Nippon Ichi Software has released the latest batch of Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story information and screenshots, which introduce the battle styles of princesses Monomaria and Alpana, the world map, and missions.
If you missed our introduction last month to the battle styles of the first two princesses, Liliati and Veronica, catch upon that here.
Get the new details below.
■ An Overview of Monomaria and Alpana’s Battle Styles
In Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, four unique princesses appear. 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 battle styles of Monomaria and Alpana.
—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.
◆ Monomaria (voiced by Rarisa Takeda Tago)
A princess who works as a mercenary for the Noble Business Alliance. Since her parents’ untimely deaths, she has trouble even eating, but is struggling to overcome the trauma with her die-hard spirit. In order to fulfill her wish to avenge her parents and restore her family name, she tends to place strict regulations on herself.
Monomaria’s dedicated weapon is a Gatling gun. She is an all-rounder able to attack long range enemies with various gun attacks, and close range enemies with a bayonet.
Long-press the button to charge up and fire a high-power gunshot. You will become defenseless both while charging and after the attack, so you must be on the lookout for approaching enemies.
High-Angle Fire Attack
Take aim at the target and unleash a high-angle fire. The blast after impact will easily falter the enemy.
◆ Alpana (voiced by Yuuki Kuwahara)
A princess who founded the Great Kamara Faith of the North Kamara Clan Federation. She is full of kindness, but in order to save everyone, and to find what she is personally looking for, she sets out to travel the Relic Islands. She loves sweets, but she is worried about the size of her tail getting bigger.
Alpana is of the Dragon People can thus can move around by flying. Her dedicated weapon are twin swords, and her attack speed and high number of moves are top class among the princesses.
A special attack where Alpana charges up her power. By developing this technique, it is possible to attack in three directions.
An attack that instantly closes the gap between an enemy at a distance before swinging the sword downward.
■ World Map
◆ The Diverse Relic Islands
The Relic Islands consist of four countries, each different in climate and culture, and the player will travel all over the map with the princesses that serve them. The world map is dotted with action stages like forests and ruins, towns that act as bases, and more, which are denoted by symbols and patterned like a board game.
Symbols with the “Mission” mark above them will trigger conversation events and battles to advance the story.

◆ Dispatch and Head to Your Destination
On the map, you can organize your unit consisting of a “commander” and “soldiers,” and choose your destination to dispatch your army. This unit becomes characters controlled by th player during action parts.
The player’s army is not the only army on the map. Enemies and monsters also apepar. Since battles occur when your unit encounters an enemy, organize your unit with that in mind.
—Ally and enemy units are denoted by symbols.
—If you touch an enemy symbol, you will engage them in battle.
Deploy Several Units at Once
At times, you will encounter so many enemies that one unit is not enough to deal with them. By employing a “Generic Commander” (introduced below), the player can organize several units outside of the protagonist and princess’, and deploy them on the map.
◆ Generic Commanders
Generic Commanders, just like the protagonist and princesses, can be controlled by the player during action parts. They consist of Pawns, Magicians, Shooters, and Aviators, and can be used if the player employs them. Generic Commanders will not level up, but stronger commanders can be employed as the princess grows.
Various missions will occur on the world map. These include monster subjugation, defensive battles, ally escorts, defeating enemy armies, and more.
Outside of main missions that progress the story, there are also missions that delve deeper into the characters and setting.
Mission: “Meal Crisis”
The transport unit that supplies food and goods to the front lines is said to have been attacked by the enemy. Quickly move out with Liliati to exterminate the enemy unit.
More Mission Examples
An escort request reaches the private army led by Monomaria. Safely escort the client to their destination.
The instructor knights that Veronica rejected in the past attack out of resentment. Turn the tables on them.
◆ Events on the World Map
As you move along the world map, special icons outside of those that denote missions will appear. You can obtain items or trigger conversation events by moving your unit to these icons.
—A symbol with a treasure chest has appeared. Move your unit to the icon to obtain an item.
—When you pass through the symbol, you will obtain the item.
