Koei Tecmo Europe Confirms Western Release of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey


European publisher Koei Tecmo have today announced that the latest instalment into GUST’s Atelier franchise, known as Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, will be making it’s way to Europe next year for the PS4, PS Vita and – in a rather secretive announcement – Steam.

It’s always been known that Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey would be released onto the PS4 and PS Vita within Japan and these same platforms were ‘expected’ if a western announcement was ever made. Steam however is an entirely different matter as neither GUST nor Koei Tecmo have mentioned that it would make it’s way to the PC; but today’s western announcement – and in turn a trailer – confirms that it will be coming to the PS4, PS Vita and Steam.

As explained in the press release this The second entry in the ‘Mysterious’ saga follows the adventures of the enthusiastic Firis Mistlud and her loving older sister Liane Mistlud. The Mistlud sisters have lived their entire lives in the isolated town of Ertona, where Firis uses her unique ability to see where crystals of materials are buried. By way of a fateful encounter, Firis learns of the Alchemy Exam and decides to take her first step into the outside world, setting off on a grand journey to become a certified alchemist and discover the mysteries that life has to offer! Players will experience a vast world with towns, environments and other locations reaching up to ten times the size of those featured in Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.

Koei Tecmo Europe have not announced a release date; but they have released a trailer for the game (as seen below) as well as mentioned that it will be released sometime next year onto the PS4, PS Vita and PC via Steam.
