KOEI Tecmo Games' Gust brand began streaming the first promotional video on Sunday for the Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland (Lulua no Atelier ~Arland no Renkinjutsushi 4~) game. The video reveals that the game will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on March 20.
The game's premium box release in Japan features an artbook, two mini character charms, a sound archive disc, and a download serial code for a costume. A special collection box will contain those bonuses as well as a poster and a crystal paperweight.
KOEI Tecmo America will release the game for Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam in spring 2019. KOEI Tecmo America describes the game, which is set several years after Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland:
This heart-warming new entry follows the young Elmerulia Fryxell; an energetic and positive young girl who studies alchemy diligently to live up to the legacy of her mother – the famous Rorona Fryxell. Supported by her close childhood friend, the hardworking and caring Eva Armster, she works hard to fulfill her dream and become a renowned alchemist. Fans of the Arland series will be able to re-meet old characters, and re-explore the land of Arland, to see how the flow of time has changed everything they once knew.
The game will feature new synthesis, battle, and exploration systems. The game will have Arland-style gameplay combined with the latest Mysterious series. Mel Kishida is providing character designs for the game.
The Atelier Arland series is a trilogy of games that are part of Gust's larger Atelier series of games. NIS America released all three original games in English, but KOEI Tecmo released the "Plus" versions.
Gust released Atelier ~ Alchemist of Arland 1•2•3 DX in Japan on September 20. The three games include all DLC from their previous versions. Additionally, the new release includes new features such as additional party characters, costumes, extended game scenarios, bosses, and events that were not in the original releases.
KOEI Tecmo America will also release the Atelier Arland series Deluxe Pack digitally for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam on December 4. The games will be available for purchase individually as well as in the set.
