An exact Valkyrie Elysium release date along with a new trailer and a few screenshots have been leaked, and the release is sooner than what the fans expected.
One of Square Enix’s relatively mysterious retro series is the Valkyrie Profile series. Valkyrie Profile, which debuted late on the PlayStation 1 in 1999, gained immense appreciation from gamers around the globe by fusing traditional turn-based RPG gameplay with action.
The original JRPG, Valkyrie Profile, is still regarded as a masterpiece by ardent JRPG enthusiasts today. Then, Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria serves as a precursor and advancement of the original game. The third installment, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, is an oddball because it is more of a tactical RPG than the typical turn-based action game. The final Valkyrie Profile game was Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin, which was only available on iOS and Android.
The release of Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin in Japan in 2016 and the entire world in 2019 combined the traditional Valkyrie Profile dungeon-crawling premise with a gacha game. Unfortunately, the Valkyrie series was reduced to a few multiplayer devices after 2009 due to a lack of profitability. And hardly in the limelight were the old cult classic games, leaving fans to emulate the gameplay in spiritual successors.
However, much to the delight of fans, at the March 2022 PlayStation State of Play event, the latest installment in the Valkyrie Profile series, Valkyrie Elysium was formally introduced and confirmed to be released for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in the year 2022.
Now adding to the general info, an unintended goof-up from the PSN page has disclosed an exact Valkyrie Elysium release date, along with a new trailer and a few screenshots.
UPDATE: OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Reacting to the leaks and images, Square Enix has officially posted a new Tweet announcing the premiere of the new Valkyrie Elysium trailer.
Valkyrie Elysium release date
Before anything else, let’s directly get into the details of the Valkyrie Elysium’s release date and all the recent leaks and updates.
The Valkyrie Elysium release date was recently made known via the listing of the Japanese PSN page for the upcoming action JRPG Valkyrie Elysium, which was created by Square Enix. The game’s American PSN page has also been uncovered, and it lists a release date of September 29, 2022. Additionally, new screenshots and a trailer have been made public along with the release date.
However, keep in mind that the Valkyrie Elysium Western version’s release date could not be the same. Whatever happens, we’ll make sure to keep you all informed.
Leaked Valkyrie Elysium trailer and screenshots
A Valkyrie Elysium trailer seems to have been unintentionally uploaded on the Japanese page before being quickly removed and many fans are startled to learn that Valkyrie Elysium will be released so soon as Square Enix only recently revealed it during the State Of Play March 2022.
But all the recent actions of Square Enix do hint that the Valkyrie Elysium release date is approaching closer as we also saw that the title was rated both in Korea and by ESRB. Now obviously a game getting rated is a major step taken before the game’s official release.
Not a lot has been detailed by the leaked Valkyrie Elysium screenshots but one thing is for sure, players will get to explore a beautiful world filled with challenges and exciting gameplay.

Other than the screenshots and trailer, we also got a Valkyrie Elysium overview from the leaked info.
Valkyrie Elysium gameplay
Now that we are aware of the latest update on the upcoming Valkyrie Elysium title, let’s have a look at what exactly Valkyrie Elysium has to offer to the players.
As stated in the PlayStation Blog post, the Action role-playing game Valkyrie Elysium has an epic plot, gorgeous scenery, and a revolutionary, quick-fire combat system that blends strategy, action, and a special combo system to challenge your abilities to plan and react. The setting of the title is a period in ancient history where Ragnarok, or the End Times, hangs over the world.
With his last remaining vigor, the All-Father crafts a lone Valkyrie who has the potential to save this dying world as a representative of redemption. This courageous warrior faces numerous difficulties as she makes her way through the deserted land and reveals the secret truth underlying its eventual destruction of it.
In terms of Valkyrie Elysium gameplay, it was revealed that the Einherjar, unlockable characters who will join the hero and battle by her side when summoned, are only one example of how the Valkyrie series’ basic gameplay is included in Valkyrie Elysium. Additionally, Valkyrie Elysium, an exhilarating new action RPG, introduces the Valkyrie series to the PS5 and PS4 in a brand-new standalone adventure.
The upcoming title includes amazing scenes that exude the series’ ethos in an exhilarating, contemporary manner and also run at 4K and 60 FPS on PS5, resulting in an experience that looks and feels exquisitely clean.
Valkyrie Elysium trailer
Sony released a trailer for the upcoming game Valkyrie Elysium in March 2022 State of Play.
