Square-Enix had a video lined up, ready for consumption by fans of the Valkyrie Profile franchise, one dedicated to the upcoming release of the franchise’s newest title, Valkyrie Elysium, but unfortunately, the PlayStation Store has let slip the news a bit too soon. Valkyrie Elysium will be coming to PS5, PS4, and PC on September 29, 2022. Valkyrie Elysium was announced during PlayStation’s March State Of Play showcase with the promise of a late 2022 release, so this new piece of news aligns with the already established news, while PSN rarely has its details input incorrectly.
For those unaware with Valkyrie Elysium, here’s the need-to-know, direct from the Square-Enix:
