Singaporean developer XII Braves is announcing the upcoming release of its latest strategy mobile RPG title, Valiant Force 2. Players can pre-register for the game now on the Google Play Store. A direct successor to XII Braves’ beloved Valiant Force, released in 2016, long-time fans can expect this new instalment to return to the hero collection genre with a fresh take on its original turn-based, tactical gameplay. Currently in development, Valiant Force 2 will be available for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
The original Valiant Force was a critically acclaimed success in the region and was the recipient of the People’s Choice Award at the 2nd International Mobile Gaming Awards in 2017. In Valiant Force 2, fans will recognize a colorful cast of characters including the heroic Valiants and the fearsome Dark Lords—alongside never-before-seen original heroes like the moneyed Sons of Midas and the seafaring Stormborn League.
Excitingly, the cast of Valiant Force 2 includes renowned Japanese voice artists such as Ishikawa Yui (Attack on Titan, NieR:Automata), Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (Sword Art Online, Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer), Saitō Chiwa (Akatsuki no Yona, Genshin Impact) and Narita Ken (InuYasha, Rurouni Kenshin).
Kito Akari (Nezuko from Demon Slayer) lends her voice to Valiant Force 2’s intrepid protagonist, Elise Arkwright. Hara Yumi (Overlord’s Albedo, The IDOLM@STER’s Takane Shijo) voices Elise’s counterpart, the enigmatic Maeve Astraea.
Additionally, Valiant Force 2 will feature an evocative original soundtrack composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto, who also composed the original soundtrack for the award-winning, critically acclaimed Final Fantasy: Tactics.
About Valiant Force 2
The year is 1268 VE, and the realm of Arathos is rife with chaos and disorder. In the wake of the Crystal Bearer, Leon Daracan’s, sudden departure to Feldria, the hearts and minds of the people are ablaze with suspicion and fear. With the Crystal of Arathos missing, Arathos is vulnerable, exposed to unknown dangers beyond its shores. Some are quick to condemn Leon for dooming the realm, while others wait anxiously for his return, along with the four Valiants who aided his quest.
As tensions rise across the land, a young and hopeful knight, Elise Arkwright, grapples with her disappointment in the man she’s modelled herself after. Together with her closest friends, Felix Vulcan and Maeve Astraea, Elise must navigate the troubled waters of an Arathos steeped in uncertainty. Elise strives to do her duty as an upstanding knight, to fill the void left behind by the Hero of Arathos, but nothing is ever as it seems. In the backdrop of Elise’s quest, confusion and darkness brew in the name of reinventing, it seems, even the very nature of truth.
