Coming after popular PSP and PS2 follow-ups to the PlayStation original, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is the third original game in Square's Norse mythology-inspired RPG series, and the first for Nintendo DS. Players control a small group of characters, each with different battle abilities, in a style of turn-based combat with an action-oriented component and an emphasis on teamwork. When fighting an enemy, each character in range is assigned a button; pressing the button causes that character to attack. The number of attacks each character can make in a round is limited, but devastating "over attack" combos are unleashed when characters are in formation and the right moves are strung together in the right order. The game's story follows an angry young soldier named Wylfred, whose father was a great and valiant warrior who was taken to Valhalla by the Valkyrie Lenneth. Bearing deep resentment from his destitute and fatherless childhood, Wylfred strives to also become a warrior worthy of Lenneth's attention, such that he may take revenge against her for the years of pain she has caused him.
Along with a small group of trusted friends and worthy allies, Wylfred ventures forth to seek fame and fortune in a land full or strife and in desperate need of a hero. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game GuideValkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, click here for more details
