Koei Tecmo has shared new information and screenshots introducing the synthesis system of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, as well as a new gameplay trailer and pre-order bonuses.
Get the information below.
Synthesis is an integral aspect of each Atelier title, and in turn, each alchemist’s adventure! Throughout her unusual journey, Firis will devise handy new recipes as she explores the vast land, encounters new companions, and discovers new materials. To match her wanderlust lifestyle, Firis’s Atelier takes the form of a portable Atelier Tent that enables her to synthesize wherever she may please. The Atelier Tent can even be personalized with a variety of keepsakes from her adventures, making it feel like her second home!
The Synthesis system in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey features exciting new additions to suit its newly nomadic nature. For example, Mass Synthesis allows Firis to create large items to overcome obstacles in her path, such as building a bridge to cross a river, or a boat to cruise across a lake. Deciding what to build not only changes the appearance and accessibility of various locations, but can also affect the course of the story! Furthermore, the effectiveness of items can be amplified with the use of special Catalysts, which grant bonuses and provide greater perks to the end result.
Pre-ordering at Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games or GameStop in North America, or pre-ordering at participating retailers in Europe, unlocks two adorable costumes that provide Firis with useful bonuses: the “Resort Vacation” costume which increases the chances of finding high quality materials for use in synthesis, and the “Wonderland” outfit which decreases the time it takes for synthesis and fast traveling between landmarks!
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is now available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan, and will launch for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC on March 7 in North America and March 10 in Europe.
