@“Personasama”#p68056 Not sure I understand how that will help but I aim to please.

@“Personasama”#p68056 Sugimori Works only has a small excerpt but if you want the full thing, search ワルキューレの冒険外伝―ふたりの女神, last I checked it wasn't super expensive

@“gsk”#p68086 can't find a copy right now but I DID FIND

I'm greatly amused that this costs less than what some CIB copies of Famicom Valkyrie no Bouken is going for on Amazon lol

If you want your own Valkyrie cosplay outfit, [here you go.](https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/Walkyries-Adventure-Legendary-Walkure-Cosplay/dp/B0956XQTY6/ref=sr_1_27?crid=1AMW3O1XZDZSS&keywords=%E3%83%AF%E3%83%AB%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A5%E3%83%BC%E3%83%AC%E3%81%AE%E5%86%92%E9%99%BA&qid=1651167887&sprefix=%E3%83%AF%E3%83%AB%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A5%E3%83%BC%E3%83%AC%E3%81%AE%E5%86%92%E9%99%BA%2Caps%2C92&sr=8-27)

Loosely related: I just learned there was a Pulseman one-shot manga???

I‘ve never really spent time with the game, I don’t have room to hang more posters on my wall, but I'm extremely tempted to buy this replica poster they're selling as part of the Namco Museum of Art series.

[upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/m8jq1BT.png]

Some Valkyrie garage kits from NG Namco Community Magazine (Monthly Issue 43) - October 1991

This is one of those games of I learned of entirely via fan art of the character, and maybe liking the official art upon looking it up?

Don't think I ever played it for whatever reason but I may have to grab this Arcade Archives version.

@“coffeentacos”#p68146 Same! The Arcade Archives version is really fun and charming and only takes an hour to credit-feed through. Well worth the experience!

@“Nemoide”#p68136 but I’m extremely tempted to buy this replica poster they’re selling as part of the Namco Museum of Art series.

Oh heck, do you think they ship to the US??

@“Personasama”#p68150 I don‘t think they do, but I’ve picked up the dangerous habit of using proxy services…

@“Nemoide”#p68158 Oof, that‘s some dedication. Maybe I’ll do that too if I can find all the Valkyrie mangas on any of the services buyee works with.

Anyway, here's a high quality rip of everyone's favorite Valkyrie theme:

Anyway, I ordered all the Valkyrie manga, including the Ken Sugimori one. Surugaya had a lot of them, except for Glory of Walkure vol 2, so I ended up getting that for way too much from another seller. But then later I got smart and searched for stuff using HIroshi Fuji's name instead and found a listing for that and the other books for so much cheaper and now I'm in despair 😢

Wait, I forgot to update the thread with the other Valkyrie stuff I found earlier:

Blessed Archive.org has a copy of **Walkure Story for Orchestra** which is, according to Amazon.jp: "a symphonic poem consisting of five acts based on the original story, which is a musical motif written as a soundtrack for the video games _Valkyrie no Densetsu_ and _Valkyrie's Adventure_." It was made in 1993 and performed by the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra. VGMDB info here: https://vgmdb.net/album/5437

There's also the Super 1500 Series: The Legend of Valkyrie, which was the first and only ever port of the arcade game to the PC: https://archive.org/details/legendofvalkyriepc

From what I learned from a youtube video, this PC port was made by Tose? I wonder if it's a source port or emulation 🤔

Anyway, incredible, bless everyone that submits to archive.org

The English version of the Namco Museum of Art video on Valkyrie no Bōken just came out.

https://youtu.be/uj_7dFLdndA

Just learned that in an alternate universe, Valkyrie could've shown up in Pac-Man World 1!!!

Three pretty dope covers drawn by the legend himself Yoneda Hitoshi for three gamebooks set in the world of Valkyrie no Bōken. In case you always wanted to know what the Valkyrie would look like in Phantasy Star.
