Discover the Mysteries of a Heartwarming Journey in GUST’s Latest Entry in the Beloved ‘Atelier’ Series, Headed to PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita
Burlingame, Calif. – November 22, 2016 – KOEI TECMO America proudly announced today the upcoming release of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld system (digital only) alongside a first trailer. Slated to release in Spring 2017, the 18th entry to GUST’s popular Atelier franchise takes place after the events of 2016’s Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, expanding on the series’ delightful narrative.
The second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga follows the adventures of the enthusiastic Firis Mistlud and her loving older sister Liane Mistlud. The Mistlud sisters have lived their entire lives in the isolated town of Ertona, where Firis uses her unique ability to see where crystals of materials are buried. By way of a fateful encounter, Firis learns of the Alchemy Exam and decides to take her first step into the outside world, setting off on a grand journey to become a certified alchemist and discover the mysteries that life has to offer! Players will experience a vast world with towns, environments and other locations reaching up to ten times the size of those featured in Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey takes the long-running franchise to greater heights with a brand new option to choose which narrative path to follow. After passing the exam, players are able to follow three different paths that focus on the three key aspects of the Atelier series – Alchemy, Combat and Character relationships. Choice plays a major role in the events that can be experienced throughout the game, with the ability to switch between the three paths at any point during this grand adventure.
A slew of assets showcasing the new protagonists and the many locations they will visit during their journey have been released today alongside an announcement trailer which highlights key features of this latest entry in the long-running Atelier series.
