Valkyrie Profile's storyline centers on Norse mythology. A war between Ragnarok and Odin is close to breaking out in Valhalla while a conflict on Earth is also brewing. As a Valkyrie, the player's role is to go down to Earth and recruit 24 fallen soldiers to join the fight against Ragnarok. As each soldier's spirit is recruited it must be trained and eventually sent to Valhalla to fight beside Odin. Deciding when to send a soldier to Valhalla impacts the game as weak soldiers may perish while strong soldiers may be useless if sent too late.
While adventuring, only a total of three other warriors may be in your party at any one time. When in dungeons the game becomes a side-scrolling platform game in which the player will be able to run, jump, and attack. Battles outside of dungeons are turn-based and include combination attacks. Set over two discs, Valkyrie Profile features hand-painted backgrounds and multiple endings. ~ All Game Guide
