Koei Tecmo Europe confirms western release of Atelier Firis
Koei Tecmo Europe has confirmed that the latest game in the GUST’s Atelier series, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will be released across Europe in spring 2017 for the PS4 and PS Vita.
According to Koei Tecmo Europe’s press release, Atelier Firis will have a strong focus on player choice as the game’s main character Firis Mistlud can choose one of three paths to follow after she passes her Alchemy exam. The three different paths focus on the three key aspects of the Atelier series – Alchemy, combat and character relationships. While you have to choose one of the three paths, you can switch paths as you venture through the world, “Choice plays a major role in the events that can be experienced throughout the game, with the ability to switch between the three paths at any point during this grand adventure.”

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.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will be available spring 2017, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. While there is mentions a Steam version, there was no word in the press release regarding a PC digital release.
