In celebration of 20 legendary years of Gust Studio’s Atelier Series we’re given a trailer looking back at the rich game history. The trailer is set to a lovely music box melody and then swells up to convey the prosperity of the series. And that’s not all, Nelke and The Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers Of The New World is going to have more opportunities to enchant fans, this time with a western release for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.
Here’s what players can expect from the title:
Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World puts players in the shoes of Nelke von Lestamm, a young noblewoman who has always been fascinated by the ancient legend of the Sage of Granzweit; a tale of the Granzweit Tree which is said to bestow great power upon those whom discover it. As she grew up and learned her skills were not in alchemy, she studied hard to become a government official and help those around her. The day Nelke is set to graduate the academy, however, her life changes forever as she hears a rumour that the tree can be found within her father’s lands near the small village of Westwald. Her father grants her permission to search for it on one condition – that she becomes governor of the area and develops Westwald into a prosperous city.As players work hard to build Westwald up from a quaint village to a flourishing city, they will require the aid of the many alchemists that settle in the town. Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World features famous alchemists from previous entries across the Atelier series, including those from the Salburg, Arland, Dusk, and Mysterious trilogies.
Stay tuned for more details. It’s due this year in Japan, but there’s no word on the western release date.
