XSEED GAMES RELEASES VALHALLA KNIGHTS 3 ON EUROPEAN PLAYSTATION®STORE

‘Ruthless’ Defines Medieval Action RPG Series’ Latest Entry, Testing Players’ Skill, Morality and Competitive Edge with Network Play and Leaderboard Features

London, United Kingdom – October 23, 2013: – XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that the medieval action RPG title, Valhalla Knights 3 , has been released as a digital download on the PlayStation ®Store in Europe, exclusively on the PlayStation ®Vita handheld entertainment system at a price of £23.99 and €29.99. A series known for its punishing difficulty, the latest iteration in the Valhalla Knights franchise invites industrious players to challenge themselves in engaging, addictive medieval RPG gameplay.

Valhalla Knights 3 forces players to carry out the criminal underground’s dirty work as they search for a long-lost legendary treasure in an immoral world, where the only way to survive is to fulfill quests against their heroic nature in the medieval prison Carceron. Players will begin by creating a fully customisable main character and allied party members, choosing from one of seven races, including Human, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling, Machine, Beast and Nightmare, and from one of up to seven basic job classes such as Fighter, Mage, Thief and Priest, with up to 20 total job classes unlockable or accessible as downloadable content.

Morality is not the only challenge players will face in Valhalla Knights 3 -- on their journey, players will engage in nonstop action-heavy real-time battle, utilising their customised party of up to seven characters. Players control any one party member at a time, and can choose to either issue commands to their allies or switch characters on the fly and take command themselves. With 200-plus quests and over 500 in-game items, weapons, armor and special goods, Valhalla Knights 3 promises players over 40 hours of basic gameplay, with many more for the completionists. For those who want to go beyond the single-player campaign, XSEED Games has added online connectivity on top of the game’s original ad-hoc two-player versus mode for its North American and European release, so fans can play against each other online no matter how far apart they are.

Valhalla Knights 3 was developed in Japan by MarvelousAQL Inc., for PS®Vita and is published by XSEED Games in North America and Europe. Valhalla Knights 3 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB for North America and PEGI 16 for Europe. Additional information about Valhalla Knights 3 can be found at www.valhallaknights3.com.
