Koei Tecmo America and Europe announced on Wednesday that it will release Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World in early 2019 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. In addition, Koei Tecmo America announced that it will release the Atelier Arland Series Deluxe Pack digitally for PS4, Switch, and Steam on December 4. The games will be available as a bundle or individually.
The Western release of Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World was previously slated for this winter. The game will have both physical and digital releases for PS4 and Switch.
The game will launch in Japan physically and digitally on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch on December 13.
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."
The Atelier Arland Series Deluxe Pack (Atelier ~ Alchemist of Arland 1•2•3 DX) includes the Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland DX, Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland DX, and Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland DX games and all DLC from their previous versions. The bundle launched physically and digitally in Japan on September 20.
