Old Recipes Produce New Results in Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland

Let’s get synthesizing!


Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland Banner


Koei Tecmo has released today two new trailers showcasing the synthesis mechanics for Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland.

Titled “Alchemy with Elmerulia”, these videos give players the chance to check out how the all-important alchemy mechanic will work this time around. As players venture through Arland, they will come across a variety of materials which can be used to synthesize items. By synthesizing as many different items as possible, players will be able to decrypt their codex which, in turn, will unlock even more recipes for them to use.

New to Atelier Lulua is the ability to use a raw material with the Awakened Effect. When used, this effect will give the item an additional element — such as adding a Fire Damage Awakened Effect to a Thunder Bomb, resulting in a Thunder Bomb dealing both lighting and fire damage at once!

Koei Tecmo has also cooked up a special Limited Edition version of Atelier Lulua, an NISA Online Store exclusive, as well. This Limited Edition will include plenty of extra goodies alongside the base game, including a hardcover art book, the ‘Sound Archives’ official soundtrack, Lulua & Rorona keychains, and a deluxe cloth poster, all bundled together in a special Lulua-themed collector’s box.




Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is slated to release on May 21 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. Are you looking forward to heading back to Arland once again?  Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
