Square Enix drops a teaser trailer for the classic RPG, “Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.” It appears that Square Enix intends to remaster or relaunch the game and bring it to next gen consoles. Valkyrie Profile originally released in 1999 for the PlayStation by Enix and tri-Ace, and received critical and commercial success. The title was later ported to the PlayStation Portable under the title “Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth” in 2006. This would lead to two more “Valkyrie Profile” titles: a 2006 PlayStation 2 prequel, titled Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, released in 2006 in Japan and North America and 2007 in Europe, and another prequel titled Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, released for the Nintendo DS in Japan in 2008, March 17, 2009 in North America and on April 3, 2009 in all PAL regions. The games are based on Norse mythology and star a Valkyrie named Lenneth who travels through Midgard, collecting the souls of slain heroes to serve either as einherjar or her personal companions for Ragnarok – the battle to decide the fate of all creation – and trains them by fighting monsters and performing additional quests.
Square Enix also launched a Twitter account for the game.
