So, it's real then? PS2, 2006. Apparently you play as another valkyrie named Sylmeria. You can see a bit of the VP logo, but in blue now, and that's clearly VP's character artist.

I'm still amazed by the first one... I hope it keeps the same "magic" that made the first one so memorable.

... I still think VP is one of the gratest RPGs I've ever played.

Damn it, I want to be happy but seeing how it looks just makes me too skeptical. Most of VP's appeal for me was its stylized presentation and perspective. Without that I'll just have to hope they made the admittedly dull gameplay more interesting. Argh, optimism where are you?

I know this sounds snotty, but if you're mostly just into the presentation, then you're not a "real" fan anyway. I don't mean that like an insult though, just like you're not really into it. Like I play every Tales game, but I wouldn't call myself a "real" Tales fan.

Anyway, I liked pretty much everything about Valkyrie Profile. The story, the presentation, the graphics, the music, the system...but in many ways the battle system hasn't aged well. I still think it's a brilliant system, but at first I had to play the Japanese one because the dub bothered me, and then I couldn't even play that because everything took too damned long.

Buuut...I hope they do something similar again, since I was thrilled with the moderately similar Namco X Capcom system.

I still really like VP's battle system myself. I disliked all the strange spots in the story, where things would just end halfway through, and the slow pacing kind of gets you down after a while... but if you can get through that it's 100% gold...

As long as you can go through the stories a bit faster, I'll be happy. Sometimes the pace would slow to a crawl...

Maybe I'm not a "real" fan, but I did like the game all the same. Can't I lament it when a game with some incredible 2D visuals gets turned into a more pedestrian 3D style? Granted, what I've seen doesn't look terrible, but it doesn't look so different from a lot of Squenix's other stuff.

I think I'm just worried how VP's largely 2D design will make the transition to this new style. Maybe I'm just thinking too far ahead, but I have a hard time imagining the platforming and battles and all in 3D without feeling kind of underwhelmed. I guess I'm the only one.

Considering that we know jack and squat about the game outside of that tiny magazine scan telling us... well, that there will be 3D graphics, I think you are thinking too much.

Assuming it's real. The scan appears legit, but it looks like almost nothing (and in fact that Valkyrie art there could be ripped-off and I wouldn't be able to tell).

Honestly I don't think picking up where the other left off would do the game a whole lot of good, considering there isn't much to Norse mythology AFTER Ragnarok. If anything I predict an alternative telling of Ragnarok.

....

So, if Lenneth is in this one, who do you figure would be the secret bosses this time (beside the two angels)? Drag-up Fayt and Luther for another round?

Well, you said the system was dull, so maybe putting it in 3D will put an interesting new spin on it.

I don't really disagree with you, though. In the end, I would probably prefer a high resolution 2D sequel, but I can't say anything yet, and I don't believe that different is necessarily bad. So...as long as their heart is in what they do, I'm sure I'll be satisfied. Well, that, and the great 2D was only part of why I liked VP. It's not like you can't achieve beauty and style in 3D.

Personally I think the beauty of the VP battle system was its simplicity. I hope they don't junk it up with too muich stuff since I really hated Radiata Story's lame battle system with incredibly cheap enemy attacks. Admitedly VP made the guts move required in the later parts of the game but the chances of that activating on at least one of your party members was good.

Why? I have no reason to complain. Even if I prefer 2D I don't hate 3D at all...

What I hate is 3D VS with 2D gameplay.
I like 3D VS like Tekken or VF, but not those like SFex or KOF Mi...

But VP2 being 3D isn't a problem for me...

The game tells the events that led the 2nd sister of Leneth to the state she is in the first VP (in other words, a prequel/spinoff happenning several hundreds of years before VP).

Let's face it : you can't make a game happening after Ragnarok.
Also, I think I remember the whole scenario of the 3rd Valkyrie being left open on purpose, like a window open in case they wanted to make another VP.

All in all, I'm really hyped with this.

I agree but quite frankly I'd rather them make an entirely new game in the same style as VP (similar art, battle system and reqruiting) with a different story and universe than do a prequel. I hate them because no matter what happens in the next game, the ending will be "You get stuck in a block of ice. The End."

Considering that VP's take on Norse Mythology was wrong on a lot of fronts they could continue after the game with that Valkyrie which wouldn't really conflict with how they ended the last game. Half the villains are still running around on some level combined with some other dangling plot points.

Either way I will still buy it and I'm totally psyched.

While the platforming elements of the first game could be done reasonably well in 3D, I can't say I can see the beautiful simplicity (yet still surprisingly deep and extremely satisfying) combat of the original translating well into 3D. :|

I... actually don't give a crap about the story. I like the originality of the first one with its depresing characters and settings, as well as the decent story (that was waaaay too hard to get without an FAQ), but I thought it all took a backseat to the battle system and the platforming. With the exception of Xenogears, no other game just sucked me right in from the first word go liek VP did, and that was because it was just TOO MUCH FUN. No other game gave you the impression that you were beating the living hell out of enemies liek VP did. If they can replicate the sheer genius of that combat with awesome character attacks and combos, spiced up with some nice platforming stuff, then I could care less about the story.

