0

Atlus has released new details about Vanillaware’s upcoming strategy RPG Unicorn Overlord, with new details about the characters as well as social activities.

Previous allied character details and information about the game’s world and story can be found in a previous post.

Characters

Gilbert (Protagonist’s Ally) (JPN VA: Mitsuki Saiga) “You’ve quite the grand vision for yourself, seeking to unify the entire continent.”

Gilbert is the crown prince of Drakenhold. Stepping into the shoes of his father the king, slain fighting the Zenoiran army, Gilbert is secretly amassing a force with the aim of restoring the kingdom.

Virginia (Protagonist’s Ally) (JPN VA: Aya Endo)“Today… the Knights of the Rose have their vengeance!”

A survivor of the Cornian royal family. Niece of Queen Ilenia and older cousin of Alain. When Cornia fell, she fled to Drakenhold.

Berengaria (Protagonist’s Ally) (JPN VA: Asami Seto) – “I told you plain, I don’t want you near me. Now go home and bury yourself in your beloved books, why don’t you?”

Former leader of the Tricorn Mercenaries. Widely feared as a deadly warrior, Berengaria established her own band of mercenaries and quickly grew it into a powerful force—until the day she abruptly disbanded the group and disappeared.

Aramis (Protagonist’s Ally) (JPN VA: Ryōtarō Okiayu) “And I, a simple wanderer. You can call me… Aramis.”

A mercenary from Drakenhold hired by the Zenoira army. While his speech and affect is more elegant than might be expected of a mercenary, no one can deny his skill with the blade. 

Social Activities

Players can deepen their bonds with allies welcomed into the army through battles, meals, and other activities. As your allies get to know each other better, they will unlock special conversations and have increased stats when teamed up in the same unit.

Rapport

The degree of affinity between characters is expressed through the Rapport stat. When characters spend enough time together, their Rapport level will increase. Certain character pairings can also trigger special Rapport Conversations.

Rapport Bonus

Rapport is increased mainly by having characters fight within the same unit. If you form a unit with characters with high levels of mutual Rapport, you gain a Rapport bonus.

Taverns

Rapport can also be built by sharing meals at taverns in the larger walled cities. If there are characters whose friendship you want to cultivate, why not invite them to a tasty meal?

The number of participants and the amount of Rapport received vary based on the meal course chosen.

Gifts

Characters assigned to guard a town can be given gifts. Gifts will build the guard character’s Rapport with the protagonist Alain, particularly if the gift is tailored to their likes and dislikes.

Ring of Covenant

The Ring of the Unicorn held by Alain has a counterpart, the Ring of the Maiden. Max out Alain’s level of Rapport with a character, and you can choose them to receive the Ring of the Maiden and perform the Rite of Covenant, in which both parties pledge fealty to each other forever. The number of potential companions is vast, but only one will be chosen…

Unicorn Overlord will be released for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S platforms on March 8, 2024.
