Dengeki PlayStation this week introduces three new characters set to join Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, due out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita on September 25 in Japan.
Get the information below.
Leon (voiced by Mayumi Iizuka)
24 years old. A tailor who visits the town by chance. Her attitude might make it seem like she pushes others away, but in reality she’s just bad at expressing her own feelings. She has the utmost confidence in her work. Her weapon is a spear, and she can make use of jamming items.
Julio Sebald Leidenschaft (voiced by Genki Ohkawa)
19 years old. A young knight who came from the neighboring country of Adarett. He has a soft and eloquent demeanor, and his personality is the very picture of sincerity. He is studying alchemy as a result of certain circumstances.
Fritz Weissberg (voiced by Kenyu Horiuchi)
51 years old. A former mercenary that now travels around performing puppet shows. He’s usually calm and settled, but is completly different when it comes to his puppets. He utilizes dual swords in battle, and is weak when it comes to item use.
■ Chase Link System
In the lower left of the screen is a gauge that builds up and lets you use cooperation skills. The gauge increases through attacking and using items, and decreases when an attack lands on you. To trigger a Chase Link, you’ll need to match the stance (offensive / defensive) of each character.
- Offense Act – Put two characters in the offensive stance, and when the gauge reaches a certain level, you can perform this co-op attack. It’s more powerful than the usual support attack.
- Special Attack – Put all characters in the offensive stance and when the gauge reaches its maximum level, you can perform this three-person co-op attack, complete with a cut-in scene.
- Defense Act – Put all characters in the defensive stance and when the gauge reaches a certain level, you can perform this co-op defensive. It not only reduces the amount of damage you take, but recovers HP.
- Special Guard – Put all members in the defensive stance, and when the gauge reaches its maximum level, you can perform this co-op defensive. It springs forth a field that recovers HP for the entire battle area. (We’re assuming this is just for allies.)
