Koei Tecmo today announced that the latest two installments of the Atelier series are heading to Australia and New Zealand.
Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk arrives first on PS Vita in January 2015, followed by Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea on PS3 in March 2015.
“Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk tells the tale of Ayesha Altugle, who, after the death of her grandfather and the disappearance of her younger sister Nio, now lives alone blending healing cures to sell in her workshop. Upon a vision of Nio appearing near her empty grave, Ayesha, convinced she is still alive begins her search to save her,” Koei Tecmo said of the Vita title, which includes new audio, bosses and missions. PS3 content can be carried over in to the title.
“Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea closes the final chapter in the Atelier Dusk series,” Koei Tecmo said of the PS3 game. “It is the incarnation of features developed based on community feedback of the previous Dusk titles, including new systems that combine ease of entry for newcomers and the choice to advance gameplay for long-time fans. The battle system will incorporate strategy and speed and the time management system will be free from restrictions; allowing unlimited play time. Alchemy RPG fans can also look forward to a straightforward menu in the engaging Synthesis system.”
Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk will be available on PS Vita from 13 January 2015. Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea will be available on PS3 from 12 March 2015.
