Koei Tecmo Amercia released Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book on June 7 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The PlayStation Vita release was digital-only.

Koei Tecmo describes the game:

Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book follows the exploits of young novice Alchemist Sophie Neuenmuller, who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic book imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold all the secrets to the art of Alchemy, even going on to become Sophie's mentor. As Sophie experiments with Alchemy throughout the story she unravels the book's forgotten memories and eventually sets out to uncover the strange tale of its origin. Uncover the mysteries of Alchemy that have been hidden away and forgotten alongside Plachta, the Mysterious Book, and experiment with the Synthesis system to learn new alchemy recipes at any pace!

The game shipped for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in November 2015 in Japan.

Koei Tecmo America released Nights of Azure in North America on March 29, and Koei Tecmo Europe released the game in Europe on April 1. Both releases were for PlayStation 4 only.

Koei Tecmo describes the game:

Marking a new action-oriented and dark direction for GUST titles, Nights of Azure tells a tragic tale of two friends faced with impossible decisions that will test their loyalty to their quest – and to each other. In the kingdom of Ruswal, very few people leave their homes after nightfall, let alone have the strength and skill to take on the powerful, azure-blooded demons that plague the island. One of the best among these brave few is Arnice, a knight of great skill and power, who is assisted by her friend and priestess Lilysse in a quest to rid the land of these monsters. However, they soon find out that the solution to the island's problems might not be as simple as defeating enemies in battle.

The game shipped for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in Japan in October 2015.
