The Nirvan's road in the PCE-CD/TGCD version of Valis III
Also known as:
Perfect world temple, Nilvarn temple
Sutherland's heart and Nizetti's home. The final test for all Valis warriors in order to reach Nizetti and ask him to release the full power of the Valis sword. Its infrastructure doesn't differ from that one of the entire Sutherland, although It doesn't have any water current and is conformed by the way to Its top and the top summit Itself where Nizetti awaits.
The part of the temple that gives the name to the stage Itself. It extends as a long way to the high summit full of enemies difficulting the pass.
The last part of the temple and the place where Nizetti lives, he tests the warriors in this place and if the test is overcame successfully, the ones that did so can see him. It's situated in one of the highest parts of Vanity as the space itself can be seen from here.
Nirvan's temple appeared in all the versions of Valis III, being the sixth stage of the PCE-CD/TGCD and the second half of the fourth stage in the Mega Drive/Genesis.
- Nizetti's guards (final test)
- The name of Nirvan's temple is inspired in the "Nirvana", a state of mind and spirit liberation in the hinduism and budhism, but It's also refered as a paradise.
- The background of Nirvan's road is one of the few backgrounds in the entire series to change progressively as the player advances through the level.
- The background of Nirvan's road is more simple in the PCE-CD/TGCD version, having only some clouds and a clear sky while the MD/Genesis one has Its entire lower part covered by a clouds current most likely indicating that the temple is over the sky Itself.
- The Nirvan's temple's name is mispelled as "Nilbarn" in the american versions of Valis III, although this could be intentional in order to avoid religious references because of American game politics from those years.
- In the Genesis manual of such game, a graphic mentions that this place is somewhat connected to Valhalla from Valis IV.
