The success of the Wii has landed the platform yet another franchise. Valhalla Knights, now with two installments on the PSP, is making the move over to Nintendo's console through Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga. Famitsu has a first report.
Eldar Saga tells the story of a world in a panic with the revival of magic thought long dead. Many lives are lost until four races, human, elf, dwarf, and hobbit, form a commonwealth whose armies push the magic to the far western land of Eldar.
The game is split into two chapters. You're free to select which chapter you'd like to start off with, and once you've cleared this, you go on to the next chapter, carrying your data over to the new quest.
You play as a character of your own creation. The game lets you set hair style and color, job, and other parameters like strength, vitality, intelligence, luck, and dexterity. Your choice of weapons also affects your character, with visible changes to your appearance.
Strangely, you're not able to set your race or gender initially. The game defaults to a male human for the first chapter. Once you get to the second chapter, however, you can select to be a female and choose from four races.
Famitsu didn't manage to get details on the game's battle system, but did note that the action feel of the battles appears to be retained with this new installment, and perhaps even heightened. The game will now put players in battle with some giant beasts.
Also, as a big bonus for players who don't like to play alone, the game will support Wi-Fi Connection for cooperative play. Two players will be able to team up.
Developed by K2, and featuring music by Motoi Sakuraba, Valhalla Knights Eldar Saga will be released in Japan through Marvelous Entertainment some time in 2009.
