Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will be available on June 7 in North America and June 10 in Europe for PlayStation 4 (retail and digital) and PlayStation Vita (digital), Koei Tecmo announced today.
Developed by Gust, who believe it “to be the new standard for the Atelier series” after rebuilding the Alchemy system and creating a visually stunning world, The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is an RPG that stars Sophie, a young Alchemist:
