Gust revealed more gameplay information and screenshots for Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, which releases on June 26th for PS3. As in previous games, there will be a dual protagonist system featuring heroines Shallistera and Shallotte Elminus.
One wants to realize her dreams while the other girl wants to save her hometown, which is slowly dying: the seas are dried up, vegetation is withering away and the Blue Sea has turned into nothing more than yellow sand.
The world has been holding on but will eventually loose its color and fade into dusk. However, there is one beautiful oasis made of two streams that continues to thrive, which is where the two heroines meet each other.
In the game, the world will be much larger than in previous titles, with the overall theme being “a world of dusk.” There will be plenty of items to discover in the vast fields, including some that can only be garnered under certain circumstances.
The series trademark synthesis system will be based off Atelier Escha & Logy‘s but in a much easier to understand format. The in-game camera is now controllable as well, instead of simply fixed.
Atelier Shallie‘s actual game flow goes like this: field exploration, synthesizing, battle and objective cleared, which is then followed by an event — rinse and repeat.
You can check out the screenshots of the two protagonists, as well as the environments and battle system, posted just below.
