Valkyrie Franchise

The game is part of a franchise that started with Valkyrie Profile, released in North America back in 2000. Like the latest iteration, this one is inspired by Norse mythology focused on the Valkyrie Lenneth. She travels across Midgard collecting souls of slain heroes to serve either as einherjar or her personal companions. Valkyrie Profile was a success both critically and commercially.

In 2006, a prequel titled Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria was released. This one was set 100 years before the first one and is about two characters namely Silmeria and Alicia. Silmeria was one of the Valkyries tasked with getting the souls of brave warriors and bringing them to Valhalla. However, when Silmeria disobeyed Odin, the latter reincarnated her in the body of the Princess of Dipla, Alicia.

After that, there was Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. It’s also set before the original game but follows Silmeria and was released in 2009. Finally, there was Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin, which is still a prequel to the original game. Unlike the previous games, this one was released on Android and iOS.
