‘Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2’ is a game that combines role-playing games and simulation genres, and the player manages the students and decides their timetable and subjects. Through this, students can develop their abilities and skills to create the hero they want. Afterward, players will send students to various places in Valthiria to perform quests and defeat enemies through turn-based strategic battles to build the school’s reputation. When the grade changes, senior students graduate and new students enter, so it is of utmost importance to manage the school according to the constantly changing student list.
- Create your own hero school
As the principal of the school, the player must develop the hero he or she wants by assigning classes and subjects to students. A school that focuses on magic classes and trains great wizards or warriors? If not, you can perform all the elements little by little and evenly, and the type of quests depends on the player’s operation method. Some quests may require you to build a specific roster, and it’s up to you how you train your students to adapt to the threat.
- Planning, Forecasting, Executing, and Repeating
Forecasting and strategizing are the most important skills for success in a unique turn-based combat system. Since the efficient class composition and attacking the enemy’s weaknesses are key factors, players can experience both battles with optimized team combinations and battles with calculated risks. It is up to the player to solve the given task, whether playing safely or recklessly.
- Manage an ever-changing student list
As a principal, players will want to focus on nurturing and managing the best students. However, it is also the player’s duty to make sure that every student who enters the school sees the light. Students are required to graduate after staying at the school for three years, and this transfer will affect the school’s reputation. As talented students cannot be re-enrolled for the following year, it is important to keep in mind that taking good care of all students is a key virtue to keep the school competitive and to reach the top spot.
Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2 will release the Steam Early Access version in the first quarter of this year, and the console version will also be released in the second half of this year.
