Adventure Across a World in Ruin in the Atelier Dusk Trilogy, Available Today

Three more adventures to take on

Today, KOEI TECMO America and developer GUST Studios are excited to launch the Atelier Dusk Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch™, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam®. The fan-favorite trilogy includes Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk DX, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky DX, and Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea DX, and will be sold individually, or together in a specially priced Deluxe Pack containing all three games.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk DX is the first title in the series. Set in the land of Dusk, the game takes place on a deteriorating continent that had once enjoyed the height of prosperity through the powers of alchemy. Playing as a young herbalist named Ayesha, players embark on a journey to learn the secrets of alchemy and the glowing flowers in order to bring back Ayesha’s missing sister, Nio. Gamers will be able to keep a record of Ayesha’s adventures through the “weave memories system” where by performing in-game actions, players are rewarded with points used to fill Ayesha’s diary. Depending on what is written, players unlock certain synthesis recipes, bonuses, and more. Record with your own hand the various events that occur throughout your quest to find your sister, then reflect upon those memories as you continue to develop your character throughout the game. By meeting certain conditions throughout your journey, a variety of endings can be achieved.

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky DX is the second title in the Dusk series, and follows the exploits of Escha, an alchemist who uses ancient alchemy, and Logy, and alchemist who studies contemporary alchemy, as they meet for the first time. Working together in the Development Department, the two discover the mystery of the Dusk, and the game enables players to select whether Escha or Logy will be the main character, allowing them to enjoy the story from different perspectives. Escha and Logy’s job is to survey the city, and they are required to complete a large task within four months. There are optional tasks added throughout the game, and by clearing these tasks, they can receive various bonuses such as raising their stats or receiving reference materials earlier than normal, as the two set off to discover the secrets of the Dusk.

The third title in the trilogy, Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea DX, introduces fans to Shallistera – a young girl burdened with a mission, and Shallotte – a girl who befriends Shallistera, but has a hidden ambition. The closer the two friends become, the closer they get to unlocking the secrets of the Dusk. Gamers can play as either Shallistera or Shallotte as the main character to see the storyline through their differing perspectives. Throughout the experience, new things that the character “want to do” or “want to try” emerge. These represent the inner voices of the characters and are referred to as life tasks. Completing these tasks helps advance the story, and if they are completed within a given time frame, bonuses such as EXP can be obtained. Life tasks will change depending on the player’s play style, so everyone can enjoy the journey as they wish, whether they want to put their efforts into synthesizing and completing quests, focus on battle, or simply run around the magical world when they have spare time.

Each entry in the trilogy is packed with a large number of previously released DLC, including additional battle characters, additional bosses and dungeons, extra scenarios, and extra costumes, as well as updates which take advantage of the improved system hardware to deliver high-resolution graphics and new quality of life gameplay improvements. Players will be able to experience the land of Dusk in the most complete trilogy package to date.
