So you throw Isara, Alicia and Selvaria together. Would that be win?

Valkyrur are only women from what I understand.

At the Barious Desert ruins it said inside the sanctum, "Welcome Sister Valkyria."

EDIT: And all the statues you see of them look like women.

I remember it being mentioned somewhere else in the game that they are all female, though i can't for the life of me remember where. Can anyone else?

All I remember is the ancient common knowledge legend which specifically speaks of the Valkyrur as a man.

I think that after Selvaria and Alicia revealed that Darcsen aren't the stuff of legend, and that anyone might hold the blood of the Valkyrur, there was a mass experiment of people testing out to see if they had Valkyrur blood. The military jumped on this to get a chance to recruit them, and that brings us to where we are now.

Looks like what happen at the 1st game didn't please them.
I'm not surprised. Discrimination doesn't exactly follows logic, so while being told that the Darcsen Calamity was a lie might sway the hearts of some, others simply continue what they've been doing all their life.

And then you hear your own queen is a filthy little Darcsen...

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

Agree too.

I won't be surprised if Cordelia's still in the game (I guess) and the GRA wants to assassinate her.

Hah, Edy and Homer doing an interview, is that what I see on the blog?

Aside from that the screenshots are looking interesting. There's obviously a drop in graphics quality but it's not terrible. I'm interested in some of what is on there though. There's a little multi-section mini-map on the overhead map screen shot, maybe branching missions depending on how you progress to each section. Also looks like equipment will be more varied, they've got the little stat polygon going on there. Not to mention a Morale meter? That should be interesting...

Clearly some new vehicle designs. The OpFor has something that looks like an American Calliope rocket unit.

Huh? Wonder what that "morale" counter is about? I'm guessing if troopers die it goes down, and goes up for every kill? And knowing the Japanese... combat boosts if it hits a certain point.

Also just noticed that they do actually run around in Gallian military outfits during the battles! Hooray for common sense!

Edit: Wow. Just noticed something. In that screenshot where it's the Gallian tank's turn, it's currently targeting what looks to be a heavy-style tank. The tank's name in Katakana spells out "Dandelion". A dandelion is a member of the family Asteracae. Now, take a guess as to what prominent plant family that an Edelweiss belongs to? Seems like Gallia started mass production on the super tank...

Edit2: Looks like they got rid of tank tread HP as well.

Edit3: Interesting... looks like they've got multi-zone/multi-stage maps this time around from that map screenshot.

This picture has a unit class symbol I'm not familiar with. New classes?! (It appears to be Cosette with this class)

That's the symbol that was on Fina^3. So looks like Medics will be active soldiers this time around.

I just noticed Cosette carries that medical ragnite thing, so that makes sense.

Interesting development... does this mean that they can heal things other than incapacitation? Can we still call them with any other unit? I imagine they'd be... ah... fragile.

She apparently carries a rifle too:

( more scans here: http://rpgland.com/news/more-valkyri...oat-confirmed/ )

This shot suggests vehicles can be used as armored troop transports:

I'm curious as to what role the navy will play in this game, there are scans of artwork, but does it say whether or not they will have impact on the gameplay?

I'm loving the increased customization. Anything that can make my army feel more like my army is welcomed.

A combat medic. Does this mean no more self healing ?

More importantly, camouflage on my tank ? How does this affect the status on the vehicle afterall ?
