Today Koei Tecmo and Gust revealed two new characters, new details, and screenshots of the upcoming JRPG Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream.
First of all, we meet two new characters, the former knight commander Diebold and Elvira, the divine existence who created the dream world Elde-Wige. Due to her complex, she never appears to anyone else than Ramizel.
Sophie will visit that world during the game while she searches for Plachta, and that’s where she’ll meet Diebold as well.
In Elde-Wige you can also control the weather by using certain tools, this changes the world opening new paths of exploration and more. Also, the materials that can be gathered change with the weather.
There are also new and larger gathering nodes that trigger a gathering minigame when approached with the right tools. Depending on the results you can get more materials, higher quality, or specific attributes.
You can check out all the images below.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream will release in North America and Europe on February 25, 2022, for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Japanese gamers will get it a day earlier, on February 24.
