Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings follows a pair of alchemist twins (Lydie Marlen and Suelle Marlen). Suelle is carefree and eccentric, while lydie is the more caring and reserved one. The twins work at their family’s atelier alongside their father, but their lack of experience with alchemy means they don’t get too many customers. They do their best to build their alchmeny skills, when they make an unexpected discovery. The pair discovers a mysterious painting so naturally they try to investigate it. As they reach for the painting, they are pulled into a strange new world. It is rich in rare materials that can be used for alchemy.
This, however, is only the start of the alchemist twins’ adventure. Their shared goal is to one day run the best atelier in the whole country.
This latest entry in the series is preceded by Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, and Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey. Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings has not yet been rated by the ESRB, but you can check out the new screenshots below:
