Koei Tecmo America announced on Tuesday that it will release the Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World game in North America on March 26 and Koei Tecmo Europe announced that it will release the game in Europe on March 29. The game will be available physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and digitally for PC via Steam.

Koei Tecmo America began streaming a research gameplay trailer.

The Western collector's edition will be exclusive to the NIS America online store in North America and Europe. It will contain a hardcover artbook, the game's official soundtrack, a cloth poster, an acrylic standee featuring the main character Nelke, and a collector's box.

The game will ship for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch in Japan on January 31 after a delay from December 13. The Western release was previously slated for this winter.

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."
