■ An Overview of Liliati and Veronica’s Battle Styles
In Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, four unique princesses appear.
Liliati is from the agricultural Alixarn Kingdom. Veronica is from a black magic guild made up of magicians. Monomaria is from a trade nation and the Noble Business Alliance. And Alpana is from the North Kamara Clan Federation, where people follow the faith of the dragon god.
The princesses are all commanders that lead the soldiers of each power, but the weapons they use and how they fight differ. In Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, you can enjoy diverse actions and a large variety of strategies for each princess.
This time, we will introduce the contrastive battle styles of Liliati and Veronica.
—During action parts, you will fight using the attack actions assigned to each button. Each princess controls the same, but their attack motions and range significantly differ.
◆ Liliati Alixarn (voiced by Ayane Sakura)
The princess of Alixarn and its head knight. While she is no good at thinking about complicated issues, she desires from the bottom of her heart to build a country where people can live happily and without hunger. She has a good appetite and dreams of eating dragon meat as a steak.
Liliati’s dedicated weapon is a two-handed axe. She has a standard attack style free of peculiarity where she mainly uses close-range physical attacks.
Move at high speed while dealing damage to the enemies you touch. Since this serves as both movement and an attack, it is convenient for breaking through an enemy encirclement.
Axe Throw Attack
Throws the axe forward to attack an enemy. If you throw it after building up power, you can deal even greater damage.
◆ Veronica (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi)
The young genius witch who leads the black magic guild. She is arrogant and cool-headed, and is feared as someone who immediately turns useless people into frogs. Since she does not treat capable individuals and those who swear their allegiance with poor attitude, she is also adored.
As a magician, Veronica uses attack magic. She has a slightly less amount of moves, but can deal damage to a vast range of enemies.
Scapegoat Frog Bomb
Sets a frog-style time bomb, then withdraws with a dash. Be careful not to get caught up in the blast.
Fires magic shots to attack the enemies in front of you. Depending on the how far along your parameters are, the power of the attack will increase.
■ Expanding the Princess’ Abilities with Knowledge Materia
By using items called “Knowledge Materia,” you can increase the princess’ parameters. You can acquire Knowledge Materia by repeatedly performing “Direct Teaching,” through which you’ll “scold” or “praise” the princess.
Enable a Vast Array of Tactics by Raising Your Parameters
In addition to increasing basic stats such as HP, raising the princess’ parameters can enable the strengthening of attack actions, and the unlocking of new branches of the army to hire to take along on the battlefield, as well as “tactics,” which can be used to control the actions of soldiers. By raising your parameters with Knowledge Materia, you can raise your characters to become even stronger and have an greater degree of tactical freedom.
—Acquire Knowledge Materia through Direct Teaching.
—Use Knowledge Materia during training parts.
—By raising your parameters, you’ll be able to hire the new army branch known as “Guardian Angels.”
■ Your Students’ Growth Will Become Your Own Strength
By using Knowledge Materia on the princesses, the protagonist can obtain “Skill Points.” The obtained Skill Points can be used to strengthen the protagonist’s own stats and attack actions. Acquire strength together with the princesses!
—By allotting the Skill Points you obtain to various areas, you can strengthen your status and actions.
—If you strengthen your attack actions, even the same attack can deal even greater damage.
■ The Reassuring Soldiers that Accompany the Player
The character that the player controls is the “commander,” who leads their troops with the aim of clearing their mission. During the game, soldiers will appear in great numbers, and the player will be able to freely organize the unit of soldiers they take along to the battlefield.
The Four-Way Deadlock
Soldiers are classified into four groups, and each group of soldier has a strong-weak connection to two others. If you feel like an enemy is too difficult, try changing up the combination of soldier types in your unit.
- Pawn – A soldier that attacks at close range using weapons. It is strong against Magicians and weak against Aviators.
- Magicians – A magic soldier that can use powerful attack magic. It is strong against Shooters and weak against Pawns.
- Shooter – A soldier that specializes in long-range attacks using guns. It is strong against Aviators and weak against Magicians.
- Aviator – A soldier that can has wings and propulsion equipment, and can move in the air. It is strong against Pawns and weak against Shooters.
—Magician: Magical Girl
Give Soldiers Commands through Tactics
A commander possesses several “tactics,” and by using them during battle, they can control their soldiers’ movements to a certain extent. From having your soldiers immediately stop in place to confine the enemy, to increasing your soldiers’ attack power, there are a variety of ways to use tactics. The tactics that each commander can use differ. Discover the best strategy based on the character.
Increase the Field “Dominance”
By defeating enemies, as well as having your army occupy relics on the field, the field “Dominance” in the upper-right corner of the screen will increase. By increasing Dominance, the tactics you can use will also increase, allowing for an even greater variety of strategy. Also, the rewards you get when clearing the mission will increase.
The Powerful “Commander Attack”
A “Commander Attack” is a special attack soldiers can use at the indication of their commander. It is an easy-to-use attack through which you can charge at a distanced enemy or fire a ranged attack at the enemies around you. However, your movement speed will decrease if you overuse it, so caution is necessary as it runs the risk of making it easier for enemies to strike.
■ “Relics” of Ancient Civilizations
On the Relic Islands, it is said that ancient civilizations lived possessing advanced technology. In the fields, “relics” of the ancient civilizations that support this legend have been left behind.
Using Relics as Traps
Left alone, relics are a troublesome existence that can deal damage to your army, but by the commander and soldiers “occupying” a relic, they can be used as a means to attack the enemy army. To occupy a relic, the commander and soldiers need to stay within its vicinity for a certain period of time, during which they cannot attack the enemy.
—The “Empress Thorn” relic restrains anyone who approaches with thorns. Stay within its vicinity to occupy and disable it.
—After occupying a relic, you can use it as a trap.
—“Abyss Smile” is an ominous relic that shoots out fire from its eyes and mouth.
—“Mana Tower” is a sculpture relic that restores allies’ HP when occupied.
Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story is due out for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PS Vita in Japan on January 25, 2018.
