It’s recently been announced that the 17th game in the Atelier series, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, will be released in North America and Europe this June for the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.
The truth is, I gave up on the Atelier series a long, long time ago, when Atelier Rorona first came out and I played it on the Playstation 3. As much as I was a huge fan of the Atelier Iris series (I played them on the Playstation 2 way, way back), Rorona wasn’t the best and I didn’t get too far. The game being time-bound wasn’t something I appreciated.
Anyway, apparently Atelier Sophie will have a revamped alchemy system and will apply a day-night cycle which will affect the alchemy process and enemy encounters.
Here is the gameplay trailer:
I think I’ve been missing the Atelier series so bad that I’m actually thinking about giving Atelier Sophie a try. Who knows, I might be surprised? I really don’t know. :))
