Remember when we discovered Square Enix trademarked Covenant of the Plume? They just used it. The official soundtrack for Valkyrie Profile DS goes on sale on November 11 and the cover art says Valkyrie Profile – Covenant of the Plume – official soundtrack in plain English. Oh, but in the Japanese text says Valkyrie Profile: Togo wo Seoumono Original Soundtrack or, as translated by Tri-Ace, Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One Original Soundtrack. This is unusual since Square Enix keeps the name for the official soundtracks simple. “Insert game title here” original soundtrack simple. This soundtrack CD doesn’t have the Japanese subtitle anywhere on it.
So Square Enix registers Covenant of the Plume in the USA and connects it to Valkyrie Profile for the DS on the original soundtrack, but leaves out the official Japanese subtitle? Covenant of the Plume has to be the international subtitle for Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seoumono. And if there is an international subtitle we’re getting Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume sometime in English someday.
