Gust and Tecmo Koei announced in a recent issue of Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation that it will be releasing a new Atelier title in Japan this year, exclusively for the PS3.
The new title is called Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, and it will be out on June 27 in Japan. The RPG begins right where the previous game, Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, ended and stars two alchemists, the happy-go-lucky female Escha and the calm sword-wielding male Logy. Players can choose which character to start with; from there, the same story will play out from different perspectives depending on who they picked. The game also has multiple endings.
The game is using the LTGL engine that’s commonly used in Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors franchise. Battles in the game now feature a six-person party who can switch between front and back rows.
There is currently no news on an English version of the game. Atelier Ayesha was recently out in North America on March 5.
