Story and Characters
VALKYRIE ELYSIUM is set in a world that teeters on the brink of destruction.
Ragnarok - the End Times - looms upon the realms. With the last of his strength, the All-Father Odin creates an emissary of redemption - a Valkyrie. Her task: save this doomed world.
But as this brave warrior explores this ruined land, she encounters many challenges, and begins to discover the truth behind its impending demise.
What will she think of this world… and what end shall she choose for it?
The game presents players with a story that’s fascinating, surprising, and exciting - and it’s filled with interesting characters to meet, including:
This brave warrior is the protagonist of this game and the character you control.
She was summoned by Odin to save the world and tasked with purifying the souls that dwell on it.
Odin is the supreme god of all things.
A battle with Fenrir has left him unable to move freely.
Fenrir has an immense hatred towards Odin.
He’s pulling the strings behind the scenes in order to take everything from his enemy.
This mysterious woman appears in the way of Valkyrie and her cohorts time and time again.
She is clad in black armor, but also appears to be a Valkyrie…
Einherjar are spirits of fallen warriors that can be summoned to serve the Valkyrie. They fight alongside her in battle, and each has abilities and effects that can help her during fights.
They fight alongside Valkyrie, and play a supporting role, assisting in combos and imbuing elements while summoned. Smart, skillful use of Einherjar can give you a real edge in battle!
Here are a couple that can fight alongside you:
An Einherjar that fights with a large sword. When alive, he was a knight who served a certain country.
This Einherjar wields a bow and dual blades.
