What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Valkyrie of Phantasm adopts a versus battle system that requires very delicate adjustments to the game balance. Additionally, when creating enemies and skills, careful and concise judgement is required to find the optimal level of fun without going overboard.

Therefore, we would like to enter Early Access so we can collect player feedback to help us with finding the optimal game balance and perfecting the game. The earlier in our development process that we can start collecting player feedback, the earlier we can start optimizing all aspects for the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for a 1 to 1.5 year period in Early Access before moving onto full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version only contains half of the full story. The full version will complete the story, offering multiple endings which are not present in Early Access.

The Early Access version will initially offer 5 stages. The full version is planned to have over 30 stages. Additional characters and bosses will be added via future updates.

In Early Access, players have access to 4 characters in versus mode, with 4 more characters and many spells/abilities planned to be added via updates as the game move towards the full version.

The full version will also include other game modes not present in Early Access, such as 2 vs 2 battle mode, survival mode etc.

We will also use Early Access to test out and refine network mode before officially introducing it in the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
The Early Access version is roughly 30% of the planned 1.0 version and contains
- 4 playable characters
- 5 stages for story mode (out of over 30 stages)
- 1 vs 1 (CPU) battle mode
- 1 vs 1 network battle mode (test mode)
- Tutorial mode
- 4 basic shots + 5 usable spells per character (20 spells total)
- 19 usable abilities

We plan to add the following features during Early Access until the full version:
- All 8 playable characters in subsequent updates
- All 30 or more story mode stages
- 2 vs 2 battle mode
- Additional 3 usable spells per character
- Over 20 usable abilities will be added
*These additions are planned to be introduced in subsequent updates until the game reaches 100% completion”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The Early Access version will have a lower price point than the full version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be able to answer questions/inquiries about the game, and collect feedback on any bugs to help us improve the game, which includes any and all feedback in the Steam Community.”

About This Game

Story


A meteorite suddenly falls to Gensokyo.
A crack appears in its golden, egg-like surface, and small droplets of light emanate from the inside,
which then scatter in all directions.
Eventually, they arrive in the hands of Gensokyo's most powerful.

One of these lights reaches Reimu Hakurei. It surrounds her, transforming into what looks like a suit of armor.
A name echoes in her head, and she proclaims.
"A Valkyrie Arm..."
Sensing the beginnings of an incident, she sighs and looks off in the direction the light came from.
She floats up and into the air—and a moment later she's already gone, leaving naught behind but a thin red trail.

"My body feels so light..."
Soaring faster than ever before, Reimu realizes her armor—her Valkyrie Arm—is to thank for her newfound speed.
Who gave her this power, and for what purpose? Reimu hastens to find the cause of all this. But it doesn't take long before someone stands in her way.

"It looks like I'm not the only one."

Before Reimu is another girl, similarly clad in a Valkyrie Arm. Each of them now possesses the same power, and inevitably...
...a high-speed danmaku battle begins.
