    Actually quite saddened by Valkyrie Elysium. Valkyrie Profile on the PS1 was one of the most underrated RPGs in my opinion. The second game had very unique mechanics and was both innovative and fun. Shame the series is now going to be taken down the generic open world hack and slash with minor RPG elements-route that so many are these days but that’s very much SE’s path and current trends so what can you expect really?

    Valkyrie Elysium is not developed by the same people of Valkyrie Profile, it’s a different game, different engine, different gameplay.
    Has anything to do with the franchise? Yes.
    Has anything to do with the acclamated Valkyrie Profile series? No.
    There is another game of the frachise called Valkyrie Anatomia.

    To my taste, it’s actually quite refreshing to see a line-up of trailers like this at least.

    Tenshi chiming in: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle was an incredibly flashy fighter for the PS3 that had a couple of hiccups; namely, it was so flashy to view because of its attention to detail to the source material that the core fighting gameplay was a bit slower than it needed to be. Despite that, it’s still reasonably full-fledged and solid enough to play, and much better than the arena fighter Eyes of Heaven that would come after it.

    This revisit is going to feature explicit changes to the mechanics that will make it less stilted to play; we don’t know a lot yet, but it seems like direct counters and more manual cancels are on the table. The voice cast from the Part 5 and 6 anime will also be coming in to dub the characters that they didn’t before (since the original game came out before those seasons were animated), if you care about that.

    The original game is still available on PS3 and even had a (rare in the States) physical release, so it’s not so much a preservation boon, but this does give a good fighter another chance now that the community that can appreciate it is more widespread, and old fans will get some remuxed mechanics to play with… I wonder how my Josk8 will stack up in the new meta?

      Even though I don’t know the original material myself, it’s great to know they’re using the same voice actors as the anime. I think it helps tremendously with immersion.
