Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk announced for PS3



Tecmo Koei has announced that it'll release Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk for the PlayStation 3 across Europe on March 8.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk brings new features, battle system additions, and brand-new storyline and characters. Fans of the series can also look forward to future DLC releases of new costumes, characters, additional areas, and more.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk follows the story of Ayesha Altugle, a girl who has been living alone in a secluded workshop ever since her grandfather died and her younger sister went missing a few years ago. She supports herself by making and selling medicine. As the story begins, she finds out that her younger sister IS alive somewhere in the world. Now, she must devote herself to finding her younger sister.

Here's some features via the press release:

New story and cast of characters: Ayesha's mission is to find her younger sister, Nio, who went missing after she left home to gather medicinal ingredients, and Ayesha will be supported and helped by those already close to her, as well as new friends she'll meet along the way. This new setting will embrace all the Japanese RPG fans who are looking for a new kind of alchemy RPG!

Keep a diary to delve deeper into the story: The new Diary System allows the player to keep a log of Ayesha's activities. Keeping up with the diary, Ayesha will be able to gain more recipes, bonus stats, and items. Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk does not have any time restriction on each mission; instead, every mission will be connected and will help determine your success in finding Ayesha's younger sister.

Turn-based battle system: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk features a turn-based battle system that emphasizes the importance of character positioning and distance from the enemies. Support and Assist attacks among your party will play a big role in each battle. Place your party members wisely and strategize your way to victory!

Back Attacks and unique character skills: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk has an updated battle system that allows players to move behind the enemy; attack them from the rear to score critical hits! Get familiar with the special skills and abilities of each character to maximize your battle experience!

Alchemy gets even more exciting by focusing on the process: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk features an updated synthesis system where Ayesha will learn special alchemy skills that she can use to fine-tune the details of the items that she synthesizes for more desirable results!

Sounds interesting. Might be worth picking up once i've finished playing Ni No Kuni, which judging by the reviews should be quite some time.

I've been keen to look into these sorts of games for ages... but never have really pushed through and bought one. I would want to start with a cheap option, any ideas of which ones are pretty good?

Well I would go and pick up the Iris trilogy on the PS2 (Bout 20GBP each) since i'm having a lot of fun playing them. Cant comment on the PS3 ones yet since I haven't played them yet

I'll be getting this after finishing Ni No Kuni too. (Never trade in your games ever! You will regret it!)

I don't like the fact that Tecmo Koei has got this since as I understand the release won't be dual audio & I think it will be download only. I would be ecstatic to be proven wrong on both counts though

Ugggggh. This, Agarest and Hyperdimension Neptunia is why I've pretty much given up on the JRPG scene. I'm a HUGE JRPG fan and a HUGE Anime fan. But I just thought these three series were beyond poor and seemingly only getting released for boobage. Fortunately we are getting gems like Nier, Ni No Kuni and Xenoblade to make up for it. Actually most of the ones on the 3/DS/PSP were awesome.
