KOEI TECMO has put out a new trailer for the upcoming sequel to Atelier Sophie, Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream. They’ve also detailed some of the new gameplay features that will be in Atelier Sophie 2. You can check out the new trailer and read up on this new info about the game, down below. Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, is headed to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC via Steam on February 25th, 2022. Also mentioned in this latest press release is that physical copies of the game will include a special reversible cover.

In Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream players will follow Sophie Neuenmuller in the search for her friend Plachta in a mysterious dream-like world known as Erde Wiege. As Sophie makes new friends in town, they set off in search for her best friend Plachta, who has gone missing. Unfortunately, instead of finding Plachta the party uncovers a rift in space that leads them to a mysterious location with no inhabitants in sight. Just as they decide to give up on their search and return to town, Sophie hears a familiar voice, but before she has time to investigate, a water dragon suddenly appears and attacks the group of friends. Luckily, thanks to the arrival of aspiring alchemist Ramizel and a former knight named Diebold, they are saved in the nick of time.

As they continue exploring this mysterious new land further, they meet Elvira, the goddess who created Erde Wiege. Here, Sophie is finally reunited with Plachta, but her friend appears to be lifeless. Does Elvira know the secret behind Plachta’s unconscious state?

Throughout the many adventures in Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, players will encounter environmental obstacles, such as raging rivers, that will stop their progress. Each area of Erde Wiege has pre-determined weather, but thanks to the discovery of the Dreamscape Stones scattered across the land, Sophie and her friends are able to change the weather to help them progress on their journey. Using a Dreamscape Stone to change the weather can drastically change the environment – such as lowering the water level of a once flooded location – as well as uncover new gathering spots with a wealth of unique materials.

When exploring these new locations, players might also discover Major Gathering Spots – spots that allow them to obtain better materials than those found in traditional gathering spots. If the correct gathering tool is equipped when arriving at a Major Gathering Spot, a mini-game will start, and the quality and number of materials gathered will increase according to their results. These mini-games include a fishing rod style game where a certain number of fish must be caught, and a slingshot game where players have to shatter various targets within the time limit. Mastering these mini-games will help in obtaining rarer materials that are extremely useful for synthesis!
