Koei Tecmo America has recently detailed on the enhanced battle system and new features for the latest entry in the Atelier franchise, Atelier Firis.
Firis’ journey will take her through beautiful and unexplored regions with unexpected surprises, often forcing her and her friends into battle. In battle, each character has the ability to use unique standard and special attacks, as well as supporting items. By carefully combining their skills, Firis and friends can defeat enemies more swiftly! Chaining abilities fills the Linkage Gauge which ultimately leads to powerful Chain Burst attacks, where all party members get to interlink their moves to deal devastating attacks to their foes and result in impressive finishing blow!
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey also boasts the use of sub-weapons for the first time in the Atelier series. In addition to their main weapon, each character is capable of equipping two types of sub-weapons, each with different skill effect and different types of damage.
New gameplay footage was released today to help introduce the updated combat system featured in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, alongside a batch of screenshots and artwork that further showcase the game’s key battle mechanics. Screenshots also provide a glimpse at some of the interesting people Firis meets along her journey, including the young blacksmith Logy, the bright and energetic Escha, the licensed Alchemist examiner Edel, the minstrel and merchant Luis, and the mysterious Meklet and Atomina!
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 4, Vita and PC via Steam on March 7 of this year.
