Today Square Enix must be in a teasing mood, as they just released a really interesting teaser trailer for a project named Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.
The trailer explains nothing, but the description of the video mentions “the Goddess will come in 2018.” The trailer itself includes a “coming soon” at the end.
All we know for the moment is that Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is the title of the enhanced port for PSP released in 2006 of the original Valkyrie Profile for the original PlayStation, which saw the light in 1999.
At the moment, we don’t know whether this is a remake, a remaster, or something else entirely. We don’t even know which platform it’s aimed at. Even the accompanying press release is of no help, just mentioning that further information will come at a later time.
All we can do is watch the trailer below (alongside artwork that was used for the project’s Twitter account) and wait for further information.
Interestingly, the trailer mentions original character designers Kou and Yoh Yoshinari, and original composer Motoi Sakuraba. The original voice of Lenneth Yumi Touma also appears.
Just for the sake of speculation, CEO Yosuke Matsuda recently mentioned that Square Enix intends to be proactive in rebooting older titles for the Switch. On the other hand, the latest remake, Secret of Mana, has recently been launched for PS4 and PS Vita. We also just got a port of Chrono Trigger for PC.
In 2016, the publisher released a mobile game belonging to the franchise, Valkyrie Anatomia, which is still active in Japan.
All I can say about this is: please don’t play with my heart, Square Enix. Just don’t.
