We're barely surviving 2008's consumerism climax and already publishers are dangling their 2009 wares in front of us. Alright, Square Enix, we'll play your despicable game, if only to take our minds off the current gaming glut. Square Enix's North American (and heavily subtitled) lineup for Q1 200...

Square Enix has delayed the Japanese launch of Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One by four weeks, citing a need to improve the game (in ... four weeks?!); the title has now been shifted to October 30th.

We don't really know why we're sharing this because we thought perhaps putting in our pre-order first and securing a copy for ourselves would be a wise choice before sharing the scoop. But, we've got an obligation to you dear readers and we wouldn't do that to you. If you haven't picked up a copy of...

Almost two months have passed since we last heard a peep out of Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One (but what a peep it was, if you remember: this extremely fine trailer, which we just watched and got really excited about again).

As much as we love to knock Square-Enix for its incessant rehashes and poor online mode implementations, the publisher can still put together a trailer guaranteed to knock our socks off. Never mind that it's all CG -- who cares when it's this well executed? The lonesome music and desolate scene wor...

The latest screens from Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One make it abundantly, obviously clear that a major component of the Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria battle system is returning for the DS game: the Soul Crushes.

According to this week's Jump magazine, tri-Ace is currently slogging away on a Valkyrie Profile game for the DS.

Another day, yet another Valkyrie Profile review. The 1UP Show got me thinking: "maybe the load times will make this a bad game." Rest assured, IGN has posted their review of the game, one long day before its final release, and it is good. In fact, it's so good, it gets a shiny Editor's Choice award...
