • divinelite

    and the most jarring and most needed to improve : graphics and no-expression problem doesn’t touched even a little???
    30 hours into the game and it’s enough…

  • cyberkinghardy

    Another “screen-rubbing” sequel? A must-buy for me. I don’t know why others hate the game. I did enjoy the grinding.

  • Randgriz

    NOOOOOOOOO i just got this game.. cant they update the existing one with a patch?

    • Seraph

      Or just as good, offer people who bought the original game the newer version for a lot cheaper, or extra bonuses?

      As of late, I have a feeling that most Japanese developers believe in patches in terms of content.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

    Good thing I didnt touch 3, it looked bad to begin with. Maybe this will be better.

  • fairysun

    “Newly introduced co-op” …. hmmmm

  • http://www.themogblog.com/ Edward Walton

    Nope. Gonna platinum the first one and forget about it. I don’t appreciate looking up every few weeks to find out there’s a new version coming out. Does wonders on me buying future titles.

    • revenent hell

      Why bother making new games when they can just improve upon what they already have out? Think of all the money it saves not starting from scratch!

      • http://www.themogblog.com/ Edward Walton

        Not even sure if that’s sarcasm or not which hinders my judgement in making a proper reply.

        • revenent hell

          It was sarcasm towards developers.
          Since I buy A LOT of niche tittles ive been noticing as of late how a game will come out and less than a month later a newer upgraded version is out…. Its a little ridiculous.

          The only game im considering rebuying would be Ragnarok Ace but that depends on how much overall the DLC is in comparison to just buying the new game

  • Vash bane

    ah come on another version so soon … with add ons? pls time their not going to bust out a burst with this?

    (I…i’m confused now I really want this game and don’t feel like waiting any more … my vita wants to be touched .. lol that sounds kinda dirty “ahem”)

  • Vash bane

    sorry to double post :3

    but I went to another site that said

    “The original Valhalla Knights 3′s save data can be used in this version”

    im curious what the “Erotica Heaven” is I know it sounds self explanatory but seeing as I don’t have the game yet… um … yeah
