Koei Tecmo has announced that Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will feature three new gameplay features built around time, weather, and a life point system.

The time of day and weather condition elements will greatly affect mission completions and material harvesting. According to Koei Tecmo, “The time of day and the weather conditions should be carefully considered before heading out to a mission as some monsters will only show if the time and weather are favourable. Similarly, some necessary materials can only be harvested in specific times and weather conditions.”

The third new feature is a fatigue-based life point system, which according to Koei Tecmo “can weaken attacks when a character has spent too long adventuring, gathering materials, and/or fighting without resting (returning to the atelier).”

To showcase these new features Koei Tecmo has released two new trailers. The first highlights the new features while the second is a gameplay video expanding on the re-vamped Atelier battle system.

Besides the news of the new gameplay features, Koei Tecmo has announced pre-order bonuses for the game. Thos who pre-order Atelier Sophie: the Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will receive one of two different bonus DLC packs; the DLC you receive will be determined by where you pre-order the game. According to Koei Tecmo’s press release, “Those who order through Amazon will receive an in-game background music pack, as well as two delightful Atelier Sophie themes for their PlayStation 4. Independent retailers will be offering a pack consisting of a background music, the Doll Making costume ‘Aqua Suit’, a five-piece set of useful materials and items to be used in synthesis and a theme.”

Those who purchase either the digital PlayStation 4 or PlayStation Vita versions from the PlayStation Store during its first month of release will receive, “two Atelier Sophie themes, as well as an in-game bundle of useful items boosting their attack (uni bag), Hit Points (sweets), or Mental Points (sotea) that can be used on their adventures.”

Atelier Sophie: the Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will be released on June 10, 2016, for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
