Many New Valkyria Chronicles 3 Trailers
Story, characters, gameplay, bonus items and more shown.
Sega recently shared lots and lots of promotional videos for Valkyria Chronicles 3 (thanks for all the tips, Mario!). In case you missed them, have a look here:
First, a retail promotional video, which covers all areas of the game:
The theme song playing in the background through most of the story part of the trailer is "Moshimo Kimi ga Negaur no Nara" by May'n.
The "Blitz," or "Battle of Live Tactical Zones," system is covered in the second half of the trailer, which shows the new gameplay features and character growth system, along with the special skills for main character Kurt, and heroines Imca and Reila.
Next, a clip recapping the Valkyria Chronicles background story:
Next, as a means of showing the basic game flow of Valkyria Chronicles 3, a look at the game's second chapter, "The 72 Hour Combat."
Valkyria 3's story is set up as a series of chapters. The basic flow of each chapter begins with a recap of the current state of the war. After some chitchat in your base (in the clip, a discussion between Kurt and Nameless head Ramsey Kurou), you're shown a mission map. This lists points of interest via pins. In the clip, you can see red pins marking primary missions, which you must clear in order to progress in the story, green pins marking free missions and markers for event scenes (I think the markers are supposed to be film reels). Select a mission, and you're taken to a briefing screen where you can get info about the mission, build up your characters, and so-forth.
Towards the end of the clip, we're shown how the mission map undergoes changes depending on the results of your mission. In the example shown, clearing the mission leads to a branching point. The chapter will progress differently depending on the next mission that you select.
Finally, a look at the game's first piece of downloadable content, which is being included as a download code for pre-orderers. The "Chapter 0" download content tells the story of Kurt's first campaign. You'll command a group of new soldiers in the front lines of an attack on the imperial army.
Valkyria fans should watch this clip for a guest character appearance from Valkyria Chonicles 2. (Details here.)
