KOEI TECMO America got in touch to share some new information on Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, a game they’ll be releasing on PS Vita and PS4 on March 7! The latest entry in the long-running series will add some new things to the franchise, as is the case for sub-weapons. You see, on of the main weapon for each character you’ll also be able to equip two types of sub-weapons. This will allow you to customize characters with different skill effects and different types of damage.
KOEI TECMO America had this to say about Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey:
The second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga of the long-running RPG series, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey follows the adventures of the enthusiastic Firis Mistlud. After spending her entire life in an isolated town, Firis learns of the Alchemy Exam and decides to set off on a grand journey to discover the mysteries that life has to offer.
In the game’s vast new world, towns, environments and other locations reach up to ten times the size of those in Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book. With a host of new gameplay features and so much to explore, the element of choice plays a bigger role in Atelier Firis than ever before, and players are able to switch freely between three narrative paths that encapsulate the key themes of the Atelier series – Alchemy, Combat and Character relationships.
We look forward to playing the game next month, and if all goes well we should have a review for you as well!
