True. But then, the same thing goes for it being impossible all Gallians studied at this academy.

Hmyeah, well, I'm still holding my breath on that one, especially with the latest videos. This could become quite a deep story.

Ah well, that's what makes us different. I myself am looking forward to this more darker part of the series.

And different culture..Western audiance perception of war are usually from movies (at least for me), which is different from the Japanese interpretation.

You can pretty much join military academy fresh out of highschool right? welkin was actually like 21 in the game which is quite old, so I think if we put them at the age around 18 or so, it's not necessary a highschool setting. unless you are saying since it's anime it has to have a high school setting???

and I like it way better if it has romance/comedy/drama...that's what sets this game apart from other.

If I want grit and dirty war experiences, I would play FPS or watch Band of Brothers...

The difference being is that Welkin is an officer, and judging by the very limited sample size of Welkin and Faldio we have from VC, like in real life, you probably have to have a 4-year degree to be an officer in the VC-verse milita and military. We don't know for sure if Varrot has a college degree but I am going to go out on a limb and say, "yes, she does."

The high school setting would be more akin to an enlisted training facility.... i.e. boot camp.

The original VC definitely did have romance, comedy, and drama, but it was clearly not the main idea of the game. The more important facet was the war story, through and through.

Right, the focus is on war story, but the game story also focu a lot to develop Welkin and Alicia's relationship. I haven't seem any other RPG in recent memory that has go this far and this explicit to show a romantic relationship between main characters. most game have either implied, or non-existent.

Lots of new stuff on the website and the blog. In particular, we've got a new main cast character. Dunno her name, but she's likely the "hot-but-cold-blooded-bitch" type. Sort of this game's Rosie.

There's also another TGS video, but it's just explaining the gameplay basics. Stuff any VC veteran should already know.

I freakin' second that. Can't wait to see this new Cordelia. She looks dead set to defend Gallia.

Question. Are we getting Engineers and Medics, or have they combined the two and anytime we see either we are to infer that the other is true as well? I don't have enough moonrune reading skills to determine this.

Is that Magali person Darcsen?

And looks like an Ojou joined the ranks.

Given her hair and eye color, and the fact that she has no surname, yes, she is probably a darcsen

Riiight. Color that hair light blue, those eyes red, give her a drill like lance and a shield... Class unknown my foot.

Jokes aside, not much eyecandy this time. One or two of the ladies, depending on your tastes, and the guys are... not really all that special.

Speaking of our newest additions, miss princess also has her very own page.

Google translations are bad, but it seems to say she's a rich elite kid with an ego. The usual. Also she's the class rep.

Not sure. The class has a different icon, but the characters address our blond haired medic with the same term used for engineers in the Japanese Valkyria Chronicles.

If they have labeled them medics, then they seem to be the engineers replacement, as the last slot was taken up by this new class, which seems to be a close combat class, explaining the claymore we saw in the trailer.

That video would be for the new "Armored Trooper" class. Said trooper is Joachim. Pic of him has already been posted.

Woohoo more Darcsen girls!! <3 <3 <3. This ones cute and she actually has longer hair then the other girls in VC 1. I'm sure Lynns hair was longer then Isara, Nadine or Cordellias but she had it tied up.

but there has to be more!! more i say!!. Though I'm a bit relieved, I was alittle worried when the only Darcsen i saw was that one main character with the glasses.

They're on the VC Japanese blog (which, to my dismay, I can't read).

Agreed. Looks like a shy type too. :3

In fact, you can absolutely tell each of the new characters personality just by looking at them.

Well, what they'd show on the outside anyway.

Unless there's going to be a second Valkyria other than the advertised one... she's a bit too busty to be the advertised one in disguise.