I agree. I will end up being very disappointed if they just take the setting along with some characters and jam it into a SO3 or Radiatta Stories styled battle system. I think they can pull off something like VPs battle system and platforming well in 3D but I hope that they keep it simple and dont try to revolutionize the formula and it turns into a clunky game where you control one character and your retarded team mates get themselves killed.

Oh man, you have not played Record of Lodoss War for the DC.

There are these wonderful boots that make you really hard to knock down... but they issue this LOUD clanging noise with each step. The step step step of Ys is nothing compared to the CLANG CLANG CLANG of those. Eventually, you have to decide whether you will just equip the silent boots, or turn off the audio.

I'm sure many people have. Build up your characters to high levels (best characters to use are the Seraphic Gate characters, though I've used Angrim as well), equip the strongest weapons, and have Level 8 Auto Item/Guts/Angel Curio x 2 defense going, and just chain away.

Yeah I hope in VP2 they do away with the end game bosses requiring the guts move. That was kinda unfair seeing it was entirely up to luck.

Well it goes for around $50-100 on ebay. Stores like babbages sell it used for more or less retail at $39.99 if they get it in which is rare.

It's not up to Suikoden 2 levels of being stupidly overpriced but getting it for $10 would be pretty lucky outside finding it at a flea market or something.

true, true, you'll be hard-pressed to find it cheaper than even $80 on ebay and damn lucky at a retail store for half that....then again, you could just download it...ahem, anyway i'm also excited about this news. i never finished the first game because disc 2 looked like it got into a fight with a wolverine and lost, but now i'm really tempted to complete it. i really enjoyed the 2d graphics, so i'm a little peeved that it's 3d, but the gameplay can still be like that of the first in both 2d or 3d. i can't make out any gameplay screenshots from the scan, so we'll have to wait and see, but as long as they keep it simple and addicting just like the first game, then i'll be satisfied

Yeah, at least the game will use the widescreen and won't be shown in a window in the center of the screen.
It's more of a remake than, say, bokujo monogatari.

So the game will be shown at the jump fiesta the 17 and 18 of this month.

The game will change his anime part fro CG scenes, like in FF games.

And most important, games system may be the same as before!! Since when you're in the normal phase your characters have serious 3D graphisms (like FF12,) but when you are in a battle phase your characters are turned into SD and they are in a similar battle scenes from those of VP1...

Great!!

re: Guts

> Yeah I hope in VP2 they do away with the end game bosses requiring the guts move. That was kinda unfair seeing it was entirely up to luck.

The problem was two-fold: You practically *needed* Level 8 Guts, plus all that other crap, to survive at the end, but on the other hand, Guts made the game too *easy*. Level 8 Guts plus 2 Angel Curios on all characters gave you something like a 1 in 3096 of actually losing (i.e. all 4 of your characters getting KOed). But in the Seraphic Gate, the boss attacks were so goddamned strong, you just kept dying over and over and over, making death lose all meaning.

What I hope for in VP2 is your defense to be more balanced, so that you don't just get slaughtered repeatedly.

Oh, and while I would love to see VP done in non-SD format, I guess VP's SD was pretty well done, so it can stay at that level.

I wonder if the likes of Fayt, Maria or Cliff will show up?

I agree with this entirely. It became battles where you had to eventually get lucky and hope enough of your characters would GUTS and live so you could set up a chain, otherwise you had to start reviving and healing. Either way you'd rarely lose but it just made the bosses take forever.

And thanks for the new scan Rid. It looks like they captured the style of the last game in 3D which is all I could hope for.

Darn, I must admit this new VP looks as neat as did the old one in its time...

Heck, Im beginning to consider retaking PSXs Valkyrie Profile for the 10th time and try to get past Argrinms story once for all! I dunno why, but even though VP seems to have enough elements to catch me up (interesting scenario, promising plot, good music, eye-catching character designs...), I cant get myself into it.

Anyway, I must confirm Hayatos wacky theory about Norns as the three valkiries in the game, so I guess Ill gather more courage and confront the task before Christmas. Yup, this would be my alibi this time!

I unfortunately fall in that same category of never quite getting past Angrim's story. At the time I hadn't quite grasped the system fully yet, and I remember it being terribly slow-paced.

I do admit, I kinda hoped the sequel would have SD models in battle like the first - there was just something about having these tragic and angsty characters being super-deformed in battle that was great...

They say it's the same system, but they added "new features" to make it even better.

Also, instead of shooting ice bolts, she shoots light bolts that apparently have an effect when she shoots them to ennemies.
