Square Enix announced that it has delayed the release of the Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth remaster to December 22. It will no longer launch alongside the release of Valkyrie Elysium on PlayStation.
“As we celebrate the upcoming launch of Valkyrie Elysium, we, unfortunately, need a bit more time for Valkryie Profile: Lenneth to improve the quality of the title and have decided to move the release date to December 22, 2022,” Square Enix says on Twitter.
We have an update regarding #ValkyrieProfile: Lenneth.

The remaster is a bonus for those who pre-ordered the Valkyrie Elysium Digital Deluxe Edition on PlayStation 4 and 5. It’s being ported from the PlayStation Portable version and includes new quality of life features such as rewind, quick save, and visual preset functionality. In Japan, the game can be bought separately for 2,750 yen (~$20 USD), but it’s currently unknown whether that will be the case in other territories.
Valkyrie Elysium launches on September 29 for PlayStation 4 and 5, with a PC release on November 11. It’s worth noting that the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game on PC seemingly doesn’t include the Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth remaster.
Free DLC will be added to the game on November 11 as well, coinciding with the PC release. It includes the Seraphic Gates challenge areas and a separate game mode called “Hilde’s Vengeance” where players can play as Hilde, the Valkyrie dressed in black. Harder difficulty modes will be available too.
