Atelier Sophie 2 Provides Details on Town Exploration and Requests
Koei Tecmo released new details for the Gust-developed RPG adventure Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream.
The publisher shares what players can do around the town of Roytale, the only town in Erde Wiege. As a central base of operations, she’ll use this place to gather information and resources to find her missing friend, Plachta. During her time there she meets Kati, the owner of the Crystal Sparkle Pavilion, her kind-hearted employee Gnome, as well as Pirka, the owner of Pirka’s Emporium, and these eccentric characters quickly offer her their services.
At the Crystal Sparkle Pavilion, Sophie will be able to accept a wide range of requests from the local townspeople, and through completing these requests, she will earn rewards and raise her reputation. As her reputation increases, Kati will offer advancement quests that, once successfully completed, will increase her Adventurer Grade – allowing her to take on more challenging requests with greater rewards. On the other hand, Pirka’s Emporium is a unique shop that can replenish and duplicate items – both important services for alchemists to utilize alongside synthesis.
As Sophie progresses through her journey in Atelier Sophie 2, scenarios will unlock for a variety of characters in Erde Wiege. Through these events, players will be able to learn of each character’s goals and dreams, as well as raise their friendship level with the character – leading to new skills being unlocked. Each character has their own unique scenarios: Alette dreams of getting rich quickly so she asks Sophie to help her learn alchemy, whereas Ramizel feels like she isn’t able to live up to everyone’s high expectations.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream continues the adventure of Sophie and Plachta who have traveled on many new adventures. After leaving Sophie’s hometown of Kirchen Bell, the two stumble across a tree that Plachta has seen in her dream. Upon inspection, they are pulled into a vortex, and Sophie wakes up in a world called Erde Widege, and here’s someone calling for Plachta, however, it’s not her friend Plachta, but a young alchemist with the same name. I’m sure you can see where this is going.
Further, NISA America will host a limited edition that includes, an art book, deluxe fabric poster, keychain, bonus BGM CD, and an exclusive DLC costume all packaged into a beautiful collector’s box.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream is coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on February 25, 2022.
