After last week's rather scantily detailed announcement of Valhalla Knights 2: Battle Stance, Marvelous Entertainment has decided to let slip more details about the game.
Battle Stance is basically an updated version of Valhalla Knights 2, and the fact that there's a new battle system (called the "Active Action Battle" system) could mean that the difference is pretty significant.
This new battle system has resulted in the party count being dropped to four instead of six. It also lets players team up all their characters for a simultaneous attack. There are over 40 new items and weapons, new bosses, and some new quests to try out.
The game's also reportedly more user friendly. All over the game world, there are now Gate Crystals that instantly transport you to regions you've played through before. The status screens and the tutorial mode have also been improved as well.
Marvelous will also be giving away a strategy guide book (pic above) for those who pre-order the game in Japan. Judging by the reception to the US version of Valhalla Knights 2, it looks like chances that this update will get released outside Japan are slim. Importers can check out their online sources once the game is released on June 25.
