Today, publisher Koei Tecmo announced that it will launch Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey both physically and digitally for PS4 and digitally for PS Vita and Steam in North America and Europe sometime in spring 2017.

In addition, the publisher also released a new trailer for the Gust-developed game, but not just any trailer, but the game’s first english trailer, which also reveals the Steam release at the end in addition to the console SKUs.

Here’s an overview of the game if you have never heard of it, via Koei Tecmo:

The second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga follows the adventures of the enthusiastic Firis Mistlud and her loving older sister Liane Mistlud. The Mistlud sisters have lived their entire lives in the isolated town of Ertona, where Firis uses her unique ability to see where crystals of materials are buried. By way of a fateful encounter, Firis learns of the Alchemy Exam and decides to take her first step into the outside world, setting off on a grand journey to become a certified alchemist and discover the mysteries that life has to offer! Players will experience a vast world with towns, environments and other locations reaching up to ten times the size of those featured in Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.

Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey takes the long-running franchise to greater heights with a brand-new option to choose which narrative path to follow. After passing the exam, players are able to follow three different paths that focus on the three key aspects of the Atelier series – Alchemy, Combat and Character relationships. Choice plays a major role in the events that can be experienced throughout the game, with the ability to switch between the three paths at any point during this grand adventure.
