Even though Atelier Sophie only just launched in the west, Japan is already getting an Atelier Firis release date from Gust, the next and 18th game in the series. Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey will be releasing on both PlayStation 4 & PlayStation Vita in Japan on 29th September 2016.
The game was announced a little while ago, and we’ve already taken a look at some of the new characters in the game.
Beyond the trailer we still don’t know all that much about Atelier Firis yet. The concept of the “mysterious journey” is an interesting one, however, as usually the Atelier games are focused on quite small areas and towns. What does it mean to have a journey in a series like Atelier? It follows on from Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book. Very “mysterious”.
Also, there has still be no news about when Atelier Firis will inevitably head west, but I’d expect we could see it in the same sort of time-frame as other Atelier games. They’re pretty chunky after all, and they do keep managing to get them out year after year.
