James Quentin Clark writes "Next to Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile is Tri-Ace's most beloved series among RPG fans. Challenging, innovative gameplay combines with a uniquely mature and original story to create some of the most memorable games around. They hope to continue this tradition with the series' third installment, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, which brings the land of Midgard to the Nintendo DS in the first game in the series to be designed specifically for a handheld. So how did that work out for Tri-Ace? Not too bad, I'd say. Assuming that you need some more detail, I have considerately added a few bits below."
