I was kind of hoping the sequel would get away from the Valkyria thing, but if there's an Artificial Valkyrur Corps that doesn't seem to be happening... Oh well. I guess with Valkyria in the name there's not much of a choice, is there?

That's one of those little things that go without saying, isn't it?

Damn. Due to my own musings, I've equated Artificial Valkyrur Troopers with Tesla Troopers. AGH.

Looking at the new voice actors, looks like the academy is the grassroots foundation of a war intervention group...now we got Anew coming back...too bad Setsuna and Lockon are out hunting a certain rogue prince in the desert to help CB fend off Gihren's super gundam generals.

Today's update is taking awhile to properly finish... The blog entry has been uploaded, though. Can anyone translate it?

EDIT: Update is finished. There are some new character videos, for Cosette (umm, her video is... weird), Zeri (sp?), and Juliana (whose still a bitch).

We also got a look at Shocktroopers and their new evolutions (the Gunner branch looks good for hitting lots of enemies at once). Also confirmed, it's not Edy in VC2. Her name is, humorously, Licorice Nelson. So she's definitely a relative of Edy's.

People, start peeling over the info.

Wow...so Cosette is afraid of blood and the smell of it and can't do her job as a medic...understandable, you can train forever in class, books and other things.

But nothing could prepare her for the reality of her job in a time of war I guess. Poor girl, too bad Fina, Mina and Gina weren't around to help her, they were pretty confident medics.

Clarification. Bitch in all of the best ways, or bitch in a horrible, more reminiscent of the "C" word way?




Come to think of it both of those sound pretty awesome... Wasn't really a Selvaria fan though, so unfortunately I'll still probably be pretty meh on her. Hopefully they'll come out with another equally bitchy woman to fill my needs.

Lycoris, NOT Licorice.

A video on the website spelled her name as "Licorice", I kid you not. I laughed at seeing that name. Here's a link:

They sound the same, so I guess you could be right too.

Well, I've seen odder names. But if we see a guy named "Traktor", I called it.

That reminded me of a naming kerfuffle in a different series (SHUFFLE!). One of the characters had a twin named (officially) Lycoris, but due to the usual ambiguity that is romanization, she was rendered Licorice in some fansubs (According to TVTropes, anyway. The ones I saw had all the proper names).

I noticed they also refer to the class as "Shocktrooper and Gunner." It looks like the Shocktrooper class will finally get to wield REAL machine guns that fire actual rifle cartridges instead of those shitty 9mm pistol rounds. I guess that would entitle them as Support Gunner or Squad Automatic Weapon User. They seem to be also carrying a ammo backpack, kind of like wielding a deployable MG42, Browning M1919, or a M240 into battle. I also see that they carry a tank on their back when wielding a flamethrower.

I wonder when will they be able wield real Assault Rifles, not the ones that fires 9mm. I also wonder can their weapons be given other attachments other then flamethrowers like a shotgun attachment or a tactical scope similar to the one they put the StG 44.

Bonus points if the backpack doubles as an extended magazine, 'Panzer Cop-style'. If, on the other hand, they're meant to be VC's analogue of RA3 Peacekeepers, they'll need a good shotgun...

I wonder if one would be able to exploit a certain weakness of such weapons if you encounter their Imperial mirrors...

Given how much in terms of mechanics is inherited from the first game, the answers there would be a mix of rewards and upgrades.

Or at least give us a shotgun attachment on our SMG/Machine Guns for clearing houses without setting it on fire. They got Flamethrower attachments with no backpack fuel tank so why not shotgun? Come to think of it, why the hell did we stop using flamethrowers in modern day conflicts anyway?

Ethical reasons, and the fact that modern day conflicts take place at too long of a range to use a close range weapon like a flamethrower.

They've also been largely phased out in favor of thermobaric weapons.

That too. Ethics played a considerable part, though.

Actually, of all countries, I think the US of A still has some Flamethrowers in service.

Back on topic, has there been any updates? Since this thread is basically my info feed on VC2 (beings that I can't read Japanese. I just had to take German in high school), what exactly do we know now, besides Edy's Cousin/Sister/something being named after Twizzlers?

Next update will be on the 10th (which, unfortunately, is the same day as my first exam). Seems to now be weekly until the release of the game. Hopefully we'll get something useful out of it.

Btw, nice Twizzlers reference.
