Atelier Resleriana: Forgotten Alchemy & the Polar Night Liberator occurs in the kingdom of Lantarna, 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 Polar Night Liberator is available on mobile devices via iOS and Android in Japan. The PC version via Steam will launch in January 2024.
