KOEI Tecmo announced today that Atelier Lydie & Suelle: the Alchemists and the Mysterious Painting will be released in North America on March 27, 2018 for PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam.
This next installment to the loved Atelier franchise celebrates the 20th Anniversary for the franchise and summons players to become the best alchemist ever by following the tale of the apprentice alchemist twins Lydie and Suelle. While working with their father to make their atelier the best in town, the outgoing twins surprisingly discover colorful worlds by jumping into magical paintings and soon find that the mysterious paintings hold the residual thoughts of their deceased mother. Traveling through different paintings reveals vivid worlds for the twins – from the light tones of the ethereal ‘Heavenly Flower Garden’, with the falling rain of stars, to the gloomy hues of the not so delightful Halloween-inspired ‘The Spooky Forest’.
Atelier fans who will pre-order the game at select retailers or online via Steam will have an opportunity to receive bonus DLC costumes inspired from legacy alchemists Marie and Erie. The bonus content will also includes an item set full of useful alchemical ingredients and battle-themed music. In addition, those who will purchase the title digitally within 4 weeks from launch from the PlayStation Store will receive two custom themes.
Atelier Lydie & Suelle will be available on March 27, 2018 for PS4, Switch and PC via Steam.
