Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth now available for Android and iOS devices in the US
Valkyrie Profile is a role-playing game for the PlayStation consoles that was released in late December 1999 in Japan, while the North American market got it the following year, at the end of August. Six years later, it was released for the PlayStation Portable as Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. Now, this title is finally available in the US for both Android and iOS.
For the refreshed mobile version of the game, Square Enix added the following: smartphone-optimized HD graphics, multiple control schemes (including partial gamepad support), autosave and quicksave capabilities, auto-battle combat option. The story remains the same as in the original game, involving "a divine war that would come to rage across the lands of men, heralding the coming of the end of the world" based on Norse Mythology.
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth has a rather steep price of US$15.99 for both Android and iOS. Even more, various in-game items are also available for prices between US$4 and US$9. The Android version of the game requires Android 4.4 KitKat or later, while the iOS version needs iOS 8.0 or later. The game is rated 9+ for infrequent/mild cartoon or fantasy violence, so even third-graders should be allowed to play it — as long as they don't start buying boosters without their parents knowing it, of course.
