Square Enix Announces New Valkyrie Profile RPG, Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin

While details are light, Square Enix has revealed a new game in the Valkyrie Profile series is on the way and will be out in Japan sometime in the next few months.

Little is known about the new RPG, which is called Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin. A newly launched teaser website (translated by Gematsu) offers almost no information beyond the name, the fact that it's an RPG, and a Japanese release window of spring 2016.

Beyond the lack of any screenshots or images other than the logo above, the most notably absent bit of information is what platform it's coming to. Gematsu notes the use of the word "distribution" in relation to its release suggests it's a smartphone game, but that hasn't yet been made official. Likewise, we don't know when or if it'll be released outside of Japan.

The Valkyrie Profile series--of which Anatomia is a part, based on the logo resembling that of previous games--dates back to 1999, when Valkyrie Profile was released in Japan on the original PlayStation. That game would be ported to PSP in 2006 and has since seen two follow-ups: one on PS2 in 2006 (Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria) and another on DS in 2008 (Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, released in the west in 2009).

Covenant of the Plume producer Yoshinori Yamagishi is listed on the teaser site as being involved, which suggests series developer Tri-Ace is taking the reigns on development.

We'll have more information on Anatomia as it's announced.
