Latest Atelier hits Japan in June.

Gust lifted the lid on its latest project at the Dengeki Game Festival in Akihabara today. Codenamed Project A14, the game is the latest entry in the Atelier series. It will launch in Japan this June for PlayStation 3.

Everything including the world, characters, and game system are completely new, from square one. A new illustrator, different from Mel Kishida (who worked on earlier entries), is on the project. Marina Inoue voices the protagonist, and Mariya Ise voices her little sister. The game’s theme is “promise begins.”

A teaser trailer was shown during the game’s stage reveal. Though, it does no more than its meant to. Catch some shots of it below.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou, Game Jouhou, and Famitsu.

Update 2:23am: Twitter user Maxell011 has shared these two images, the first of which shows our new protagonist unmasked.
