Valhalla Knights 3 marks the return of the gritty action RPG series, now taking full advantage of the powerful PS Vita hardware to provide intense real-time battle and smooth seven-on-seven party-based combat. After creating a main character and field-worthy party members from one of seven races such as human, elf and beast with a myriad of customizable physical traits, each character is assigned a job class from the twenty available such as fighter, mage and priest. As battles are won each customized character earns various loot from the countless items, weapons and armor available, as well as skill points towards unlocking job-specific skills. Powerful pre-existing warriors can also be persuaded to join your battle party by showering them with gifts and creating a strong personal bond.

Want to love this this game but....
I play my Vita and my 3DS more than I play my console and PC put together, and since I also love RPG's, I REALLY want this game to be good.
So it pains me to admit, that after watching the above video I'm pretty skeptical. The purpose of a company releasing game footage pre-launch is to try and generate buzz for the product, which means they choose the footage as carfully as they edit everything together, with one purpose in mind - make the game look as awesome as possible.
Which is what makes the video that was givien to GameStop so worrisome to me. I encourage all of you to watch or re-watch the video and notice the stunning lack of atmospheric detail in every single scene - The landscape in every scene looks sleep-inducing, there doesnt appear to be any environmental or atmospheric detail at all - the epitomy of generic. The few indoor scenes shown are probably worse, unless all of the buildings shown are supposed to be utterly abandoned, as well as freshly cleaned.
The excuse can't be made that "these are just the battle scenes" and therefore just a generic backdrop only shown during a fight because in the preview it is stated that: "Seemless transition to battle on the field map commences..." so if there is no battle transition, then there is no generic battle arena like in some RPG's. The Vita hardware isnt a limitation either, its capable of way more than what is shown in this video. I hope that my fears turn out to be unfounded, but I for one will be waiting to try before I buy on this one

maybe they'll get this one right
The first two in the series weren't very good. The first one was very tedious to play with tons of level griding and extremely bland environments and enemies. Xseed has published some great games so here's hoping they step things up and give us another great RPG on the Vita.
