Plus, new battle system details and interview tidbits.

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.


  • 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.


  • 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.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    No pictures? Kind of makes me sad. I’d really like to see Slayer. A playable female character over 21! Kind of rare there.

    • Sal Romano

      Scans usually don’t surface till later on. Official screens will be out on Sunday though.

      • raymk

        I had scans yesterday but I’ll post them again for you.

    • Vu Nguyen

      Are you sure it wasn’t the “nice body” part that caught your attention?

      • DichaTesoro

        oh…I did not catch that…that’s a plus, though.

    • raymk

      From the description she is playable and it says she uses earrings for combat. Either way there’s an early pic of her out.

  • Rain

    wait what? Auin Sidered : And he has a crush on the adventurer Leifa.
    Leifa Ruckberry : A young guy with blond hair and a beard

    • Sal Romano

      Yeah, I thought the same. Did a double-take, but yep, both guys. I guess a little yaoi shouldn’t be too surprising?

      • Rain

        i’m okay with this, but i dont remember any rpg game, with “preference” like this on character description, i think.

    • Tetsu

      I caught that too. I guess we got some Ateligay going on this time around lol.

      It might be that he looks up to or admires him.

      • Sal Romano

        Yeah, on second thought, let’s go with that.

    • DichaTesoro

      That caught my attention too—I thought “wow, a 32-year-old woman!” since I read that Auin has a crush on Leifa. Then, “oh.” If the game does go into some yaoi-esque territory, IF, anyone think it would be censored somehow if there’s ever a US release? Hasn’t stuff happened like that before, not necessarily with gay themes, but just other matters that have been censored?
      Oh like Tetsu said, he could just look up to or admire the dude.

  • Nitraion

    Keep it coming actually that 6 player battle system will make this game not boring and remind me of suikoden too… i am kinda bored with 3 man battle system

  • Eclipse

    I’m loving the sound of the battle system (very similar to that of Mana Khemia’s). It just may be the best yet in these newer Atelier games.

    I’m especially liking Slayer’s description – necktie + silver/white hair <3

    • raymk

      There’s actually a scan of her out as well.

      • Eclipse

        Thanks for the scan. ^_^

        Based on her description, I had a feeling that I’d end up really liking her design, and I was right…she looks awesome!

        • raymk

          Yeah me to, and I’m glad she’s playable which I didn’t know at one point. Loving everything I hear about this game so far, I hope its a long game. I also posted better quality scans below on this page now.
