This week’s Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book update shares more details on the new characters and “Group Request” system introduced in this week’s Dengeki PlayStation.
Get the details below.
■ Group Requests
Players can take on requests from people who live in town. Among those requests, there are “Group Requests” with greater reward where you’ll take on multiple requests in the same area.
There are also “Vouchers” you could obtain as a reward for clearing both regular and group requests that you can trade in for various items, depending on the number of vouchers you collect. (100 vouchers, for example, will get you a “Date Ticket,” whatever that is.)
Meklet (voiced by Sachi Matsumoto)
Age: unknown. Height: 140cm. Occupation: traveler.
A young boy who appears before Sophie at every opportunity he gets. He’s always doing things together with Atomina.
He’s seemingly looking into alchemy, often visiting the alchemist Sophie, but his intentions are unknown.
Contrary to his childlike way of talking, he can occasionally see through to the true nature of things.
Atomina (voiced by Hina Kino)
Age: unknown. Height: 139cm. Occupation: traveler.
A young girl who appears before Sophie at every opportunity she gets. She’s always doing things together with Meklet.
She’s seemingly looking into alchemy, often visiting the alchemist Sophie, but her intentions are unknown.
Compared to Meklet, she has a quiet personality and lacks emotional highs and lows. However, she’ll sometimes put on the innocent smiling face appropriate for her age.
Tess Heitzmann (voiced by Sayaka Nakaya)
Age: 18. Height: 155cm. Occupation: cafe employee.
The poster girl of a cafe who only works on specific days of the week. She’s the eldest daughter among a group of brothers, and works to support her family.
She conducts herself cheerfully and politely, but she is actually a very hard worker.
Her personality is cheerfulness in itself, but she’s also a troublemaker who tends to cause a variety of problems without considering the consequences.
Tess is saving up money to accomplish her dream of opening up a shop that her whole family can run.
Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is due out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita in Japan on November 19.
If you missed it, the first official gameplay trailer was released earlier this week.
