Koei Tecmo has released a new blast of Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea details, footage, and screenshot, introducing second protagonist Shallote Elminus, more NPC characters, and the bonuses you’ll get for pre-ordering the game at participating retailers.
Get the information below.
- Shallotte Elminus – called Shallie by her friends, is a poor young alchemist with big dreams. She spends her days running her deceased father’s small Atelier and doing whatever work she or her loving mother Nady can find for her through her contacts. Though she doesn’t have a lot of experience or knowledge of alchemy she is very keen to learn and she spends a lot of time discovering and synthesising new items. Luckily, Shallotte’s childhood friend Miruca Crotze is a very good alchemist.
- Miruca Crotze – A very good alchemist and Shallotte’s childhood friend. She studied in Central city and though this has caused her to develop a colder and more distanced personality she still admires Shallie’s honest and simple thinking. Miruca is a proven researcher and a devoted friend and she always says her opinion frankly, though sometimes this makes her seem a little harsh.
- Wilbell Voll-Erslied – A travelling magician who, after she assists Shallie, becomes a role model and an instructor for her. Wilbell is travelling the land of Dusk in search of spirits that offer her powerful magic. Her child-like appearance might fool some, but she is actually quite old and seasoned and provides Shallie with good advice and valuable help. These are not the only people Shallie crosses paths with in her efforts to become successful. She also has to deal with government officials like Solle Grumman.
- Solle Grumman – A hard working young man sent to investigate the town of Stellard and establish a government branch office.
Working with Characters
Shallotte must learn to tame her wild and free spirit and work with merchants and treasure hunters. By learning how to apply the knowledge and skills of those around her and win their assistance, Shallotte will embark on a journey to adulthood and focus on her ongoing effort to eventually become the alchemist she has always dreamed of being.
- Katla Larchica – A troublesome merchant who never seems to sell anything that works and rely on treasure hunters like the cool and collected homunculus Homura.
- Homura – A treasure hunter whose skill with the sword is near unparalleled or the romantic Reyfer Luckberry.
- Reyer Luckberry – A treasure hunter who searches for the long lost treasure of a famous pirate.
- GameStop – Those who pre-order through GameStop will receive an exclusive DLC set that includes: a costume for their leading lady fashioned after that of Escha Malier (the protagonist of Atelier Escha and Logy), a Flower Pareo costume, a special Atelier series selection of music and a Passion Dress.
