The original PlayStation Valkyrie Profile is a hardcore RPG fan's dream. It's rare, expensive (on eBay), extremely deep, and the story strays quite far from tired RPG archetypes. Square Enix and original developer Tri-Ace just can't wait for Sony to set up their PS1 game download service for PSP, so they went ahead and remade the classic as a full fledged PSP title, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. This will give gamers plenty of time to experience the original story before the prequel, Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, hits the U.S. in September.
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, like most remakes and ports, will mean different things to different gamers. People who have beaten the original want to know if there's anything significantly new in Lenneth, while other PSP owners just want to know if there's a decent RPG coming to their portable system of choice. So I've decided to break things up nice and easy for both groups.
