As was hinted at, Koei Tecmo and Gust have announced that a new Atelier game is on the way and that it is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The title is called Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey and follows the story of a girl named Firis Mistroot who is a young girl that lives in a mining town but discovers that she has a special ability to determine where ore is buried.
So far the only other character revealed is Firis’ older sister Learne who is an excellent hunter and one of the few people that actually leaves the town. Being an older sister, she often dotes on Firis. Currently little is known about the story of the game but it has been stated that it takes place after the events of Atelier Sophie and that the theme of the story focuses on traveling.
