Gust released a large batch of new screnshots of its upcoming JRPG Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, releasing in Japan on March 3rd exclusively for PS Vita.
We get to see the new appearance of Ayesha, who is now a legendary alchemist, and has a more adult look, with a dress resembling a fairy.
We also get a glimpse of the battle system, now involving six characters split in front and back row. As the front row executes actions, the assist gauge fills. When it’s full, the back row can execute assist attacks and assist guard to defend those in front.
Filling the Burst gauge can also cause the party to enter in Burst mode, that will massively increase attack power. In burst mode it’ll also be possible to chain up to three assist attacks, causing a consistent wave of damage on the enemy.
By using assist attacks during burst mode the finishing blow gauge will also fill up, and once filled, a spectacular finisher will become available.
We also get to see Keithgriff Hazeldine, Odelia, Linka, two new costumes for Escha and Logy and a costume for Ayesha that will be distribute in Japan as first print bonus.
