Atelier Firis

KOEI TECMO America has announced that Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will be making its way west on the PlayStation 4 and Vita next spring.  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.

To celebrate the occasion, KOEI TECMO America released a new trailer for the game that can be found below:

The brief debut trailer showcases Firis and her sister Liane Mistlud exploring the game’s vibrant world. Watch as the pair make their way through arid deserts and verdant fields complete with stunning vistas. The series has always featured some pretty over-the-top outfits for its main characters, and we also see them proudly represented in this early bit of footage.

Atelier Firis is the second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga. The game follows the adventures of Firis Mistlud and her loving older sister Liane Mistlud. The two  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. The game features a sprawling world that’s being described by the publisher as 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 offers a broader narrative than ever before by allowing players 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 their journey.
