We recently got some details on some of the main characters of Valkyria: Azure Revolution, Sega’s upcoming strategy RPG, and the game’s official website has updated with some new screenshots for the three.
Blum is from the shopping district area of Jutland’s capital, Elsinoa. He’s known for his manual dexterity, and has played with items that use Ragnite. He was forced by his childhood friend Helena into taking the aptitude test to join Vanargand.
Helena is the pretty girl of a cafe at the capital Elsinoa. She takes the aptitude test for joining Vanargand in order to save her country. Helena hates losing and has a strong sense of ambition. She gets a bit annoyed upon finding out that her childhood friend Blum scores higher on the test they took together.
When Vanargand came to be, Brigitta decided to take an aptitude test to join for her love of country and justice. While she didn’t score too high, she was allowed to join because they saw the potential in her. Since she was raised in a house of teachers, she’s quite the serious and intellectual character, but they say that she’s completely different while holding a gun.
Vanargand is a unit that was made to fight against the Empire’s Valkyria. The “Ragnite Elite” have members that were selected based on their Ragnite suitability, used for Hexes, and were chosen even if they didn’t have military experience. Each member uses magic weapons that were created with Ragnite, and they each have enough power to go head-to-head against tanks.
Valkyria: Azure Revolution will release in Japan in winter 2016 for PlayStation 4. You can also check out our earlier report for some footage of the game’s battle demo 1.0, which recently released with Valkyria Chronicles Remastered in Japan.
