Info: Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
With this game seeing a release on 27th june in Japan & then subsequently having a localisation confirmed for our shores on the 7th March next year (11th for the US) I thought Id gather some info together for a small update. As you no doubt know by now, Atelier Escha & Logy will allow players to choose between two protagonists. The main storyline though will remain the same regardless of who is chosen it seems, but certain events and endings will only be available with a particular character. Escha’s story focuses on the traditional alchemy RPG and everyday adventures of an alchemist whereas Logy’s story is said to be a more serious adventure focused on world exploration. The two protagonists Escha and Logix use different kinds of tools to synthesise which would no doubt mean different slightly mechanics regarding the alchemy system. I'm hoping to come across more information on this title a Little closer to release as there seems to be little available at the moment considering the game is already available in Japan. There is also an anime adaptation been announced and is planned to be released in 2014. Looks like 2014 may be good for the Atelier fans out there.
Here's some lengthy in-game footage (clocks in about 29 minutes, may contain SPOILERS) -
