Sega has updated the official website for Valkyria Chronicles 4 with information and screenshots on new characters Roland Morgan, Bryan Haddock, Mary Bennett, and Ruch, as well as the Centurion cruiser.
Get the details below.
◆ Edinburgh Navy
Roland Morgan (voiced by Michihiro Ikemizu)
Edinburgh Navy colonel, and captain of the snow cruiser Centurion. As someone with an extremely gentle and mild personality who never panics in a critical situation, he is the mental pillar of the warship. He can also be strict, having once been feared as the “Demon Captain,” and is tough on both himself and others, letting out a sharp roar when necessary. He lost a warship in the past, and is operating with strong preparedness as not to sink the second time around.
Bryan Haddock (voiced by Takuya Kirimoto)
Edinburgh Navy first lieutenant, and chief navigator of the Centurion. He is somewhat neurotic, which makes him difficult to approach, but is calm and sensible at his core. He is a respected man who has supported Morgan on the battlefield many times since his first mission, and is something of a vice captain. As a navy supremacist, he tends to look down on the army and clash opinions with Claude.
Mary Bennett (voiced by Hiroko Ushida)
Edinburgh Navy master sergeant, and communications officer of the Centurion. A woman with a calm atmosphere and undying smile, she is “everyone’s big sister” on the warship. Her gentle personality exudes a fine upbringing. She is an extremely hard worker, working outside of her duties to clean the warship, patrol, and so on during the day. She is also good at cooking.
Ruch (voiced by Shino Shimoji)
Edinburgh Navy sergeant, and tracker of the Centurion. As a prodigy who skipped grades to graduation at Navy Training School, she is familiar with the latest technology, and joins the fleet after her abilities were recognized. She does not talk to anyone much, perhaps because of serious and level-headed character, or strong tone of voice, but is close with Mary.
Built in secret, the Edinburgh Navy constructed cruisers for use in battle. Three warships of the same model were built, and the Centurion, which Claude and the others embark on, is the second of the three. It can presumably move through fields of ice, and is equipped with a huge ram for breaking ice at the warship’s head. At over 230 meters in length, the Centurion is like a tank riding on ice as if striding across a stretched out crevasse. This giant warship’s ability to travel on land is thanks to technology given to Edinburgh by the United States of Vinland. Those details are country-level top secret.
If you select “Ship Order” in Command Mode during battle, you can receive support from the Centurion. As for the types of support you can receive, you can develop equipment for your warship to strengthen the performance and usage frequency of Ship Orders during battle through “Warship Body Equipment Development” in Research and Development. Since the amount of times Ship Orders can be used is limited and cannot be recovered during battle, be sure to consider the timing.
Types of Ship Orders
Displays enemies in Command Mode that have yet to be discovered within a certain range, as well as those that have disappeared from view. This Ship Order is available from the beginning.
Executes bombing on a designated area, dealing damage to enemies within its range.
Heals the HP of ally soldier units, and performs injury evacuation when a character in a state of near-death.
—Vehicle Emergency Repair
Revives an ally vehicle unit that evacuated during battle. A vehicle cannot normally be revived after it is destroyed during battle, but you can revive it by using this Ship Order.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is due out for PlayStation 4 on March 21 and for Switch this summer in Japan, and for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in 2018 in the Americas and Europe.
