  • Crimaria Lewin (voiced by Yukana) – The Valkyria known as the “Queen of the Snowstorm.” She is the special duty captain of X-0 “Xechs Oule,” which is the Imperial science institution’s special test unit. Because she was forced to live as an experiment at the Valkyria experimental facility, she has a strong inferiority complex. She acts alongside her friend, a wolf named Fenrir.
  • Forse (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa) – Tactical commander of the Xechs Oule Imperial military unit that appears countless times before the protagonist and company. His legs are disabled and thus he does not participate directly in battle. He has great confidence in himself and is always composed.
  • Berger (voiced by Shou Hayami) – The supervisor of Xechs Oule. He is of noble background and is an executive at the Imperial science institution. He has the authority of an admiral, and Xechs Oule are his chess pieces.
  • Kiara Rosina (voiced by Yukiyo Fujii) – A special member of Xechs Oule. She and Nikola Grev were brought up together like sisters at the Imperial research institution. She is assigned the duty of eliminating Berger’s enemies. She has a sadistic personality.
  • Nikola Grev (voiced by Naomi Ohzora) – A special member of Xechs Oule. Like Kiara, she acts as Berger’s bodyguard. She is sadistic as well, but unlike Kiara, Nikola is the malicious type.
  • Krautz Voltz (voiced by Hiroki Touchi) – The captain of “Ausbruch,” an independent gang of the Imperial army. He is a veteran commander who charges into battle with the strong conviction to “protect the people living in the Empire.” He battles riding a dedicated tank.

Brave System

When a soldier in your army is on the verge of death, there is a fixed chance that a new system called “Brave” will be activated. When Brave is activated, you can choose one from two options:

  • “Entrust” – Restores one Command Point (CP) and increases the ability of a nearby ally.
  • “Rise Up” – Restores one Action Point (AP), and enables you to attack and move only once in an invincible state.

Six Classes

  • Scout

  • Assault

  • Engineer

  • Lancer

  • Sniper

  • Grenadier (new class)

    I want vc3 first. Any news about that. Im sure many will skip this one like me. Because we never got to play vc3

    • RushDawg says:

      Sounds like this one will have a self contained story, so it won’t be a big deal if you haven’t played VC3. I want VC3 too, but I’m not gonna skip a new VC game over it.

      Basically, Valkyria Chronicles 1, 3 and 4 take place around the same time with different people doing different things. The story is about the war, but its more about the people in the squad and the villains they fight which differ from each group. You don’t need to play Valkyria Chronicles 3 at all, but I do agree it would be nice to get a port of the game. I doubt it’ll happen but we can hope.
