KOEI TECMO ANNOUNCES NEW PLAYABLE CHARACTER FOR ATELIER ESCHA & LOGY PLUS: ALCHEMISTS OF THE DUSK SKY
BURLINGAME, Calif. – December 16, 2015 – KOEI TECMO America today announced new features and a new playable character, Nio Altugle, for the digital-only release of Atelier Escha & Logy Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, which will become available in North America on January 19, 2016 for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.
Nio Altugle, the younger sister of the protagonist in Atelier Ayesha, only had a supporting role in the PS3 version of Atelier Escha & Logy, but can now be controlled in battle, adding another dimension to the gameplay of Atelier Escha & Logy Plus for the PlayStation®Vita!
This version of the game also comes bursting with new content, including brand new event scenes inspired by the Escha & Logy anime, which released in Japan in celebration of developer GUST’s 20th anniversary. These new scenes delve deeper into the relationship that titular characters Escha and Logy share, revealing a sweet secret story that was not available in previous versions of the game.
Additionally, Atelier Escha & Logy Plus includes all DLC from the PlayStation®3 version, new costumes, and — to the delight of fans of the Atelier IP — a series of new and more challenging missions and ‘boss’ enemies! GUST has also incorporated PlayStation®Vita-specific features into Atelier Escha & Logy Plus alongside minor balancing fixes to create a more level gaming experience for the PlayStation®Vita.

About Atelier Escha & Logy Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
Following the success of past Atelier releases on the portable platform, Atelier Escha & Logy Plus is the second standalone installment in developer GUST’s latest Atelier trilogy: the trilogy of Dusk. Preceded by the bittersweet Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky was released for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system in 2014 and is the first of the PS3 Atelier titles to feature a dual-protagonist story structure, in which the player can choose to see the story unfold through the eyes of the romantic alchemist Escha Malier, or the more levelheaded and rational Logix Ficsario.
