We’re still finding our way through the silly season of 2016 but Koei Tecmo are already preparing us for 2017.
Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemist of the Dusk Sea is going to receive a ton of launch window content when it hits on January 20th on Vita, including Plus Version content, Event scenarios and additional characters.
If you purchase Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – that’s a mouthful – within the first month of sale, you can get five exclusive styles of costume, including the Administrator Suit, Hero Girl Costume, Cosmo Fighter Costume, Sophie Style Costume, and Plachta Style Costume. There will also be a selection of background music to download for free.
The game features many faces recognisable from the Atelier franchise, including Escha Malier, Logix Ficsario, and Ayesha Altugle. Any of these characters can be selected to join the party from the beginning and take part in event scenarios.
This is the Plus version of the 2015 Atelier Shallie release, which was originally on PS3. You play Shallistera, daughter of a tribal leader who must find a way to help her homeland, and Shallote, an alchemist who is looking to make a big break.
It’s nice to see one of 2017’s first – and biggest releases – is coming to Vita. It’s a great platform and still manages to go from strength to strength.
More on this as we get closer to release.
