Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included details and screenshots of the Battle Trial Version 2.0 demo of Valkyria: Azure Revolution.
We learn that in the demo there are two base attack “challenging missions” on top of the one on the field that was showcased at Tokyo Game show. Customization options will also be available.
At the headquarters it will be possible to select a party of four for each mission, among six possible characters. Items and equipment will also be available for purchase with the currency earned during missions.
At Basil’s factory it’ll be possible to equip Ragnite weapons to use in battle, on top of guns and grenades. In the full game this is where players will also research new weapons and upgrade them.
During missions, enemies will drop loot and Ragnite shards, that can then be exchanged for items. Characters can also be leveled up, and skills and weapons can be improved.
The two “challenging missions” available are “Grotsen Recapture” and “Valkyria Extermination Mission.” The first prompts the player to assault a base that was occupied by imperial forces, while the second is a deadly boss battle against Brunhild herself.
You can check out the screenshots below. Of course keep in mind that they’re magazine scans, so the quality isn’t up there with direct feed screenshots.
Valkyria: Azure Revolution will launch in Japan on January 19th for PS4 and PS Vita. The new demo will release for PS4 only on the Japanese PSN on October 6th, exclusively for those who have the first demo (which came with the Japanese version of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered) or received the code after playing at Tokyo Game Show.
