Koei Tecmo announced they will publish the Gust-developed RPG adventure, Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on February 25, 2022.
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.
In this new area, Sophie will search for her friend with the help of other adventures including Ramizel Erlenmeyer. The lands are full of enemies and they’ll need to fight some tough battles. However, the developer state that the game has been streamlined to include no loading screens between battles, with a turn-based system allowing three characters on the field at once who can each switch to another character in battle.
The game builds upon the panel synthesis system featured in the Mysterious sub-series, where materials are placed into the panel slots to create new items. The game allows both aspiring and veteran alchemists to synthesize items in a way that is comfortable to them due to two different panel types – regular panels make it easier to create items, while restricted panels are complex to master but allow for items with stronger effects to be synthesized.
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.
