Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey Video
A new trailer was released today, offering a first look at the game’s new Atelier Tent system as well as a glimpse at the fresh faces who aid Firis on her mysterious journey: Angriff Dahlmann, an aged and hearty mercenary, and a trio of alchemists – the talented Ren Breitner, the carefree Norbert Classen and the clumsy Dion Maier.
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.
