The newest issue of Famitsuu featured an interview with Square Enix producer Wataru Katou (who had previously worked on Valkyrie Profile Lenneth and the PlayStation Portable versions of Star Ocean 1 and 2) and tri-Ace's Shunshuke Katsumoto. With only two months until the Japanese release of Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seou Mono (The Accused One), the interview's main topic naturally was the Valkyrie Profile series' first DS-based installment. That being said, the two producers also hinted at the popular series appearing on a hardware platform other than the DS in the future. They asked fans to look forward to some "interesting developments on another hardware platform" in the future.
As for Toga wo Seou Mono, the game is set to feature about as many endings as the original Valkyrie Profile. Branches in the storyline will determine which characters will join your party. The powerful magic feather protagonist Wilfred wields will play a key role in determing which branch the player will proceed on. While the producers mentioned the existence of a free map-like battle field, players can only clear this map once. In other words, it won't be possible to re-visit one map again and again to level up your party.
Valkyrie Profile: Toga wo Seou Mono will be available in Japan on October 2nd for 4,800 yen ($43.73 US).
