Lord of Valkyrie, Nutaku’s oldest major title, is being shut down. The game first appeared in December of 2014, and Nutaku feels that the game has been eclipsed by their newer titles.
All good things must eventually come to an end. For Nutaku, that end date is April 30th. The good thing in question is Lord of Valkyrie, the hentai card game that’s made Nutaku what it is today. Originally released in December of 2014, Lord of Valkyrie was Nutaku’s first major title, and the first card game that appeared on the site. The game really kicked off Nutaku’s success and set the precedent for every game we’ve seen since.
Unfortunately, Nutaku has to put Lord of Valkyrie out to pasture. While the game lived a fulfilling—albeit short—life, Lord of Valkyrie has been overtaken by Nutaku’s newer games. A lot of these newer games build and improve upon the original model, which has resulted in most players migrating away from Lord of Valkyrie. One game, in particular, Hitsuji Chronicle, the unofficial sequel to Lord of Valkyrie, has seen most of the old guard move over to it.
All this really means is that, there aren’t that many people playing Lord of Valkyrie anymore. Due to the nature of the game, Lord of Valkyrie makes use of the combined effort of concurrent players, which means a lot of the content is now harder to complete. The game is no longer profitable according to Nutaku, and it left them with a tough decision of how to proceed. With costs on the rise, Nutaku felt that Lord of Valkyrie just wasn’t sustainable enough to justify, and are pulling the plug.
Thankfully, Nutaku isn’t leaving fans of Lord of Valkyrie out to dry. The publisher has promised a gift package to those who stuck with the game, making the transition to its spiritual successor as painless as possible. This will allow players to retain some of the powerful items and gear that they’ve obtained in Lord of Valkyrie, which is pretty cool of them to do. Plus of course, the world still lives on in one of Nutaku’s newer titles, Quiz of Valkyrie.
If you want to check out Nutaku’s statement on the matter, you’ll find it right here. The big day is April 30th, so from that point on Lord of Valkyrie will be no more. You have been warned, but thankfully Nutaku’s library is growing all the time, so there’s still bound to be something there that catches your eye. See you in Valhalla.
