Claude’s showing in the trailer is very brief, just showing him shoot a storm of arrows. They seem to know we want to see the rest of the Deer’s new designs considering Hilda’s sequence is just about as short.
Hilda shows her devastating axe arm, and also shows off the ability her profile mentioned many weeks ago. She can drag enemies together with lightning to hit them all at once, which seems really useful if enemies are spread out or if archers are picking at you while you’re fighting others. Just to name two examples.
If you missed the earlier profiles, please check here.
If the pattern continues, we should get a trailer for the next batch of characters (Golden Deer?) tomorrow.
Note: Like before, the class profiles appear to describe each character’s personal skill when it says “[character] also”, or along those lines.
VA: Juri Nagatsuma A commoner born in the imperial capital, Enbarr. Songstress from the Mittelfrank opera company; she idolises Manuela, her senior. Friendly to all and actively dates to secure her future, but avoids certain nobles due to experiences during her songstress days.
One of Dorothea’s preferred classes. Mages are characterised by their magic-based elemental attacks. Dorothea can also create musical orbs around her. By attacking these musical orbs, you can cause explosions of various elements!
Late in 2021, S_Kaga showcased a remake of Vestaria Saga Gaiden, which would be renumbered Vestaria Saga II. Afterwards, it was revealed that the English release of Vestaria Saga Gaiden would be based on the remake.
(Screenshot belongs to S_Kaga and Vestaria Project.)
Today, S_Kaga announced that his team is also remaking the original Vestaria Saga I, in a similar manner. He mentions that the next game (III) is still in the preparation stages because he’s lacking motivation for the scenario due to various reasons. So right now, he’s focusing on this instead.
With the help of an excellent programmer, he says that progress on the game systems is going well. Although it’s a remake, a lot of effort is still required. So the expected release date is Fall by the latest. They will also use this as a springboard towards the trilogy finale…
The remake will introduce new elements (rules) besides the controls and layout. The main changes include:
Edelgard begins the trailer blitzing several enemy soldiers with fiery attacks that scorch the ground. This looks to be her Musou (read Super) attack. It finishes with a wild-looking flame tornado.
Hubert shows off some more of his dark magic, which causes dark arrows to rain down in a straight line. The second part is a demonstration of Hubert’s personal skill: his spells have a chance of piercing foes with spikes. Afterwards, Hubert can detonate the spikes at will.
Next is Dorothea who is presumably using the Mage class, with several differences from Annette.
A running theory currently is that characters’ preferred classes allow for unique attacks in that class for that character. We’ve seen that characters have skills that include all kind of effects (eg. Ashe can generate a wind field that traps enemies in the air, Hilda can charge up attacks while drawing in foes). So there’s likely quite a bit mages can do even with similar base kits.
Her big attack seems to include using music and meteors in a devastating combo. You can also see Thoron included in her showcase.
