Today Sega revealed new gameplay videos of the upcoming strategy JRPG Senjou no Valkyria 4: Eastern Front, which will come to the west as Valkyria Chronicles 4.
The videos are (which were published by the new Twitter account “Nikola and Kiara’s Infiltration Diary”) particularly interesting as they introduce two members of squad E outside of the circle of protagonists that we already have seen a lot.
The first is a male Darcsen named Zaiga, who apparently has a lot of respect for Raz (he calls him “Aniki,” which means “big brother”). The second is a mysterious twin-pigtailed girl named Ferie. The pigtails are literally all we see, as she wears a fully covering helmet hiding her features.
We also get to see more bonus artwork by Character Designer Raita Honjoy, portraying heroine Riley, and Nikola and Kiara themselves.
Another very interesting element is that the Tweets mention that Zaiga and Ferie’s reveal are the first and second entries of the “Squad E personnel file” which counts over fifty characters. Looks like we’ll have a whole lot of choice on who to bring into battle.
You can check them out below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy a brand new trailer from this morning, more videos and art from yesterday about Riley, a reveal from two days ago about Claude, the latest batch of screenshots focusing on the Snow Cruiser Centurion and her crew, the latest trailer, some more screenshots from last week, two recent gameplay videos from Taipei Game Show, the first gameplay footage, a recent trailer showcasing the crossover DLC with the first game, another showing a wide range of gameplay features, the previous batch of screenshots and information, the first trailer, more screenshots, more artwork and info, and the first gallery of images.
