With only two weeks left until the launch of Arc of Alchemist, we have a couple of new characters to introduce: Ace Nightlok and Erin Van Dyne - the last two members of the Neuhaven Expedition led by Erin's dad, Garett Van Dyne. Check out the character profiles below!
An excellent sharpshooter who works as one of Garett's subordinates. He is a man of few words, generally regarded as a calm and level-headed presence amongst his comrades. From time to time he acts as an advisor for Erin, and has a nice relationship with Darius' son.
Erin Van Dyne
The desert-filled RPG Arc of Alchemist will be heading to Europe on January 31, 2020, preorders are still available here.
Kongou is a former member of the Royal Navy who is currently associated with the Sakura Empire. She acts like a member of the Royal Navy, but her caring nature is more in line with the nature of the Sakura Empire!
Her accolades have given her the job of acting as the receptionist for the Joint Military Exercise, while also granting her the privilege of participating in the event with Yamashiro. She is doing her very best with her protégées to make the event a success.
Though her frame is small and cute, Saratoga holds an undeniable power, like the aircraft carrier she is named after! She is Lexington's younger sister who is trying to carve her way as an upcoming idol.
She's down-to-earth, but she does have a knack for teasing others. It isn't unusual for Lexington to catch her in the midst of it... a scolding will ensure, of course. She just can't get away from her older sister. Even still, she's always running off and indulging herself in her usual pranks. As to how her mischief will fare this time...? Nobody knows...
Kaga sees Akagi as her older sister, despite being as strong as her. She's usually friendly, but often acts as a counter to Akagi's tendency to going a little wild. That said, their temperaments in battle are similar.
She may sound cold at times, but she is a very compassionate individual and has earned the respect of many.
As a member of the Eagle Union, Atlanta is the eldest of the Atlanta-class cruisers, and the older sister of San Diego. Compared to her other younger sisters, Atlanta is more grounded, and is constantly trying to mend matters caused by her younger sisters' randomness. She tries to keep her place as an older sister, but sometimes she misses the mark in doing so. She decides to follow San Diego after hearing that she's going to participate in the Joint Military Exercise.
An elite of the Iron Blood, and older sister to Prinz Eugen. She's similar, yet distinctly different from Prinz Eugen in that she acts irritated in front of those that interest her... a typical tsundere. Hipper doesn't enjoy that Eugen knows this facet of her so well, but that doesn't mean they don't get along. Hipper was invited to the Joint Military Exercise as support. At first glance, it seems like she didn't want to participate, but in truth, she's excited to meet Eugen and the others.
Learn more about the Desert of Beginnings and unlock the true power of the Lunagear in this week's Gameplay trailer and Lunagear screenshot batch! The desert-filled RPG Arc of Alchemist will be heading to Europe on January 31, 2020 for the PlayStation®4 physically and digitally, preorders are available here.
The new Gameplay trailer shows various gameplay systems:
• 7+ Playable Characters: With the new updates for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch release in North America and Europe, you can now play as 7+ characters! Each character specializes in different weapons, but Quinn can utilize all the weapons available! She can master the arts of the Lance, or even a Crossbow! The choice is yours!
• Gimmicks and Traps: Around every sand dune lie gimmicks and traps that can harm or slow down your party's progression. Gimmicks such as mechanical pillars, deadly spikes, and gas fields should be avoided at all costs, but keep spare potions just in case!
• Base Building, Character Customization, and Upgrades: The Base is an area for your squad to regroup, rejuvenate, and upgrade stats for future expeditions. Create new facilities that can add bonuses to a character's base stats. Buy new equipment and weapons to strengthen a character's attack and defenses. Adjust the formation of your squad before battle and even on-the-go! As you level up your characters and gather currency, players are able to increase a character's base stats and learn new passive and active skills. Players can even change character skins to keep your squad looking fresh on the battlefield!
Lastly, we have a Lunagear screenshots!
Use the Lunagear and master the four different Orb Elements: Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth. Use one element, like the Fire Orb, to summon a fire projectile or even combine two elements to summon more powerful attacks, which can be useful against huge, mechanical bosses!
Up-and-coming rookie Shimakaze is quick and a great listener: talents which she utilises on the battlefield. Unfortunately, she seems to lack a sense of danger, so it's not unusual to find her in unexpected trouble.
She is constantly reminded to be careful, which she takes to heart, and is showing growth as she prepares to join the Joint Military Exercise. Of course, many of her seniors get first pick at good opportunities to fight, but she is still seeking to become the MVP along with her partner, Suruga, as she cleverly works her way to bend the rules of the event.
Suruga is a brand new member of the Sakura Empire fleet who joined at the same time as Shimakaze. She wants to show that she can handle any work assigned to her. Upon first glance, she seems difficult to approach, but that's only because she's trying to hide her personality issues and her kindness. That said, she is having a hard time getting rid of the stress building within her, and keeps pointing out oddities inside her mind.
One day, during an exercise, she ends up partnering with Shimakaze. Little did she know that this would change her fate quite drastically...
Akagi is one of the higher ranking members within Sakura Empire who is known to speak her mind freely, even to her leader. She is often found berating others if it helps the cause of the Sakura Empire, and those offended by her do not often speak up as she is very powerful. That said, her words are well-grounded.
Coupled with her strength, she is in no short supply of either friend or foe. She planned the Joint Military Exercise, and is, in many ways, causing quite a stir.
