Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a gallery of screenshots and artwork of Valkyria: Azure Revolution, that will be released in Japan on January 19th for PS4 and PS Vita.

This time around, we get the reveal of the rest of the members of the Vanargand anti-Valkyria unit.

First of all, we learn that the unit is divided in different categories: armored troopers, which are slow and heavily armored, carry a large shield.

Shock troopers are the most well rounded, with good defense and the highest offense. Due to that reason, they’re the best for beginners, as they have less evident drawbacks.

Scouts are the fastest, and are the best at battlefield reconnaissance. They can also overwhelm the enemy thanks to their attack speed.

Last but not least, Engineers make full use of magical arts to support and heal their allies. Their raw attack power and defense are low.

We also meet specifically six newly revealed characters. The armored troopers Jorda Kuvist, Godot Villefaut and Tilda Geese, the shock trooper Daryl Rommedahl, the scout Isaac Beargreen, and the engineer Sarah Benner. There is also Miranda Villefaut, who is Godot’s sister and used to be Ophelia’s handmaiden at the castle. Godot himself used to be the chamberlain, and now is Vanargand’s aide-de-camp.
