Koei Tecmo launched a new trailer for their RPG Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on March 7.

The publisher details the trailer:

Synthesis is an integral aspect of each Atelier title, and in turn, each alchemist’s adventure! Throughout her unusual journey, Firis will devise handy new recipes as she explores the vast land, encounters new companions, and discovers new materials. To match her wanderlust lifestyle, Firis’s Atelier takes the form of a portable Atelier Tent that enables her to synthesize wherever she may please. The Atelier Tent can even be personalized with a variety of keepsakes from her adventures, making it feel like her second home!

The Synthesis system in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey features exciting new additions to suit its newly nomadic nature. For example, Mass Synthesis allows Firis to create large items to overcome obstacles in her path, such as building a bridge to cross a river, or a boat to cruise across a lake. Deciding what to build not only changes the appearance and accessibility of various locations, but can also affect the course of the story! Furthermore, the effectiveness of items can be amplified with the use of special Catalysts, which grant bonuses and provide greater perks to the end result.

Additionally, pre-order costume DLC has also been revealed for fans who purchase the game from Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games or GameStop. This will unlock two costumes for Firis that are quiet adorable. Furthermore, they increase the chance of finding rare items as well as decrease synthesis and fast traveling time.
