Square Enix has confirmed the release dates for the console and PC versions of Valkyrie Elysium, the fifth installment of the popular Japanese RPG franchise inspired by Norse mythology. The console version of Valkyrie Elysium will launch for PS5 and PS4 on September 29, 2022, while the PC version will be released on Steam on November 11, 2022. The Steam release of Valkyrie Elysium is notable in that it marks the first time that a Valkyrie game will be available to play on PC, not counting emulators.

The PS5 and PS4 Digital Deluxe Editions of Valkyrie Elysium will include a digital copy of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, an enhanced port of the original game that was released for the PSP in 2006 with new FMVs.
