Following leaked Jump Magazine images from last week, Square Enix today made the new DS installment of the Valkyrie Profile series officially known, and even shared a few screens and pieces of artwork.
As we reported last week, this new entry in one of Square Enix's most critically acclaimed franchises is fully titled Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seou Mono. This surname is currently being unofficially translated around the web as "The Accused." We reserve the right to tack on a "One" to the end of that title depending on how many people are actually being accused.
Aside from the screenshots, we don't have too much in the way of details on the game. The word "toga" will reportedly play a major role in the game's storyline and gameplay systems. No, that doesn't mean everyone will be walking around in togas. "Toga" here is the Japanese word for "fault," as in, "It's all your toga!" Although we don't recommend mixing in Japanese words with your English, because it makes you sound like a jerk.
Fans of the Valkyrie Profile series can rest assured that developer tri-Ace is once again heading up the development effort on this title. Although the viewing perspective now appears to be 3/4 overhead, the game is said to maintain the strategic, high-paced battle system for which the developer is known.
Looking to get an early glimpse? Recently, Square Enix announced a bonus item for the PSP version of Star Ocean 2, due for Japanese release in April. The bonus item is a DVD that will contain footage of tri-Ace developed games like Star Ocean 4 and Infinite Undiscovery. Also included is footage of one game that was unannounced when the bonus item was unveiled. Although Square Enix hasn't officially announced so, we're going to speculate that the mystery footage is from the new Valkyrie Profile game.
