Following Akatsuki Games, Koei Tecmo, and Gust announcing that Plachta and Sophie Neuenmuller from Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will join Atelier Resleriana: Forgotten Alchemy & the Liberator of Polar Night, both characters received dedicated trailers.
The chosen character depictions are specifically from the first game rather than Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream.
Atelier Resleriana: Forgotten Alchemy & the Liberator of Polar Night occurs in the kingdom of Lantana, which once prospered thanks to alchemy. However, the practice is now nonexistent, not even retained as a memory. The protagonist, Resna, sets off on a journey to restore alchemy throughout the land.
Players will be able to progress without consuming stamina, and the home screen will alter depending on how far you have reached. The series’ general gameplay loop is retained, with characters able to get stronger via quests and a growth board. There are also art cards of previous Atelier games and what-if scenarios with rewards of their own.
You’ll be scored in battle, with awards given depending on performance. Synthesis will have multiple characters unite their efforts across over 100 recipes obtained in various ways. Players will also be able to progress the story without consuming stamina.

Atelier Resleriana: Forgotten Alchemy & the Liberator of Polar Night is available on mobile devices via iOS and Android in Japan. The PC version via Steam will launch at an unspecified later date.
There has been no word on a potential Western release.
