John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “tri-Ace have created a stunning game with VALKYRIE PROFILE 2: SILMERIA featuring spectacular graphics, exciting gameplay and a gripping story of high drama. We’re very excited to be bringing VALKYRIE PROFILE 2: SILMERIA to Europe and hope fans enjoy the action that awaits them.”
The valkyrie Silmeria once served Odin loyally, but after an incident ignited a conflict between them, Odin forcefully reincarnated her as a human. The human soul that would carry her spirit was that of Alicia, Princess of Dipan. Ordinarily, Silmeria's consciousness would have been sealed, her spirit dormant until she was next summoned.
However, the forced transmigration causes Silmeria's spirit to awaken within Alicia, leaving two souls to inhabit a single body. The spirit that should have been sealed has awakened — a situation Odin will not ignore for long.
