Attention Valkyrie Profile enthusiasts! There's a new game that takes place in the Valkyrie universe, called Covenant of the Plume, and it flips the script a little, putting you in the body of a Valkyrie killer called Wylfred. X-Play has a review of the role-playing game for the Nintendo DS.
Reviewer D.F. Smith says:
"Covenant of the Plume takes place in the same world as its predecessors, one loosely based on old northern European mythology. A Valkyrie, for the unfamiliar, is one of the “choosers of the slain,” a goddess who collects the souls of dead to go fight in the armies of the sky-god Odin.
In the console games, the Valkyrie was the heroine, commanding a party of dead warriors. Covenant of the Plume looks at her from a distance, though, through the eyes of a character who doesn’t see a glorious death as anything to be proud of. Wylfred is a young mercenary soldier whose father was killed in battle many years ago. In his mind, his life was ruined when the Valkyrie took his father. So he’s going to find her and kill her."
Sounds like a good, old-fashioned revenge game, doesn't it? So, why not check out the full review and the video here?
