Ragnarök—the End Times—loomed upon the realms.
The All-Father Odin, with the last of his strength, created an emissary of redemption, Valkyrie; her sole task the salvation of a doomed world.
And thence began the tale of a new Valkyrie.
As the first action RPG in the series, the battles have evolved to become intuitive and three-dimensional. Along with Einherjar who fight alongside Valkyrie, familiar special moves from the series and combo systems are still in place. On top of this, new elements have been added to allow players to enjoy a variety of action packed and engaging battles.
