I agree with DarknessSavior. "Legend of Valkyrie" sounds better than the other possibilities.

DarknessSavior:

Is this good enough, or is it too much?
The only thing that I don't like are the lower-case and upper-case "s". They're very hard to read. If you could improve on that, I think it looks great.

Never heard of fraktur you mussels?

I find it very readable and think it fits really well, actually.

Top Katakana reads "Valkyrie no"
Pretty sure it's Walküre, not Valkyrie (reference). Same word, different languages.

The character seems to be officially called Valkyrie, so I guess the title should be called like that too.

I don't mind the "s," but the letters definitely need anti-aliasing.

If anything, I think the main problem with the long s is that it’s inconsistent with every other blackletter “s” you see on the screen—including in the title.

Why not use the same font used for the text, but a bit bigger?

Anybody want to try this one?
The game is Masked Ninja Hanamaru.
Limitations I see is: the yellow color past the 16-pixel border is drawn as a sprite.
Green and blue are in separate palettes (and thus can't be in the same 16x16 boundary), but red can be mixed with either.
However, the yellowish color can't be mixed with anything in a 16x16 boundary.
Thanks.

Strange, the new one's not showing up (at least for me).

Edit: Whops, there it goes!

That'd be because he named them the same thing. So he accidentally deleted the other one.

The new one has italics while the old one doesn't. He didn't overwrite the file, the paths are different while the file names are indeed the same.
I personally feel that the new one is better. Now it just needs proper holes in the As. Just compare the A to R. Usually the hole in R should be only a slight bit bigger if, not like that.
