Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
Grab your mortar and pestle, it’s time to get back to work. The Atelier series continues today with the release of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky for PS3. Players will once again gather ingredients and craft items and potions, take on assignments, and battle monsters. This time around, there will be two storylines that focus on different gameplay elements, with Escha’s portion replete with crafting and synthesizing, while Logy’s sections are geared towards action, exploration, and customization. Other changes include the bump from three party members to six, a streamlined synthesis system, and a new alchemist ability that increases item effectiveness when used successively.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is now officially available for pre-order. Tecmo Koei has announced that gamers who pre-order at GameStop will receive a costume set of ‘Apple Pirate’ for Escha and ‘Tails Butler’ for Logy, while Amazon pre-orders will receive the ‘Enchanted Witch’ costume for Escha. Images for all costumes as well as the official box art and a dozen new screenshots are available below. The official website has also gone live.
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.
