Ateam Entertainment announced that a second Valkyrie Connect x Hololive collaboration will be held in the near future. More VTubers from Hololive Production are likely to show up in the game at some point. The resounding reaction to the first collaboration motivated both parties to continue working together.
The first Hololive collaboration began on May 17th for Valkyrie Connect and featured 4 popular VTubers to obtain. These VTubers are Takanashi Kiara, Usada Pekora, Laplus Darkness and Ninomae Ina’nis. Players have until June 1st to obtain them within Valkyrie Connect, which is roughly a week from now.
More details about the second event are coming soon. In the meantime, Ateam Entertainment wants player feedback about the first event with the hashtag #HolokyrieConnect across their social media channels. Feedback from this event could be used to improve the second collaboration.
Valkyrie Connect is available now for iOS, Android, and PC via Steam. Lastly, read up about the game below:
-What is Valkyrie Connect?
It’s a Japanese RPG set in a world that’s basically an anime version of Norse mythology. There are tons of Heroes to collect and upgrade, ranging from standard fantasy fare like Elves and Dwarves to Jotun and Aesir and whatever Garm is. Some kind of Doggo, we think.
-What’s that Limit Burst thing mentioned a few lines up?
All Heroes in the game have unique skills and something called a Limit Burst. Limit Bursts are flashy abilities that can swing the tide of battle. Assigning multiple Heroes with the same Limit Burst to your party increases the Limit Burst’s strength, which adds another layer of strategy to party building. Both skills and Limit Bursts can be activated with a few quick clicks, letting you focus on timing.
-Tell me more about upgrading Heroes.
WHERE TO BEGIN. You can level them up, of course. You can upgrade their star rating by collecting their souls. You can attach orbs to upgrade certain stats. You can equip them with gear to give them extra abilities. Gear can also be upgraded separately, by the way. Certain Heroes can also be “”awakened””, which grants them new passive skills. Basically, you take your parties from lil’ babby weaklings to powerhouses that can take down literal gods. Their power scores get bigger, and you feel better.
-Connect Battles… What are those about?
They’re co-op battles that you can run in real time with your friends. The bosses in these battles are big. Real big. Connect Battles are the heart of Valkyrie Connect (it’s even in the title!), and this is where you can put your fancy powered up heroes to the test. Many of our players spend hours each day running them together.
-20-player raids… those sound fun.
They are! The bosses are even bigger than Connect Battle bosses. Bet. Those drop materials that let you craft artifacts, which are special pieces of gear you can equip on your Heroes.
