Valhalla Knights Wii-Bound
10.01.08 - 1:07 PM
While Valhalla Knights 2 for PlayStation Portable hit retail store shelves across the US today, Japanese fans can start looking forward to a third game. Marvelous Interactive today announced Valhalla Knights Eldar Saga for Nintendo Wii. With the game's development already 70% complete, Eldar Saga is set to be available sometime next year. In line with the PlayStation Portable titles, customization is king in the Wii-based game. Players will be able to meticulously customize the protagonist's appearance and parameters. A character's appearance will change depending on his or her equipment.
The game is split into two parts. Players can decide whether they want to go begin in the first or the second part. The advantage of starting in chapter 1 is that it will be possible to import the clear data before playing through chapter 2. On the other hand, at the beginning of chapter 1, players can only pick a male protagonist, whereas sex and race can be altered at the beginning of chapter 2.
Eldar Saga will offer more than 60 different quests. The player's base of operations is a town, where missions can be accepted or mercenaries recruited. Battles will be fought in real-time, with the player controlling the protagonist. Active party members other than the protagonist are controlled by the AI. Last but not least, the game will also offer cooperative play via WiFi Connection.
Valhalla Knights Eldar Saga will be available in Japan sometime next year.
