Meet the Grave Sinners of Valkyria: Azure Revolution

Japan News - Mon, 04/25/2016 - 08:00

It's been a while since we last heard from Valkyria: Azure Revolution, Sega's PS4 follow-up to one of the PS3's (and PSP's) best games, Valkyria Chronicles. Now the company's loosening the tap a bit as the game's planned late-2016 release date draws nearer. A new issue of Famitsu and additions to the game's official site reveal more key characters in the main story, called the "Five Grave Sinners". The Sinners are leading figures in the Kingdom of Jutland's war against the Empire of Rus, each with their own sphere of talent and influence, and secretly nursing a thirst for revenge.  

Amleth, the game's lead, is a peerless warrior and runs the Vanargand, an elite military unit intended to counter Brunhild, Rus' Valkyria warrior.
