Seems that the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu was packed with new information, what a nice surprise before Christmas! Not only did they reveal Catherine: Full Body, but we also got more information on Valkyria Chronicles 4.
One of the first new pieces of information is the introduction of four new characters. The information was translated by Gematsu:
- Angelica Farnaby (voiced by Ayane Sakura) – A civilian girl who lost her memories. She is cheerful, selfless, and kind, and gains sudden popularity among the soldiers. There is also a scene where she confronts the “Witch of the Snowstorm.”
- Karen Stewart (voiced by Yuka Saitou) – A gentle medic. Since she was raised in an all-male household, she is skilled in the treatment of men.
- Ragnarok – The medical dog.
- Minerva Victor (voiced by Saori Hayami) – The commanding officer of Squad F. She values the spirit of chivalry, and is both sociable and calm with her squad mates.
Outside of the four new characters, Weekly Famtisu also gave out more details on the leveling system for the game. Valkyria Chronicles 4 will have levels for classes and not individual soldiers, you will allocate points and once you reach a certain level you will advance to a higher class. SEGA will also release “Join Operation with Squad 7“, as DLC that comes with the PlayStation 4 limited edition version (in Japan). This DLC will allow you to play a mission with the original characters from Valkyria Chronicles.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 hits PlayStation 4 on March 21, 2018 in Japan, the Nintendo Switch version hits Summer 2018. Valkyria Chronicles 4 hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018 in the Americas and Europe.
