XSEED Games Ships Valhalla Knights

XSEED Games announced today that VALHALLA KNIGHTS has shipped to retailers across North America. Exclusively for the PlayStation Portable, this original title created by Marvelous and development team K2, boasts stunning graphics and real-time, action-packed battles. It allows players to see and avoid monsters on the field map before engaging them and seamlessly switching to tactical team combat on the battle screen.

The Story

A place that was forgotten from history, where humans, elves, dwarfs, halflings and other various races lived together in harmony... it was a paradise, surrounded by deep green forests and crystal clear streams. However, the roar of the demons tore apart their peaceful lives. It was the return of the Dark Lord, the previous ruler of the land, which sparked a new round of battles which would eventually encompass all the races. After years of fierce fighting, the Dark Lord was sealed away by the hands of the hero, Rastul. But from the blood of the demons, the land had been cursed and the sky lost its light. The cursed land entrapped the people, making every waking moment feel like an eternity. Eventually the land once known as a paradise came to be known as "The Cursed Land." One day, a youth wakes up in this land. In this land full of despair, the youth searches for his/her lost memory. What lies ahead are the discovery of his/her memories and the future of this forsaken land.
