Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea will be available for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system on January 17, 2017. A selection of assets showcasing these bonuses and the game’s vibrant cast of playable characters were released today, accompanied by a trailer detailing the new event scenarios exclusive to this Plus version of Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea.
Players who purchase Atelier Shallie Plus within its first month of sale – either the physical limited edition available on the NIS America Online Store or digitally through the PlayStation® Store – can dress up their characters in five fresh styles downloadable for free from the PlayStation®Store, including the Administrator Suit, Hero Girl Costume, Cosmo Fighter Costume, Sophie Style Costume and Plachta Style Costume. A special selection of background music will also be available to download for free for early purchasers, featuring choice tracks from the long-running Atelier franchise.
In Atelier Shallie Plus, fans of the series will meet familiar faces from other Atelier titles who aid heroines Shallistera and Shallotte on their journey through the world of Dusk. Returning characters who take on a larger role in Atelier Shallie Plus include Escha Malier, the eccentric specialist of old-style alchemy, Logix Ficsario, the down-to-earth alchemist and government official, and the talented Ayesha Altugle, famously known for her remedies and medications. Players can choose any of these characters to join their party as well as experience brand new event scenarios not present in the original Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea.
