Valhalla Knights 3 Goes A-Questing On PS Vita In October

If you're up for a deep, action-packed RPG for the PlayStation Vita, pay attention.

XSEED Games has announced that Valhalla Knights 3 will release in North America exclusively for Sony's portable in October. They also outlined the seven playable races with which we can experiment.

This is actually the fourth Valhalla Knights title published by XSEED Games, and it features multiplayer-based combat and a robust character creation mechanic. The NA version will also feature a Wi-Fi online option, which will be available in addition to the local ad hoc option. Each of the aforementioned seven races are quite distinct, and you'll also be able to select from 20 job classes (such as Fighter, Mage, Thief, Archer, Priest, Prisoner, etc.). You can go questing with a custom party or you can strike out on your own; it's entirely up to you. Me, I'm the lone wolf type.

The playable races are: Humans, which are "emotionally unstable" but they also boast determination and adaptability and are considered generalists rather than specialists; Elves, which are good with magic and are physically fit; Halflings, which are small but specialize in theft and stealth; Dwarves, which are industrious and powerful; Beasts, which are all about up-close-and-personal combat, Nightmares, which can't deal with physical pain but have "phenomenal spell-casting talents;" and Machines, which are clumsy and awkward, but can absorb damage like nobody's business.

Which will you choose?

Trying to fill the giant Monster Hunter gap maybe?

Well, they also announced Monster Hunter for the Vita at TGS, so I don't think it's so much as trying to fill that gap.

Played both 1 and 2, shows promise but was kinda "meh". Hope they surprise us this time, cuz it really can be awesome if well done.

Hope they are better quality than the last 2. Didn't play a lot of either, but was not impressed by what I did play.

It has a lot of the elements I look for, they just aren't usually implemented very well.

Can't wait, I loved the original(even though it was very grindy and stale on the story) Didn't play the 2nd one but this one looks very promising. My original PS Vita got stolen, but when I rebuy 1 this will probably be my 1st game.

Dude, if a franchise that thus far has collected metascores in the 50-range now is to be considered "very promising" for the Vita it tells in spades what state of affair the Vita is in.

Go ahead and knock me, but I really don't like rpg characters with oversexualized and oversized, chested females. There's plenty of ways to make a female characters sexy without pumping those balloons to maximum power.

On the other hand, that's a lot of class to choose from. It may bring more replay value. I actually recently got the Vita, and to be honest, atm, it has more games than I can handle. PS Plus is AWESOME.
