The Atelier series will continue its item-crafting ways next year with Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. According to publisher Tecmo Koei, the Gust-developed RPG and follow-up to Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk will be available for PS3 on March 11. Atelier Escha & Logy will allow players to control either character in two connected storylines, with Escha’s tale being a more traditional Atelier offering, with plenty of alchemy and assignments, and Logy’s focused on action and exploration.
The duo is part of the Development Department of the city Central. Escha will use her experience with ancient alchemy and Logy his knowledge of the latest techniques to help stave off the planet’s approaching twilight, the Dusk End. Additions and updates to the series include an increase of battle party size from three to six, a streamlined synthesis system, queued support attacks, and consecutive use of created items that gain power during combat.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is scheduled to launch on March 11 for PS3.
