The latest issue of Famtisu Weekly has some more information on the upcoming title of the Atelier series, Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings. This week we get a look at some characters that will be making it into Atelier Lydie & Suelle. Being the third game of the Mysterious series, there are some recurring characters from previous games of the subseries. Thanks to Gematsu for the translation.
Here are the new (and old) characters revealed, via Gematsu:
Firis Mistlud and Ilmeria Von Leinweber from Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will appear in Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings.
Firis uses a bow as her weapon. Ilmeria is an alchemy master.
The magazine also reveals new character Roger Marlen (voiced by Takehito Koyasu), Lydie & Suelle’s father, who is described as a no-good father and mad scientist with top-notch painting ability.
It’s a little surprising that Firis uses a bow as opposed to a staff, since she’s an alchemist as well, but it’s probably for the best to prevent character redundancies. The more weapon types the better, after all.
There’s also a little bit of information on the Ambition Notebook:
Suelle will have an “Ambition Notebook,” which will have ambitions to complete that increase your reputation. By increasing your reputation, you will receive a test from the kingdom, and if you pass, you will rank up.
Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings will release early 2018 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
