Arc of Alchemist ‘Battle’ trailer; Axel, Micah, Rune, and Jester detailed

Meet the latest members of the investigation group.

Arc of Alchemist

Compile Heart has released a new trailer for Arc of Alchemist highlighting battles, as well as introduced to new characters Axel Darion, Micah Schneider, Rune Fontaine, and Jester Silverhawk.

If you missed it last month, read up on the tactical action RPG’s world, story, and first four characters here. An exploration-focused trailer was also released last week.

Get the character details below.

Axel Darion (voiced by Shintarou Asanuma)

Arc of Alchemist

The vice captain of the investigation group. Before being chosen for the investigation group, he was captain of the cavalry. Due to his infatuation for Quinn, he tends to be excessively nosy. Because of that, he has somewhat of a disappointing image. However, he has genuine talent as a knight. From when he first enlisted, he bested the record of one-person wins in group sham battles many times over.

Micah Schneider (voiced by Aina Suzuki)

Arc of Alchemist

A knight that supports vice captain Axel. She previously served as his adjutant. She is the most upfront and straightforward member of the party. Since Axel is annoying, she plays the role of the “straight man” who admonishes him. She is secretly developing feelings for him, but the road ahead is a tough one.

Rune Fontaine (voiced by MAO)

Arc of Alchemist

As the army cleric, she is in charge of the treatment of troops injured on their difficult journeys. She is good at sewing and cooking, and is friendly and caring to everyone. She also has the broad-mindedness to argue down the selfish Sandra. Micah evaluated her as the “Mother Power” of the group, and Rune herself feels joy in serving a mother-like role.

Jester Silverhawk (voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda)

Arc of Alchemist

He serves scouting and information gathering roles in the investigation group. He is extremely stoic and faithful to his duties. He is able to accurately judge a situation and deal with it calmly, and almost never panics. He was a member of the desert investigation group that failed 20 years ago, and barely escaped with his life.

Arc of Alchemist is due out for PlayStation 4 on November 29 in Japan.
