Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World - info on expeditions and visiting residents

Very early today, we shared a new batch of screens for Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World. Usually those screen dumps come with a wave of new info. We now have a translation of those details, which you can find below.


Expeditions

On days off, you can spend time at your own leisure. Whether you invite residents on an expedition outside of town or visit them in town, take a breather while aiming to realize your dream of finding the sage’s relic.

—In order to open up new expedition routes, it is essential to make it to the final point of preceding expedition routes. After that, you can invest in development to be able to extend your activities to the next, new expedition route.

—As you make your way through expeditions, you will visit various locations such as forests, ruins, and snowy mountains. New materials can only be obtained through expeditions. Some materials acquired through expeditions can be grown in newly cultivated land.

—By going thorough expeditions, you can obtain various materials. However, time is limited, so you may sometimes need to hurry along if you want to make it to the final expedition point.

—You can take the characters of previous Atelier titles along on your expeditions!

—Combine their strengths to get through the expedition!

Visiting Residents

As you deepen your interactions with characters and increase their friendship levels, you will be able to see a series of episodes with those characters. Prioritize and visit the characters you want to become closer with, and go through their events until the very end.

—Since days off are limited by time, the player must decide whether to prioritize going on expeditions or visiting residents.

—Lita, who is not feeling well, and Klein, who is worried about Lita. Nelke is also concerned, but those two will remain stubborn unless they manage the situation themselves.

—Rose and Ulrika get into a fight over something strange. After involving Nelke and the others, it develops into a certain game…!
