There are a couple Japanese sites reporting that Valkyrie Profile DS has been announced. Can anyone in Japan confirm if it's true? I hear it was announced in Jump magazine.

http://taletalesource.blog69.fc2.com/blog-entry-893.html

That page has most of the details, if anyone is interested. There was another site, but it had what was supposed to be a picture of the article. I don't know if it's real or not, but I don't want to risk it.

According to that page, it's supposedly a new game involving someone named Wilfred and Lenneth? They say it uses a isometric view or whatever similar to Disgaea I guess? Just skimming it quick.

if it's 2d and not a port of the original, my balls will explode
If the screen and information are both real, it's an original game. It uses 2-d sprites, with an isometric view. No sidescrolling in the screen that's online.

Woo, that would be great then, as long as it's not some fucking farm out or something.

I got the PSP version some time back. Not my kind of thing at all. I don't understand why they don't just make an anime movie if they're going to make you sit through 45 minutes of straight cutscenes and "press X".

Hard to imagine the DS version topping it though since it had the CG cutscenes and all the original PS1 stuff as well.

Want want want want want.

I can't remember who Wilfred was in the first (if he was in it?), someone clue me in?

I don't remember him either, maybe he's a new character.

Thought this was about Valkyria Chronicles. /sad
Who cares about games on systems that don't matter.

Edit:
The replies come quick. Hope this new game is good.

Famitsu trailer for next week ?
IF it's real, I would bet on it being the trailer for the unannounced game on the Star Ocean: Second Evolution bonus DVD.

...wut. The game has a very long opening, but the Valkyrie Profile games have some of the greatest dungeons and battle systems out there, they are not just cutscenes.

God I'm freakin psyched. Although I would of course much prefer a PS3 game, as this is an isometric game it's presumably a spinoff so I'll live. I need to find this damn picture <3

Hmm.... this doesn't look like VP. Looks more like VP Tactics.
VP2 already played somewhat like an sRPG. And frankly, with all the Einherjar flying around, it seems a no-brainer to me.

New Valkyrie Profile YESYESYESYESYES

There's a pic somewhere ?

Someone can confirm this game exists ?
There IS a pic. I have a link to it and have it saved, but on the chance that it is real, I'm not posting it, since Japanese scans are banned.

Looks like crap and definitely not the same style of game that VP1 and VP2 is.

So wait, it's confirmed now? (title change)

Oh, tactics game? Ehhhhh. I like tactics games, but I don't think that's what anyone was really wanting from a new VP game.

I'm not sure about the isometric perspective, but I guess tri-Ace realized that the dual screen layout means sidescrollers aren't very efficient. I honestly wish they would've made a new sidescroller for PSP, especially with the original VP and the two Star Oceans pushing the system along.

I didn't really like VP2 taht much (liked VP much better.) Hopefully this one is more fun to play.
