Today is Sunday (actually it’s Monday here in Tokyo), which means that’s time for some juicy Gust news. First on the menu is Atelier Firis: Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey, releasing in Japan on November 2nd for PS4 and PS Vita.
We get to check out some returning and new characters.
The charming Pamela Ibis is back, with her usual fluffy dress and flowing hair. Nanna Tremmel is a shop clerk in Raizenberg, while Henrikka Asmus is the manager of the hot springs in Frokke. Lukas Mistlud and Nicola Mistlud are Firis’ father and mother, while Bernd Lederer is the elder of her native village of Eltona.
We also get quite a few screenshots showing hwo Firis meets many characters within the game’s world, and how seasoned alchemists will give her advice as a beginner.
Lastly, the screenshots show quite a few costumes for Firis, “Snow bright,” “Investigation’s Passion,” “Flora’s Modesty,” “Alchemist Uniform,” “Vacation Resort,” “Wonderland” and “Fox Trek.”
Each costume has a different gameplay effect, respectively a reduction of LP consumption in the snow, increased research effect in a specific area, shop discounts, improved alchemy, increased chance to gather good materials, faster alchemy but slower movement, and faster movement.
