‘Ruthless’ Defines Medieval Action RPG Series’ Latest Entry, Testing Players’ Skill, Morality and Competitive Edge with Network Play and Leaderboard Features.
“Valhalla Knights 3 is one of the toughest games in our portfolio,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games. “Players are going to be seriously challenged and have fun with this one, which is why we felt it was necessary to incorporate the online features and leaderboard system. We’re also very pleased to bring the game to fans in Europe, especially so close to the North America launch.”
Valhalla Knights 3 forces players to carry out the criminal underground’s dirty work as they search for a long-lost legendary treasure in an immoral world, where the only way to survive is to fulfill quests against their heroic nature in the medieval prison Carceron. Players will begin by creating a fully customizable main character and allied party members, choosing from one of seven races, including Human, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling, Machine, Beast and Nightmare, and from one of up to seven basic job classes such as Fighter, Mage, Thief and Priest, with up to 20 total job classes unlockable or accessible as downloadable content.
Morality is not the only challenge players will face in Valhalla Knights 3 - on their journey, players will engage in nonstop action-heavy real-time battle, utilizing their customized party of up to seven characters. Players control any one party member at a time, and can choose to either issue commands to their allies or switch characters on the fly and take command themselves. With 200-plus quests and over 500 in-game items, weapons, armor and special goods, Valhalla Knights 3 promises players over 40 hours of basic gameplay, with many more for the completionists. For those who want to go beyond the single-player campaign, XSEED Games has added online connectivity on top of the game’s original ad-hoc two-player versus mode for its North American and European release, so fans can play against each other online no matter how far apart they are.
Valhalla Knights 3 was developed in Japan by MarvelousAQL Inc., for PS Vita and is published by XSEED Games in North America and Europe. Available now in North America, the digital launch in Europe will follow closely on October 23, 2013. Valhalla Knights 3 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB for North America and PEGI 16 for Europe.
