Valkyrie Needs Food Badly: New Gauntlet Video Game On The Way [TRAILER]

I’m pretty sure 1985′s Gauntlet introduced me to the concept of a Valkyrie so you can bet I’m excited for this revamp of the classic.

For example, the Warrior does the most damage in melee combat, the Wizard has the most powerful magic, the Valkyrie has the most armor and the Elf moves the fastest.”

“Valkyrie has the most armor” – music to my ears.
