Famitsu Review Reveals Valkyrie Elysium Has Multiple Endings, Playtime Roughly 20 Hours; New Screenshots

Japanese publication Famitsu recently published their review of the soon-to-be-released Square Enix action JRPG, Valkyrie Elysium. Aside from new screenshots to peruse, two significant pieces of information were gleaned from here.

Firstly, according to the reviewer, playtime is roughly 20 hours long when completing the main story and sidequests. Alternatively, if one solely guns for the main story, playtime is expected to be around 18 hours. Of course, it’s worth mentioning that the game is receiving free updates in November comprising a new playable character, Hilde, greater difficulty options, and more.

So, when considering those factors, players can expect to spend more time in the title once those features arrive. It is also worth noting that playtime will vary depending on the player, but 20 hours is the ballpark range one should expect.

The second notable factor brought up in the review, albeit without much detail, is that the game has multiple endings. Obviously, due to spoilers, specifics revolving around how many and what they contain were not shared, but it seems there is more to this narrative than meets the eye.

You can view the newly revealed screenshots below:

Still, the presentation boasts a unique art style with fast-paced combat that we’re eager to try out. A magic system of sorts also seems to be in play as well.
