Gust has released the first details, artwork and screenshots for the upcoming Atelier Lydie & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting for PS Vita, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Atelier Lydie & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting follows the story of the twin sisters Lydie and Soeur who run a small atelier in Melveille, the capital of Adalett Kingdom. As both girls are still beginner alchemists, it’s their dream to become the best atelier in the country. One day, the girls discover a painting in the basement of the atelier which lets them enter its world full of fantastic scenery such as flowers and a floating island in the distance.
The painting’s world can be freely explored and contains materials which can’t be found in the real world. By gathering materials and using rare materials obtained from defeating monsters, the twin sisters alchemy skills can be increased. Goal is to clear challenges to receive regular evaluations from the country, to raise their atelier rank to become the best atelier of Adalett Kingdom.
The game’s synthesis system will be intuitive and easy to understand and introduces a new element called “Activation Items”. During synthesis, using these special items can have a great effect on the outcome of synthesis. Each Activation Item has a different effect, and adds emphasis to usual synthesis.
Battles take place in teams of two characters, with a maximum of three teams. Those in the front control the battle by attacking the enemies directly, the characters in the background act automatically as support which can lead to flashy combinations with the characters in the front. During battle, gathered materials can be synthesized by using the new “Battle Mix” system. By instantly creating new items, the “Battle-Exclusive Synthesis Command” will become available.
Atelier Lydie & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting will be released for PS Vita, PS4, and Nintendo Switch in Japan this winter.
