KOEI TECMO America has announced new content for Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea. The game is set to launch on January 17, 2017 digitally for the PlayStation Vita, and available physically in a Collector’s Edition only available at NISA’s online store for $54.99. More information can be found below:

Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea features a Synthesis system which allows players to craft more efficient items using ‘Synthesis Skills’. These abilities can be utilized by adding certain materials to the cauldron which can bestow a variety of effects upon the final item, such as granting extra uses or increasing the resulting effect. All materials fall under one of four elemental attributes: fire, water, wind and earth. When combined successfully, these elements can activate a ‘Chain’ which further enhances items, resulting in bonuses stronger than those obtained through executing standard synthesis.

Players can make the most of their powerful new concoctions when taking on the brand new boss battles that appear in Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea. The most prominent of those bosses being the powerful ‘Beast King’s Champion’; a foe of overwhelming strength which will require a skilled team equipped with strong weapons to have any chance when facing off with an enemy the likes of him!

Aside from tackling these new bosses, Shallistera and Shallotte can partake in a wealth of other missions through the ‘Life Task’ system in the game, now returning with new touch screen functionality specifically for the PlayStation® Vita. By progressing the story, characters will discover exciting new missions to undertake. Completing these optional objectives will reward the player with experience points, while Special Life Tasks will pit players against powerful enemies to really pump up the danger.

Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea contains a myriad of brand new costumes designed specifically for the Plus version of Atelier Shallie, ensuring that any Alchemist can craft their own unique style. Players can choose from the Crimson Guard, Grand Pirate Dress, Lady Villain and Cobalt Saber costumes to dress up their team, along with having access to all of the downloadable content originally released for the PlayStation® 3 version of the game.

    I have this on preorder. Haven’t played this series since totori, but I loved the time management aspect of that game. Looking forward to seeing how the series has evolved.

    Also, getting physical copies of vita games like this can be a pain in the ass if originally missed, which I found out the hard way with Ar Nosurge.

    • Still Here

      Funny you mention the time management because to my knowledge this is the first game in the series to not have it.

    • Panpopo

      Oh really? Interesting, thanks. Will have to see what else was changed as well.

    • Stevosan

      For one thing, The combat has 6 members acting in unison, 3 in the front and three that act as backup and can switched in anytime, make for an amazing chain of switching and fun strategies. It’s fantastic! 😀

    Of, just got a vita, but I don’t know witch atelier game should I start with.

    • Stevosan

      Rorona>Totori>Meruru is the Arland series with time-management and is little more dated, but has amazing plot and great characters.

      Then, Ayesha>Escha&Logy>Shallie. Which is a lot more streamlined and convenient, with a darker plot and better graphics of course, being newer games, but the Arland series still has its charms. Both are fantastic games, I recommend them both. Haha.
