Dengeki PlayStation this week shares new battle system details and introduces three new characters in Gust’s upcoming PlayStation 3 RPG sequel Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemist of Dusk Sky.

Characters

  • Awin Sidelet (CV: Kenji Akabane) – 20 years old, B blood-type, 175 cm tall. A balloon maintenance guy from the tech department. He is a carefree, good-looker with gray hair and glasses, and carries a giant hammer. He is also Escha’s cousin and maintenance guy working for the tech group. He’s popular, having performed maintenance on carriages and public facilities. He has a strong sense of duty and a frank personality. And he admires the adventurer Rafer. Escha calls him “Big Brother.”
  • Threia Hazelgrimm (CV: Chiharu Kitaoka) – 26 years old, B blood-type, 167 cm. Historian. A young lady with a nice body and either silver or white hair. She wears a shirt, jacket, and necktie over a black slip and skirt with a slit in it. A specialist in the field of historical inquiry, she has a bit of alchemical knowledge from her study of relics from the period of prosperity. She can handle dangerous field work with ease. Her weapon is an earring, which she uses as a catalyst for her special “analysis” power.
  • Reyfer Luckberry (CV: Yasunori Masutani) – 32 years old, AB blood-type, 178 cm. Treasure hunter. Cowboy-esque. A young guy with blond hair and a beard. His weapon is a top break revolver. He’s a treasure hunter who wanders the world. He hits it off with the explorers of the ruins, and is himself tackling an excavation. He pokes his nose into anything that seems interesting.

Battle System

  • Up to six people can participate in battle.
  • Party can use support moves as much as remains in the lower right gauge.
  • When your allies use chain attacks, the damage amount increases, so tactical importance will be placed on combos.

Interviews

  • Rie Murakawa (voice of Escha)
    • The way they recorded was different from doing anime since one person’s lines are rounded up and done at once.
    • Escha and Logy have a brother-sister-like relationship.
    • The set-up for the end has to do with Logy’s past. There is a memorable scene where Escha gets emotional with Logy.
    • The funny scenes are funny to a worrisome degree.
  • Yuuki Tanaka (Scenario Planner)
    • There’s going to be a NicoNama streaming show.
    • Concerts have also been slated.
