Sega shared the latest details of Valkyria Chronicles 4 in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine with info on the “Brave” system, the Valkyria Crimaria Revane, and other key characters. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
Crimaria Revane (CV: Yukana)
A Valkyria clad in black and known as the “Snowstorm Witch.” She’s a special duty captain of X-O, or Xechs-Oule,” an experimental unit of the Empire’s institution of science. Due to being forced to live as an experiment at the Valkyria experimental facility, she has a strong inferiority complex. She has a wolf companion named Fenrir.
Forse (CV: Kaito Ishikawa): The imperial military special unit Xechs-Oule’s tactical commander. He doesn’t participate in battles due to a disability in the legs, but he’s a man of great confidence with a cool head.
Velgar (CV: Sho Hayami): Supervisor of Xechs-Oule. He comes from a noble family and is an executive of the Empire’s institute of science. His authority is close to that of a general’s, and Xechs-Oule is a chess piece of his.
Kiara Rosino (CV: Yukiyo Fujii): Special member of Xechs-Oule. She and Nicola were raised like sisters at the Empire’s research facility. She’s assigned a duty to eliminate Velgar’s enemies. She has a sadistic personality.
Nicola Gref (CV: Naomi Ohzora): Special member of Xechs-Oule. She’s a bodyguard-like figure of Velgar, similar to Kiara. She, too, is sadistic, but unlike Kiara, she’s more of an insidious type.
Klaus Voltz (CV: Hiroki Tochi): Captain of the Imperial military’s independent gang known as Ausbruch. He’s a veteran commander known for going into battle with strong conviction to “protect the people of the Empire.” He fights using his own personal tank.
Again, keep in mind that the names will likely change once we get proper romanization from Sega.
As for the new “Brave” system, it’s something that has a chance of activating when one of your units comes close to death. When activated, you have the option to recover 1 CP and increase stats of nearby allies with “Entrust,” or restore 1 AP with the ability to attack and move while invulnerable for one turn with “Stand Up.”
Valkyria Chronicles 4 releases in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
