Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, originally known as Valkyrie Profile (ヴァルキリープロファイル, Varukiri Purofairu), is a console role-playing game (RPG) developed by tri Ace and published by the Enix Corporation (now Square Enix Co., Ltd).
It was originally released simply as Valkyrie Profile in 1999 in Japan, and later released in 2000 in North America. Both were released on the PlayStation console.
Square Enix announced a port of Valkyrie Profile for the PlayStation Portable. Titled Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, the game was released in Japan in March 2006 and shipped on July 18, 2006, in North America.
A PlayStation 2 sequel, titled Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, was also announced for a 2006 release in Japan. The North American version was released on September 25, 2006.
The game is based on Norse mythology. Players assume the role of a Valkyrie who must find the souls of people who die tragic deaths, shape them into powerful warriors post-mortem, and send them to Valhalla for the final apocalyptic battle between the Æsir and Vanir, Ragnarok.
Each warrior has a 'Hero Value', a number representing their usefulness in Valhalla, and certain characters cannot be sent to fight in Ragnarok.
