Ateam Inc. (headquarters: Nagoya, Japan; president: Takao Hayashi; hereafter “Ateam”) has today announced that its latest title “Valkyrie Connect”, a beautifully animated RPG which has already been installed onto Japanese mobile devices more than 3.5 million times, has hit the iTunes App Stores and Google Play™ in the U.S.A., Canada, and Australia.

 

 The masterminds behind Ateam’s flagship title “Unison League” utilized their experience and creative expertise to develop Ateam’s newest hit, “Valkyrie Connect”. “Valkyrie Connect” originally launched in Japan in June 2016 and immediately gripped players, seeing it storm up the iTunes App Store grossing ranks to reach third place. If you are not in the U.S.A., Canada, or Australia, fret not as “Valkyrie Connect” will be expanding to other regions very soon!

[Game Features]

▼Deep Battles With Autoplay Feature & Epic Special Moves at the Touch of a Button!

Hit the autoplay button and watch the 3D characters cruise through the Quests and gather loot for you. If you like devastating your enemies with over-the-top animated attacks, then you are in for a treat. When a character’s gauge fills, tap on it to unleash its unique “Action Skill” and watch your adversaries turn to dust. Timing the Action Skills can give an upper hand in battle, but if you are feeling lazy, you can automate these skills, too, so you crush foes with minimal effort.

▼Epic Chain Attacks and Mind-Blowing “Limit Burst” Skills!

On top of “Action Skills”, each character has a stupendously powerful “Limit Burst” skill that can be activated upon command of the player. If you have several characters in your party that have the same “Limit Burst” skill, they can be activated together to unleash a chain attack of pure punishment. The bigger the chain you can create, the greater the devastation you can dish out. Selecting your party members strategically to create the most effective force is the key to victory.

▼Cooperate With Other Players in “Connect Battles” to Take On Gargantuan Enemies!

In “Connect Battles”, one of the distinguishing features of “Valkyrie Connect”, you will team up with other players in real time to pit your combined force of up to 15 characters against impressive boss enemies. Subjugating these titans with the aid of fellow adventurers from around the globe gives a sense of accomplishment that can be experienced in no other mobile game.

▼All Characters Can Be Promoted to the Highest Rarity of 5 (Five Stars)!

Unlike many other Japanese RPGs, “Valkyrie Connect” allows you to Promote your characters and Reforge your Gear obtained from Summons up to their highest rarity of five stars. Along with Promoting your characters and Reforging your Gear, you can gather “Orbs” from Quests that can be set to your characters to boost their base stats. With so many ways to bolster your party, you will have endless hours of enjoyment forging the perfect fighting force.
