Koei Tecmo revealed that the newest installment to Gust’s Atelier RPG series, Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings will launch on March 27, 2018 in North America and March 30, 2018 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam.

This release date is not far off from the December 18 Japanese launch date. With the gap between region releases closing in, fans of the series won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on the game.

Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings introduces Lydie and Suelle Marlen to the Atelier series, who will serve as this game’s protagonists. Both have different personalities that set them apart, but share a similar dream of moving away from their hometown to become Atelier Masters.

One day the pair come across a mysterious painting, as the title would suggest, and find themselves transported to its world. They discover a world where they can find hidden ingredients and new environments to better themselves at atelier magic and make themselves the best in the country.

Additionally, fans who wish to pre-order the game will gain access to bonus costume DLC inspired by alchemists Marie and Erie. This DLC set will also include useful alchemy ingredients along with additional battle-theme music. Also, if players pick a digital version of the game, they will receive two custom themes of PlayStation 4, available 4 weeks after the launch.
