Features

Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is a game that features an isometric view game-play. It features a two-dimensional character that is controlled by the player which moves about on a three-dimensional map, akin to a tactical role-playing game. The player's characters can actively support each other via the Mutual Assist system, as well as attacking enemies individually. Characters are marked as ready to engage in attack mode with an exclamation mark appears over their sprite. This happens when an enemy is in the attacking range, and up to four characters may be set to engage in the attack. Each of four characters is mapped to the A, B, X, and Y buttons, and each press of the button orders the characters to attack. The game features the EN Gauge. Successful attacks fill and build up the EN Gauge, allowing individual characters to perform powerful special attacks called Soul Crushes. The game also features purple gems and magic crystals. Covenant of the Plume also features Active Formation system. This system allows players to exploit the position of their individual characters around enemies, by aligning their characters in certain formations which will give a greater rate of increase to the EN Gauge or a boost to the chance of gaining items from the encounter. Some of the formation in this system are the Double Cluster formation (two pairs of characters on opposite sides of an enemy) and the Grand Cross formation (with one character at each of an enemy's four sides). This game also features Wylfred's Goddess's Feather, which is an item that can temporarily grant an ally with improved statistics and abilities. Once the battle ends, however, the Goddess's Feather's power overwhelms that person's physical form, causing them to perish. It is up to the player to weigh these dire consequences against what they wish to accomplish with this dangerous power.
