Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on Sega’s upcoming Strategy RPG Senjou no Valkyria 4: Eastern Front, or Valkyria Chronicles 4 since it’ll be tagged from the west.
The screenshots and advice we get this time around are centered on the battlecruiser Centurion, a strategic advantage for the Northern Cross Plan the federation is trying to conquer the backing of the Empire bringing the war to a surprising conclusion.
Technically, the Centurion is a “snow cruiser” built to sail on frozen terrain, ready to break the ice with its strong hull. It’s just like a giant ice-treading tank using an 230 meters-long hull.
In addition, we meet four members of this team.
Mary Bennett (voiced by Hiroko Ushida, that voices Lu Lingqi in recent Dynasty Warriors games) is an sergeant and radio operator aboard the Centurion. She has a serene “older sister” setting and a gentle grin. She is also a hard worker who regularly helps with cleaning and doing chores. Her skill is cooking.
Rufu (voiced by Shino Shimoji, who plays Pyra at Xenoblade Chronicles 2) graduated in the naval academy, she’s the firing control operator about the Centurion. Like Darcsens, she has a personality. Her tone is often harsh and she doesn’t have lots of friends, but she is in great terms with Marie.
Brian Haddock (voiced by Takuya Kirimoto, who plays Zhuge Dan from the Dynasty Warriors series) is really a lieutenant and also the Chief Navigator of the Centurion. He’s rather nervous and difficult to approach. In addition, he sees the military with contempt owing to his viewpoints of supremacy of the fleet, which frequently causes him to fight Claude.
Currently a man that was kind and calm, he had been called the “Demon Captain. ” He is the ethical pillar of this team and never loses his composure even during a catastrophe.
During battles the player will have the ability to use this “Ship Order” option to get support from the Centurion. It’s very strong, but there’s a limitation on the number of times it may be utilised in every scenario. Variety and the kind of those choices can be improved through the R&D center.
The Radar ship order can be found from the start. It finds undiscovered enemies on the map and the present position of those that have vanished from sight.
The naval artillery order enemies enemies within a place by bombarding them along with the boat’s guns. The player can specify the area.
Vehicle repair permits you to deliver a damaged armored unit back into working conditions once it was damaged on the battle and made to withdraw. Normally, you wouldn’t be able to use it during precisely the exact same assignment, yet this ship order gives you a second chance.
Rescue unit allows you revive the HP of one friendly soldier utilizing the area ambulance from the Centurion. Soldiers who have fallen and are dying may likewise be rescued and evacuated into the ship, preventing their permanent loss.
