Valkyria: Azure Revolution details Brigitte, Blum, Helena, and Anti-Valkyria Unit

Latest screenshots show new characters.

Sega has updated the official website for Valkyria: Azure Revolution with details and screenshots of new characters Blum, Helena, and Brigitte, and the Anti-Valkyria Unit “Vanargand” first introduced in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

Get the information below. (Note: While the character descriptions are translated from what is published on the official website, the descriptions published in Weekly Famitsu are much more detailed.)

Blum Thomasson (18, Vanargand Private)

Valkyria: Azure Revolution

A childhood friend of Helena. A quiet boy with a kind, gentle personality. He is not very strong physically.

Helena Andersen (18, Vanargand Private)

Valkyria: Azure Revolution

A childhood friend of Blum. A girl doted on by her parents and raised to be super positive and super confident. She possess unbeatable strength and is very ambitious.

Brigitte Ulrich (27, Vanargand Sergeant)

Valkyria: Azure Revolution

A former instructor. She is serious, and a staunchly intelligent who sometimes seems cold, but is good at taking care of people. She is like another person altogether when she holds a gun.

Anti-Valkyria Unit: “Vanargand”

Valkyria: Azure Revolution

An elite unit formed to oppose the Rus Empire’s Valkyria. Its official name is the “Anti-Valkyria Unit,” but it is widely known as the “Vanargand.”

The unit is composed of only those suitable for Ragnite regardless of military experience. It is formed of the “Ragnite Elite” from all over the country.

Originally lacking in mineral resources and because of the recent economic blockade, the Jutland Kingdom is facing a Ragnite shortage. The scarce amount of Ragnite from within the country is collected and, with the country’s natural technological ability, used to create and deploy “Magic-Ready Weapons” (Ragnite Weapons).

As might be expected from a unit assembled to oppose the enemy Valkyria, it exhibits tremendous power against Magic Machines (tank-like vehicles) and armed forces, and is naturally the Jutland Kingdom’s Elite Unit with the strength of a thousand men.

Additionally, Sega has released official playthrough videos of the Valkyria: Azure Revolution “Battle Demo Ver. 1.0” included with Valkyria Chronicles Remastered in Japan. We’ve already added them to yesterday’s story with footage from the demo, but here it is again:

Finally, a 4Gamer.net report on the demo confirms a “Battle Demo Ver. 2.0” is planned for launch in summer 2016. Sega has yet to announce how users will be able to acquire the demo.

Valkyria: Azure Revolution is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan this winter.
