Valkyrie Elysium Release Date

Valkyrie Elysium could be rapidly approaching its release window, if recently opened store pages on the PlayStation Network store are accurate. Tipster @Wario64 and Twitter user @Renka_Schedule spotted store pages opening up for the game in English and in Japanese that suggested Valkyrie Elysium‘s release date would fall on September 29, 2022. @Renka_Schedule also uncovered a Japanese trailer marked with the same release date.

The leaked trailer has since been taken down by Square Enix, and the PSN store pages revised to show a “To Be Determined” date. The PlayStation.com game page for Valkyrie Elysium shows a release window of 2022. The official Valkyrie Elysium Twitter account then sent out a post clarifying that the trailer itself will be publicly available to view on July 6, 2022 in Japan.

The trailer displayed voice acting, gameplay, teased story cutscenes from Valkyrie Elysium. The store pages describe the game, which is an action-RPG, and affirm its apparent connection to the Valkyrie Profile series (though they just call it the Valkyrie series). The descriptions confirm that this installment’s Valkyrie is named Lenneth, and is tasked with bringing salvation to the world by selecting mortals to become Einherjar ahead of Ragnarok, the End Times prophesized in Norse mythology.

Players of Valkyrie Elysium will use the Soul Chain system to combo abilities and take down enemies with flashy attacks. They’ll also summon Einherjar for elemental bonuses and gain tactical advantage against their foes. Powerful special techniques are called Divine Arts. The trailer showed one in action, where Lenneth flew into the sky and impaled a large enemy upon a Gungnir, a massive speak. They’ll also be able to upgrade their abilities and weapons to customize their playstyle.

Valkyrie Elysium is in development for PS4 and PS5. Its release date is not confirmed officially, but it may come out on September 29, 2022.
