Valkyria Revolution ‘Vanargand’ character trailer, new characters Maria and Richer detailed

The motherly figure and the storyteller.

Valkyria Revolution

Sega has released a new trailer for Valkyria Revolution introducing the characters that make up the Vanargand.

As previously detailed, the Vanargand is an elite unit formed to oppose the Rus Empire’s Valkyria. It consists of Amleth, Godot Vilfort, Brigitte Ulrich, Helena Andersen, Blum Thomasson, Tilda Gade, Issac Berggreen, Daryl Rommedahl, Sara Benner, Jordur Kvist, and Ophelia A. Jutland.

In addition to the trailer, Sega updated the Valkyria Revolution official Japanese website with two new character descriptions:

Maria Schmeichel (voiced by Kikuko Inoue)

Valkyria Revolution

“Maria-senpai” was adored by Amleth and company like a mother, but she was kidnapped by Claudius, who was crown prince at the time. Even while she is 20 years-old, everyone thinks of her as motherly due to her overflowing love and kindness. She always gives priority to others over herself and says considerate things. To orphans who don’t know what it’s like to have a family, she is a sister, a mother, and a first love.

Richer Laudrup (voiced by Masako Ikeda)

Valkyria Revolution

The storyteller of Valkyria Revolution. While this war is said to be “a war of liberation thrown like a stone at the imperialist era,” it is also said to be “a war of aggression started by a small country” and “instigated by the Circle of Five,” but she tells the true story. She is the great-great-grandchild of Charlotte, a professor at the “Magic Arts School” that Amleth and Ophelia attended. She is a lower class noble who comes from a long line of researchers, and is both a first-class researcher and educator.

Valkyria Revolution is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on January 19 in Japan, and for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PS Vita in North America and Europe in Q2 2017. A PlayStation 4 ‘Prologue Demo‘ is due out in Japan on December 22, followed by a PS Vita demo on December 26.
