Koei Tecmo's Gust brand revealed on Friday that it will release its Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World (Nelke to Densetsu no Renkinjutsushi-tachi: Arata na Daichi no Atelier) game in Japan physically and digitally on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch on December 13.

Koei Tecmo America and Koei Tecmo Europe will release the game in the West this winter. The game will be available physically on PS4 and Switch, and digitally on PC via Steam.

Koei Tecmo describes the game:

Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World puts players in the shoes of Nelke von Lestamm, a young noblewoman who has always been fascinated by the ancient legend of the Sage of Granzweit; a tale of the Granzweit Tree which is said to bestow great power upon those whom discover it. As she grew up and learned her skills were not in alchemy, she studied hard to become a government official and help those around her. The day Nelke is set to graduate the academy, however, her life changes forever as she hears a rumour that the tree can be found within her father's lands near the small village of Westwald. Her father grants her permission to search for it on one condition – that she becomes governor of the area and develops Westwald into a prosperous city.

NOCO, the character designer from Atelier Sophie and Atelier Firis, returns as the character designer for the game. Mitsuki Nakae performs the game's theme song "Alchemia."
