The sequel to a cult-classic RPG for the original PlayStation (it's also set to re-appear on the PSP), Valkyrie Profile 2 stars Alicia, a girl possessed by the warlike spirit of a battle maiden - or valkyrie - named Silmeria. The game blends spectacular visuals and action combat into an exciting mixture. Expect our hands on of VP2 (and many more of these games) from the E3 show, which begins May 10. VP2 is due to ship later this year.
