KOEI Tecmo Games will exhibit the game at Tokyo Game Show 2016 from September 15-18, and the PS4 version will be playable at the event. KOEI Tecmo Games had announced on Thursday that it will release the game in North America and Europe, although the company hasn't given a release date or specified the consoles for the Western release.
KOEI Tecmo describes the game:
The second part in the Mysterious trilogy, Atelier Firis, follows the journey of a young alchemist through an exciting and colorful world. While Firis travels, she learns more about synthesis and alchemy, meets interesting people, and amplifies the feeling of exploration with the immense expansion of the world map!
The game will allow players to choose clothes among a large wardrobe to suit the environment. Characters will be better able to explore sunny areas when wearing cool clothes. Players will be able to collect new recipes, and in-game actions may give Firis a related recipe. The game's item synthesis system will have "catalysts" that can be combined with normal item synthesis to produce powerful effects.
KOEI Tecmo America released the game's predecessor, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Book, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on June 7. The PlayStation Vita release is digital-only. The game shipped for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita last November in Japan.
