Prepare to master new systems in Atelier Lydie & Suelle
Koei Tecmo has revealed the ambitions journal and change agents systems for Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings.
The ambitions journal allows players to track tasks related to the main pillars of the Atelier series: alchemy, synthesis, battle, and character relations. As you complete the tasks in the journal, important quests are unlocked, which will raise twin’s Atelier Rank upon their completion. The rank system will be an important part of the game, as Koei Tecmo’s press release regarding the new tools states, “This rank is extremely important for young alchemists as chances of discovering new paintings increases the more they level up their Atelier – and opening up the opportunity to undertake the ever-necessary alchemy exam, a Promotion Test.”
According to the same press release, the change agent system involves the following, “Change Agents cause coloured tiles to transform into the color of the agent, while Colour Adjacent Agents turn the chosen tile and those next to it into the same colour. Additionally, Connect Agents change all of the tiles connected horizontally, vertically and diagonally to the chosen square into the same colour. Colour All Agents causes all tiles of the same colour to transform into the colour of the agent. Carefully utilising these agents at the right time can ensure synthesised items are even more effective. For example, bombs can have a wider explosive radius and perform more damage; while health items will have stronger healing properties.”
