Star Ocean 5's Producer Has A Proposal Written Up for Valkyrie Profile 3
"To my side my noble einherjar." Remember that line?
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen an entry in the Valkyrie Profile series, with the last game Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume releasing in 2009 for the Nintendo DS. With another Square Enix series game (Star Ocean) coming back soon, Star Ocean 5’s producer hopes there might be a chance for another Valkyrie Profile.
During a Dengeki Online livestream Shuichi Kobayashi, Star Ocean 5’s producer, talked about this hope. A Dengeki staff asked him about the series after they featured BGM from Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria that’s in Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
It was revealed that the reason we have yet to see Valkyrie Profile 3 is due to the market's interests and Kobayashi noted that much of the possibility of a new Valkyrie Profile game would rely on the sales of Star Ocean 5. After being told that the game might have a rough time on the market, he hopes people will show support for similar titles.
“If only people started playing all kinds of different games, then there might be a way for it to survive. Honestly speaking, I have written proposal plans for Valkyrie Profile 3 on my computer. Hurry and let me show it already!”
Well, we probably won’t see Valkyrie Profile 3 anytime soon. I would be certainly interested on it if Square-Enix will make it. The last Valkyrie Profile game that I've played was Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, and I've never gotten to finish the first game. Here's hoping that Star Ocean 5 will sell well so that it could increase the likelihood that Valkyrie Profile 3 may be developed. How about you guys, would you like to see another entry in the Valkyrie Profile series?
