Get to Know the Enemy Characters in Valkyria Chronicles 4
SEGA has published a new information batch for Valkyria Chronicles 4, the long-anticipated sequel in the Valkyria Chronicles series, at the latest Weekly Famitsu magazine. This article introduces enemy characters grouped under the X-O (pronounced Zechs-Owl), a special experimental unit under the Empire’s science institute that will intercept the protagonist’s unit on multiple occasions.
Climaria Levin (VA Yukana): The Valkyria who is also known as the Blizzard Witch. She is a special captain in the X-O squad. As she is forced to live as an experimental subject in the Valkyria Experimental Facility, she has a strong inferiority complex. She moves together with a wolf named Fenrir, which is also her friend.
Forse (VA Kaito Ishikawa): The X-O squad’s strategic commander. Because his legs are impaired, he cannot directly participate in battles. However, he has great confidence in himself, and is able to stay calm under any situations.
Belger (VA Sho Hayami): The X-O squad manager. He comes from a noble family and holds the highest authority in the Empire’s science institute. He has the authority to enjoy a general’s livelihood, and he uses the X-0 squad as his pawns.
Kiara Rosino (VA Yukiyo Fujii): A special member in X-O. She was raised together with Nicola like they are siblings in the Empire’s research institute. She undertakes missions to obliterate Belger’s enemies, and she has a sadistic personality.
Nicola Greff (VA Naomi Ozora): Another special member in X-O She and Kiara act like Belger’s bodyguards. She is also a sadist, but unlike Kiara, she is even more malicious. Currently, it doesn’t seem like Nicola and Kiara are getting along well.
Klaus Voltz (VA Hiroki Touchi): The leader of Ausbruch, an independent hooligan squad in the Empire army. An experienced famous general who goes into battles with his own tank, holding a strong belief to “protect people living in the Empire.”
In addition to the enemy characters, the article also introduces a new gameplay mechanic that did not exist in previous Valkyria Chronicles games. Dubbed the Brave system, it will have a certain percentage of activating when an ally character is in a dying state. When activated, the player can make a choice of either “Entrust” which replenishes a Command Point and also raises the stats of nearby allies, or “Stand Up” which will give an extra Attack Point and also make the character invincible for a single movement period.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be released for PlayStation 4, first in Japan on March 21, 2018. There are also Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions that will be released later worldwide.
