Re-Discover the Mystery of Alchemy with Sophie, Firis, Lydie, and Suelle!
GUST has a knack for doing two primary things: releasing new Atelier games (nearly) every year, and re-releasing older Atelier games with extra bells and whistles. And, given the fact that Atelier Ryza 2 literally just released, I’m sure that you can figure out what this article is about (if the headline didn’t give it away already). That’s right, folks, GUST has announced that the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack is heading our way.
Comprised of Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Boox DX, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey DX, and Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings DX, the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack comes bundled with not only the entirety for the Mysterious Trilogy itself, but “a large amount” (whatever that means) of previously released DLC! And, if that isn’t enough, the DX versions also come with brand-new content, including a special digital artbook, photo modes, the option to speed up battles, and all-new story content!. Still want more information? Keep on reading down below for the official description of each game.
The first title, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX, follows the adventures of young novice alchemist Sophie Neuenmuller, who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic book imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold the secrets to the art of alchemy, and as Sophie experiments with alchemy throughout the story, she unravels the book’s forgotten memories and eventually sets out to uncover the strange tale of its origin. The DX version of this game includes a brand-new coming-of-age story for Sophie, as she struggles to step into the shoes of her late grandmother – the town’s reliable alchemist.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey DX is the second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga, following the adventures of the enthusiastic Firis Mistlud and her loving older sister Liane Mistlud. The sisters have lived their entire lives in the isolated town of Ertona, where Firis uses her unique ability to see where material crystals 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 DX version of the game adds four new vehicles and several exploration items to improve efficiency and speed, as well as seven new quests that lead to unlocking the powerful new foe Palmyra.
The gripping conclusion to the Mysterious Trilogy, Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings DX, follows the tale of alchemist twins — the reserved but caring Lydie Marlen, and the eccentric and carefree Suelle Marlen. The young twins work alongside their father at the family atelier, but due to his inexperience in alchemy, they rarely see any customers. While working hard to hone their skills, the duo uncovers a mysterious-looking painting, and as they reach out to investigate, the girls are drawn inside a world bountiful with rare materials perfect for alchemy! This fateful discovery is just the beginning of the twin’s adventure, leading them to their joint goal — to run the best atelier in the country! The DX version of the game introduces a new painting that connects Lydie and Suelle to the world of Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists. In order to help Lady Nelke develop the city, the twins will have to embark on new missions and fight against perilous new enemies!
The Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack is slated to release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on April 22. Are you looking forward to re-discovering the mysteries of alchemy? Let us know in the comments below!
