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

old gods do new jobs

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. Arrowhead Game Studios are developing the game which will be a top-down co-op action RPG for PCs (with Steam integration). And your favorite characters will be back. According to the release, “Each character has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. 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.
