Koei Tecmo has released new screenshots and a new trailer for the upcoming Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey for PS Vita and PS4.
The new screenshots and trailer give a first look at the game’s new synthesis system as well as a glimpse at the fresh faces who aid Firis on her mysterious journey: Angriff Dahlmann, an aged and hearty mercenary, and a trio of alchemists – the talented Ren Breitner, the carefree Norbert Classen and the clumsy Dion Maier. Additionally, the publisher has revealed the preorder bonuses.
Synthesis is an integral aspect of each Atelier title, and in turn, each alchemist’s adventure. Throughout her unusual journey, Firis will devise handy new recipes as she explores the vast land, encounters new companions, and discovers new materials. To match her wanderlust lifestyle, Firis’s Atelier takes the form of a portable Atelier Tent that enables her to synthesize wherever she may please. The Atelier Tent can even be personalized with a variety of keepsakes from her adventures, making it feel like her second home!
The Synthesis system in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey features exciting new additions to suit its newly nomadic nature. For example, Mass Synthesis allows Firis to create large items to overcome obstacles in her path, such as building a bridge to cross a river, or a boat to cruise across a lake. Deciding what to build not only changes the appearance and accessibility of various locations, but can also affect the course of the story! Furthermore, the effectiveness of items can be amplified with the use of special Catalysts, which grant bonuses and provide greater perks to the end result.
A number of preorder bonuses are on offer for prospective players of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey. Preordering the game from Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games or GameStop will unlock two adorable costumes that provide Firis with useful bonuses: the Resort Vacation costume which increases the chances of finding high quality materials for use in synthesis, and the Wonderland outfit which decreases the time it takes for synthesis and fast traveling between landmarks.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will be released for PS Vita and PS4 in North America on March 7, 2017 and in Europe on March 10, 2017. The game will be available digitally on PS Vita and both physically and digitally on PS4.
