Remember the second assembly Valis which appeared on the Nintendo Switch last September in Japan? Now Edia has released it locally in the eShop for $44.99 USD.
Valis: The Phantasm Soldier Collection II comes with three other entries in the Valis series. Players can review Valis IV (PC Engine), Sid with Valis (Genesis / Mega Drive) and Valis: A fantastic soldier (Genesis / Mega Drive). There is also a bonus game Valis: Ghost Soldier for the MSX computer system.
All these versions support “advanced playback features” such as sound mode, visual mode and rewind mode. The game menus have also been “upgraded” to improve the overall experience. Here’s a bit about the origins of the series (via Nintendo.com), as well as an overview of the collection:
“The Valis: The Fantasm Soldier series began as a side-scrolling action game on Japanese computers in 1986. These armored girls have captured the hearts of many fans over the years with their incredibly addictive gameplay and unique world-building, which has led to many sequels over the years that have been developed and ported to many generations of consoles. Even now, 35 years after its debut, the Valis series still has many passionate fans around the world.”
